Monday Make Itz


Let's repurpose card and scrapbooking kits.
I love kits--everything you need is in one place along
with being a quick grab and go to take and make.
I watch the clearance 'rack' on the StampinUP website for deals.
I also keep a stash of kit 'parts' that I didn't use in other kits.
Winter holiday kits can be repurposed for late winter holidays while
spring kits can be used throughout the warmer months.

I purchased the Watercolor Winter cards kits to use for Valentine and birthday cards.
I also purchased many of  the Happy Hello kit for various cards, especially birthday.
I can make a pile of cards in one sitting.
I took all of the components out of the kit to separate the parts that would not work with
new card ideas such as Merry Christmas, etc.
I will save these for next year's Christmas projects.
I mix and matched the components that were left to craft the new cards.
The possibilities are endless!

Vellum embellishments. Use the negative space as a stencil. Daub or spray ink onto paper.

Add hearts to winter cards to make valentines. Put Valentine sentiment inside.

Project Life Scrapbook cards used on card bases, add Happy birthday diecuts. Quick and Easy!

  1. neat idea. i should pay closer attention to the clearance sections of websites!

  2. absolutely, shop the clearance aisle first!

  3. Great ideas! I looked for my ribbon in the clearance. Not there. Oh well.... It's not really like I need more ribbon..... ;)

    1. there can never be too much ribbon for your creativity!

  4. Check the clearance 'aisle' often, new product is always being added.
