Cute Card Idea for Using Up Paper Scraps

I don’t know about you but last week was crazy busy for me!  I had 2 classes, a craft fair, Halloween events, and the usual everyday life stuff (if you are curious to see some of what I’ve been working on, I’ve been posting pictures up on my Facebook page here).  It was one of those weeks that by Sunday morning I was trying to figure out what to start catching up on first (let me say that the house did not win the coin toss for what I worked on first Winking smile)

But I finally got lots of photos taken of projects and started editing them and just HAD to share with you one of the cards we made on Friday.  It was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Jennifer Rzasa from 2011 and I think it turned out super cute and is the perfect way to use up paper scraps!

And the fun bright colors from the I Am Me designer paper just make me smile when I look at them.

All you have to do to make a card like this is to:

  1. Pick up to 7 patterns from designer paper you like
  2. Punch out 1” squares using the square punch in each design
  3. Cut out 1-1/8” squares from coordinating cardstock
  4. Round two opposite corners on each square using the corner rounder punch
  5. Adhere to your card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  6. Stamp a sentiment and you are done!

See, totally easy peasy!  And seriously, how fabulous is that “Smile” sentiment with the camera pattern designer paper? hee hee

Stampin’ Up! Supplies Used
Stamps:  Happy Day
Ink:  Calypso Coral
Paper: I Am Me designer paper, Whisper White cardstock, Smoky Slate cardstock
Accessories:  1” Square punch, Corner Rounder punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Ok, I’ll be back tomorrow with more fun for you once I get a few more photos edited!  Talk to you then!
