Gold, purple and black

Using punched out squares from projects that did not amount to anything. This time I used two squares, relatively similar, to achieve a different effect. The swallow is a free download. I already miss them dipping into the pool for water in the evenings although our weather is still beautiful and warm!

Thanks for visiting!

A grid with blue tones

Sorting out the squares to form another grid and  use up the pieces I still have left.

So enjoyable to do! Gives me another card to bless somebody with.

Making a puzzle

I like this blog because I don't have to write a lot of information on it, just share what I made and keep it simple.

This is just a simple grid card using up some scraps and then finding just the right butterfly to finish it off

A grid with circles

Just using up some of the punched out circles, which I love to do, according to theme and color. This one reflects a bit of Nature.

We are having the most gorgeous summer, more outdoors than in. The swallows dominate the sky at the moment, especially when the evening air cools. They are such elegants creations and I love watching them.

Have a special day!

Using up the scraps

Mixing and matching some scraps which have come out of a lot of different projects which didn't emerge into anything. I just save every scrap and once and a while I punch out scraps and mix and match them all together.

I also punch out smaller squares and circles which fit onto a larger square.

This is such an enjoyable hobby, just like making puzzles!

Enjoy your free day today!

Postal Stamp

As somebody asked me about the Postal Stamp stamp which I used on my last post, I will show you the plate of stamps it came on. I liked several of these on the plate and did not purchase it for the postal stamp... I discovered that later on to my surprise and joy. It is the third one down on the right, I have put a little green dot on it. Actually, the one next to it, but one, to the left, could be used for the same purpose, but that is more difficult to cut out, but I am going to try it.

The postal stamp is just under 1,5" long and just over an inch wide (3,5x2,5cm).

If you want to find a stamp like this I suggest you google it or check out 'TOGA Printemps Rubber stamps'. TOGA is a French company and I presume they do not sell overseas. I do cut around mine although having a postage stamp punch would be great.

Good luck in finding one! Before I go I have made another one

Using a Postal stamp stamp

I found this little 'Postal stamp' stamp quite  by accident on a plate of stamps already in my possession... On these cards I stamped out eight stamps on each card.

Just imagine the possibilities with all the little scraps and patterned paper snips you have!

It has given me so much joy, just to stamp on scraps with it and realize a different look to a card, every time.
