Using Your Scraps for Valentine's


With so many of us having an enormous amount of scrap papers/left overs, etc. I have been on a mission to not only use more of my stash, but to utilize the countless amount of scraps I have spread over 3 art bins!  With that in mind, I found an idea via Pinterest that popped out at me.  Its an easy way for me to use my smaller scraps and cut them into various sizes and place them on a card...best part is this is a simple project even your children, grandchildren or school children would enjoy to put together!   It can use scraps for any occasion/theme, because we all know as paper crafters we have paper for every holiday, theme and occasion! 

I chose to do a Valentine's themed card which my 9 year old daughter help me to create!  We had fun making it to give a little something special to Grandma for Valentine's Day!  We used pieces of scraps from last years Valentine's papers.  We used some of my CMTH stamps and the Cricut Cartridge Love Struck 2010 for the hearts.  Of course what would any Valentine's card be without a little sparkle so my DD chose to put Stickles around the trim of the hearts.  To give the strips a little variation, we cut some with ribbon/flag end, some with decorative scissors. 

Simple yet easy and fun project for all ages that will get you to use your scraps! Thank you so much for looking!
