What do you do with your scraps?

For the longest time I used to hand on to every little scrap of paper/cardstock I had left after a project but it soon became a big box of unused stuff and no idea what I had in there so I decided I would hang on to my scraps for a month and reserve one day a month to use them up and making cards... I wish I could say kept this up over the year but I would be lying! So, tonight I decided it was time to break open that box and start using up those scraps..... Here is my first card for the night..

I hope this inspires you to use up those scraps and build a nice supply of card!



  1. What a fun and cute card. Great way to clean out those scraps.

  3. Your card is Amazing!!!Tee!You are AWESOME!!!

  4. Awesome idea, Tee. Love this card style.

  5. I hold onto all of my scraps and use only scraps on any cards that I make. I just need to make more layouts and/or cards because I have been looking at the same scraps way too long and I need to have some new scraps to play with.

    I really like your card, Tee. I love all the different papers that you used. Looks like a fun card to make.

Cricut Flower Shoppe - Flowers

For the last several weeks I have been playing with the Flower Shoppe cartridge trying to come up with 10 unique flowers for a class I am doing. I am so happy with the results.

I am writing up directions for each flower and will post later.


Fight Like a Girl - Free SVG File

Many of you know my Sister-in-Law was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. On Facebook someone posted a picture I knew would make a great SVG file so I whipped one up.... You can get the free file by clicking "Here". Would love to see if you make something with it.

3D Teacup - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2

I am in love with the new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge Cricut came out with but wasn't so excited about going out and buying a new housing for my Cricut to score. I remembered someone posting that you can 'flip' an old blade around in the existing housing and use it to do your scoring. Well, I gave it a try and loved the results....

WARNING: Practice with some old paper that is the same weight as you will be using on your project. I had my pressure up to high and my paper ripped.

In the area?? I will be doing a make-n-take this Wednesday, March 21st at Hearts-n-Crafts between 10:30 and 1pm for $5.

Special thanks to Amy from for the inspiration...
