Waste not, want not....

On Saturday, I was making a number of 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" cards... some I ended up with little square pieces of card that I'll keep for sentiment tags etc.... but a couple I cut off the end of a folded card so got some little scraplings....

Here are a couple of them I made with some scraplets of PP as well

Scraplings

The delicate sentiment is from Stampendous.  I borrowed Betty's stamp ( since ordered from SSS - but not sure it will arrive in time to use this year~)  It stamps beautifully... very clean and crisp.  I'll be attaching these to some of my presents this year.

Well my Tim's Tags are not going well.... started with a Hiss and a Roar.... but life has got in the way.... too much to do... hence not a lot of commenting being done over at Flickr.    Plus I've realised I am about 8 cards short of what I need.... talk about scrambling.  Got 3 all the same done tonight... and one funny one with Santas on it for one of the girls I work with... just waiting for the glitter to dry.  Will photo tomorrow to share... if I get time.  I intend to wrap the presents tomorrow night and then get the house organised for my parents arrival on Saturday.  After that, there won't be a lot of time for the computer.... so if you don't see me, don't worry..

Wishing you all a non-stressful rest of the week... Christmas is almost here!

Cheers

Very cute, it's amazing what you can do with scraps from one project to use on the next. Enjoy the rest of your week, especially Saturday xx

They look wonderful Dawn, I am with you, re the commenting. I have so much to do and so little time.
I am so looking forward to Christmas day though, enjoy you visit with your Parents.

It's such a busy time Dawn- no worries!
I love these scraplings! I'm really starting to enjoy making the smaller cards myself. They just go so quickly - no fuss usually :)
Take some time to enjoy the holiday!!

Really lovely way to use your scraplings, Dawn! The sentiment looks like it was made for this design.
Praying you'll breeze through the rest of your preparations and have a lovely holiday! Christmas blessings~

Great recycling, Dawn! These are really charming - love that sentiment! I can't believe you are trying to do Tim's tags.....too overwhelming. I just look with my jaw dropped....
