Thank You Scraps

You guys remember last week when I mentioned I had been close to finishing up a few MME packs? Well here's and idea for ya when you're down to those last few remaining strips.

You know the thin slithers of paper you've cut off.. when creating layers for your different size cards, that aren't 6x6? NEVER THROW THEM!! *chuckles* Get yourself a sheet of scrap cardstock, or even copier paper would work, cover it with adhesive and go to town laying down those thin strips in a pattern that's pleasing to the eye.

Remember to think about both colours and patterns, don't have two next to each other that are gonna clash.

Here's what I came up with using that idea.. and I still have loads left over. I'm thinking a set of cards *pulls at beard*

These are papers from My Minds Eye Collectable Memorable pack.
The flower stamps are from My Favourite Things Sweet Roses and matching dies.
The sentiment is from Avery Elle - Oh Happy Days. 
All of which can be picked up over at My Mum's Craft Shop.

I have wanted to try that cascading flower thing for ages now, and when I sat and thought about it, the shape of these flowers makes them perfect for it. Why have I taken so long to get creative with this stamp set?! Well, I'm definitely making up for it now! :)

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today! :) xo
