Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop! For this hop we will be featuring the letter E. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their E element will be featured in their post.If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber's blog ~ Scrappers Therapy. If you came from "Theodora's" blog you're on the right track!
E is for Extras ... in the world of papercreating we call them "scraps" BUT if I waited for S, you wouldn't see this until the Fall. If you prefer, you can call this Economic. I truly save EVERYTHING because "you never know". Everything does seem to multiply though because there's always some exciting new piece of paper or doo dad just begging to be tried. SO ... for this project I ONLY used leftover things.
Here are the final cards. Once I had the card bases I lined them all up and pulled out the extras from embellishment packs, stickers, ribbons AND Cricut cuts that went wrong the first time. (YES ... I save most every Cricut cut. Those are organized by general shape). I also limited myself to two stamp sets and two ink colors for the sentiments, which is another way to save time. Decision making takes FOREVER!!! You will notice that no two cards are alike ... that's just proof that there's really no way to do this wrong. I moved fast and didn't try to make each one a certain way. Of course it's a very busy look (not for everyone) but think of how many less EXTRAS you will have.
