Make Something Monday: Using Scrapbook Supplies

Hello all,

I am sure many of us on here have scrapbook supplies and no intention of actually scrapbooking.  I know I am guilty of this.  I tend to find excellent deals for supplies at my local Ollie's and TJ Maxx/Marshalls stores.  But what to do with the pieces of this and that included in some of the packs?

Here are some collaged envelopes that I made using the bits from a scrapbooking kit and strips from a tear off pad.  I like the look of the raw paper against the white and also the perfect pieces from the scrapbooking die cuts. It gives it a shabby chic look but with more color than that style is typically known for.

I am sure you could do the same along edges of big sheets of paper to create matching stationery.  Just throwing out ideas!

Hope this finds you all happy and creating lots!


  1. oooh, I like the idea of scraps on the edges of stationery...

  2. Your envelopes look great!
