Use Your Scraps Layout



Hey everyone! I’m back today with fun layout to share with you all. If you are like me, after each and every project you make, you end up with lots of leftover scraps.

While I can say that I have gotten better over time, I still have a bit of problem throwing paper away. I really don’t have a problem getting rid of the tiny, uneven cuts, but I do have a hard time getting rid of the strips. I just know down deep in my heart I can use them for something. Well, today I am!

First, I began with a neutral base for my layout. (I didn’t want the background competing with all of the colors and patterns of my paper strips.) I then played around with the placement of the photo and strips on the page.

Once I got the strips and photo just the way I wanted, I added in a few sentiment stickers to fill in the gaps and placed my title along the top.

I rounded out the page with a little hand stitching, some embellishments (buttons, enamel dots, and chipboard), and a tiny bit of journaling to finish it up.

I am so happy with the results and that I finally used up some of my leftover scraps. I still have a bunch of scraps left, so I better get back to work using them up. 😉

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Thanks for sharing your ideas with us regarding how you like to use up your scraps. I have two ways that I use up some of my scraps:
    1) I have a vintage Dymo label maker, the kind that has the plastic strip that you feed through and squeeze to emboss letters onto the label. I cut down my leftover colored cardstock to the same width as those plastic labels and feed them through and create my own labels. I color the raised letters with a fine tip Sharpie.
    2) I’ve used some of my scraps when I make ATC’s. Given the small size of an ATC (2.5″ x 3.5″), a little goes a long way.

      Those are wonderful ideas! I definitely want to try using my scraps in a label maker. Thanks so much!
