Using Up Scraps

(Cards created just using up those little bits and pieces you would normally throw out)
(These were the first 2 cards I created and then used up the leftovers on the other cards)

Using up scraps is one of my fave things to do. I just love the challenge of looking at even the smallest bit of scrap paper and seeing what I can create with it. Especially if it is a favourite patterned paper that I simply cannot throw in the bin.

So here is a set of cards I created after making these 2 card - the entire set was created from a sheet of patterned paper measuring 8.5inches x 8.5 inches.
Have a go yourself - not only do you use all those little bits up - but just look how many different cards you can create.

Luv Sandie
