So my latest project has been a bit of a cleaning/organizing project. Whenever I am finished working on a project, my routine has been to scoop up all the leftover scraps into a drawer in my scrap room. Then the idea is to go to this drawer when I need a certain color for a project FIRST before cutting into a fresh new piece of 12 x 12... That was the idea. Until the scraps drawer became SO FULL that I couldn't find what I was looking for, and could barely close the darn thing.
So my project for the last few days has been to make as much stuff from the scraps drawer as I can, and get the volume down to a manageable level.
Here is a photo of the drawer AFTER I've pulled out a bunch of stuff:
So, yes, there is a use for that scrap of pretty paper that you can't bring yourself to throw away! Now my card stash has been replenished, and it feels good to purge that scraps drawer.
More ideas to come soon!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
