I was inspired by this challenge by a few different things. A few weeks ago I was working on Christmas cards, and as I was using a piece of paper I had forever (1 year or more is forever to me! LOL) I decided I would make as many different or as many cards I could with that one piece of paper. 2 of the cards were the same and then 6 were different.

The other day I was organizing my scraps and I have TONS of them, so I thought it would be cool to pose a challenge for all of us! There are a lot of challenges going on, but this one is a little different.
I consider a scrap a piece of paper that is left over from a project and it's too small for a layout and/or too big for a card. I also will accept any scraps you are about to have b/c of doing something--here's the catch--use the rest of the paper up when you are doing your layout, card, whatever!
Here are the general guidelines:
No need to sign up. Just post here when you make a project.
Projects include altering something, making some sort of tag/embellishment, layout, card, evelopes, anything you are working on!
Anyone can play at any time.
Combine this with other challenges, if you want.
Examples of ways you can use your scraps:
Use it as part of an embellishment, use pieces to die cut letters, punch shapes, make a card with it, etc.
I am thinking about once a week "extra" challenges to add that little push. If someone comes up with an idea, by all means join in the fun! :)
That's really it. This is just an informal challenge to push us into using our stash creatively! I'll start the first challenge on Monday.
