The Don't Throw It Away Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Over on the Moxie FabWorld Blog here:
We were challenged to use our items that we don't want to throw away!!
I am REALLY bad about cutting up my patterned papers and then saving the different images that are on them. I have a WHOLE stack of different decorative paper pieces that have been cut up and I can't seem to throw them away because of the FUN Images that are on them and I have ALWAYS had the intention of using them on cards or other projects and then I end up just using NEW pieces of paper instead of using my scraps. I also have a collection of embossed images that I have stamped and embossed. When I am stamping and embossing I ALWAYS stamp SEVERAL images at once that way if I need them or mess one up I have a few extras ready to use!! I keep them in an envelope and I am trying to use them so when this challenge came up I decided to use a combination of things from several of my stash piles!!

 Here is what I came up with!! =)

The decorative paper is from House of Three and Pink Paislee collection and I had put it in my stash because I KNEW I couldn't throw it away!! I had a couple punched border pieces that I had lying around and I added them for more texture. I had the mini rose trim piece in my stash and it was the perfect size for the card!! I then added a MME wooden butterfly and added one of the embossed doilies that I had left over from another project I had worked on!! I added a MME cardstock brad to the center and it finished the card off perfectly!!
I LOVE that I was able to make such a CUTE card with mostly scrap pieces from my stash that I just couldn't throw away because of how cute they were!! =) I ended up making a whole set of cards and gave them away for EASTER!! I hope you'll look at your supplies and find a FUN way to use those items that you just CAN'T THROW AWAY!!
THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
