Tuesday Tutorial: Leftovers Card

I filmed this video last week at the same time as the Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge video, and thought I would share this way I used some of the left overs with you.
I really made it up as I went with this video and thought it could be fun for you to watch as I just make mistakes and do what I can to still make it cute. Of course, this isn’t always the way I like to work, but thought it could be a very fun side for you to see.
In this video I talk a lot about the “In Colors” from Stampin’ Up, they are going to be rotated out very soon, and I LOVE these colors, so if you are interested in them, I would really recommend contacting a Stampin’ Up Representative, my friend Tammy White, is willing to help you out too…if you are interested in these colors before they retire.

I also used really cute Purse stamps from Sweet and Sassy Stamps that I think you will find adorable 🙂

I hope you enjoy, and I also wanted again to thank everyone for the awesome time on Saturday when everyone popped in for National Scrapbook Day!  I thought maybe I should also share with you, Mothers Day there is a special surprise that I have the amazing opportunity to take part in, and while I want to share it with you all, the only way to get in on this, is to sign up for the newsletter at ScrapCessories.com

They are part sponsors for many giveaways on the AboveRubiesStudio.com website, and they are going to be hosting a really special giveaway, but you HAVE to hurry and you HAVE to sign up for their newsletter, ASAP! 🙂

  18. Thanks for the wonderful video. Have lots of leftovers I should use.

  19. Mary Ann Huntington says:

    Last year when I began this wonderful hobby I actualy bought packages of scrap paper not realizing I would wind up with drawers of it after awhile! Oh well, at least I have scraps of nice cardstock in colors I don’t ordinarily have. Your card looks so cute and easy. I like the ribbon tied to the strip on the side.

  20. I’m glad you make mistakes, too. 🙂 It turned out very cute.

  21. Linda Carson says:

    Cute little card! My problem is I have so many embellishments I can’t get myself to make a simple card without Stickles or brads or buttons… and then it isn’t a “simple/quick” card anymore.

  22. Arlene (GrandmaTo5) says:

    Great use of scraps! I’ll have to think about that more often. TFS

  23. Katherine A. says:

    Cute card Megan. Thanks for sharing a video with a mess-up on it. It helps those of us on this side of the camera, that are less than perfect, feel better about our goof ups.

  24. I LOVE that corner chomper!

    😀 Nice recovery on the booboo!

  25. Great way to use up your scraps!

  29. Marlou F. says:

    Scraps… mountains of scraps… now to use them!

  30. Jan Lynn says:

    Thanks for shareing this great use of scraps. We all make little slip ups. It is just what we do to fix it that matters.

  31. I need to use more of my scraps. Thanks for sharing. I did use my scraps on 2 cards that I just did, but I have tons of scraps. LOL

  32. BethAnn says:

    Fix-ups are the best kind of tips. We all have scraps, and it’s great to see how others use them up. I’m always trying to find another way to use mine! BethAnn

  33. Donna C. says:

    Cute card.


  34. Christine Rogers says:

    I’m such a miser, I love to see scraps used and gain new ideas for them. Thank you

  35. Just started with making cards and I can see why people love doing it. There are so many cute things that can be done. I can’t wait to master my Gypsy and counting the days until my DVD arrives.

  36. Love using my scraps. Causes creativity to flow. thanks for sharing

  37. wish I would take time to make cards more often. I do have a ton of scraps. And using stamps personalizes it so much.

  38. I love to see how other people create and solve challenges lol. (I call it Card 911, I’ve been working on a post about it for my blog).

  39. Debbie - NanaBugaboo says:

    I save my scraps too. I even use the outlines from some of my cuts. They make cute tags and you can stamp your message inside. Keep up the good work.

  40. What a cute card! I love using my scraps for serendipity squares, cards and fixing mistakes.

  41. Dianne Davis says:

    Wow, you really think fast. Cute card and great job on fixing the mistake. I keep my scraps but I’m sooooo slow!!! TFS

  42. You inspired me to use some scraps. I made 11 cards this week from scraps only. I could make many more with the whole box of scraps I still have. Can’t seem to throw a piece of paper away.

  43. I always enjoy your site and your great ideas. I have a question for you and for your followers: what is the recommendation for the best permanent adhesive? I have struggled through testing several and have not found a great one. Can you share your experiences? Thanks

  44. One suggestion to share: I save the outlines when I cut shapes and words from my Cricut expression. These are great for sponging designs on pages and cards. I just cut a soft sponge into several pieces and use them over and over. I especially like to lightly sponge words (love, family, home, etc) as a background and then I assemble my page or card as I would with patterned papers. Love your site!

  45. Marilyn says:

    Where did you get the purse stamps with the cute sayings?

  46. Debbie C. says:

    I love to use up my scraps and you made this cute card so quick and easy…love it and those stamps.

  47. Glad to see so many people DO keep there scraps! I have always done this and keep them right on my craft table in a container so I can pull something out to use easily. Cute card, cute hair and as always, great video.
