Motley Monsters

What can you do with your designer series paper scraps? Personally, I do NOT like to throw anything away, especially when I paid with my hard earned money. Here is what I do.

First, I take everything out of the envelope and organize it by its printed design. Like so...

Motley Monsters DSP Scraps

You can see that I have very few really useable pieces. I begin by cutting a few card bases in the colors that blend with the paper. 

I pull the largest piece and begin to play to see what I can create. Each card becomes a puzzle for me to put together. I was able to make 7 cards in all. Here they are:

Here is what I did NOT use:

Not much is left over. I more than likely could squeeze out another card, but I was tired. So, these scraps were added to my larger scrap pile. It consists of an array of colors and designs. So, when I need a scrappy card...

Thank you so much for stopping by here. I would love to hear what you think, and let me know what you do with your scraps.
