MCT Thrifty Thursday ~ HB2U!


Hi crafty friends, today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time!  
That means we on the design team are suppose to use scraps, and/or reuse something to create a new project.  The only thing that's suppose to be new is the base (card or layout).
I always keep extra die cuts in this decorated mason jar that I got from a friend (Katie).  I popped the top out of the ring so it always open and just toss any die cuts that I don't end up using for a project.  Sometimes it's something I stamped that I may not be happy with the outcome...I still keep it.  Why?  Cause you never know, you just might use it.  :)
Well, this is what I pulled out of the jar...plus some scraps and my card base.

The lined paper was one of those items that I had stamped a few weeks ago but it didn't stamp evenly, so I threw it in the jar.  However for this project it didn't matter if it wasn't perfect, it added to the look.  :)

Very cool and shabby chic card love it. Great ways you used Miss Emma's goodies. I loved that you shared your goodies jars and got a peak at your craft room neat way to present to what you had used to create your card. Love your card and everything you used to create it. How very clever, creative and crafty of you!

Well, aren't you clever using the jar that way? Now I might need to make one for me, since I have an ugly white bowl full of die cuts on my desk! Your card is just precious! Love the colors and that SWEET flower!!!
