 Scrap your Scraps

Not being a great card maker, I use my scraps to create layouts. Typically I get 6-8 layouts from each kit. And, sometimes a mini album or OTP project. When I get down to the end of a kit my style changes from shabby chic to grungy or CNS. Today I'd like to share two more layouts created with the September kit of the month.

You can check out the tutorial here for the first layout. I do have a surprise tip for you at the end of the tutorial!

This is the second layout I created with the September scraps. I added ephemera from the embellishment add on, washi tape and bling from the main kit as well as bits of paper from the main kit. Some random stamping, inking, and rub ons added to the interest of the background paper.

I hope these layouts show you the versatility of the Swirlydoos kits. Despite all the flowers, frills and bling you can create masculine, CNS, or grungy layouts, too. The September kit allowed me to make seven 12x12 layouts, one mini album and one OTP project!
