Jingle Belles Rock #28 - Holiday Leftovers

This week the Jingle Belles have asked us to use scraps to make our cards. Scraps - I haz 'em. Here's the specifics: We're asking you to create a card using all of those little leftover pieces of paper, alphabet letters, stickers, ribbon ... you know, those things you save because they're just too cute to throw away. I think I can do this.

I store my Basic Gray scraps in the front of their original 6x6 pad (one less thing for me to think about), so I dumped out my eskimo kisses scraps and here's what I had:

LOTS of potential here. I made two cards from these parts. Here's the first one:

I even stamped the snow man (from Paper Smooches) on a white scrap. And the sentiment was left over from a previous effort.

Here's the second one:

For this background, I cut what I could into 1" strips, cut THOSE into 1" strips and stuck them offset onto a piece of printer paper to make a quilt-y look. The moose and sentiment are from a Kim Hughes CHF Christmas set. Love that moose. He's stamped on a scrap of Basic Grey basics vanilla paper.

Now get out YOUR scraps and make a Christmas card for this week's Jingle Belles Rock challenge. You know you want to. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
