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!
-Becky
