Precious

Have you been using your scraps/leftovers lately? Scraps are really fun to use when you just wanna create or intend to create a simple looking layout. For this layout below, I used the Pixie Dust Paperie's "Fall In Love" Oct kit scraps I am left with. Nothing go to waste!

I punched the edges using one of the EK Success punch I have on the pink cardstock and layer it with the grey cardstock. I have also layered all the tiny scraps together to create a clustered-looking frame around the photo.

For the alpha, I first inked it with a pink ink. Once dried, I sprayed red mist on it to create a faux marble looking alpha. Finally I added some glossy accent. In this photo you can't really see the effect but it looks really interesting in real life.

Another great way to use the leftover trims is to layer it together with the scraps.

The "leaves" are from one of the Melissa Frances papers. An awesome idea to enhance the bright flowers and pretty seam binding, aight?

Happy Crafting!
