scrapbooking with scraps

I go to the papermaze crop at Otley just outside Ipswich every month and love it :)
 There is a monthly page kit that you can opt in for. I love this as most of the thinking is done for you this gives me plenty of time to catch up with friends and eat cake.
 However I can't resist a little tweak.....
The kit always contains everything to make the page plus some left over scraps that I can never bring myself to throw away.
here's my papermaze page kit from February's crop, I love the colours but would not of chose them myself that's part of the fun working with different products and techniques.

Loved the idea of using the negative from the stickers as a mask so kept it and reused........:)

Is my first page that I created with the left over scraps
I had already chosen the photos to coordinate with the papers as not sure which ones to use
and thought it was a shame to put them back in my stash, so i used them ALL xx

I added cream card stock, buttons and letters from my stash.

I punched a piece of left overs and added some buttons from my stash.
TIP- If like me you don't have quite the right colour button colour it with sharpie pens.
Can you guess which one it is?

(It's the blue/green on the left)
Is my second page using scraps
Yes that's 3 pages from 1 page kit
again I added cream card stock from stash and a few embellishments.

TIP- Using ink from your stash and a mask adds great detail at very little cost.
I applied ink to a wet wipe then rubbed it over the mask.
