~No room for Scraps~
 In anticipation of my new Webster's goodies that are en-route, {SOOOOO excited BTW!} I thought I would clean up my current stash and pay tribute to some of my fave Webster's oldies...Not to mention that we recently recieved our new bed, dresser, and nightstands...So all the other furniture that once resided in our master, has found a temporary home in my scrap room... :(
Not so happy about that, since my room was already so limited on space...

I pondered to myself, what is a girl to do?

Hmmmm.
Lack of room + New DT goodies arriving shortly = Time for a clean up! 

So I rummaged through my {very} large DT box of goodies, found some yummy Webster's Papers from the Lullaby LaneHollywood Vogue, Life's Portrait and Ladies and Gents collections, and put them to good use! 

Not only have I been able to use up all those little scraps kicking around, but I can't forget to mention the added bonus of saving a whole pile of time just working with the pretty lil pieces that didn't quite make the cut last time...

Best thing is, you would never know that they were all scraps! At least I hope you wouldn't!

Once I had all my scraps gathered, all it took was one look at the pile and I knew my color palette instantly :) With the palette in tow, the cards were a total cinch to make! 

So....

 No goofing around with cutting + A perfect pallette + All the little pieces I could ever need at my fingertips = Total bliss.

Wish all my crafting was this easy!

  ~Ever Thankful for this Life~


For this card, I combined this paper from Webster's Ladies and Gent Collection, and a few other toppings kicking around in my scrap pile...Like the lovely bow, flowers and random letters...


I traced the inner edges of the alphas with a black pen to bring in the black accents on the lovely papers..


I used this Heidi Grace heart  fastener (in blue), which I glittered up til it was all nice and sparkly...And I added in a few die-cut kraft doilies here and there....


For the sentiment, I simply stamped onto a transparency with some black Staz-On ink (cus who likes smudges?) And then I cut carefully around the sentiment...A glue dot to stick it down and viola!


Oh and just in case you're wondering...I made this card for myself! I know, silly, right? Well, I just so happen to feel extermely blessed to have the life I do...To do what I love and to be with whom I love...Some days I need a reminder of my blessings, and this is as good as anything! :)

 ~It's Been Forever~


Not much new here in terms of color, but I wanted to use different elements to show how adding a few tidbits to your scraps can really dress them up! 
And no, I did not just leave those gorgeous bloomers sitting in my scrap box....
I cheated....And added them to the scrap pile so I could use them on these cards! lol


I added a couple of different colors of vintage ribbon, and a pale blue rose...


Along with those gorgeous Webter's Pages Bloomers...With a few dashes of white paint, of course.


To the side, you can see a little Webster's Pages Whimsie Birdie that I accented with some white paint and some black ink..I like how this makes the birdie stand out more...


And just a few other details like liquid pearls, a glittered chipboard heart and a lovely little Webster's Pages Butterfly Push Pin.

~Just For You~


Next up, another card with the same soft tones...and a whole pile of scraps!
Believe it or not, all of those scraps were the right size! All I had to do was arrange them and layer them with some sweet toppings...


I used up more of the lovely vintage peach trim and a sweet white doily...Teensy little dollops of Webster's Pages Bloomers, and a blue Webster's Pages Sparkler...


Then, I used up the lovely transparent frame design from this Hambly transparecy (except mine is in white)...And painted a couple of the chipboard brackets with white paint along with some liquid pearls on top...


The lovely cameo lady is from this Webster's Paper. And the gorgeous button is a vintage find given to me by my sweet mum-in-law :)

~One of a Kind~


Lastly, here's the final card I created with my scraps...


More of the same elements, like the flowers, vintage trim and Webster's Pages paper...


Another cameo lady and some more chipboard pieces painted in white and pink...


And that's all for today kids!
Hope this inspires you to think twice before you chuck those lovely scraps! If not, then maybe it will inspire you to send them my way (wink, wink)

Hi Ivana!
All these three cards are totally jawdroppingly gorgeous! I never would have guessed you just have used scraps for these cards. You allways do such great designs and i just couldn`t miss the chance of getting the mini album you designed for Scrap That. Now i`m just gathering some nerve to start up with it, lol. If mine turns out just a little bit as beautiful as yours i`ll be a very happy camper, lol. I also want to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment for me. I just couldn`t believe it when i saw that i got a visit from THE Ivana Camdzic herself. Thanks a lot, hun! Hugs...Mona
