Using Freebies x

The mid month card challenge over at Scrapology is to make a card using freebies which would other wise sit around gathering dust!
As I don't tend to buy magazines which include free papers or stamps I turned my attention to other freebies that I have trouble throwing away & store ready to be the finishing touch to a page or project.

Firstly a card using clothing tags & a stamped sentiment.

This card was made using the spare buttons that you find inside clothing, sewn into place with contrasting thread. I'll add a sentiment when I come to send it as it would be great for an anniversary, engagement...

I hope you like these examples, hop on over to our blog to see many other freebies in use & details of the prize on offer x

  1. I've got a little collection of Fat Face and White Stuff labels too! Love the way you've used yours :o)

  2. I haven't thrown a 'nice' clothes tag away for about 3 years! I have quite a collection now!

    Love the cards Sheena + the photos are great too. So crisp and clear.

  3. Great cards. I've used Fat Face labels before on layouts, they come in very handy lol!

  4. Lovely cards Sheena. Good use of saved bits and pieces.

  5. Clothing tags are a bit of a favourite of mine! So useful for cards and layouts. I love your button
    heart, very chic and homespun at the same time !

  6. Great idea to use these bits and pieces, I keep lots of them too, but mine are gathering dust!!

  7. I have a collection of clothing tags too! Great ideas x

  8. What great cards - love the both.
