Blogpost for Scrap365 Magazine - Saving treasures from the bin

Hello lovely ladies!

Things are almost back to normal and work is gaining momentum. Sweden is still blanketted in the tropical heatwave that we've had for several weeks. I am desperately longing for some rain, you know the heavy sheets that leave fresh air to breathe in their wake!

Due to 'puter problems I am a day late in re-posting my from-trash-to-gold article over at Scrap365 Magazine.

As some of you might remember, I have spent maaaany days this summer decluttering my minuscule scrappy nook. In the process I found SO many things that could be used to create beautiful things with. So what did I do with the treasures?

HERE  is the link to the full article and the closies!

If you can guess which tag/tags was/were created with Christmas papers, leave a comment here before my blogpost comes up on Saturday, and I'll send a little surprise to one randomly drawn winner! 

And this is what I created with my bits and bobs, only mains here. The closies are up on the Scrap365 blog!


Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by for a visit!

I'll be back on Saturday! till then

  1. I'm so glad you have saved these supplies, because you have made some truly amazing cards with them. I ador each one of them!

  2. Fantastic work you've made on those fabulous tags. The embellishments are really wonderful.

  3. Ah I think it is the first and third tag that you made with the B side of Christmas paper. You have inspired me to go through my stash and see if I can re-purpose. I have so much paper from who knows when and when I look at it now I always think to myself... what the hell was I thinking when I bought this. Now that I have time to play I am going to re-look it all and I just love the idea of making little kits.

  4. Totally lovely! Left you a comment at S365 when I saw it. I have spent hours doing the same thing with older stock, now I am photographing the kits to try to sell them. If I don't succeed at least I will have a hunch of matching goodies together.

  5. Goodness each tag is a mini masterpiece in itself.. all so pretty!

  6. Gorgeous tags! Such a beautiful set of tags!

  7. Each of this is a little piece of magic and I love that they were made from re-purposed bits and pieces. Knowing was a clever gal you are, I would guess that all of them were originally Christmas papers. TFS :D

  8. Beautiful tags!! Loving the embellishments put together!!! So gorgeous !! Hugs x

  9. they are all beautiful!
    one and 3 don't look like at all from Christmas paper, you did a great job, they are absolutely lovely
