Scrap It | Let's Get Hopping #32



Hello and welcome to another Let's Get Hopping blog hop. The challenge set for this month's hop was to create with the scraps leftover from other projects. Whether it be thin strips of cardstock off cuts, stamped or die cut images that didn't quite look right on even the leftover card from where a shape has been punched or die cut out, I'm sure we all have a stash of scraps that we just can't bear to throw away in case they can be used later. 

Now the interesting thing about my project for you today is that it's been created using the scraps from a card that ended up being scrapped. (You know those cards that look great in your mind but in reality are terrible 😆) 


So have you worked out what the scraps are? Well believe it or not, the scraps are the water-coloured petals in the sunflower. When working on the original project that didn't make it off my desk I had water-coloured and die cut a sunflower with the intention to use the outline portion of the sunflower but as I was popping out the petals I couldn't bear throw them away. So instead of discarding them I die cut another outline in Cinnamon Cider and set about putting together the jigsaw puzzle. A little tip if you plan to have a go at this technique yourself, make sure you cut out a solid sunflower shape to glue the outline and little petal pieces to.



Inspired by the TGIF Challenge Blog Sketch for this week I trimmed an inch off the edge of the card front so the piece of In Good Taste DSP on the inside of the card was peeking out. 



Next up in the hop is my super talented friend, Alicia Yap. I can't wait to see the creative ways she has used scraps.

Until next time
