Alcohol inks and white embossing

After making an alcohol ink background on glossy paper, with three alcohol ink colors, I stamped the big background Lace design stamp, from Here Arts with Versamark, before white embossing. I punched out twelve 1 1/4 squares and  assembled my grid. Made two cards.





Have a lovely weekend!

Using up the scraps!


This is my inspiration photo. I received this beautiful heart of flowers from my Valentine (DH), yesterday.


Here is my card:


Have a lovely Sunday.

Using up the scraps!

A couple of grid cards, using up precious rests of cards, wine labels and patterned paper as well as stamped projects which didn't turn out as I wanted.



When I look at these I remember all the creativity that took place, which I enjoyed and still have the pleasure to bless others with a hand made card in the mail!

Circle Grid

I found some small punched out circles in my 'squares' box and once assembled they made a card. I love that when things just come together. No wasted paper, ink or effort!



I wish you peace today!

Vintage grid

Nearly every year I have made a grid with a vintage photo on it and yesterday I made my third one.


just an assortment of projects that didn't materialize punched out into squares, so as not to waste paper and ink but also to make a different kind of card wherein each piece finds its value.



Here is a little trio of grid cards I made in this fashion, only the one in the middle is from my lovely friend Franziska which she sent to me.

Shades of pink, green and lavender

I just wanted to relax with some scraps this afternoon and where else to look than in my little drawers with squares.



This came together rather quickly and is quite satisfying.

Hope it will inspire you to give this a try - don't throw any scraps away, just punch out squares or circles and go decorate!
