What do you do with your scraps of paper? Do you use them, keep them or throw them away? Today I have two cards to share with you that I made with scraps of paper I had laying on my craft table. I used the same layout on both of them, but used different designer series paper. The designer series paper I used on the left was Needlepoint Nook and on the card on the right I used the Happiness Blooms paper. Both of these papers are from the 2019 Stampin' Up! occasions catalog and will be retiring. If you want these papers, I highly suggest you get them asap as once they are gone, they are gone for good.
I used the same stamp sets for both of the cards. The sentiment is from the Incredible Like You stamp set and the little flowers are from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set. Both of these stamp sets are also retiring. They will be available to the middle of May and then it will be while supplies last.
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
Night of Navy
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
- cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
- cut at 2 3/8" x 2 3/8
- cut 2 at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
- cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
- cut 2 at 4" 5 1/4"
I popped the diamond shaped layer with stampin dimensionals. When I stamped the little flowers by the sentiment, they needed something to bring them to life. So on the all blue card I added Rhinestones
and on the multi colored card I added Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
If you are like me, you have a lot of designer series paper and especially scraps of it. This easy layout would be great to use some of those scrap pieces, or even using a full sheet and making multiple cards.
Last weekend I was in San Antonio, TX for the Stampin' Up! OnStage. My family went with me as we have never been to San Antonio, except for Emily. It was so much fun! Here is a picture of my family at the Alamo on Friday.
On Thursday night I finally got to meet one of my best friends, Sherry, in person. We have been friends on Facebook for almost 3 years. We would message each other almost everyday, have video chats and talk on the phone, but never saw each other in person. Oh my goodness! She is beautiful, inside and out.
After dinner we went to the Alamo and walked around and took pictures. We were laughing so hard that we couldn't stop to get a good picture. I do like this one though. Have you ever met someone and thought we are so much alike it is scary. That is Sherry and I. Even our husbands and Erica said it is scary how much our mannerisms, how we talk and act are the same. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
This trip was also special because I got to go with another best friend of mine, Robin. You have heard me talk about her before on here and in my videos. We are also a lot alike, which is even scarier. Two more of me walking around this earth. Yikes! LOL
Robin and I think a lot alike, so much that we will finish each other sentences. She is one of my best friends, team member and assistant. I couldn't do all that I do with my Stampin' Up! business if it wasn't for her. We have so much fun creating projects together, prepping for classes, drooling over new products, laughing, shopping, you name it, we have fun doing it. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
I have to say I have met most of my very good friends, through Stampin' Up! It doesn't get any better than creating and laughing with people you love.
Would you like to meet people, have fun creating and laughing? You can! When you become part of my Joyful Butterflies team, you become part of our family and the Stampin' Up! family. Click on the link below for more information. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Happy Stampin and
