A Layout Of Scraps

Hi and happy Friday!
We've all got them...SCRAPS! Some people keep them, some throw them away. I always keep them.
I consider myself a pretty frugal scrapbooker.
After creating with my August kit from Memorable Seasons which consisted of the October Afternoon Cake Walk collection, I seemed to have quite a few strips of paper left over. I decided to use those strips for making a layout with long banners (which are very popular right now).

The smaller left over scraps worked great for cutting out my flower die cuts.

Another way to get more use out of your papers is to cut out the insides if you plan to use them for layering. Now you can use that cut out piece anywhere you want.

Have a great weekend!!

Great layout! Love how well the papers compliment your photo! I too am a frugal scrapbooker and will frequently cut the centers out of the big background papers and hold onto my smallest scraps for diecutting. Glad I'm not the only one. ;)
