Scraps Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scraps Blog Hop... If you came from the fabulous Madison at Funky Cards, you're in the right place. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along, start at the beginning at www.craftycardgallery.blogspot​.com.

The purpose of this hop is to help you use up some of your scraps. I'm sure you've got your fair share - I know I do! You'll see 30 talented crafters coming up with unique ways to use their scraps. Some may share tips on how they store their scraps as well! 
Be sure to visit all the blogs & leave comments, as there will be a grand prize, a $50 credit to the Designs on Cloud 9 store, http://www.designsoncloud9.com​/ sponsored by Michelle of Designs on Cloud 9. To win the grand prize, you must comment on and become a follower of all the blogs.

I have a ton of scraps.  As you can see....

Actually, I have another 2 of those boxes filled.  I keep my scraps in the Recollection boxes I got at Michaels.  My scraps range anywhere from tiny little pieces to a 12 X 12 cardstock with a little piece taken off.  These boxes work fabulously for me but I could probably store my scraps better.

I have two projects today......

The card layout is a sketch that is being used for this weeks' challenge at GAB Challenge Blog.  Stop on over to play along.
Recipe:
All paper are scraps
Ribbon is from my stash
Lindy Stamp Gang-Starburst Sprays in Azure Sea Asters, Cotton Candy Pink, Marigold Yellow Orange and Yellow Rose of Texas
VersaFine in Onyx Black
TPC Studio Greetings
Elegant Edges cricut cartridge
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch


The other project I have is a door hanger I made for my cousin for her craft room.  Though I gotta tell ya, I was a little worried half way through this one.  I couldn't find anymore aqua cardstock.  But low and behold I found a small piece hiding under other scraps.

Recipe:
All paper are scraps
Brads are from my stash
Flower punch is EK Success
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch
Elegant Edges & Home Decor cricut cartridges
We R Memories eyelets
Tulle

I'm also giving away blog candy.  One person selected via Random. org will receive a $10 gift card to their choice of Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win, simply leave a comment and a way for me to reach you.  To win another entry, become my friend on Facebook by clicking here.  Let me know you are coming from the hop so I know to give you another entry.  I will announce the winner on Wednesday, July 13th.

Thanks for hopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for day 2 of the Scraps Blog Hop.

Your next stop is Gina at California Scrappin'


Have a fabulous day!
