Chrissy's Belli Challenge #12 - SCRAPS

What is the Belli Challenge you ask?

Belli = Embellishments.

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!

So come join us in the Belli Challenge and be sure to post your link to the card!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is SCRAPS! Are you like me that when you are working on a project and it doesn't quite look right, you save your scraps? Or when working on a swap you make one or two too many and then have left over pieces? Well, I have a good size box of scraps. There is a photograph above of a FEW of my scraps! Sadly, I move on to the next best thing, ALL of the time and tend to forget about this hidden treasures that could make fast, beautiful projects because some of the work is completed already.

Your challenge this week is to make at least 2-3 projects using your SCRAPS. If you could use more than one on one particular project....EVEN BETTER!

Make a completed project and share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC12. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC12 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge! The winner will recieve a handmade personalized journal in a similar style as the tutorial I wrote yesterday. earlier.

Deadline to make a comment with the upload and do the Challenge will be on Monday evening. A random drawing will be held on Tuesday and the winner will be announced on Wednesdays! This week's winner is Nancy Grant. Click on her name to see her awesome gallery!
