Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #35: Scraps

I am here today with a card for the latest Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge.  This challenge was to make a card using only scraps.  I really need to do this more often!  I have so many extra die shapes that I've cut and it can make putting a card together so much easier!

Every single one of these shapes (even the punched border AND the impressed aqua piece) were scraps left over from other projects!  The notebook paper was already stamped!  How fun to start combining the different elements to end up with this card!

Isn't this an unexpected color combo too?  I'm not sure that I've ever used orange with aqua before!

We would love to have you participate in our challenge!  Head on over to the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog and link up your creation using scraps!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Twinery Twine
Yellow Bazzill, Kraft, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz, White Cardstocks
DCWV Glitter Paper
PTI Butterfly, Notebook Page, Doily & Banner Die
Fiskars Border Punch
Sunshine & Canvas Impression Plates


  1. Love it! All the layers are just delicious, as is the cheery color combo!

  2. This is so bright and cheery Jen! I love the colors!

  3. Can't believe this is all from scraps! I LOVE the color combo. The orange is really just perfect with aqua mist. The whole card works just like you started from scratch.

  4. Love it all!
    Would have never thought of the orange and aqua...
    but it works!
    And isn't it great knowing that the scrap pile is just a little thinner?
    Now if I could just mine under control...
    life would be good!

  5. Great card! ;-D This makes me want to shuffle through all my own scraps and see what I can find.

  6. You sure make scraps look great!!! very bright & fun! :)

  7. Love it, Jen! The colors, the layers, the textures, the detail. A whole lot of fun in one card. Wish I can be as creative with my scraps.

  8. Hey, Jen! This is so bold and bright and happy! I love it to pieces! And seriously! We ALL need to use up those scraps. I'll have to go check out that challenge. That's a new one for me.

    On another note, I'm soooo excited to meet you on Friday, too. Woohoo! Yea for blog friends!

  9. What a fun colorful card, Jen! I can't believe it was made entirely out of scraps! What a great idea!

  10. You have beautiful scraps! How fabulous that they all fit together into this wonderful card! I love the colors, of course, as always!

  11. Um, maybe I need to work this challenge into my schedule before you guys come tomorrow! My scrap basket is one thing that I'm sure will fall to the bottom of my list before tomorrow! LOL Anyway, I know I've said it before but Jen, how do you DO it? All that color? I have a hard time with color challenges sometimes but you use color so easily!! Beautiful card!

  12. I love the colors you chose. You always do such inspiring projects! :)

  13. With all the scraps around here I could easily join the challenge a couple of times ;-) Gorgeous card, Jen! Love the colors and texture.

  14. Fabulous use of scraps! The colour combo actually works really well. :)
    My scrap pile is disgustingly hig, I think I may be entering this challenge! :)

  15. Jen, I love it! The color combination is fantastic and oh do I love the glitter!!

  16. this is greatness!! you know, the spiral notebook pg die has to be one of my all time fave dies, and I've never used it with Kraft (lightbulb!!). pure genius!! i just love this card!

  17. I thought I'd left a comment on this lovely already, but I'm not seeing it here, so I must be imagining things. First of all, thanks so much for playing along with my challenge! I love the bright, bright makes for a very happy card! And the glitter paper...YUM!
