Scrappy Solution

How exciting is this?? I have a few standard things I do when my scraps get a little out of control. For years I've been creating this one specific design that I dreamed up in my very own head one day. Every now and then I cut everything up into strips and pull out some blank cards and adhesive. It's a great way to stock up on some backgrounds that are ready for any sort of embellishment.

Lo and Behold ... someone else out there is doing almost this exact same thing almost the exact same way.  It's very exciting to me to present you with a tutorial without any effort on my part. Here's the card I made their way (all angles) and below you can see some cards I made several years ago my way.

  1. Wow - your cards are great! I tried a different pattern, but now I'm going to give yours a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thanks Erika ... I checked out your blog and I love your herringbone cards too. I'm not accurate enough with a trimmer to make everything the same size : )

  3. Love your cards and the colors you picked! Thanks for sharing your tutorial card! :)
