Oh, Scrap!

Hello, fellow crafters.  I hope you are enjoying this wonderful holiday season! 

Today, I’m featuring a layout made entirely from scraps.  Yes, that’s right.  All of these elements are from the 12x12 baggie that I keep for my scraps.  Now, I don’t save everything.  Just something that either I like the pattern/color or am convinced I can actually use somewhere down the line.  Lots of leftovers from cardstock sticker sheets in that bag.

I had these last few photos from a food tour we did in Miami.  These are from a fabulous Cuban ice cream shop.  I wanted to do something different with them.  I looked in my scraps bag and found a little baggie of plastic stars from a kit club.  I remember at the time I received them thinking “what in the world would I do with these.”  Well, here it is!

I simply sprinkled the stars down the length of the page and, using my tweezers, glued them in place where they fell.  It probably took 5 minutes.  I love, love, love how it turned out!  Simple and festive – just what I was going for.  This would be a great technique for a holiday/celebration layout.  Give it a try.

Happy Holidays!
