A while back when I was cleaning out my closet I came across a bunch of packets of card “guts” from a workshop that I did many moons ago (I think it was at least 3 years ago) when I was a consultant for CTMH. It was a 6 card workshop for a bunch of “beginner” (aka virgin crafters) card makers and I had figured that the easiest way to do the card night was to pre cut all the pieces and layer them in a packet to use the night of the card class. A few people did not show up and I had a bunch of leftover packets. What to do with odds and ends pieces? Rather than empty them out and put them into my scraps piles I decided it would be super fun to ask a few friends to help me do something with them.
Welcome to my first Scrap My Scraps Challenge!
Each player in this challenge was given 1 complete packet of card guts, complete with a little baggie of the bits of embellishments we used for the cards.
1. Create one card from each layer stack thingy.
2. Use ALL of the pieces that go to each card.
3. Use any stamps to complete cards.
4. You may add one piece of extra cardstock to the card and any extra embellishments.
(More like guidelines, anyway….)
The players in this round (yes, I think I will do this again…) are:
These poor girls started with some really crappy pieces of scraps…. the cards that I made for my class were very, very basic and simple. The girls did AWESOME! You can see their styles and personalities in each of their cards.
The goal of this challenge was to see what each person did with their scraps. Everyone started with the same basic pieces – no sketch. I just wanted people to have fun and create just for the sake of creating. I think the goal was accomplished! Thank you to each of you for playing!
So, without further adieu/adoo/whatever/blah blah blah…
Here’s set #1:
We started with:
My original card:
Check out her paper piecing and cool ruffley ribbon flower! I love the layering of the individual pieces of cs, too!
LOOOVE the random stamping and cool side tie knots and button nosed flowers!
LOVE the white polka dots, so cool, stamped over the random stamped card pieces and a cheerful hello to greet the recipient!
Isn’t it fun to see all the different takes??
Photoshop is giving me heck today with editing photos… I’ve got half of card #2 edited, but I’ve got to hit the sack and head up to work early tomorrow morning and then go find a brown skirt somewhere… hopefully Dress Barn will save my hiney… lol!
Stay tuned! More cards posted tomorrow (Monday) night!
