Tuesday’s Tip…Scraps from a Sketch

Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!

My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading ;)

And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:

Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:

Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies.  Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice.  Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.

AND ..last but not least…

My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are  like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk.  So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.

So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road.  All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.

Remember when we made seed paper back in the spring ?  Design Team Member Char Dobson has another take on that project!!!
We are going to make a handmade paper bowl – a perfect place for keeping coins, trinkets or treasures.
Follow steps #1 through #5 for making paper on THIS blog post.
We are now going to add three easy steps.
Step #1: After straining water from the paper pulp, press and form it around the strainer to make a bowl shape.
Find a safe, well-ventilated area to let the contents completely dry.
This may take several days.
Here is what ours looks like after two days of drying time.

Step #2: Trim bowl edges if necessary.

Prepare your work area – we just use and old plastic placemat.

Cover the entire bowl with Modge Podge, first one side and then the other.

Let dry overnight.

Step #3: Your finished project!

Such a great way to use those scraps of cardstock!
