Scraps to Scrumptious! - by Helen Chilton
If you loved Helen’s clever scrap cards in the January issue, here are two more fabulous ideas for you to try.
I had a lot of fun picking out all dotty scraps for this and finding suitable circle stamps. I was going to cut the background scraps into circles instead of strips but couldn’t quite get it to work.Cut a circular piece of card and arrange dotty paper scraps in strips. Punch out various blue, yellow and magenta circles and stamp with Retro Flowers and Inkadinkado dots. Stick to card and stamp ring of dots round them in black. Cut a larger yellow circle for the centre with a magenta frame. Stamp as shown. Add scrap of black and white dotty paper with blue circle at centre. Add shell and pearls to finish.Number CardAdditional materials...

This card uses various scraps already stamped with numbers from previous projects. I’ve backed them up with arithmetic type squared paper. Make a side fold grey card. Layer up the green squared paper with the black stamped numbers top and bottom. Piece together the two large number backgrounds, one coloured, one black and white. Add the blue tape measure along the top. Frame the man with the tiny tape measures, coloured in red to coordinate. Add eyelets.
