My favourite colour is purple. I like most colours, except that I'm not too fond of yellow. I'm a teacher, a student, a wife and a step-mom to four young adult-ish kids. My favourite room is my craft room. I like to play with photography, paper, scrapbooking, book and card making. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Scrap Collage cards

As my summer officially draws to a close, I have been trying to squeeze in a few crafty projects, because I love creating as a way to relax before the busyness of the fall.  I made these cards this week.

Step 1. I collected various scraps and layered them onto a 12 X 12 card stock. I used glue stick and also some gel medium with a brush. I tore some, cut some, used some papers with circles punched out, and also layered some different sized circles on top. Scraps from the place that has die cut machines are very fun to use. Glue everything down really well, and let dry overnight. Best to flatten between wax paper and some heavy books so it's flat.

Step 2. Trim 2 X 2 inch squares (or whatever size squares work for you). This is the fun, random part of this craft. You never know what you're going to get!

Step 3. Choose a few squares and cluster them onto a card. Add buttons, stickles, washi tape, or any other adornment that feels right. Glue them down on a card, and you may need to press them again for flatness.
