Seals…Fish and a bit of Happiness

I have 2 days off work YAY!

I spent a couple of hours this afternoon up in my workshop, I made some more things out of paper scraps for the challenge over at Your Paper Pantry the challenge finishes soon and I want to get the video done for it this weekend.

First I made this Seal and Fishes Notepad, the paper scrap that I used for this was from the DCWV 8 x 8 posies stack which has been lurking around in my scrap bag for a loooong time πŸ™‚ Β  Β This notepad would be great for kids

Then I put a flower together and finished it off… I’d won the Tiffany’s Chocolates Little Lindys Kit at christmas from Lindys Stamp Gang I used the moonshaddow mist stain on these flower petals, love the colour!

I then made a matching card and gift tag, again using scraps and offcuts of patterned paper and cardstock

There’s a mix of goodness in here

I absolutely love this Sizzix Tag die… I used some of the Papermania Rose Garden Paper, May Arts Ribbon Scrap and some leftover tuille from when I made Debs mini

Scrap Paper, that carrot and a Scabby Cat

I signed up last year as a member of YPP, and my attendance record has been shocking lately, so I headed back over there last week.

They have loads of different groups on the go and I joined a couple πŸ™‚

The first one is The Stash Diet Challenge, which is great for me as it’s a video/photo response that’s required, this months challenge is all about creating things or finishing off projects using up all your offcuts and scraps of paper!

So here’s what I made tonight with all the scraps that I had leftover from making cards this weekend.

not this cat tho’ he may be the same colour as the one above, but this wee man is cute and fluffy πŸ˜‰ … meet Jerry

Then I had a couple of offcuts of 12 x 12 so made more of these rosette flowers, with heart centres

Love the shabby look of the second one

If you watch out at the end of this week I’ll have a video up on Youtube showing all the things I created from “that” scrap bag πŸ˜‰
