Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Day~~ Use your Scraps~~

Hi everyone!

It is another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge day and even though it is not my week to design I did want to share my scraps and a simple card.
I have posted about this before but I know we all have TONS of scraps so this is a GREAT chance to play along with my fellow DT members.
So share your scraps and craft a card or two clear out all those scraps!

I went from this~~

To this~~card mats 5 1/4 x 4 to fit a A2 card

Here is one of my cards that I made using a scrap piece of paper turned card mat.
All I had to do was match the ribbon, and add the rosette which was also a scrap.

Oh how I love using up all my scraps!! Most of my card mats are all used from precut A2 mats. It makes it so much easier to pick and choose instead of shuffling though my massive amount of scrap.

So I hope you all join us over at Whimsical Wednesdays and show us your scraps!
Remember you have 2 weeks to link up :)


  1. Love your card! Using up some scraps is great. I love the idea of cutting them for an A2 card. I'm gonna have to do that with some of mine. Well, maybe a lot of mine!! I have a ton of scraps. :)

  2. What a terrific idea!!! I am going to have to try this. My scrap drawer is a nightmare! Your card is beautiful too. Love the colors! Melanie

  3. Wow this card is so pretty. Some of the paper pattern out there is so super pretty that you don't need much, can use them as a stand alone without a lot of other stuff. This pattern is perfect for just that! LOVE the rosette:)

  4. Love it! I may just need to scraplift this idea! TFS. I have also been doing a bit of a using up the scraps series on my blog. would love for you to check it out (you can find a link to all the posts in my labels)

  5. AWESOME job with your scraps!LOVE IT,Your card is beautiful!:)

  6. Beautiful card:)
