Welcome to the Scraps to Treasure "Anything Goes" Blog Hop.  This month the only rule for the hop is to use our scraps to create our treasures.  You should have arrived here from Cicily - If by chance you just dropped by for a visit the complete line-up is below and you will want to be sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss out on viewing all the great creations as well as an opportunity for some blog candy.

Our hostess Robin Scott will be offering some great blog candy.  It's a Crafty Grab Bag!  That sounds like so much fun!  In order to be eligible to win you need to leave a comment on each of the participating blogs.  If you choose to follow all the blogs you will get an extra chance to win!

Here is a photo of the scraps I pulled from my pile:

I selected the color scheme from the July Colour Challenge on Life. Paper. Scrapbook.

For my first card I used all of those colors and sketch #3 from this months Card Sketch Challenge.

My first card:

My next creation was for the Kraftie Kre8tions Recipe Challenge using the following:

1. Any thing but a "plain square or rectangle" card

2. Must have 2 layers plus 1 embossed layer

3. Sentiment - Thinking of you, Get Well or Just Because

4. Must include a ribbon

5. Any other embellishment you like.

I chose to create a round monochromatic card.  I used my favorite Sizzix embossing folder, a Sizzix butterfly die and ribbon roses.

My Second card:

My final creation for this evening was another card for Kraftie Kre8tions. This was for the Sketch Challenge.

Here's the Sketch:

I opted to rotate the sketch 1/4 turn clockwise.

My Last card:

I still have enough scraps in my selected pile to create several more, but it is late and it's way past my bedtime!  

I hope you have enjoyed my cards and all the other wonderful creations made totally from scraps!  And now I will send you on your way to Lucy at 

Happy Hopping!


  1. Love how you did this by pulling the scraps...then deciding what to make. I usually start with my idea...then go hunting through my scrap pile. Your cards are all the color scheme!

    1. Thanks Camille - I normally don't do it that way but I chose a color challenge first. I think from now on that is what I was going to do as I was able to get more done because I had so many coordinating scraps pulled!
