Using up scraps.

Dit jaar heb ik me voorgenomen om iets meer gebruik te maken van mijn papier restjes. Ik bewaar het altijd allemaal wel, maar uiteindelijk doe ik er niets meer mee. Zonde, want een kaartje is eigenlijk zo gemaakt en de ontvanger van het kaartje (want ik was niet van plan om ze allemaal te bewaren) is er ook weer blij mee. Ik zat zo vandaag eens te kijken naar leuke blogs waar ze kaart sketches posten en bleef al meteen hangen bij CPS (card positioning system). Vond de schets zo leuk, kon hem niet weerstaan en ben er net gelijk mee aan de gang gegaan. Zo nog maar eens verder kijken, want de avond is nog lang. Kennen jullie nog leuke "kaarten" blogs?

This year I decided to use up my paper scraps more often because I always save them and in the end they never get used. Such a waste, because it's so easy to create a card with them and I could make someone's day with those (cause I am not planning to keep them all for myself). So I was looking for some great blogs where they post card sketches and I fell in love with this one at CPS (card positioning system). I liked it so much that I created a card with it right away. And since the evening is still so young, I might have to look for some more "cards" blog, any tips?

Hier is de schets/here's the sketch:



En hier is mijn uitwerking, and here's my card:

Mooi geworden en inderdaad, zo kom je van die scraps af en krijg je misschien weer inspiratie. En zeg nou zelf, zo'n kaart is toch hartstikke leuk om te maken, te versturen en te krijgen.......

Wonderful card Peggy. I should also just start using my scraps for cards, etc, because I am a hoarder of scraps myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful card! I also need to start using my scraps. I have been sorting through my old paper, used and not used, this past weekend. Oy. I need to be less wasteful. Thanks for the inspiration.
