Hello! I'm so happy to be sharing a few of my projects here at the Making Memories blog today! I'm especially happy because I get to play with the fabulous Dilly Dally line. This is one of my favorite MM lines so far! So many fun papers, elements, and embellishments.
I consider myself a card maker first and foremost but have been dabbling a bit more into scrapbooking lately. So my first project to share is this 12x12 layout:
All I did was cut several 2 1/2" circles from the different patterned papers with my Slice and the Basics 1 Design Card. I think scraps like this make for a great background on any scrapbook page. Much more fun than using one whole sheet of paper. And we all have scraps, right?! All the little embellishments (except for the butterfly and the rose brad) came from the Embellishment Box. I used quite a few on this layout and still have a ton left to create other projects. And the butterfly! Dilly Dally has a ton of butterflies. I'm glad butterflies are still in. LOVE.
So now what do I do with pieces of patterned paper that have holes cut into them? Make cards, of course!
This card uses the negative space that was left after Slicing a butterfly shape from white card stock. After dry embossing the piece, I just backed it with a small piece of that adorable pink floral patterned paper using dimensional adhesive. The green glittered scallop accent was a small section cut from the border of the round die-cut paper in the line. So pretty in person! The sentiment was cut from a small piece of the same white cardstock as the card base. See? Small scraps can make awesome projects!
For this card, I used the "B" side of a small section of patterned paper to Slice this yellow circle. It makes an awesome background for the lemon-yellow daisy. Plus, I hand-cut a grassy hill and a leaf shape, using Every. Teeny. Tiny. Scrap to brighten someone's day.
Then here's another butterfly card. See, what I told you about butterflies? LOVE. Anyway, the Dilly Dally line comes with patterned cardstock and acetate butterflies. I just layered the two together with one of the sparkle flower brads. It adds great dimension. And of course you've gotta love the Shimmer Alphas. The card base is double sided so not only do you get the fun card front, you get another dose of happy when you open it.
Need more ideas for your scraps? I'd love to have you visit me at My Kitchen Table Studio as well, where I've posted a few more projects using more scraps from this same line. (Do you think I've said the word "scrap" enough in this post? LOL)
Thanks so much for visiting today. I just can't say it enough...a little scrap goes a long way!
