Scraps Away!



I have several folders full of those poly pockets containing the left over pieces from various collections of papers - many of which were freebies from different magazines. 


The stickers and scraps of papers for these 3 cards, I think, were from a Making Cards Magazine collection - probably at least 2 or 3 years old!

I challenged myself to use them all up and after a bit of playing around, found they toned nicely with some large Papermania Capsule die cut flower shapes (which had been kicking around for a while too!) - so that just leaves about 30 more pockets of scraps to use up!!

  4. A great idea...I hate throwing away any papers and I think you have made the most of your stash. These have really turned out very pretty.

  5. What a great way to use up your scraps of paper, they are fab. I am guilty of throwing my offcuts in a box never to see the light of day again.
