Scrappy

Last week I spent some time trying to use up pink scraps of paper. I've decided to dedicate each month to using up scraps of one color in card making (and maybe scrapbooking too). I lost steam after three days, and I only got halfway through the pink scraps.

Here's what I did:


You might notice some red scraps in there. They were filed in the pink folder. Still, not all of the cards are complete. I plan on adding some stamping to them. Now I have to sort through and see what stamps might be appropriate for the cards.

I'm putting my plan here in case you have envelopes and file folders full of scraps too and you'd like to join me.

March: Yellow
April: Purple
May: White
June: Red
July: Blue
August: Orange
September: Black
October: Brown
November: Green
December: work on the files that still have scraps

Oooooo, pretty! Do you use these for your own personal correspondence? I'm wondering if I join you in making cards..who the hell will I give them to? No matter..I'm IN!

Stumble across your blog and love the idea of your monthly scrap challenge. I too have mine separated by color and think I may have to join you! I am saving your site to check back in your progress!

You spent "some" time making cards? Making up that many different cards would take me days! :D You've hit on a great idea, Anna, for using up your bits and pieces, and will be looking forward to the months to come.

I'm excited for November. I love green! Except November means it will be winter again, so let's not get too eager about the green month okay?
