Making Old New

If you have been scrapbooking or cardmaking for any length of time you are bound to have a stash of left over papers, embellishments, beautiful stamp sets, etc., etc., etc.,  but what do you do with those scraps?

I would like to challenge you to create with your stash this weekend.  Take just a few minutes to create anything you like, cards, layouts, wall decor, etc., with your leftovers and show me what you have made. You can post your pictures to our facebook page  - Scrappin with Heather Hicks.  If you haven't friended the page yet, you will need to that first.  I will hold a random drawing for all who have showed off their artwork by Sunday 9pm and send the winner a special prize to the winner.

To help get you thinking, I wanted to show you two cards that I created recently with my scraps.  As you know, the end of the school year is quickly approaching.  Our homeschool tutorial just ended for the school year and we graduated our 6th graders onto high school.  As per our tradition, we give our students a small gift card at graduation. I created the following cards to give them with their gift cards.

The Boys:

I created these with my Scholastic scraps and some Kraft paper.  The I used several stamp sets including: Pinwheel, For Every Occasion and January's Stamp of the Month, This Moment.  I added a little bit of bling with Gold Glitter Paper and Triangle Studs

For the Girls:

I actually made this card as a make-n-take for a crop I attended in January but I had a few of the supplies left over so, decided to use them for the girls graduation card.  Here I used the Blushed papers, Lagoon Hearts Washi tape, This Moment stamp set, Silver Glitter Paper and used the Arrow Embossing Folder on the White Daisy paper. 

I am at my scrapbook retreat this weekend in Scottsboro AL and am having the attendees do a few activities with scraps as well. So, check back often as I will post pictures of what they have created too.  

In the mean time, get creating and post your artwork to the Facebook page. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
