WOYWW...Ice creams!


Hello Girls...It's the Summer Holidays!!!!
I survived the Year 6 leavers Disco and secondary school open evening. Done the school uniform shop and I even bought the new shoes!
Now it's time to get back to the crafting! Now here's a question for you...Do you have your scraps in different stages? I have large off cuts from A4 sheets in a drawer but keep the little bits and bobs in a carrier bag. See photo above.

I have thought about throwing it out many times but then always manage to squeeze a few more die cuts out of it.
So I spent yesterday with my tag-a-long and some sizzlets dies cutting some cupcakes and ice creams, using up some scraps from my bag.

Here are some of the finished cards...

This is a special order for a friend.....

I have just spent half an hour uploading photos...my laptop had to be set back to factory settings as it wouldn't let me log on and I ended up loosing all my photos...luckily I still had about 1000 in my camera but now instead of them being in seperate files they are all in one....best not to get started...I also have to press " to get @ and vice versa?????
I need 6 weeks off!!! Hope you are all having fun! Come back soon.....xxxx

  2. Gorgeous cards Sally! I can feel for you with the problems on your PC, a couple of weeks ago mine wouldn't log on and it wouldn't even let me go back to factory settings so it had to go into a man to sort - luckily he saved everything except for my emails and contacts, now we have an external hard drive so if anything happens again, its all safe and I won't go into stress mode! Hugs, Claire x

  3. Those cards are fabulous and well done you on being so organised on the uniform front ... when mine were at that stage ... it was always a last minute rush ... usually a couple of days before the new term started!

  4. Lovely bright cards :-) Why throw them away when you're using them - I keep my smaller pieces in a box but very rarely use them. I tend occasionally to lift the lid halfway and peek or rummage through the top half :-/

  7. I keep my scraps in a variety of plastic wallets but what a great idea to have a concerted effort to use some of them up with the die cutting!

    Those cards are so beautiful!

  9. The " and @ is because it is stuck on American settings. You have to go into the languages doodad and change it to British ;) Oh yes have lost count of how many times I've had to format this dinosaur :)

    So sorry to hear about the loss of photos though :(

  27. Oh the factory settings have re-set your keyboard to american..can't remember where, but you can alter this setting! Your cards are fab. Have to confess that I don't keep scraps that small anymore, I'd me surfing a multicoloured tidal wave of papers! Gorgeous cards, such fun colours, and all the better for coming out of scrap. Brilliant. Enjoy your freedom!

  28. Fabulous cards, I love the texture on them.
    My scraps are in a file box, separated into colours. The scraps of background paper are all together in a drawer. Since colour coding my scraps I have used more of them!
