Scraps Galore

I had an enjoyable Sunday afternoon with a bit of alfresco crafting in my garden. In the shade of an umbrella I made these.................. continuing with the Create 10 workshop and even more scraps used up. I used my nestabilities again and some circle punches to cut out and layer up paper and felt into these pretty embellishments. Unfortunately I didn't have time to create the lovely heart wreath that was the project of the day but I hope to soon.
However, I did use one of the embellishments I made on this layout when I spotted that it was created using some of the same papers I'd picked for the layout.This project was all about using up fibres that seemed to be very popular at one time - have you got any lurking in your craft supplies? The photo is of my Nan's parents on their wedding day in 1920. Again another photo that I'd printed out ages ago, it was obviously meant to be.
Finally I used the extra project idea to inspire this card with the addition of another of the layered decorations.
There is something very satisfying about using up scraps...............especially when they are too pretty to throw away ;-)

My goodness, Amanda, you have been very busy! What a great way to use up scraps through making the pretty range of embellishments - they look so good, you could display them on the wall!
