An easy to use your scraps up today!

Do you have LOADS of scraps, or just a few? This project is perfect using them up. 

I started with two bases pages in espresso cardstock, and 20 squares left over from the sweet safari paper collection and cut them diagonally to create triangles. 

Using an outline, I placed the triangles until I got the shape of a heart. I wanted the heart to look as if there was a glow behind it, so I blended tattered rose distress oxide ink  on the center of a 11.5 x 11.5 White Daisy cardstock. Still a little bland, I added some splattering with the black shimmer brush

I carried on the triangles with a line of them mismatched on the right side. To complete the layout I used micro tip scissors to cut LOTS of tiny cuts along the scraps avocado pattern paper to create grass. A few animals fussy cut from the HERO paper of the sweet safari collection helped tie in the theme. All of my pictures are matted using the stunning candy apple cardstock. I am still missing a title, but that could take a while, I couldn't want to share. 

I showed how to create the heart on during my Make it Monday Video tutorial in my group DanYellScraps & Friends. I'd love for you to join us. We have over 100 crafty peeps who share a love of CTMH, Challenges, Tutorials and more. 

I hope you find this inspiring!
