I meet a new doctor today... part of moving to a new state is getting a new doctor... so I got crafty and made them a Valentine! lol I didn't sign it and I hope it will get passed along to someone who needs it. My inspiration for this card came from Lori on her post here. She made this card!
I used a 12 x 12 page to design my card... the bottom half of the layout is for the card... as well as the hearts. The framed looking piece on the top right is for a future card but I like to use up all my mat when I lay things out... The top right is the decorative paper... I pulled it so only the part I wanted cut is cut instead of wasting paper or needing a larger piece of paper... I used cardstock for the card itself and Doodlebug Lovebirds collection for the rest! LOVE this paper... I did turn my pressure down from max to high but my blade depth remained on 6 and all but one edge of the frame cut out PERFECT!
So here is my page laid out on my mat.
And not to be left out... as I showed you the scraps of paper I started with my honey used this bunch of scrap wood left over from the fence we had installed and the door we took out of the kitchen/dining room....
To hold his toolboxes... on rollers too! Everything to make is was reclaimed... from this house or projects we have done that didn't turn out as planned... to make this terrific storage and it is very sturdy and won't tip over.
The toolbox was a craigslist find a while ago in Tennessee and it was free! My honey sanded and finished it to keep the original patina but all the drawers and lid work well... even his little toolbox that holds odd tools fits on the bottom! SCORE!!!
What are you making with reclaimed stuff? I am using a paper pack that I bought but all else was from my stash and as I have made over 10 cards already with it... that paper could now be considered free to use! What do you think?
Hope you have a fun day finding something to inspire you!
