Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's Rebecca, here with today's blog post. Making handmade cards is a wonderful way to use up leftover scraps. Here is a card I made using just that...scraps!

This card came together quickly and easily and would be perfect for a birthday or "just because".

  •  I began by stamping and die cutting the leaves and flowers.
  • Using a blending tool, I added color to the leaves using Light Moss.
  • I used rolling tools to mold the flower and added elements to the center.

I die cut a frame out of patterned paper.

I cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base and adhered a piece of celery green patterned paper.

Next, I glued the die cut frame to the card base.

I die cut greenery from different scraps

  • I glued the flower in the bottom left corner.
  • Next,I added the large leaves.
  • I added the silver metallic sprigs and then the green sprigs.
  • I took the red berry die cut and snipped it apart and layered it over the leaves.
  • Finally, I added the sentiment.

And there you have it...a quick and simple card that could suit any occasion!
Thanks for visiting the blog today. I hope you have a "Happy Day"!

Happy Fall, Y'all! It's Rebecca, hosting today's blog post. The crisp cool air of fall had come for a few days last week. It inspired me to create the following layout...

                                                              "Bushels of Fun"

I began by free hand cutting two borders from the light green paper from Secret Garden.

I then attached the blue dot pattern to my base page in a light brown cardstock.

I cut strips of varying widths and attached them to the base page. I used a border punch on one of the strips.

I free hand cut my tree from brown cardstock. Stamped an image that resembled bark on it and inked the edges. I used foam tape to attach it to the page.  

I also punched out apples and attached them to the tree along with the bushel basket. So quick and so much fun!

I hope you are inspired to scrap a fall layout today. Thanks for visiting the blog!

 I usually scrap double page layouts but every now and then, a picture just screams at me to be a single page layout. This picture of my grandson at the beach was one that did!

                                                              "Sunny Days"

The page comes together quickly. Ink the edges of your papers and I used ink to change the sun to orange. Then I placed it in the corner of the base page.

Next, I began to build my page with patterned paper from the bottom. Next, I placed the bracket piece. Then I placed a 1/2 inch piece of yellow paper flush to the edge of the bracket.

I matted my photo and placed it on the page. Adding the title next, as well as the flowers and greenery. I cut the phrase down to fit and inked the edges.

I hope you continue to have "sunny days" wherever you may be in the world! Thanks for visiting the blog today!
