Scraplings

Recently a friend, Diann who is on two yahoo groups that I belong to decided to host a Scrapling swap. I had never heard of scraplings, but they are so easy to do as I found out this morning. You use up small scraps of papers and doodads, whatever, that you have tucked away in a drawer, a box, or wherever somewhere in your craft room. Basically you cut a piece of leftover cardstock 8.5 x 1.5 inches and fold it in half, so the cards end up being 4 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches. These make skinny little cards. You then cut slightly smaller pieces of paper to layer on top of your base card.  The little cards make a great little tuck in gift card, book marks, tiny greeting cards, because they open like a regular card. Do a google search and you will find many sites to get ideas from.
Here are my first attempts that I did this morning using some paper pieces that I had in a box on my art table.scrapling cards
I love humorous cards and the stamped/embossed part of the layered card has been in a box for several years and I just never did anything with it.

Well, that's it for art for right now. The sun is shining and it is 42 degree's outside...a heat wave for us and so I am going out to enjoy the sun while it last. Strange weather, ground is still covered with about 20 inches of snow, but during the night we had rain, thunder and lightening. Thats the thing with NE weather, you never know what the weather will be from one minute to the next.
Have a wonderful day.

I'm a stamper/quilter . Like the idea of Scraplings. I have a box of small paper & another box of "treasures". This might be my next project.
