Leftovers...

I love using up scraps from previous projects, and thought I'd share a few cards today that are entirely made from scraps.
Thank You Butterflies Hello ButterfliesJust Saying Hello

Supplies: Stamps, Notecards - Hero Arts (script, flower, thank you, Hello); Punch - Martha Stewart; Nesties - Labels 1 and 8; Perfect Pearls; sewing machine; paper scraps.
I am officially addicted to my Martha Stewart butterfly punch... 
So happy the weekend is finally here.
Hooray for Saturdays!

I am addicted also. I own three of her butterfly punches. They are just the right size for the little something extra!

I love butterflies too and that martha stewart punch is so pretty.
..the muted polka dot paper is lovely ( what is it?)
and what do you use for distressing the edges of the paper?

One of my favorite things to do is to create 'left over' cards or cards made from scraps. I don't throw anything away which means I could be making cards forever and still have scraps left over!! I love the simplicity of your cards and I too love that butterfly punch. I might have to pull mine out today and play!!

Jill said...

Lucy- love your leftover cards! You can take anything and make it beautiful!! (PS I am addicted to my MS butterfly punch, too!)

I have a different shaped butterfly punch which I love too, but the image is not as cutesy as this one.

Love these gorgeous cards and can't believe they're made from scraps!! Nicely done. :)
