Today I tried to think of creative ways to lessen the pile of scraps on my desk.I made this card using most of what is left from my counterfeit Kits layouts and cards.
The challenge at Use your stuff is to use colouring. I had scraps of Kaisercraft's fine and sunny range plus the co-ordinating stamps .I've made a card using a stamped pennant (coloured in)then adhered with ribbon to the front of the card.

The wheels on this layout have made me sing that John Farnham song "Keep the pressure down" because it starts "put the wheels in motion".....

I went monotone with this layout for Bird is the word. The word we are asked to use is whisper. I often talk to Mum especially at bedtime,even though she died nearly 5 months ago. I still miss her dreadfully. We thought so alike. I've used Kaisercraft Love notes background paper plus gesso through a chevron mask.The Twiddlybits chipboard was painted with metallic opal paint.There is a pocket containing hidden journalling and a variety of alphas.I underlined WHISPER as it is the feature word.
Colour throwdown is a cardsite where they give you a palette of colours to make a card.This week's palette was this

I bought chalks specially for scrapbooking when I first started.I must admit I don't use them much. This layout has a strip of vellum down the left hand side.The hearts have been coloured on the back with chalks.I oversprayed the chalk with hairspray to stop it smudging.The photo is of my daughter at 8 months and her cousin aged 12.

Here's a card I've just made for no reason in particular.When I'm out selling Usborne Books,(my paying job), I take cards and people often buy them to go with a book they're buying for a gift.I thought this one would be great for a child's birthday or someone going on holidays.

Here's a picture or two of me looking like a whale in distress. LOL I've been keeping fit by swimming and on this particular day swam across a river while someone took photos. The chipboard is the packaging or negative from some circle chipboard I received.It seemed a shame to waste it so I thought "outside the circle" so to speak.I chopped off one corner to put the word moments in.I've made this for "Use your stuff"
