Projects Galore!

It's Heather again, and I'm back to show you the last few projects that I completed with the Button Box kit and add on. I was totally obsessed with using every last scrap of this kit because I loved the it so much. When I finished making the first few layouts, I used the leftover scraps and embellies to squeak out one more layout that used up tiny scraps. I also made seven cards. (I did add one piece of red cardstock and a few red gems when I created the cards.)

Before I created this page, I searched the web for sketches that used tiny bits of paper. I found an amazing one in the latest PageMaps release. This is the layout I came up with. I used some older photos of my son. I loved how well the flags in the kit worked as banners to hang from my twine. 

I also made two sets of cards. I used two different color palettes when I designed them. The first set closely matches the layouts that I made with the kit. They are all misted with the mist that Jessica included as the extra goodie this month. All three of these cards were inspired by Studio Calico sketches, I've said it before... They have amazing sketches on their blog

On this next set, I pulled a sheet of red cardstock from my stash because I really liked the small red dashes that ran through the striped paper. I thought that adding the red cardstock would really make those pop, and it worked!

I hope that I inspired you to use more of your scraps from your Scraptastic Club kits! I'll be back next Monday with layouts that I made from the FABULOUS February kits.
