Scraplings...

Finally! Some actual photos within the posts... geez. This is the little Scrapling make-n-take I had at the crop on Saturday. It's a wee little thing {sounds kinda Irish, huh?}, BUT the key is what you do with it! Scraplings are the little left-over chunka chunks that you get when you create a 4-1/4" square card from a typical A2 card (check the Hero Arts blog... they did some great ones using mailing labels!!).

Anyhoo, I've been needing to do more scrapping lately, so I decided to use the Scrapling as a page element for this 6x6 page. Why a 'cruise' page? Well, next year marks Poot's and my 10-year wedding anniversary, and we decided a long time ago that we would be going on a cruise to celebrate! I've only cruised once, for our honeymoon, and I loved it! So, this is just a little jump-start for the scrapbook I will... um, probably not... NO!... that I WILL complete for that event :)


Next up, Heather showed us how to use it as a bag tag... loved it! So, here's my version. It looks pretty different from the one above, just by changing the color palette. What's funny... both designer papers are from the same paper pack!!



Stamps: Flower Patch, Island Trees, Linear Sentiments, Tag Tidbits, Memo Fun, Playful Bet
Paper: Rustic Chic, Kraft cardstock, DCWV brown cardstocks, Amberley Grace cardstock
Ink: Burnt Umber, VersaMark
Other: misc. ribbon, paper piercer, sanding block, Mega & Giga Scallop Square Punches, Cloud Scissors, Pink & Red Scrapper's Floss, Copper eyelet


So, that's what I did with my Scraplings... what will you do with yours? CHALLENGE TIME!!! Use your Scrapling on something and link back in the comment section so we can all see!!


Well... what do you think?

I just LOVE scraplings! They would make a fun swap! I came up with a box that perfectly holds 4 nuggets and/or several scraplings. If you are interested in the details, let me know! Your ideas are wonderful - thanks for sharing.

I was tempted to purchase that stamp this month, but wasn't quite sure if I would get good use out of it, love what you did with it, would make great book marks for the teacher appreciation week...
