My Scrapbooking Supplies Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my part of the My Scrapbooking Supplies Blog Hop!!! I am so excited about our new blog and the members of this design team. I hope you have been enjoying and playing along with the challenges.

I am a big fan of using what you have, so I thought I would show you a quick way to create 4 cards in under 20 minutes. I started with this pile of supplies, geared towards small children, since I just used up my last baby card and wanted to restock:



4 pre-scored cards, sized 4" by 5", one sheet of patterned paper, paper from my scrap pile, and miscellaneous embellishments from my stash.

I cut the full sheet into 5 pieces: four 4x5 pieces and one 2" strip leftover as scrap. Then, I took the blue scrap and cut two 3x4 pieces for the boy cards. For the girl cards, I just assembled the scraps randomly. Once I placed the embellishments and added some bling to the girl cards (because all girls need something sparkly!), I was done... in under 20 minutes, using some of my saved scraps, and without spending a dime of additional money at the store.



As part of the blog hop, I am giving away this RAK...



To be entered in the random drawing, leave a comment on this post, and I will randomly draw a winner by Friday, March 5th!

After you have visited all the blogs and posted a comment, please be sure to go back to My Scrapbooking Supplies and post that you are finished. Thanks for playing!

Your next stop is Creative Team Member Wirda's blog.
