Just Us Girls #469 - Word Week

Welcome back after our Christmas break!  It's time to play again at Just Us Girls and I am the hostess this week for our Word Week.  The word I have chosen is Leftovers.  I want you to think on the lines of using up many leftover pieces you find in your craft area.  Maybe you have some backgrounds you were playing around with, some die cuts, some stamped pieces, some foiled pieces that never made it onto a card.  Let's use up some of those Leftovers!

And I would like to welcome our 2 Guest Designers for the month of January!  A big welcome to Janet Ribet and Cindy Major!  Come on over to the JUGS Blog to see how Janet, Cindy and the rest of the amazing Design Team have used up some Leftovers!

The only piece that was not on my desk is the kraft card base.  I used the patterned paper, the copper cardstock, the die cut deer and the foiled sentiment to make this shaker card.  The shaker pieces were all leftover pieces laying around on my desk including sparkly stars and some circles from a polka dot die cut tag cover.  There are also some sequins which were randomly scattered on my desk that didn't make it back into their containers.  The acetate was cut from some packaging that I threw on my desk that I thought would have some use in creating.

This one again uses items found on my desk.  The foiled background was an experiment to see how I could change the background color on some Foil Mates by sponging ink onto it before I foiled it and it worked!  The beer bottle, die cut oval and the foiled sentiment were in a basket of saved items.

Come over to JUGS to show us how you use your Leftovers and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would put you in the running at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Your leftover pieces made such wonderful cards it's as if you planned them ahead, Sue. This was such a great challenge. Maybe we should do it yearly.

This was a fabulous word choice this week, and you really went to town on it! Your cards are so pretty and I love how you created the shaker with elements on your table! So cool!
