Scrap Cards

Here is a great idea for using your scraps (be honest, you know you have them!!!)-
make a scrap card! I run a card base through my
Xyron machine so that the whole surface is sticky.
Attach strips of paper in random designs.
 Works great if you attach the first one at a diagonal
then you don’t have to worry about whether or not it is straight.
Change up the directions if you want to as well. I sometimes make these
when I have lost my "crafty inspiration"
Attach adhesive to card base using Xyron machine
A whole group of scrap cards I knocked out while binge watching one of my shows

Finished product. Ready to go use on a card.  Can be embossed if desired

This is the back of the card, trim off the excess scrap strips and save for other cards

Recent creations

I am trying to get out of a funk...creatively and just in general!  I have done some creating recently (in the past 6 months is "recent") but not as much as I would like since I have been dealing with health issues.  I am also in transition between having a dedicated craft room and using the kitchen until I move into a different craft room in the next couple of months.  SO ...in order to jump start my creativity and add some accountability I am going to try to blog again (not that I have never been very consistent in blogging either) and also do more YouTube video tutorials as well.
