What Can I Say? I’m Scrappy


If you do any scrapbooking,  you know you always have a bunch of pieces of ‘this and that’ left over from your many projects. I don’t know why, but I just hate to pitch anything. With the darkness of an Alberta winter comes the bright light of the craft room. There are entire magezines dedicated to Card Making but usually I just wing it. Here’s a few I came up with. I decided to gift them in a clear canister I bought at Michael’s.

It’s fun to think of a new ways to use the same papers and tidbits, so I usually make several in a series.


Putting it all together as a gift is easy breezy.  I added charms and ribbon to the canister and decorated a dollar store gift bag. Don’t forget to use your stamps on the envelope too, it’ll be extra special  What can I say?  I’m scrappy.

  1. What a great idea putting them into a canister and gifting them. I love those “paint can” canisters, but could never figure out a way to use one. Delightful.

    I’ve taken a few card making classes and come home with lots of enthusiasm, but I lose interest after awhile because if have to count and measure. I like this idea of free-form cards. I’m inspired.

Talk nerdy to me………..
