Hey crafty friends! I’m glad to be joining you today for another reveal with the Southern Girls Challenge. For this go round we were asked to create nature themed products. At first I thought this was going to be really challenging for me. I don’t usually use these type of elements on my projects. Then I was working on something else, and the die cuts from the Pebbles Spring Fling collection jumped out at me. After that I had quick and easy nature themed cards all ready for the challenge.
My card stash has been getting low, and we have some birthdays and weddings coming up, so this idea was perfect for that! These cards were created with nothing but scraps of paper I had left, after I killed the kit they came in, and some die cuts I had set aside to donate. I created a total of five cards in just an hour. Once I got rolling on looking at the die cuts are card elements it all come together in a snap. You can do the same in a short time when the kiddos are napping, after work, etc.While I used scraps of 12×12 papers I had left…6×6 paper pads are perfect for this as well. If you love a collection, but don’t want to invest in the whole kit you can do both pages and cards with just the 6×6 pad and die cuts. By using some foam dimensional squares you can give the die cuts a more chipboard look by popping them up.
I hope this gives you some ideas on how to look at your project left overs differently. I’d also love to see what you create based on this theme. Be sure to link up over at Southern Girls and leave me a link too so I’m sure to see it.
