Use Those Scrap's Week!!

Happy Monday!! This week I've decided to challenge myself to use my scrap's on all my cards. I don't know about you all but I have TONS of scraps that just sit there that I don't use. :) It's not like they are small scraps either.. they are pretty good sized. Anyways, Here are some cards that I made to kick off "Use those scrap's WEEK!" Oh and not only did I use mainly scraps but I managed to use 5 different Pink by Design stamp sets too! :) 

First card.. everything is scraps except the pink card base. The butterflies were punched out by a Martha Stewart punch. "Best Wishes on your special day" is from "Hats Off" stamp set. 

Second Card.. is all scraps except the light blue card base layer and the white paper that the birds are stamped on. "Happily Ever After" is from "Here Comes The Bride" stamp set. 

Third Card.. everything is scraps except the grey card base and the white paper which the kitty is stamped on. The kitty is a The Greeting Farm stamp. "You're Perfect" is from "A Haunting We Will Go" stamp set. 

Fourth Card.. everything is scraps except the white paper which the tree is stamped on. The green card base is scraps and was left over from another project I had worked on. The tree is from and "All things grow with love" is stamped from "Life's a Garden". 

And last but not least my favorite card I've made out of scraps.. It is all scraps except the pink card base. The frog is stamped from The Greeting Farm and "from out pad, to yours" is from "Jump and Jive" stamp set. 

Thanks for checking out my first post for Scrap week. Make sure to check back this week for more scrap posts AND Thursday is my Pink by Design day so I will have a special project and technique showcased for you! :)
