Lets go Shopping !

I ran out of those shopping lists from the $1 store with the magnets on the back. So…I made my own:

These are 1/2 of Junior legal pads. (staples can cut the for you for about $2.00)

I embellished with tiny piece of scrap.

the manets on the back are self adhesive business cards. I skipped the business card and just stuck them to the cardboard.

Got Scraps?? make some cards

I made this set of note cards for my Hostess this past weekend.  

The card box is cased from one that Lauren Meader made.  I did not purchase her template- I was able to figure the box out by looking at it.  Can’t say I was that lucky with any of her other templates.  She is super talented.

these are flat note cards.  each base is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  the whisper white layer is just a bit smaller at 4 x 5-1/4.  I took some scraps I had a TON of long skinny strips.  I trimmed the DSP to 5″ x 3/4″ and made these:  there are 2 of each.

I cased these from Michelle Wooderson.  You can see her’s HERE.

these are a great way to use of those strips of Designer paper that you always think you will use but never do.  Hmmmm I am thinking I may need to make this a category.  Everyone’s Got Scraps!!

NOTE: I lost my creativity a week or so ago and the only way I have been able to create anything at all is to case. (copy and selectively edit) I hope you don’t mind.  I have a few new items coming.  thank goodness my creativity is back and flowing again!
