Only Scraps Allowed and a Giveaway!

Monday 11 June 2012

Happy but very rainy Monday morning to everyone!
I have a dentist appointment this morning for a filling so my Monday won't be particularly happy I fear...

But I have a brand new weekly feature on my blog to begin today - Only Scraps Allowed.  I'm on a mission to use up all those scraps I have sitting in my scraps basket so every week I'm going to create a layout only using scraps and I would love you to join in.

The rules are that you cannot use any full sheets of patterned paper or card, other than one sheet for the background page. Feel free to add any embellishments you like and remember - make sure you use up those scraps!

I wanted to make a Jubilee themed layout this week so I raided my scraps basket for everything red, white and blue.  Here is what I found:

And here is the layout I made using them:

I used a sheet of cream card for my background sheet which I spritzed with red mist. I then started layering up my scraps and added my photos.

I made the little tea cup embellishment by stamping the image and colouring it with Copics and then added a few other bits and pieces.

I finished off by adding a title and the date...

So what are you going to make with your scraps this week? I'd love to see what you make so please link your layouts below and one lucky scrapper who enters before the link closes below will win a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (UK only) which is a fab prize - I use mine all the time!

 So get those scraps out and have some fun!


  1. Love the challenge, the title has a ring to it! Got a file full of scraps so will be joining in for sure

  2. Brilliant idea - have some paper ranges where I only have scraps left so will give this a go.

  3. I made a page and then forgot to upload it, oh well, will have to make another page for the week!
