I was talking with another crafter a few weeks ago, and she mentioned that she has a hard time creating with out a pattern to follow. She even shared that she can not visualize how a project might look using other papers not used in the sample. This is foreign to me, but I have since learned it’s real for many crafters. (Who knew?) This lead me to the conclusion that using up “scraps” would be nearly impossible with out having a jumping off point. I will admit there are times that my muse is not flowing and creating scrap card after scrap card will deplete the little creativity I had. But I know that I will not be sending 5 cards to the same person, so I have no trouble doing the same (ish) pattern over and over again with the scraps I have laying around my craft table.
So, without further ado, here are some cards I created from scraps. I share them with you now in the hopes you too can find inspiration to create and clean up your scraps at the same time. 🙂
Hope these cards give you some inspiration!
These cards are adorable! You have taken scraps and made them beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration!
Because of your mentoring, I personally am getting much better at designing scrap cards. Using different papers is not near as much a problem as using up my scraps can be. Thanks for the ideas and … the fact we ARE allowed to just play!
