Stash Scraps

My pile of little scraps is building up so I challenged myself to only use papers from my stash of Scraps, there is no order to my extra scraps of paper, I see how others organize it in colors or manufactures but mine is just all thrown into a plastic container and I need to challenge myself to this a little bit more, so that it isn't overflowing  :)

There is a little bit of Basic Grey Paper, K&co. and Tim Holtz's Shabby paper pad.

Lace is from my stash and I used my sew easy to do the stitching between the paper strip and the lace, it takes practice but I am glad that I was able to line it up pretty good.

Spellbinder Carnation Creation die, I used 3 different sizes and two of each size.
Basic Grey brad for the center.
Spellbinder Bitty Blossom die for the leaves, did a little inking on them also.

Spellbinder tag die with Studio G sentiment stamp.

Brads on tag are from Queen &co.

Today my daughter finds out if her gum graft took, she is a bit nervous to hear what he has to say because her whole mouth feels pretty good except for her two front teeth and that has her worried it didn't take in the front.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by,

Throwing it all together is a great way to mix it up and see more possibilities. You came up with a great combo here. This is so pretty!
