What do you do with your leftover Designer Paper?

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your weekend been? Some people are lucky and have an extra bank holiday day off today. Being retired this doesn't make so much difference to us. Though we are probably less likely to go out as things will be busier. We had a nice time on Saturday visiting our daughter and meeting their dog again. This visit was more successful and the dog didn't bark at us once. Next weekend they will be visiting us as it will be my birthday. I do hope the weather is good. 

I have been using the Claritystamp Designer Paper in a lot of my cards lately and this means that there are bits and pieces of the paper leftover. The paper is far to good to waste so this is what I came up with. 

Can you see all the different papers I used to make the background. I think it looks a bit like a quilt. 

This is one of the Claritystamp club dies I received last year. I am working my way through my club dies to make sure that I use them. All the black card came from my stash of bits and bobs. 

I still have some bits and pieces of Designer paper left I might have another go at this design. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a good week
Happy Crafting

Hi Jackie,
what super pretty paper and such a prefect way to use it up too.
All in all a great Snippets make and such a super stampused as weel.
Yes you are right about Bank Holidays when you are retired.
So glad your Daughter's dog is getting used to you now.
My Granddaughter said this weekend she wanted her Dad to buy me a dog so she can look after it and take it for walks for me how sweet is that.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
