Friday 1 June 2012


Now what is a scrapling I hear you ask, well I asked the same thing this morning when I seen this weeks challenge over at The Friday Mashup, well here is their explanation.

A scrapling is a little card, notecard, or tag that you would make out of the scraps that are left from your card stock after making a square card. What do I mean? If you started with an A2 card base, 4-1/4 x 5-1/2", and then cut it down to make a 4-1/4" square card, there would be a 1-1/4 x 4-1/4" base left. That's the starting point for your scrapling. It could also be 1-1/2 x 4-1/4", if you had made a 4 x 4" square card previously. 

I make quite a lot of square cards so have loads of these scraplings lying around, noramlly I use them so stamping sentiments on, but today I have used them to join in this weeks challenge.

The mashup this week is to make a scrapling card from scraps (or snippets as I call them). So can't really list my supplies as it all came out of the snippet drawer.  However the butterflies are made using the sizzix Beautiful Wings embosslit.

I am also entering this card into Pixies Snippet Challenge

It's a long weekend coming up for us this weekend, its the Queen's Jubilee, so not back to work until Wednesday next week! Wooooo hoooo.  Hopefully will manage to get lots of wedding prep done and maybe hit the shops, fingers crossed it will be nice and quiet as most people will be home watching the Jubilee events on the tv.

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Thanks for visiting
