If you are like me, you find yourself with more scraps of cardstock and patterned paper than you have projects to use them. I have decided to start making either 3x3 or 4x4 cards to use on gifts instead of purchasing these small cards from the store. Like I mentioned a few months ago, you may want to start making tiny embellishments such as flower pots, roses, and paper punches with your scraps to minimize your pile. Because you have endless possibilities with your tiny creations, you can save the embellishments for future layouts and cards.

Just a Note

I recently purchased the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge bundle. Well, last night was the time moment for me to check out how to make those cute little flowers that are on this cartridge. Using the Gypsy, Expression, quilling tool and glossy accents made this process a cinch. Subsequently, I could not let these cute little flowers go to waste. I found a card sketch from and used my Color Scheme Bible book by Anna Starmer to find some card stock that would coordinate with my flowers. This book is used by interior designers to pick out color palettes but I use it to help pick out coordinating colors for my cards and layouts. I used Copic sketch markers to color my image and ribbon. I used SU pixie pink to stamp the image. Thanks for checking me out.
