More Quickies

A couple weeks ago I had posted a number of cards that I'd made using scraps - I said that it was going to be a "go-to" layout for me, and here's proof that I wasn't kidding :)

I just love how quickly these come together. On this one, I used some Memory Box paper as the base, then layered on a sentiment and a punched strip. Another little tip: I cut a tiny strip of that sage cardstock to thread through the button rather than leaving it "naked."

On this card, I did add a bit of patterned paper along the spine to break things up a bit... The bottom of the peachy panel was also masked off and hit with glimmer mist - couldn't capture it in the photo, but I promise it's gorgeous. A trio of collage printed Prima flowers, a sentiment, and it's good to go.

Hope you're having a fabulous week ~ I probably won't be back until Monday or Tuesday as my son has early release from school these next 2 days, plus we'll be celebrating his birthday this weekend. Lots of things pulling me in all directions!

Ooh, your first card is so lovely and rich feeling, and the second has the black polka dots which are so trendy! Great cards using scraps.
