More Crate .... from the leftovers!!!

Are you the type of scrapper who carefully tidies up after each layout before starting on the next page or do you see what else you can make from the bits of paper and embellishments left on your craft table?

 This evening I want to share with you Jo's second layout which shows how easy it is to make a second layout just by using up whatever is left on your desk.


Jo used strips from the offcuts of the curtains and pattern papers that were used on the first page to create a matt for her photograph.


Next, a few carefully selected chipboard pieces ~ again from the same chipboard sheet as used on the previous layout create the title and some Crate stickers and chipboard accents are layered up to give dimension. Some of the stickers can be cut and just use half (another way to make your stash go further!). I love how Jo has clustered her embellishments to the top right of her page to balance the little "stinkin' cute" sticker on the photo.

If you feel inspired to use up whatever is laying on your desk next time you scrap, why not leave a comment here as I'd love to come and see!

The colours in this collection are so great for little girls among other things. I love that cluster too. I'm a big fan of using up leftovers and I can't bear to throw anything away!
