Scraplings were introduced on the Hero Arts Blog just a few weeks ago. I would provide you with the link, but unfortunately I lost it. Basically, an artist that works for the blog had all these 'scraps' of cardstock left over and invented what she calls a 'Scrapling' out of her leftovers. Isn't that a cute title? They are approximately 4 1/4 by 1 1/4. They must have an adhesive standard size label and at least one embellishment on them to be called a 'Scrapling'. I think they will become the latest rage! Goodbye ATC cards, Welcome Scraplings! They can be tucked inside cards as an 'extra gift', or used as bookmarks or tags.
I actually made my scraplings for a swap on Splitcoaststampers. I used all Stampin Up! cardstock: Real Red, Really Rust, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Blue Brocade, Brillant Blue, and Pink Passion. I used a variety of stamp sets, here they are in the order that they appear in the picture: MFT 'Hearts Galore', SU! "Its Snow Time", SU! 'Festive Friends', Hero Arts 'Cupcake Images, SU! 'Tu Tu Terrific", Hero Arts 'Happy Thanksgiving', and SU! 'Fruit of the Season'. I used ribbon, adhesive crystals, crystal effets, and brads for embellishment.
So next time you have lots of cardstock leftover from a project, go ahead and try making a scrapling! You won't be sorry! Till Tomorrow, Amy
