Three Cards from Scraps

I'm sure I'm not alone in having bags and boxes of scraps - scrapbook paper leftover from a layout, extra backgrounds made when trying a technique, offcuts of card, extra die-cuts ......!!!

This week I grabbed one of these bags and challenged myself to make some cards using these scraps.

This cocktail was cut out, using a freebie SVG file, the first time I tried 'print and cut' on the Silhouette ecutting machine. The cardstock was offcuts and I added glossy accents, gems, glitter (to the lime) and I cut out the sentiment.

Here I used scraps from Graphic 45 paper left from a project kit from my local crop months ago. The tag was one that at some stage  I distressed, stamped with compasses...and shoved in a bag of scraps! I cut some of the paper into banners and dry embossed the teal card.

Here we have offcuts of card, digital patterned paper I printed out and didn't use, die cut trees and torn kraft paper altered with paint and text stamp (leftover from a project). The only thing I used that was not in the scrap bag is the sentiment.

Since I don't throw away anything and cut out papers hidden behind the panels I've got loaaaaaads of scraps. I'm addicted to DPs, don't want anything go to waste, and also cutting out papers from where they're going to be hidden allows my cards not to be heavier than necessary.
The cocktail one really caught my eye, with its bright colors and sequins... Love the vintage style of the seaside one and the retro look of your tree card.
