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!

Get Sketchy challenge

My dear friend, Betty Keefe, directed my attention to a sketch challenge, which can be found here,  and this particular sort of sketch always motivates me to join in. So, I created something for the season with my Hero Arts stamps and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted which came free with some other stamps I ordered.
 


And here is the sketch:


Have a lovely weekend!

Playing with the Paper Players #215

The challenge which is a sketch with inchies can be found here. Love these sketches.



My card is made up of scraps and I always love putting them to good use. An inchie card in any shape of size helps you do just that!
Thanks to Sandy from the Paper Players.

Mixed size grid

Another design to add to the growing ways to make a grid card is to mix big with small squares, like this:
 

 The biggest square is in the middle. This has to be adhered after the four small squares have been fitted onto the card on each side otherwise it is difficult to get it in the middle.


 This pink one has been made in the same design as the blue one.

 This is where I keep all my punched out scraps so that they are ready to use and easy to find! 
In the top drawer I have butterflies, then the next three drawers have square inchies in three different sizes and the fifth drawer has banners and strips of patterned paper which I could use on any card or project that needs it, at any time. 

Thanks for your visit.

Home Decor

It was a treat to find some very cheap frames which I liked at the local Aldi Supermarket. I couldn't believe it. So I got some to alter and decorate our house with.



These punched out butterflies are the colors of our Living Room. I also have a frame in white, which has the same color butterflies. I have hung them next to each other on the wall.

Hope this gives you some ideas.
