Using What You've Got!!

Ann over a Ann's Creative Nook asked for neglected embellishments this week. We should all think about this one. We all run out and buy the latest and greatest, but what about what we have sitting in our stashes? I am as guilty as anybody. So both of these cards will work for Ann's challenge.

Both of these cards were made from an old kit that I used to subscribe to called Scrap Jammies. Everything in the kit was precut, premeasured, etc. for a two page layout - all you had to do was insert the photos - great kit for a beginner scrapbooker. I didn't end up using them as they were meant to be used and I have started cutting them up and making my own stuff - after all - it's already matched, etc - half the work is already done for me - which is a good thing! If you look at most of my cards, these are not supplies I would have normally picked out myself.

Onto the cards...

This first card works for the following:
  • Ann's Creative Nook - neglected embellishments (actually neglected everything - I haven't subscribed to these kits in over 3 years!)
  • The sketch is from Mojo Monday.
  • 365 Cards asked for purple and 5 circles - I have six obvious ones and the two upper panels are made of patterned circle paper. The purple I used is actually lavender. I counted it! :)
  • Fun-Frilled asked for four eyelets (I haven't used eyelets in a while either) Luckily the Mojo sketch had circles right where I placed the eyelets.

This little card is about 4x4 and works for:
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend.
