Happy 2021!! May it be a better year than 2020! A new month has arrived and that means a new challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog. This month's challenge is Anything Goes.
And here are the cards I created:
I have lots (and lots and lots) of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper that I never use. Anyone else want to join the club and admit this as well?? Confession is good for the soul, you know. For several years, I have been a fan of "one-sheet wonder" cards where you take an entire sheet of paper ( can be any size, though usually 6 x 6 or 12 x 12), cut it using a template and create cards using every tiny bit of that sheet of paper. So, I finally decided to pull out a sheet of Christmas paper and have a go at it using this template I found on Pinterest. I cut enough pieces for 12 cards, but only have 10 finished at this moment.
Card #1 uses some punched snowflakes that my mom got in a big box of scrapbooking stuff at a yard sale several years ago. There were so many, it will take a long time to use them up! I also added some pink dotted ribbon and some blue rhinestones.
Card #2 uses a snowflake embossing folder and no added embellishments.
Card #5 uses one of the felt snowflakes and a bunch of light pink pearls to accent the die cute "wreath".
Card #6 Uses one of the felt snowflakes and some pink rhinestones.
Card #7 uses the dotted ribbon some blue rhinestones and a die cut snowflake. (This might be one of my favorite cards from the set!)
You can see the sparkle in the photo below:

Card #10 doesn't use any embellishments other than the sentiment strips.
