Scraps to Treasures Blog Hop -- Day 1

Welcome to DAY 1 of our two day Scraps to Treasures Blog Hop! 

We all have so many scraps laying around and we never seem to use them up.  So, we thought it would be a great idea to give you some inspiration to pull out your scraps and do a little creating with them. 

I had so many different ideas floating around in my head that I just didn't know quite where to start.  Well, I figured we could all use some more cards so I created three.

Here is each one a little closer up:

I used my scraps from the Dotty for You paper pack from Close To My Heart.  I had small scraps of ribbons that I used and I had extra die cuts from a different project I did. 

I hope these inspire you to pull out your scraps and create!

Now for some BLOG CANDY for two lucky hoppers:
