Using more Scraps

Hello Blog friends followers and anyone who just landed here.  You are all welcome in my little corner of Blogland.  
I did a card on Wednesday showing just a square of card that was left after a project.  Yesterday I did Oldie for Friday showing a box that was made using "bits" of card.  I love to challenge myself trying to use up "bits" if I don`t have anything in particular to make.   When I finish a project I cut all ragged edges off the left overs before putting them to one side to use there and then or in the Bit Box.  The only thing is, if I put them in the Bit Box I tend to forget about them.
Here are a couple of cards made from "left over bits"

The bigger card is 5x5
Lilac card from Papermill Direct
Piece of the Vintage Rose Card from "The Works"
Presscut Happy Birthday Die 
Smaller card is not quite 4x4 it was also a leftover bit
Piece of the card, I decoupaged the rose from other bits.
For You sentiment from I think is Crafters Companion

You get two sheets of each design in the 12x12 pad from The Works.
I have used both of the above design.   Looks like I will have to order another Pad, I just LOVE that design.
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
Have a Great weekend
Till next time

  9. Hi Patricia, Fabulous cards made from your 'bits'. I know what you mean if you put them in your bit box, you forget them. I'm the same, I have a few boxes but unless they're in sight, I reach for a new sheet of card. I really must 'do as you do' haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  10. Look so pretty, lovely rose paper.
    I,m trying to make a card with left over bits every time I cut into a fresh piece of paper, immediately use the cut off bits instead of putting it in the drawer, xxx

  11. Hello Patricia,
    Nobody would know these lovely creations were made from leftovers! They are both beautiful. These are lovely papers! I made a card this week from the old bit box but only because I was tidying up. Need to do so more often! Xxx

  12. Well you wouldn't think they were left over bits Patricia, both cards are beautiful and well done for using your scraps too.

    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x
