No Scraps Left Behind!

Hi friends, you might call this tip frugal or you might call me a hoarder but after yesterday’s video tutorial on the torn frame a few people said they could not bear to waste the paper from the inside of the frame, well, neither can I. Here is what I do with the small bits of good quality paper I can’t¬†stand to through out!


As I mentioned in the video I have used other punches on my scraps but find that I really only use the photo corners and buttons. I punch tags out of leftover holiday papers though because I always need more of those. Paper scraps that are larger than 2″x2″ get filed by color in my scrap paper hanging file folders. How do you deal with your scraps? Let me know in the comments! Til next time happy crafting!



WOYWW #147 & Hand-Cut Cheverons

Well, folks, I had some friends over to craft last night so I had to tidy up a bit lest they find out what I slovenly pig I am! ūüėÄ So, my desk is actually quite tidy this week:


Not, just my desk, check out my room:


Now, Let’s just pretend it looks like this all the time shall we?


I did manage to get 2 pages done while the ladies were over last night (now that’s a surprise!) I wanted to attempt¬†to hand cut some pattern paper¬†into a chevron¬†stripe and let me tell you, that is for the birds! I glued¬†a bunch of strips down to a sheet of cardstock on the diagonal, then repeated¬†my pattern¬†on another sheet of cardstock going the opposite¬†way and cut it into strips¬†and assembled it. I’m not going into more detail because it wastes paper lining it up and it a total time-suck. I’ve¬†already thought of a better way. I’ll share it later.


And since one page was enough of that technique I just zig-zag cut some of the paper scraps and slapped it on this paper. Good enough.


So, what’s on your work-desk this Wednesday? If you want to have a peek at some other crafty desks head over to Julia’s blog (the gal who started the WOYWW¬†phenomenon) and have a gander, heck, why not snap a pic of your desk and join in the fun? Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
