some wrangled scrap mojo

Ever since watching the Scrap Wrangler, aka Sandy, I've been even more motivated to get my scraps WRANGLED!!! I think the solid colored cardstock scraps are pretty much contained. My OCD kinda took over so not only were they thinned down QUITE a bit, but all like textures were put together in the folder... Thomas just stood there shaking his head. Yes Thomas, Mom HAS lost her mind. ;)

Next up is all the patterned paper bits and pieces.... These are harder since they seem to be stuck in with the larger sheets, or in folders  tucked in EVERYWHERE. Aaaarrrrggghhhh! The pieces I've been working with this past week are all from a Bo Bunny calendar kit I did several years ago. The scraps have now been used or recycled. :)
This guy started with sketch #29 over at the Stars and Stamps blog. All the papers except the dark brown and white are from Bo Bunny. The orange for the layers came out of the stash. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Fiskars.

This guy started as sketch #99, again from Stars & Stamps blog. All papers except brown cardstock are Bo Bunny. I fussy cut the pumpkins and covered them with Crystal Lacquer to dress them up a bit.
2 of this one go into the OWH box. :) Again with the same Bo Bunny paper... The pumpkins are cut with Quickutz dies and edges chalked with Pebbles earth tone chalks. (yup. honest to goodness, old school, chalk that has been in the stash for AGES got used instead of chalk inks...). Sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts. Ribbon is most likely from May Arts, another older piece from the stash. Sketch used #22, also from Stars and Stamps blog.

These cards go into the longer term storage for OWH. Sandy doesn't need pumpkins until the 4th of July. So instead of filling up her guest bathtub, I'll hang onto them and drop them off later in the year.

I have the rest of these calendar scraps made into cards and will be posting them over the next week or so. :) Happy Wrangling!

  1. As a wrangler you need a top salary. Good job with these nice fall cards
