i created a tutorial today to share a couple of ideas to use up the scraps from your kit each month. for my tutorial and cards, i used strips of pp that had been cut from other projects and not thrown away.


so let's get started

(click pics to enlarge)










here is the first card i created using these butterflies cut from the pp strips



birthday wishes card








don't throw away the negatives either, because they are really cool looking and make for fun cards


birthday wishes negative card



on this card, i used the negative that was created from die-cutting two of the butterflies.





i also had a negative from the third butterfly used in the first card and used that on this card



birthday wishes card
(yes, i have needed some birthday cards :) )







but wait!

maybe you have a fun tag die that you would like to use


easter wishes card






and the negative was just as fun with this shape too and perfect for the teacher thank you card i needed :)


thank you teacher card

  12. I always save the little strips at the end of the 12 by 12 papers (with the manufacturers name on one side and a pretty design on the other), and this is such a lovely way to use them up. Thanks for the idea. All your cards are lovely. I also loved your little touch- the white pom-pom on the bunnies!
