What to do with DSP Scraps

Greetings all,

It's been a crazy week. My 89 year old mom fell twice in the past week, had two trips to the ED, a three night hospital stay and is now in rehab; I don't think she'll be able to go home again. Lots of decisions and emotions. I have firmly come to believe that aging is not for sissies. 

I did manage to get some RnR in my craft space and work on projects for my Saturday open house.

If you live in my corner of the world, contact me to reserve materials and pop in on Saturday between 10 & 1. I'd love to see you.

My January 5th post featured my Occasions catalog swap card. 

After making 32 cards, I had a pile of die cut hearts that I didn't know what to do with, but figured I'd find a use for them - and I did!!

The Sending Love Suite made creating these cards oh so easy. The card base measures 8 12/" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I trimmed 1 1/4" from the 'front' edge. The DSP panel on the front measure 2" x 5 1/4" and the DSP on the inside measures 1 1/4" x 5 1/4". I just layered the hearts on the edge of the cardstock.

The sweet little envelope and decorative note come from the Sealed With Love Bundle. I will be using that envelope framelit on lots of projects!

I like how these turned out and I used everyone one of the hearts in my stash! Do you own the balloon punch? Fill the edge of a birthday card with balloons or use stars for a celebratory card, multi-colored circles or squares would be equally as fun. Mix solid cardstock with DSP for a unique creation.

I challenge you to pull out your scraps and CASE (copy and share everything) this card adding your own touches.

Stop back tomorrow to see two additional samples using my scraps.

Until then, take gentle care,
