Use up your DSP scraps!


The countdown is beginning for the new Stampin' Up! 2014-2015 Annual catalogue, so I have been thinking up new ways of using some of my stash. 

I gather I am not the only person to have a stack of patterned paper from pre-SU days....I just can't seem to part with it as I am a craft-supplies-hoarder.....don't judge me! :)

Anyway...here's a couple of cards that are guaranteed to inspire you to use up some itty bitty scrap pieces. 

This one was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch (which I am too late to link to sadly)...

It uses little scraps of old patterned paper pieces + some scraps of Melon Mambo, a number '10' that I had previously die cut and discarded, and a Petite Petals flower that I found on my desk. :)

My next card was inspired by the sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping this week. Rather than stamp the horizontal lines, I thought I would use a strip of 12' patterned paper, cut into 3 pieces (4 inches per piece). I thought it was such an effective way to use up old scrappy paper. :)

So, my challenge to you is this....to make room for all the cool stuff from the next catalogue....get in there and USE UP your patterned paper. You will thank me for it. :)

Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter (see my side bar) to get the skinny on the upcoming catalogue. 

Just email me if you would like to go on my mailing list for your FREE copy. :)
