The buzz of CHA is in the air. I've gotten several Lily Bee projects sent off to California. Kristen has really put together some amazing collections with new labels and embellishments. Destinations, Pinwheel, and Sweet Shoppe. But if you are like me, you still have lots of leftover pieces of scrap paper or cuttings.
I have to share this...from my earlier days of scrapping, money was extremely tight. I had scrap friends comment on how I didn't throw away a single piece...every bit got used. You can imagine what happened eventually...I never got to any of the new papers. It was the best feeling to finally learn to let some papers go after using as much of them as I could. The challenge we have on the Lily Bee blog today to use your scraps reminded me of my earlier days of scrapping...Please stop by the Lily Bee blog as there are four of us sharing how we used our leftover scraps...great inspiration!
Here's my layout. I grabbed a handful of scraps. The denim piece from Persnickety (Finicky) was big enough I could send through the Silhouette. My design came out asymmetrical, which made it quick to put together. I used the corner rounder punch on some pieces to add interest to the design.
I also used a tab punch, and a 1" circle punch to add pops of color. The butterfly, flower, and branch were leftover cuttings from another project. The polaroid stamped paper was another leftover. One of my favorite layouts. I love how these pieces came together.
