Scrap cards

Hi Everyone & Happy Friday!

This weeks cards are made using the scraps from a couple 6x6 paper pads. 

For this card I cut the strips into 1" squares and then cut the squares on the diagonal. It took me a few tries to get a quilt look that I liked. I used the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 mini deck, Prima flower, Unity sentiment, and Colorbox scarlet ink.
Sometimes I cut paper with the intent to make a card but it never get made. This is one of those. I finally inked up this stamp from the Unity/Donna Downey Create Today set and added some ribbon. I'll add a sentiment to the inside when I need to use it. The paper is from the Cosmo Cricket mini deck I used on the quilt card. The ink is Colorbox night.
The final card used a scrap from My Minds Eye Stella & Rose. I've had a package of diecut borders and finally used one. I added a Prima flower, a Unity sentiment, and a rhinestone. 
*Throw back Thursday sales at Unity
*For anyone doing Project Life I found out that 6x6 Making Memories and 6x8 Simple Stories Snap page protectors will work in a 3-ring binder. 
* The new challenge at Sue's Cricut and Crafts is posted. Get out those  Unity Christmas stamps and enter! Please :)
