November Technique Challenge: Cards from Scraps

I’m sure you have already made or ordered your holiday greetings. They might even be sealed in addressed envelopes, ready to go. But if you’re not that far ahead, I hope you’ll join me in our November technique challenge – creating cards from layout scraps! Every piece of paper in the Good Cheer kit is gorgeous, and I couldn’t bring myself to toss any unused corner. So, the challenge this month is to take the left over bits and pieces from your layouts and create a card. All month long we’ll share tips for making the most of your scraps, resulting in beautiful cards. First up, creative team member Diana shares one of my favorite techniques for working with scraps:


Diana says, “For me, the key to using scraps is punches! I loved using my triangle punch to mix the papers, then topping those triangles with sequins and stickers!”

I have a pile of scraps just waiting to punched! What about you? Ready to play along? Here’s how:

1. Create a card made with scraps. While the Scrapbook Circle Good Cheer kit is the perfect starting point for this challenge, any materials will do. Every card created specifically for this challenge is another entry to our random drawing.

2. Post your card(s) to your blog, our Facebook page, or an online gallery. Copy and paste a direct link to your post(s) into the comments on this post.

3. You have a whole MONTH to play. Enter by 9:00 pm Pacific time on Wednesday, December 3rd to be eligible to win this awesome Hampton Arts paper stack:
