What to do with DSP scraps that you just can't throw away?

I know there are many DSP hoarders out there. We see it and have to have it. It's so pretty to look at. It's a great deal on the Clearance Rack. We used almost the whole pack, but not quite. Oh no! here comes the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration freebies and there is more beautiful paper that I need. Is it time for DSP Anonymous?
I went through my stash and challenged myself to take out my 'leftovers' and create until the last snippet was gone. It's great having everything coordinate - that takes one challenge off the plate. For those who have a hard time using only one side of the DSP, these samples allow you to let both sides of the paper shine! When my projects are finished, I take great pride in the fact that my garbage has no paper big enough for any use (I get excited about the craziest things!)

I challenge you to go, grab your scraps and start playing. I'd love to see what you create. Email a photo of your project to me at rnrstamping@gmail.com.

Enjoy your RnR!

Take gentle care,

Welcome to RnR Stamping!

Many thanks to Patsy Waggoner for the beautiful design for my blog. I'm new to the blogging world and would have been challenged to get started without her expertise. 

Over time, I want to share with you the many ways I rest and relax with Stampin' Up! I welcome your input and suggestions and thank you for joining my SU! journey.

Each week, SU offers a number of products at a terrific price. The offer runs Tuesday through Monday while supplies last. This week a feature item is the Backyard Basics framelits set. To order any of these sale items or any other SU! products, click here.

Today I want to share with you the card I made for my new great-nephew, Jaxon who was born last week. I love making explosion boxes; they make quite a statement. 


I found the cradle tutorial online. Note the stamped design on the cradle compliments my blog header. I love my pinecones!

Thanks so much for stopping. Have a great week!

Take gentle care,
