Hello everyone! I really like to make use of all the little leftover bits from my kits. Everything in the kits are so pretty, I just can’t help using every last piece. Why waste perfectly good paper right?

I decided to make a quick set of cards using some leftover bits of paper in the kits and love how quickly they came together and really stretched my supplies.

I started out with some flat white cardstock from my scrap pile. I added a few quick swipes of mint colored paint and once dried, I went to work building my simple cards. It’s always good to have a few extra cards in my stash!

First I created this super simple card with some scraps of the No.24 Pink Paislee paper in the kit.

I adhered various little strips of paper across the top portion of the card and adhered them down with a little machine stitching.  I also had some extra die cuts from the exclusive cut files for March and added some leaves behind the flowers from the Pink Paislee diecut/ephemera pack in the kit.

I love how the enamel dots just fill in pops of color on the rest of the card! Next, I created this easy card onto another mint green painted cardstock piece.

I had to use some of that pretty Dear Lizzy washi tape as patterned paper on the card front and it looks amazing on the painted background! Man, I love that stuff. Such a pretty washi tape and looks great on a lighter background. I simply added another die cut flower, a border punched scallop strip and a Shimelle pennant sticker from the kit.

I created one last card using more of that lovely washi tape in the kit and more of the pretty diecut flowers from the diecut/ephemera pack.

This time, I used some really small bits of paper and layered them in a stitched mess on the front of the card. The pretty rose gold flower (that looks black here.. boo) looks great mixed with the pretty pink floral background for the card.  I couldn’t resist adding more of those die cut stems from one of the March exclusive cut files again too.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to kill your kit and get ready for the April kit!
