One of my most favourite crafting techniques / styles / things to do is to use up my scraps. I have a drawer, butter tub AND plastic display book filled with strips, die cut scraps, odd shaped bits of paper that I can't bear to part with. And if its taking up space, I NEED to find a use for it or else I'll feel compelled to chuck it in the bin, won't I?
So, my first card has a scalloped circle, cut from scrap paper from something else I printed. It has been embossed with a Crafts Too folder with a couple of flowers from stash and a sequin and bead centre. That has, in turn been layered onto some black card, scrap Bo Bunny Alora strip and ribbon, with a circle die cut scrap frame. There is another Bo Bunny scrap frame around that. (I must admit to being rather mean, or waste conscious when matting my papers: there's normally a die cut shape hidden behind it!!) Then, there is a red heart, scrim heart and butterfly tucked behind the main circle, with beads sewn for the butterfly body.

And then, I made this scrappy card too, using a scrap die cut frame with some doodling and Stickles, a vine and flowers cut from scraps of red and black paper and the Bo Bunny Alora paper strikes again!!
