Stash-Busting Backgrounds

We decided this year would be all about stash-busting: using up all those lovely bits & pieces we keep because “They will come in”!  Won’t they?

With that in mind we designed our workshops around using little pieces of paper. Let’s face it – some of the papers are so gorgeous and we just can’t bring ourselves to throw even the smallest scraps out, can we?

I had been using Couture Creations C’est La Vie papers on another project and had lots of pieces left, so I set to and cut them into strips.

A sheet of double sided adhesive, some pieces of card and other scraps – lace, a few pearls and I was really pleased with the result.

I still had some bits left though, so I went on to create this one as well:


Using a border punch ( remember them – before we all abandoned them in favour of dies!), some bits of ribbon and an odd flower – yet another pleasing result.
