Mission: Use scraps



How many of you have a bin of scraps that is OVERFLOWING? I know that I usually do because I refuse to get rid of any pretty paper.  I've gotten better over the years but obviously not good enough.

I can't throw it away, but at least its organized.
So today I challenged myself to only use paper from my scrap bins to create a card. I wanted something fun and bright so I went a pickin'. The papers jumped out at me :) I love it when that happens.

Here is what I came up with:
Scrapbin Creation
I love how this turned out. A few punches and some ribbon do the trick every time. See all that pretty layered ribbon? I wanted to also use up some of my ribbon. I may have a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to ribbon. Maybe we'll just say I'm a fanatic because it makes me feel better, lol.

No I don't have a problem.
I will be adding today's card creation to the 3 Girl JAM challenge #9 anything goes challenge. I know it's not their ribbon but the rules say you only have to use ribbon on your project :) I think I can handle that! You should go check out their challenge blog and all the cute projects and inspiration they have to offer.

Well off to see what else I can come up with for the evening! Happy 2013 everyone!
