Good morning to everyone!! I was recently asked to be a guest designer for a challenge over at Love to Crop! So of course I jumped at the chance again! This is my 2nd time over there and I hope to have MANY more! :) I'm sure you have been to Amy's blog many times but if not...you MUST go!! Amy is a wonderful person with SO much creativity!!
Our challenge this time was to make our project with all SCRAPS!! I heard that & thought "hmm, that sounds easy enough"! But it was NOT!! I maybe took it to the extreme but I wanted to make sure my entire card was scraps...card base, mats, even down to the twine! Well, I accomplished just that!!
Stamps of Life- Owls2love) Now this stamp would not fit in my punch shape as it is a one line stamp....BUT I just inked up the "You're A" and stamped that, then inked "Hoot" & stamped it underneath! :)
And here is the inside...again with scraps, I actually had this piece already punched from a previous project that I didn't use! I just added the small owl stamp from Owls2love!
I have tried just about everything to store my scraps! File boxes, plastic drawers, ziploc bags in my file cabinet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock...but now I am SURE I have found the right solution...for me! Here is how I store my scraps...
here! (and of course I used my coupon!!) I then used my label maker to identify each section. I like to use the old school way of "red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, brown, white" I don't even do "indigo" or "pink"...just plain 'ole colors! And in the very last section on the top is my Stampin Up designer paper scraps! I like to keep these separate! Here is a side view to show it isn't even at it's full capacity...yet!! What is nice about this too, is you can put them in any order that works for you!
Now it's your turn! Organize those scraps & jump in on the Scraps challenge over at Love to Crop! Be sure to "link up" your project over at Amy's so we can all see what YOU have done with your scraps & for your chance to win a special prize from Amy!!
