Finally have the scanner connected!!

Well, my other half install my scanner!! I now can add new items to my blog!! The last few days I did get a chance to work in the studio. I want to share some elements that I made from the first tip I posted. Above are some flower elements that can be added to a card, scrap book page or a altered item. I used a large flower punch with my paint chips and some scrap paper to punch the small center flower and a sun burst. The element was put together with a mini brad. The idea is that it cost almost nothing to have a wonderful element to add to my creative projects! Give it a try and open the door to a rainbow of colorful elements. You will see the samples of paint chips, the chip that I punched a flower and the complete elements.

This sample is from the same tip. The horse was stamped on a paint chip. These paint chips were from the Ralph Lauren collection.

I hope you enjoyed the tip and can see how adding some paint chips to your crafting can give you a new element to add to your artwork!

  3. You know when I try to pick a paint color for the house, I always have tons of those sample cards to choose from because I am so indecisive and need to think it over, match it with furniture and fabrics, so this is a wonderful way to use these up! Thank you for the tip!
