Using Leftovers and Scrap Papers

I am not sure how you are, but I typically do not throw away my scraps. If I can stamp or punch on the smallest area I will save it and use later. After making several projects from my Flamingo Scraps July kit I had a ton of scraps and pieces leftover from both the Merry Christmas and Winter Fun paper collections to make a 12" x 12" page. During the month of September you can get a GREAT deal on these papers, along with tons of other designer paper and embellishments in the Flamingo Scraps Warehouse Sale Combination Box.

For my page I used a 12" x 12" base designer paper, layered with an inked top layer measuring 11" x 11". I adhered strips of papers all inked with Prima edger measuring 1/2" to 1 1/2" wide using various lengths next to each other on an acute angle.

 From there I layered many of the embellishments found in the Merry Christmas collection pack on the page.

I also used a corner punch to draw your eyes out to the edge of the page.

 And two mats for pictures. 

Here is my finished page. I am really happy with how this finally turned out. At one point I had so many colors and patterns being used, I wasn't sure if I could avoid it being too busy.
