I have been on a cycle in scrapping for a week. I am scrapping scraps! I pulled out my Iris case which houses all my scraps and set it on my desk to pull from and to scrap a layout using only scraps. It was sort of a challenge to myself. Well 3 layouts later and I am still scrapping scraps!
I bought the MME Collectables collection at Archivers last week. I love the papers and have added them to my recent blog wins from Echo Park. I won 2 months in a row and received For the Recorded 2, both collections. Then I had bought 2 Authentique on sale collections. I am stocked for a while on paper when it is added to my stash. So why the scraps?
I have a case full and that is as far as I am willing to let it grow. We will be moving in slightly over a year and I am trying to get all of my supplies into a concise and managable amount. I don't like looking at all the clutter of the supplies so they must be hidden away since this will be in my living/dining room.
So back to the scraps. This is the first layout I had done using just scraps.....Love this picture of Logan and didn't want it to be overwhelmed with product.
This one is using black as a background. I now know that I am going to stick to the lighter backgrounds for my pages. I just like them better. Once again this is done from scraps that I used with my cameo to cut the arrows.
The last layout is done on kraft cardstock. I now think that white and kraft will be my go to when I want a solid background. I like using ledger and softer tone on tone papers for backgrounds also. I am experimenting with styles and how I use my supplies. I have never been one to use stickers. Even though that is what drew me into the craft......walls and walls of Mrs. Grossman stickers. I never used more than a couple of stickers. I also didn't use a lot of pre-made embellishments and usually did my own. So these are the left over stickers on the collection sheet from Bella Blvd.
I would like for you to visit with Tammy at www.lifeinterruptedthenscrapped.blogspot.com for more inspiration. I love her work and have enjoyed being a classmate in Shimelles classes at www.Shimelle.com . Have a great week!
