My Very 1st Challenge!
I came across this blog that was challenging people to use their scraps and send in a photo of what they create. I have so many scraps that I probably should never have to buy paper again, ever! But like most scrapaholics I see the stuff in the stores and ooooh and aaaaaah over it all and buy it. I started off scrapbooking and had so many gorgeous pieces of paper left over that I couldn't bear to throw them out. Cardmaking was born because of that. (It has become my passion BTW.) I still used to have scraps left over from the cardmaking and kept putting them aside. With this challenge I think I found the ultimate way to use up the teeny tiny bits of paper and lace and ribbon. I made several gift cards from the stuff in my bins. They are mostly 2 x 2 or 3 x 3 size. Just big enough to slip onto a gift box or put a hole in the top corner and put a pretty ribbon so it can be tied to a gift bag. Wish me luck. Oh and here's the link in case anyone else would like to check it out. (I hope I do this right.)
