Whenever possible I try to play over in Pixies Crafty Workshop. There are just a couple of rules...no more than 3 cards submitted per week and you must use snippets.
This is a great way to challenge you to use up some scraps. I used to never give my scrap drawers a thought and just merrily go along creating more and more "leftover" pieces. Now I check my snippets files before I cut into a new piece of paper. It is amazing how many times you can use these pieces in your card design.
Although my card is totally made of snippets...I only have one snippets of my own used on it...Puzzled?
Well, when our local scrapbook store moved location they had a wonderful clearance sale. They had card kits, and even random packages of coordinating snippets and stickers etc...all for pennies. I think a paid $1.50 for a huge baggie of this wonderful vintage ornament papers. I think it looks very 1950's. I was born in the 50's so I remember! teehee
But my vintage card as a modern twist as included in the packet was this wonderful chalkboard look sticker and this fab little banner. Funnily enough, I had already bought that sticker sheet with the banner etc and used it on a Penny Black image Christmas card last year. I was so delighted to find it again and get it for such a bargain. Best of all I have enough left for at least a couple more cards.
