Double Duty

Hello Wednesday!  Today I have two pictures to share with you because it's "Double Duty" time.  I made a commitment to myself that if I bought new paper at the Archivers sale,  I would leave it in the bag and if I didn't use it 20 days from purchase,  I would return it because I don't need more "Cute, On Sale" paper in my Stash!   The 2 adorable papers are from the Dear Lizzy line and I thought they were really cute.   I picked them up because of the Challenge at FTS this week to use "banners".   I also knew what pictures I wanted to scrap with
the paper, picts from a Crop.  We had a good time and I even remembered my camera for a couple photos while there.   Isn't it funny that we go to scrap and I don't seem to take picts of us at these fun events?   Crazy!  I had a great time. I had a few scraps left from the 2 sheets of paper I bought, (Gasp,  I know - 2!)  so I decided to use the scraps for some cards.  I saw this card idea on the Taylored Expressions site and knew it would work perfectly for the few scraps I had left.  How fun is that?!   I know these colors are kind of "spring" but it was the moment, and they were scraps!
Supplies:   Paper Dear Lizzy,  Cricut Cartridge CTMH Art Philosophy


  1. Fabulous papers for these fun projects!! I love your sensational Oh, Scrap banner!! Tooooooo fun, Lela!

  2. Beautiful layouts on both your page and card! What a great idea to keep products in the bag with the receipt and if you don't use them by x# of days, take it back. I think I'm going to borrow that. The butterfly is "charming" on your card (couldn't resist). Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love how you used the paper on your layout and card. Leaving the new cute paper in the bag is a great idea. Does it help you resist the cute paper next time?

  4. Love the card & the scrapbook page....but now you have me thinking about scrapbooking....ENABLER! LOL!!
