NEW STAMPIN' Up CATALOG!!
You can't place an order until noon MT. Mine will be going in at 12:01 pm! LOL!

I have been invited by the lovely ladies at The Friday Mashup to join them as a Regular Designer! I am thrilled! So, from now on, every Friday, you will see a new challenge from me for The Friday Mashup!

And, to celebrate, I'm giving away BLOG CANDY! Scroll to the bottom to find out how to enter!

This week's challenge is one that actually required me to Google! And, I'm so glad I did! I'm now in love....

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using " Scraps of Pattern Paper or Ribbons ".
  2. Or Make a " Scrapling ".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Scrapling using Scraps or Pattern Paper or Ribbons. ".

 I didn't know what a Scrapling was! Here is how Heidi describes it:
A scrapling is a little card, notecard, or tag that you would make out of the scraps that are left from your card stock after making a square card. What do I mean? If you started with an A2 card base, 4-1/4 x 5-1/2", and then cut it down to make a 4-1/4" square card, there would be a 1-1/4 x 4-1/4" base left. That's the starting point for your scrapling. It could also be 1-1/2 x 4-1/4", if you had made a 4 x 4" square card previously. It is lots of fun to decorate this small space!

Whoa! Hold the paper cutter! This is so CUTE!!! And, do I have scraps... Uhm, yea! Remember my scraps HERE. Looks just like the inspiration photo! LOL! I decided to use some scraps I had left over from last weekend's Catalog Kick Off. They were actually the exact right size!

How nice would it be to have a bunch of these sitting around for all those little gifts that you have to give? Awesome, huh?

And.. So. Simple.


 I even made a little envelope for them. Cute!

Alright. These will now be my new addiction! I want to see more! Please hook up with us at The Friday Mashup and show us your ideas! Remember, you can make a Scrapling or just something with scraps.



Ok, now for the Blog Candy! I will be giving one of my In Color Stitched Satin Ribbon Shares! To enter, leave me a comment and give me a suggestion for a future Mash Up challenge! I have to come up with some and I'd love some ideas! I will announce the winner (random draw)  next Friday! Thanks for stopping by and for leaving me a comment!

Don't forget to come back in a little while for another post! It's Blog Hop time!

  5. Love these! They'd be so fun to have around. I don't really know what 'mash-up' is, but I have an idea that might work. Use something you started, but set aside for one reason or another, and never finished.

  6. Super cute cards! I love cards that are a little different than the A2 size. And, I have to say, I saw your scrap storage here a couple of weeks ago and converted my box/pile - LOVE IT! Thanks for the idea!

  7. Very cute. I do love the colors. I saw your scrapling and wondered what the measurements were on the envelopes. I love them, and who doesn't need a small card? Thank you Twila franklintc@centurytel.net

  8. Love scraplings! They get rid of all those little scraps easily and quickly! Love the envelope, too! For a future Mashup idea: How about everyone makes a card that mostly uses their favorite color? It would be interesting to know everyone's favorite. Thank you for sharing!

  11. Had no idea what a scrapling or mashup was . . . I like turning scraps into bookmarks.
