I am resolved to continue to get this under my control. So I will also continue to search for more ways to achieve this goal. In line with that, my project for this month involves using up come of those scraps. I was inspired by another crafter to use these scraps on a scrapbook layout. The layout resembles a quilt so I guess you can call it Scrap-Quilt. I used strips of paper scraps and layered them on a solid piece of cardstock. Then I added my picture and embellishments. I think the layout turned out great!
I love the effect. What do you think?
Here are some other suggestions on managing those scraps:
1. Purge your piles of scraps by donating to a local schools' art department
2. Eliminate scraps that are smaller than a certain size( for example smaller than 2 in.)
3. Set aside a day when you can create die-cuts with the scraps that you will use later on your projects
If you have any suggestions for managing scraps, please share them with us. Happy scrapping!
