Got Scraps?

I'm Scrap-Happy!

For some reason...I have a hard time tossing perfectly good little pieces of paper in the trash. Even little tiny pieces that I'm sure most paper crafters toss and never look back. OH MY!! I'll dive right in there and grab 'em up & save 'em for later! Quick little story. I took a class at my local scrapbook store...and cause I was one of the last to leave...I went rootin' through the trash and gathered up a bunch of wonderful scraps from our project! ha ha ha! Can you imagine! I know...that was probably kinda tacky....but HELLO!! I USE those scraps! Yep...I sure do :) Like this card -- all from scraps except for the card base.

I took a scrap of the brown dotted paper (from A Muse) and punched the scalloped edge on it. When I finished punching...a long skinny piece was left behind. If ya ever used the scalloped border punches -- you know what I'm talkin' about. That's what I stuck across the bottom of my card. I think that's a pretty cute scrappy card if I do say so myself. BTW - that little piece of ribbon on the top -- it's a piece of scrap ribbon :)
