10 on the 10th: Matchy-Matchy

I was going to begin today by saying that after three consecutive posts with vacation photos and a red/white/blue color scheme, I have something different for you today.  But then I realized, today's post is only sort of different!  The photos I scrapped for today's post are from a different vacation (South Dakota instead of Lake Superior), and the red/white/blue color scheme also has some gold, pink, and aqua/teal thrown in.  I guess it's a variation on a theme.  :)
 
Supplies: 10 on the 10th items (listed below); envelope from Canvas Corp.; corner punch from Creative Memories; stickers from Bella Blvd; Candi dots from Craftwork; pen from Foray; ink from Hero Arts; household stapler.

I made this page about the South Dakota Badlands as one of my "Ten on the Tenth" de-stashing projects.  This vacation was like an unofficial second honeymoon for my husband and me.  I made the layout using "matchy-matchy" supplies, mostly from the Pebbles "From Me to You" paper line.  Here are the ten types of supplies that I used for this "10 on the 10th" project.

~10 items~

items 1 & 2 (cardstock)--gold & teal cardstock from Bazzill

items 3 & 4 (paper)--floral & dotted patterns from Pebbles (flipsides are ledger & text prints)

items 5 & 6 (embellishments)--ribbon from ReStyle & cut-apart cards from Pebbles

items 7 & 8 (non-consumables)--smiley face stamp from All Night Media & flower stamp from Darice

items 9 & 10 (throwaway items)--earring card (tag) & canceled postage stamps
 

As always, I used the ten supplies for this month to create three projects--a scrapbook page, a card, and a use-up-the-scraps project.  You saw the scrapbook page at the top of this post, and in the photo above you see the card that I made.  It's a cheerful, all-purpose card.


For the final project, the one that uses up all the scraps, I made...more cards.  I made six in total, and you can see them all together in the photo shown above.
 

I decorated the insides of some of the cards as well.  These cards have served me well; I have already used a few of them.

That's all from me for today.  I wonder whether my next post will also include vacation photos in some form.  Time will tell.  See you next time.  :)

I always wondered what that double sided scrapbook paper was good for, unless you were doing another spread on the back. Now I see you can make cards using it. That is CLEVER!! Well done, dear friend.

I always wonder why I can't do scrapbooking, now I know. It's because I never go anywhere to take photos! But I love your pages

Love what you do with your "scraps" and throwaway items.
We took a "second honeymoon" to SD too. It was the best trip we've ever taken. That was before kids...
With kids I'd have to go with the Dells. :)
