Today's Daily Special is "Project Reduce Scraps". It's a new special I thought up. What is it? Well, yesterday as I was cleaning up my studio, I realized I had so many scraps. . .yah know, cut up designer paper, cardstock, die cuts and images, as well as opened packages of stickers and embellishments and so on. I need to seriously reduce my piles of scraps so I decided that I will go on a mission to not cut up anymore designer paper, not open another package of embellishments and stickers, not cut up any new cardstock until I reduce my piles of scraps.
Anyway, here is the first card I made using primarily scraps of stuff I had lying around. The only thing that wasn't a scrap item are the sentiment and ribbon. I stamped that image on to a scrap cardstock and added the ribbon.
We'll see if I can reduce my mess. This will be tough because I don't like to use materials of the same design consecutively in a row. I have this thing about not repeating my designs. That's the reason why I have so many scraps. Anyway, we'll see what I come up with throughout the week.
