This month I chose to get creative with all the cardstock scraps I’ve been hoarding over the years (check out my tip at the end of this post). I grabbed my scraps that went along with Jeanette Lynton’s Color Me Monday post this week and created two cards from our card how-to program, Wishes and a layout from our scrapbook how-to program, Imagine. I just love how they turned out and I used almost all scraps to create these projects!

Here's a little tip for sorting your cardstock scraps...


Sort them all out on the floor by color
