The Teen Years

I try to tell my daughter that she is beautiful without all of the make-up that she wears. She spends at least two hours doing her hair, putting on make-up and getting the perfect outfit out of her closet and then dressing. All the while changing her mind 10 times before she finally comes out of her bedroom ready to leave, but stopping at every mirror in the house on her way out the door.

She drives me crazy doing this but the other day I caught her in a "photo" mood and snapped a few pictures of her putting on her make-up. Finally a chance to use my "Flirt" QuicKutz Gift Set.

Capture those teen years on film and do a special scrap page about the pains of being that age.

Cards Made From Scraps

I looked in my scrap bin and the cardstock and patterned papers are really adding up, so it is time to use some scraps to make a card or two. I never just make one card... while I am die cutting and assembling anyway it is just as easy to make 5 or 6 of the same card and since I am using scraps the cards may not all be the same colors but the style is the same.

Here is a card that I whipped up in a matter of minutes using just a few Spellbinder and QuicKutz dies. Inside is blank so that I can add the greeting later as I need to use the cards.

Very simple but pretty at the same time.

Use those scraps of cardstock up so that they don't go to wast and you will have cards on hand for any occasion.
