DCM - Scraplings



This week's DCM dare has been set by Paula
Scraplings
Scraplings are little narrow cards made from scrap cardstock. You know how when you make a card from a a piece of A4 or Letter sized cardstock you're left with an off-cut? Well that's the basis of a Scrapling. When folded in half, the Scrapling's card front will measure roughly 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" , though this depends of course on the size of card you were making in the first place! So, dig out your scraps and make either a card or a gift tag!

Really enjoyed this one, making cards from scraps that would have eventually ended up in the bin, what could be better!  I only planned to make one but got a bit carried away, not only could I use my scraps but some of the stamps I'd bought and never used.  Somehow stamping seemed a lot easier for me using a smaller area.
Papers: MME Bloom and Grow
Stamps: Hero Arts and Rhonna Farrer

  12. Hi Dolly,

    thanks for stopping by, I didn't colour the image in, if you drop me an email I will let you into my secret :) shhhhh though don't tell anyone LOL!!
    Though I am busy with many workshops and demos I am not doing all of the workshops listed in my last post... I am part of the C.O.W team and it is the 6 paper crafted workshops that I am doing.

    Not getting much time to craft for myself either :(

    Love these scraplings what a great idea and once again I just love your take on them, you have a great flair for style and colour.
    Take care for now.

    Hugs
