Scrappy Wonder

Well, even after doing TWO one sheet wonders, I found I still needed more cards!  I had some leftover embossed elements I had made in blue & black and wanted to find something to go with them.  Turning to my scrap drawer, I found this scrap that went nicely with them.  It was then that I had my "Ah ha!" moment.

I HATE throwing away pretty paper, so I have several drawers of scraps organized by color.  Though I use them occasionally, I've mostly just been accumulating a bunch of scraps.  But NOW I know how to use them up and feel really good about it!

Basically, for the One Sheet Wonders, I've been taking a full sheet of 12" x 12" paper & cutting it into little pieces before figuring out how to use those pieces on a card.  I could do the same with my scraps - just cut them into pieces and see what I can make with them!!!!   

The next picture shows approximately how I cut this scrap of paper.  

The last picture shows the two cards I made using these pieces of scrap.  3 pieces went on the front of these cards, the other two went inside them.
