"That was Really Random"

Is one of my son's new favorite phrases and my lead into this post of forgotten, random cards :) I've been trying to use up my huge supply of scraps by making cards with the leftovers from layouts. It is much easier to use the coordinating papers and embellishments I've already chosen, than to start from scratch each time.

The images on my Cricut cartridges call to me sometimes :) These Sassafrass papers felt very nautical to me and perfect for this sailboat. Used  the "Life's a Beach" cartridge. Inside sentiment says "with me".

This one is for a teacher friend of mine (hopefully she misses this post) and I used the "Wrap It Up" cartridge.
Added a little Stickles to the schoolhouse bell and used Fancy Pants papers.

Love how this one turned out :) A Fancy Pants journaling spot, button and papers were the perfect start to this birthday card. Added some Martha Stewart bakers twine, Making Memories flowers, and a Stampin' Up tag.

I've had these American Crafts plastic flowers in my stash forever! WR Memory Keepers paper, Echo Park sticker, and Fancy Pants buttons. The top layer (grid paper) is popped with foam adhesive.

Hope these cards made you smile!
