A Baker's Dozen created with Cafe Parisian Scraps!

a Country Crafts Creations design team project

What to do, what to do. Is that your mantra after creating a project and looking at all those usable scraps of paper all over your crafty spaces?  Well do I have a solution for you.  After creating my Cafe Parisian Mini Album I kept looking at all these bits and bobs of paper and decided it was time to make a few cards with the scraps.  Well a few turned into a Baker's Dozen, thirteen to be exact!  But that's not all, after the cards were done I still had a little of this and a little of that so I decided to take plain white envelopes and decorate the flaps and fronts.  Let's have a look at what all those left overs turned into.

You know once you put all the leftovers away seldom do you take them all out again and start fresh, It's much easier, when everythings all over your crafty space to cut, tear, paste and create right then and there. That's what I decided after I finished my mini.  Well actually I thought why not make a few cards and then it just grew and grew to the point I wanted to see how much I could actually squeeze out of what was left.  When you check out my video you'll see what was left over, not much a couple of sheets of 6x6" paper and a few chipboard pieces.\

Because there are thirteen cards I'm not going to share multiple photos of all of them, just this first one to give you an idea of what I've done.

The following cards will show only the fronts and envelopes but you can see more view and the insides of all of the cards on the video below.


 I hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse at my pieced together cards.  As you watch the video you'll see lots more views of each card and envelopes.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Comments are most welcome.  You'll find links to Country Craft Creations and the supplies I've used directly below the video.

These are so unique and unusual! You have such a flair for making things differently and not "run of the mill". You've given me some great ideas for designs of cards for any time of the year.. and I love the way you've arranged the strips on some of the cards and envelope flaps! I watch ALL of your videos and love them.. and am definitely going to watch this one today. Thank you for giving me some more inspiration! I save many of your card designs to my One Note on my computer, and when I need inspiration, I got there and look. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Marilyn
