From Trash to Treasure-Aspen Blog Hop

Howdy and welcome to the Club Scrap Aspen Blog Hop...
I'm doing this post a little ahead of time so I'm not 100% sure where you hopped from but you can always head to Club Scrap Creates if you need some blog hop direction.

This month I was lucky enough to be asked to create some cards as the Guest Artist.  I was really honored to do it and tried to come up with a couple tricks and ideas for you.  One idea was to use the "leftovers" from the Embellishment Cut-Outs to create some accents for the cards.

So I used this...


And I cut them like this...

Now you can see they aren't all perfect, that's ok, I just worked with what I had, covered up any areas that were a little out-of -whack and I used them like this...

Such cute accents for something that usually would have ended up in the garbage!

AJ and MaryAnne were too content on their heated blanket with a Packers throw on top of it (that my mom made) and they didn't want to help out, but they did eat my leftover cut-out scraps...just to be sure nothing went to waste.


Merry Christmas and Happy Blog Hopping...I've really enjoying being involved with the hop this year and can't wait to see what next month brings!  Now it's time to head over to Tiare at iclassygirl.

Love, Janet, Leslie, AJ and MaryAnne

    I know, it's difficult dis-guarding those diecuts, you put them into great use. I'll be doing this all the time now!

  14. Love your thriftiness! Using the scraps made for some great cards, and your discipline in using them NOW instead of adding them to your stash for later is even more impressive!
