Red Raspberry Soup Collection - using Scraps for Cards

After making the 'Life so Sweet' Album with this Paper Collection as a HobbySew Echuca Creative Team Project I had a few left over paper scraps.
I have used these to make cards for Mother's Day & other Occasions.

 I combined the papers above with the Jillibean Soup 12 x 12 Circle Placemat DieCut
& some diecut words & alphas from the collection.

Small scraps can be used to make diecut flowers & leaves, 
or use your puches to cut out shapes like circles or hexagons for a patchwork effect. 

Combine these sweet paper designs with the diecut flowers & Tim Holtz Sizzix Frames,

& then nothing from the Collection is wasted.

Most of  these products are readily available from HobbySew Echuca.

Hope this gives you some inspiration to use up some paper scraps.
Cheers,  Deb

Hi I have been making some Mother's Day Cards over the last few weeks.
I thought this one was a little quirky & wanted to share.

I have used the Sizzix Pop n Cuts Die with the Multi Tier Insert 
this allowed me to layer the Sentiment & the Crown.

I have used other tags & embellishments from the Pink Paislee London Market Collection.
I think the papers are from Authentique

Very suitable for someone's Mother's Day.
Not mine though.

I spent the morning watching Soccer in the Rain, but my son scored a Mother's Day goal.
They equalized but didn't win but I am very proud of him.
These are my cheery flowers and chocolates from the day.

Happy Mother's Day to those with us still & those in our Cherished Memories.

Always Love You Mum  XX
