Waste Not Want Not with SSINK

Good morning!  Today over at SSINKspiration our designers were put to the test to use things laying around our desk and create something with.  Well, I defiantly have things laying around I've been meaning to use I swear!  My dad always taught me to not waste things.  Rather it be paper or the food on my plate.  So this challenge for us came at the perfect time.
Here is my work space showing my scraps laying around, just waiting to be used.  YES even I have little piles laying around on my desk...a neat pile but a pile in the least LOL!!
And here is what I created out of my pile....

 So I was able to create a treat bag as well as a card.  WOW, didn't realize I had that much in the pile!  I was playing around with embossing velum the other day for the treat bag and changed my mind but thru it in the "for later pile".  I also had this heart embossed card layer in calypso coral in that same pile.  The scrap strips with the stacked with love DSP was perfect to pull it all together. 

I had a circle shape in the black with dots and cut the heart out for my card then used the left over piece to create a heart shaped shaker to attach to my treat bag below.  I had a short length of black bakers twine that worked perfectly for my hanging heart.
I had this tied up black chevron ribbon actually sitting on my desk for months and couldn't find anything that I wanted to use it for, but wouldn't dare throw it away( Big NO NO!!)  Glad I didn't cause I added a couple glue dots and added it to the front of treat bag.
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ calypso coral, whisper white
 Ink ~ black, calypso coral
Stamp set ~ Snuggles & Smooches, Crazy About You
DSP ~ stacked with love
Misc. ~black chevron ribbon, coastal cabana twine, basic rhinestones, heart embossing folder, mini treat bag thinlit set, circle framelit set
Now go forth, look at all those scraps you have laying around and see how you can turn them into something beautiful!  Leave some "love" and go see what the other designers have/had laying around on their desks!!
