Fun Way to Use Scraps of Stampin'Up! Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper

Today I'll show you a Fun Way to Use Scraps of Stampin'Up! Delighfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper! If you are a typical paper crafter you find yourself swimming in leftover scraps after you complete your projects. One of the fun ways to whittle away at that pile is to use them in constructing another project, right?

Here's today's card using scraps of Delightfully Eclectic DSP


& a bit closer look...

Squares cuThis is a super easy card because you are simply cutting squares of the designer paper.  Don't let the diagonal placement scare you off---thers's a simple method that makes this so easy that a elementary student could easily do it--that means I can do it...super complicated designs are not my forte.

Here's the secret...on the layer to which you will be adhering the squares...simply draw a pencil line using a ruler from the upper left corner to the lower right corner. Then begin adhering pieces with the side adjacent to the line leaving approximately 1/8" between the squares.   When you reach the end of one row roughly snip off some of the excess to fill in the smaller squares at the ends of the rows.

I used one design on this card but it would be fun to try mixing designs and see what results!

Remember, Designer Series Paper is on sale through the month of June.  This particular pack is now only $25.50 (usually $30) It contains 48 sheets (12 different papers with 2 designs per page = 24 designs to play with)!

I'll give you step by step directions for today's card below followed by the supply list.


*If you use this month's host code  (CJD9AH46)  you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).


1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score long side at 4 1/4 (card base).

2. Cut Bubble Bath cardstock 4 x 5 1/4; adhere to card base.

3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 7/8 X 5 1/8:

    *Pencil a diagonal line from upper left to lower right corner

    *Cut approximately 10 squares of designer paper 1 1/2 X 1 1/2

    *Begin on either side of the line to adhere these squares with the side aligned with the pencil line. (Note: for the moment just leave the excess there unless you can use it to fill in a small area at the end of the rows.)

    *Repeat this process making the next line of squares align positioned next to the previous square leaving 1/8" between them...the resulting front side should look like this..


        *Turn the layer over & with your paper snips trim the dsp next to the white layer...

  Back    *Adhere this to the Bubble Bath layer.

4. Die cut Celebrate (Wanted to Say Dies) shadow from Garden Green cardstock; die cut the overlay from Bubble Bath--adhere to the shadow layer & attach to card front with dimensionals.
