Using up the Scraps Project # 7

Hello again,
I am having so much fun making projects with just my scraps. It is unbelievable what you can do when you put your mind to it. Did you ever think I would find seven different techniques for using up my scraps...I sure didn't and you know the best part I have a whole list more to make and share! I found this great video addressing this idea and I just had to share. When she said she has a 1 inch rule I was amazed! It's not just me lol. I even played that part again and made Brian watch it! After watching this video I got to thinking about 1 inch squares and bam....a new design was created. Here are some pictures of the cards I made. They are so simple and I love them! I am starting to think I like the simple clean look. I made the bright colourful one first and then when Brian gave it his approval I knew I need to make some more in more manly colours. This idea is going into my mass production file for the future! The sentiment is a stamp from the Ek Success Image Tree line.

Cardstock: Okay I'll admit these cards have used up my larger pieces of card stock so my bases will now be new cardstock but any pieces on them will be from my scrap pile.
