Hello Crafty Friends,
After looking at this massive bucket of scrap paper I decided that I should start using them instead of creating more. I just can't help it sometimes...when I want a certain color I just cut a new piece of card stock. I even have numerous pads of papers (6 x 6, 8 x 8, and 12 x 12) with scraps in them too.
I started by creating small piles of color coded papers. It doesn't put a dent in the bucket, but at least it is a start.
Then I created a sketch I wanted to use (rotated one 180 degrees) and started piecing the colors together. These three worked nicely since I had some of the My Mind's Eye paper scraps all thrown together. Talk about luck! Who knows what else I might find if I keep digging!
My intentions were to create birthday cards for all of the staff at my school before we go back (we go back one month from today...time sure does fly!). Well, the train was too cute for an adult, so I made it for one of the office staff's grandson instead.
Here they are individually...
I added ribbon, gems, brads, and die cuts to make each one unique.

I am definitely going to make more with these scraps...it will be a Super Scraps Sunday too. I challenge you to use your scraps before they get out of control! What will you make? Can't wait to see!
