Whew - a little late posting today, but I wanted to get three posts scheduled for this weekend. Keith and I are heading out to work as kitchen staff at our church Couples Camp. I figured - kill two birds with one stone. Get a weekend away with the hubby, and help out too. Should be tons of fun!
Today I am sharing my project from this past week. Do you save your paper scraps?
Let's check out that basket again.
So, I brought out the cutter and a cute basket I had hanging around - "prepare to be vanquished, paper scraps".
Oh my goodness. Seriously? That is way too cute. I was 100% inspired by my friend, Betsy Veldman. She trimmed all her paper scraps into 6 X 6 and organized them like THIS.
Okay, I'm guessing she had even MORE scraps than I do. Hee, hee. But, this one basket totally works for me. I sorted my papers into these categories: White, Black, Blues/Greens, Yellow, and Reds/Pinks. Imagine that - no category for purple. Guess that tells you how much purple I use. Ha.
Here's a shot where you can see the color values. Your categories might be totally different. I puts my browns into the closest thing they matched; in other words, really dark browns went into the Black section, lighter caramel colors went into Yellow.
So, are you inspired to tackle your scraps? I did keep a few longer strips in my original scrap basket. I might need those for scrapbook pages. But honestly? As a card maker, 6 X 6 works perfectly for me.
Hey, you all! Have a great weekend. I have a couple cards to share Saturday & Sunday, so stay tuned.
