Video! Utilizing leftover cardstock pieces

Hello Neat & Tangled fans! Yana is here with you today sharing a quick video tutorial showing a fun and simple way to utilize leftover cardstock pieces. 

If you have been following the Neat & Tangled May Release blog posts you might have seen this Oh Hello card of mine

I loved it so much that I decided to create a couple more similar cards (as one can never have too many simple Hello cards on hand) and film a fun video tutorial for you! Hope you'll enjoy! 

You can watch my video below or on Neat & Tangled Youtube channel:




I used a couple of my favorites from the May 2015 Release starting with the Hello die. I love the script-y font and the size seems to be perfect for A2 cards! I've also included a small stamped Oh, to compliment the die cut Hello and finish my sentiment.

I used a few of the flowers and leaves from the gorgeous Send Pretty Mail stamp set and stamped those onto left over pieces of cardstock and cut those out. Simple but fun! 

Do you have a favorite product from the May Release? Be sure to share!

  2. Gorgeous cards! I love the bright pop of color from the flowers and the black inlaid die cut is beautiful. I keep my solid cardstock and patterned paper scraps all together in a tray inside a drawer. But I think I need to separate the solids from the patterns. I like your system!

  3. Hi Yana! I love your beatiful floral Hello cards! I have a big heavy duty accordian file folder for my scraps of card stock and it holds a ton of scraps. Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Black, White, Gray & Cream, Water Color pieces, and a about 4 extra slots in the back that I use for 12 x 12 Patterned Papers and card stocks too for a Brown/Black, Blue/Green, Pink/Orange, Yellow/Creams. I busted out a ton of scraps for my Mother's Days (greeting card gifts) all occasion cards with matching envelopes. I don't think I cut into a single whole piece of card stock. I made each design 6 times, 5 were for gifts and one set for Myself too! My girls loved theirs for Mday (Katie my daughter and Amber my DIL). I did a ton of die cutting/fussy cutting and copic coloring and can't wait to get the other 3 sets in the mail Monday, because I fly by the seat of my pants and just finished today, this morning! I've still got to photograph the cards from my set and maybe do some tutorials on my blog for each. Thanks for sharing you video and beautiful cards. Paulette S.

    1. thank you so much, Paulette! This sounds like a fantastic system! I don't have a lot of room in my craft room (or craft corner, lol) so I'm trying to keep it small and simple.
      I'm off to check your blog now, hugs!

  8. Your cards are wonderful. I store my little pieces in a container as you do. I am always reaching for it. My pattern scraps are stored in a separate container. Thank you for the tips.
