Stretch your stash-3 Layouts from One Patterned Paper

Hello and Happy Spring!
I have been doing some Spring cleaning and reorganizing.  I like to make the most of my supplies....insert she devil grin..... so I can buy more!!!  Today I would like to share how I use and make the most out of Combo/Cut Apart Sheets.  I remember when I first saw these and thought what on earth do you do with this?  At the time I didn't  pocket scrap and their  too big to go on a card.  That was before.... Now that I know how to use them I make sure I get them often.

Here are just a few ways to use Combo/Cut apart sheets to stretch your stash! You can:
-Use them on Cards
-Make mini books
-Cut them up to make smaller embellishments(FAVE)
-Use on a layouts.

 I used the new Amy Tangerine Plus One Collection Combo Sheet here:

After I cut the sheets apart..... I got busy! Some of the 3 x 4 cards I used whole and some were cut to smaller bits.

Layout 1: Smoothie Everyday

Supplies: Amy Tangerine Combo sheet, Silhouette Days of the Week Cut File, Snap Letter Stickers, Freckled Fawn clouds, Dylusion Ink Mists

Layout 2: Having Fun NOT Getting Hair Combed.

My page buckled due to the mists but its just fine in the page protector:).  
Supplies: Dylusions ink, Studio Calico Wood Veneers and Stamp, Thickers, Recollections Alphabet Thickers, paperclips, Freckled Fawn Paper Clips

Layout 3: Squirrel Corn

Supplies Used: Amy Tangerine Combo Sheet, Silhouette Sunburst Mat Stencil Cut File, American Craft Thickers, Dylusions Ink Mist

I was able to get 3 layouts from one .69 sheet!  SCORE!!  Do you have Combo/Cut Apart Sheet in your stash and are unsure how to use it?  Grab that sheet and get busy!  We would love to see see what you post in the Gallery be sure to show us the before sheet and your finished project!  

Happy Scrappin!
