Hello, my name is Becca Whitham and I'm a paper addict. I save itsy, bitsy, teensy, weensy pieces because I think I'll use them all--someday! Well, with an "overseas" move looming in my future, it's time to start purging scraps.
For design team duties over at Amie Kiger's blog, I decided to cut hexagons using the Artbooking cartridge until I had used up several scraps. But then I went and trimmed out even more pieces with scissors using the Cricut cut hexagons as guides. Here's what I had when I was done:
Then I pieced them together to make this scrapbook page:
Here's the supply list (with links for your shopping convenience):
- Paper: Seaside, Snowhaven, Wanderful, Chalk It Up, Brushed
- Accessories: Thick Twine in Pixie, Flaxen, and Glacier
- Tools: Artbooking Cricut Cartridge
You'll notice that I wasn't trying to be fussy about lining up the hexagons symmetrically. The scraps which were only small bits required me to use a random approach.
Using multiple colors in little bits like this is great for two types of scrapbook pages: 1) where the photo itself doesn't have many colors (like this one), and 2) when there are lots of different colors in your pictures (like maybe a birthday party where your' guests weren't kind enough to wear color coordinated outfits).
I actually used up six scraps to the point of having to throw out what was left over. I'm so proud of myself!
Until next time,
