Today is National Scrapbooking Day and I am choosing to celebrate it in a very rebellious way...I am making cards for our troops with Operation Write Home "Be A Rebel" Card Making Party.
Challenge #2 - Use Something Hoarded by Carol
For me the most hoarded stamping supply is patterned paper scraps...after all, they looked great on the first bunch of cards and I am certain that I will use them again someday, right? Ha! Not unless I make myself...but throw them away and deny myself the opportunity to bring them to life again later? Never!
Did I jump on the "wrangle your scraps" bandwagon? No, not exactly. But I did select this bunch of scraps to get me started. I used what I could and then forced myself to toss the 'unusable' pieces. It was tough, let me tell 'ya! But, I did it. I made it through the navy blues today. Tomorrow I will pick another color, at least that is the plan!
The stripes are all scraps from a Stampin' Up! 6 x 6 pack that was discontinued a few years ago. The sentiment is a digi that I will have to research it's origins (it was also hoarded since this time last year.)
Two challenges done, and the third is mine so I guess that makes three challenges done. So on to challenge #4!!!
