Learnng to Love my Scraps!

It's my turn to do the Funky Hand Weekend Inspiration slot this week, and here's what I'm sharing over there


I know I keep banging on about how fab it is to be able to crop and resize Funky Hand papers, but it's true - it may seem daunting at first but it's worth getting to grips with your graphics package and your printer settings because you will soon be customising your Funky stash and really making the most of it all.
As I've been using Bazzill card to do a lot of my printing on recently I'm thinking much more carefully about what I print, and trying to get the best from each sheet.  I'm much less likely to throw the unused bits away once the pile gets a bit high, and much more likely to see what I can make using those offcuts.
So today I'm sharing one of my "Scrappy Cards" - it's actually a lot of fun working out how to make the smallest pieces of paper turn into something pretty - and often I find I like these creations the best.  I really like this card and I hope you do too.

Pop over to the Funky BLOG for more info about how I made this card using scraps of the Funky Hand Winter Wedding collection left over after making the heart shaped box I showed HERE, plus a few bits from my stash.  

Thanks for visiting, please leave a message....and can I be greedy and ask you to leave one over on the Funky Blog too ;)

Have a great weekend
