Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time

Today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time. The goal is to re-use, re-purpose and clean out your scraps. I chose to re-purpose a store bag from David's Tea...I love the colours and thought I'd go all white on that pretty background. This is the project that I SHOULD have used for made in minutes...took only 10 minutes...yeah!!! I have a drawer that I keep only white, black and kraft scraps in...I try to go there first...but it doesn't always happen. I pulled all the white paper from this drawer and went to town with Emma's it! Thanks for stopping HERE to check out the other DT projects...Lee-Ann :)

  • David's Tea store bag
  • Celebrate it white satin ribbon
  • Trendy Twine white twine

My Creative Time-Made in minutes

Today is made in minutes day at My Creative HERE to check out  the other DT projects. The idea is to showcase an easy project that can be made in minutes. My card took 20 minutes...that being ATG ran out, lost my pop dots, lost a die that I had to use again. The tape that I chose to use kept sticking to my nails...ripped the paper...etc. It was a disaster...apparently...I don't work well under pressure. The little blackboard sentiment I had pre-made. I stamped all the stamps in the "It's all about you stamp set" and embossed them a couple weeks ago. I have been using this stamp set to make a set of cards. I thought...what the heck, I'll use that on my that cheating? I will say, when I need to make a quick project, I use a sketch. This card Sketch is from Mojo Mondays #243. Love the end product, the paper is it!! Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)
