Selling stash and using up scraps

I decided it was time to have a bit of a clear out and sell some of my craft supplies I’m not really using (so i can buy new stash!)

And then it turned into a fun playtime of using up scraps off the desk and making little thank you collages for the little brown paper bags I had got to put sold items into.

I kind of got a little obsessed all afternoon making up these little bags … and of course forgot all about the tidying up!

Here are 12 of the many I made up (I didn’t take pics of all of them!

Such fun to play and just create little collages from scraps.

Now must get back to the tidying and sorting at some point!

Happy crafting!

Spring collaged index cards

Another swap project to share with you today and this time the challenge was to collage on index cards using the theme of Spring.

I decided to go through my stash of Making Cards magazine kits and pull out things that made me think spring. I organised them into 4 piles (one for each of the index cards)…

Then I started tearing, and inking edges and glueing!

So clearly all four are using the same papers but each has a different focal image from different collections.

Love how they came out and had so much fun tearing and inking and layering the patterns… in fact I carried on creating collages with the leftover for decorating some Happy mail packages I was sending…

I sense a new obsession creeping upon me… making happy mail collages for the backs of envelopes!

Happy crafting!
