A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Take Two LIM WEEK 56 - Don't Scrap It!

This time I used a proper scrap and stamped my basket onto the scrap of designer paper.   That's when I noticed that I could cut around the paper's bloom design because they looked like they were growing right out of the basket!  I then had to do a bit of paper piecing (which I just learned how to do) at the basket opening to complete the look.  Actually, at first glance it looks like a basket of yarn sitting out in the grass, doesn't it?

Now that I've poked all the way through my scrap bin, I've found some marvelous papers that I've forgotten about and I will enjoy using them again.  If I can only remember tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that ...


For some other really great ideas, head over to Less Is More, check it out, and join the fun!

Enjoy!
