So many people do Project Life style albums, that cut apart cards have become a regular part of collections. For those of us that don’t scrap that way, at least not yet, these cards pose a bit of a challenge. We have to be more creative in order to get them used. Now if there are cards on one side, and a patterned paper on the other, great! I will just use the patterned paper side. However, that is not usually the case.
When I worked on this page for my kill a kit project, I was targeting those pesky cut aparts. In this case, I did use them much like a divided pocket page. I wanted to put 3 photos on this page, so I chose a couple of cut aparts to go into the opposing “blocks” on the page. I reserved that top block for a coordinating scrap of paper and the title.
I felt that this page was pretty busy, so I didn’t embellish it much. (Yeah, I’m not a huge embellisher anyway. I admit it.) Again, I went for the sticker sheet first and added a few in the bottom blocks. Additionally, I pulled 2 die cuts from the Fancy Pants Wonderful Day collection. Did I mention it mixes really well with Here & Now? I love it!
Hopefully the next time I use cut apart cards, I can use them more creatively. Maybe I can add them to my layers or cut them into smaller pieces. Any ideas?
