A little bit of paper...

By now I am sure you all know that I love anything to do with paper! I was recently rearranging my paper collection (it's enormous!) and found some scraps that I had saved which of course I had to put to some good use so I'd like to share some photos with you:

First up, I found some scraps of winter/Christmas word paper and cut out the
individual phrases and then made this cute little envelope from some scrap red
paper and cut out individual letters and words from remaining scraps and also
snowflakes from some wrapping paper scraps. This is for my pen pal Christelle.
What do you all think of these? I also cut a few for my pen pal Maria Laura. 
Maria Laura's little word pack looks like this:

For this one I used a security envelope I'd decorated with swirls, each hand-drawn
and colored with markers, and wrote the message by hand in a gel pen I got at Target.
Lastly, I used up a few scraps making little paper hearts and Valentine's ephemera for the next big holiday. I love cutting hearts out and using up as much of my scrap paper as possible. Here are the hearts:

Those are just a few of the things I made, you can also check out some of the little paper scraps I decorated with small drawings on my other blog, Mes Petites Creations. Going through my scraps helped me to find more bits of paper to share with pen pals, make some extra stationery/cards, and see what supplies I have to use and also helped me see what else I needed to acquire. 

This New Year 2012 promises to be a very creative one for me! I can't wait to share more of these times with you!

Happy New Year 2012!
