Happy Garden Girl....

Sometimes you have to dig in deep and use up those scraps!  lately, I have been promising myself I would not buy new papers until I go through my scrap bins and get those piles down to half their size.  let me tell you, that means I could be making cards every day for a full year using my scraps before I allow myself to buy new paper!  Yes, my scraps piles are THAT large!

I store my scraps in plastic carts, and separate by color groups and then holiday, specialty (like vellum, flocked paper, mirror paper, etc), pattern, stripes (I use a lot of stripes!)  Anyway, we'll see if I can bring the pile of scraps to a more reasonable level!
