Welcome to the January spotlight blog hop. If you have come from Nikki Geers Blog you are on the right track, unless you start here.
This month we are spotlighting scraps. Scraps can mean a bunch of things when it comes to scrapbooking but I am going to focus on using the little bits of scrap paper left over from a favorite kit.
For this layout I used a 1.5 inch strip of cardstock and on it placed 1.25 inch squares of different papers that were in my Sofia paper kit to form a focal point across the layout.
One other thing I did was use a scrap of paper that was left over from a class I did. One of the ladies stamped the inside saying of her card in the wrong orientation (horizontal instead of vertical) so instead of throwing out that paper I used the other side to make a mask for my spritzed leaves. To do this I cut out the Leaves from my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge on the messed up cardstock. I used the negative space for my mask and spritzed it with sweet leaf reinker mixed with rubbing alcohol. So, another great way to use up your scraps.
And another thing I do with any leftover little bits of paper I have is I either cut something out of it using the Art Philosophy Cartridge or I use my punches to punch out a shape. I have these left over images stored in a little sand pail at the moment. I may find a better place for them sometime but the sand pail works for now.
