WOYWW 146

On the old desk today, okay technically it is still night for me and I plan on getting in some late night scrapping, is some bits and pieces leftover over from Sunday's crafting session. I hate to throw away scraps, but I know that if I put them away, they will never get used. I am a realist. I usually try to use them up by making cards or other small projects while I already have the supplies out.


With these scraps, I decided to get ahead start on making my Mother's Day cards. I know that it is still quite a bit aways, but I felt that this paper would lend itself well for that, and why not be done with it if I can? I love the simple design which was easy to duplicate.


Below is another card from my self-imposed challenge. I bought the We R Memory Keepers Easter 6x6 pad, the rub-ons, and the crocheted doilies a few weeks ago. I wanted to see how much I could make using these supplies. I am not that good at doing whimsical, but since I wanted to use as much as possible, I decided to give it a try. I like how this came out. I used the baby chick and lamb rub-ons on a 6x6 paper that I trimmed the frame off and used the center wood grain part. I added a few letter stickers for my sentiment and it was done. I am all for the quick and easy cards.

Card #11

Oh that's such a cute LO of winifred, and what a great name! I'm liking the bunch of scalloped edge cards I can see atop your paints, Im a bit scared of them, I bought a packet years ago and have never used one!

The scraps are hard to keep ahead of, I make myself make one or two cards a week using no new paper or card for matting and I'm getting very good at checking in the scrap box for card stock for matting or a scrap for a sentiment etc. Lovely cards, always a good idea to get things made while you're thinking about it.

Pretty cards there, we've just had our Mother's Day here in the UK. I'm sure your's will be appreciated.
I read your previous post and while I'm pleased that a whole host of nasty illnesses have been ruled out, let's hope the antibiotics have a good and swift effect on your system.

Hello Dani, I'm exactly the same, out of sight, out of mind! Your Mother's Day cards look fab and don't look as though they were made with scraps at all. The miss you card is so sweet too.

Thanks for already visiting my desk this week WoYwW #8

Nice papers and compositions. Good working space too - there's something focused about a space that holds only the current project.

Great cards...love the Winnifred layout on the table. I always drool over those metal scrolled baskets that hold your supplies!
Thanks for kind comments. DH is watching the game and sent me off to my computer...I think I talk too much and move around to much for him to enjoy the game! haha
He is till sleeping a lot but all in all, much better!

Sue Althouse said...

Lovely cards! I also like to keep going until there is practically nothing left. I don't tend to go back to scraps once I've move on.
