Recycle Mom Day1

Hello there, if you are here looking for the Pals Blog Hop: Earth Day is Everyday, don’t worry you’ll find it on yesterday’s post… LoL.  These are more cards using recycled left over paper from other cards I’ve made.  I do not have the innate ability to color match, but after viewing all thepretty left over paper, I didn’t think it mattered.  The colors remind me of Spring and it has sprung… LoL.

I made my own mom a special Mother’s Day card that I will preview some time this week…. and I can’t wait to show it to you because like these cards…. I also used my stash of paper.  Do you keep your scarps of paper in a box all thrown together or neatly separated and labeled?  how do you think I keep mine?  Hmmm… maybe I’ll show you pictures next time too… LoL

Happy Mother's Day2

If you’re wondering about the crinkled leaves… I used a retired Stampin’ Up! product, a Crimper.  I folded the leaves in half length wise and pulled it through.  They give the leaves a beautiful embossed real leaf look… don’t you agree?

  1. Like Lynn, I keep my scraps in baggies separated by colors, but I use large baggies because i often have 1/2-inch by 12-inch scraps (from scrapbook pages) as well as little 1×2″ pieces and every size in between. I keep all the baggies in a see-through zippered tote that has fairly stiff sides so it can stand ny itself on a shelf or go with me to a workshop. I wish I could tell you where to get one, but I found it at a scrapper’s consignment sale.

  2. Very adorable cards Maggie!

  3. Very cheerful Spring cards. I love the texture on the flower petals. Very neat!
    I keep my scraps in little plastic baggies by color. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love the cards! I keep my scraps in a plastic bag…not very organized at all! My regular supplies are actually organized quite nicely…wonder what that means? Enjoy the day! 🙂
