I'm no Tim Gunn, but hey, I can sometimes make it work. "It" being scrapbooking. Case in point: the white buttons from this month's kit. They are so pretty with all those details. Love them. I used them tied with some blue string, and with the chipboard flowers on a layout. With the leftovers, I decided to make a card using the buttons as cherries. But the buttons are white, and cherries are (usually) red... So I painted them! With a fabric pen. I sprinkled them with some clear embossing powder to set the paint, carefully heated them up, and voilá, red buttons.
Another thing I did this month was to upcycle what would have been trash. I love the Lily Bee Blueberry Pie grid patterned paper, but I did use my entire sheet on one layout. So I looked around and saw the cardboard sheet that holds the rub-ons. A lightbulb went on, and I used it on my "Fun Is" layout as well as the cherry card. No waste!
So there you have it. I made it work. I bet you have some awesome ideas on how to make supplies work for you. Please share with us here, and in our Flickr group.
Hope you have a great weekend with lots of time to scrap!
