Using Your Scraps

Do you keep your left over paper scraps after you are finished crafting? If so, what do you do with them? Designer Mary Ann shares a fun scrapbook page she created using her scraps and we think you’ll be inspired to pull out your scraps for your next project.


It’s Mary Ann here today, with a layout using some of my scraps, and a few coordinating embellishments.

To start my layout, I cut the shape of the United States with my die cutting machine. This could also be done easily by searching for a United States map image online, then tracing and cutting out the shape by hand. Next, I added some coordinating pieces from the Graceful Season Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil chipboard set.

I also cut out the shape of Montana, and added the chipboard star to highlight where the photo was taken.

And now for the paper scraps, I gathered all my left over scraps that I had saved from other projects, and pulled all the pieces that color-coordinated with my photo. I then cut those pieces into small strips. I cut them all by hand instead of with my paper trimmer so all of the edges would have more of a mismatched look. To complete my layout, I adhered the strips around the edge of my cardstock, and then sewed a few rows of “messy stitching”.
