Turned into several handmade cards again! I am determined to work through my huge overflow of "scraps" to create cards, layouts, and whatever else.
Over a year ago I took a pledge to not buy any patterned paper for a year. Excluded were purchases for DT assignments and classes of course. I lasted a year, from June 1, 2010 to June 1, 2011!! I did have a couple non-DT purchases slip by but for the most part, I have passed on the paper. In that year I noticed a small difference in the amount of paper in my stash. The paper used to be jammed vertically into holders and now they slouch because they are not overcrowded. But there is still a GRIP of paper in my room and then 2+ bins of scraps on top of that. I am still being pretty good about not buying much paper at all even though the pledge is over. I have had a great time splurging on tools and embellies!! LOL
One of the things I am doing to use up all that scrap is make cards. Just sit down for an hour or two in front of the TV or while chatting on the phone with a friend and you'll accomplish alot. Here are some cards I created when I sat down with my scraps for an hour last week:
Hope this inspires you to create with your scraps, You don't need any money or a plan, just sit down and go!
