"Helloww! I am E.T. of VIBGYOR Krafts from Karachi, Pakistan. It's not because I am tall, lanky and green that I am called E.T., they are my initials :o) All the guys used to call me that in school because it was SO cool to have initials "ET", well it just kinda stuck and now it's like a 'real' name! Anyway,  I am so honoured and thankful to the DT for choosing me as a guest designer. I was told that the challenge this week would be "to use your scraps", I was kinda happy about it. Here in Karachi we have ZERO craft supplies so I treasure every bit of RAK I get, yes... I save every bit of scrap left from designer papers... even the free digi papers that I print out. You wont believe it but I even save my bad Silhouette cuts and I DO use them in my creations... no one can tell they aren't cut well after I am done working on them! All my creations that you are seeing today are made up of scraps left from various digi papers and CS. Hope you like my work and I'd love it if you stop by "my place" <> to leave a lil love."

Now get inspired by our Design Team!

I love A Day For Daisy images - you can always spot the style across the room.  And they work so hard - there is new stuff all the time, theamed to the time of year or just for fun. I used all my scraps as the background - and I will give you a quick 'how to' on how to create the effect
For the background
Take some patternen paper - one print or several
Tear it up into rough scraps and ink all the edges - the rougher the better 
 Stick all the bits overlapping ramdonly on to a piece of backing card larger than you will need. Don't worry about securing all the tiny edges - just get it down!
 Then cover the whole lot with a good dollop of PVA - use one of these plastic glue spreaders to work the glue well over the whole surface and scrape off any excess so you don't get big lunps
Leave it to dry OVERNIGHT before you try to cut it into the shape you want. Yours
