I needed a few cards (and quick!) the other day. So I pulled out my scrap bin and dove in. Now... MY scrap bin consists of pieces that I decided not to use on previous projects for some reason or another. So these pieces have a little value to them than just pieces of left over cardstock or ribbon. And I'm really glad I have this bin for just this very reason. I needed it the other day and put together 4 cards almost instantly!
Check out all the "scraps." Right?! How could I ever just toss all those great die-cut pieces or stamped-and-ready images?
They definitely proved their worth with these quick and easy cards.
Here are close-ups of the cards I came up with.
Consider keeping a bin for YOUR partially created project pieces. Those pieces MAY just come in handy some day. Or they may make another fellow paper crafter super happy if you decide they are just not going to be used by you. (Great gift!?)
Three of my cards became belated birthday cards. Because even though making cards is my job, I am still not good at getting my own personal cards out in the mail in time. Hahaha!
And the other became a congrats card to a friend in my Stampers With ART team, Cheryl Lee who I am so very happy for. She earned the Stampin' Up!® incentive trip to Thailand!!!! And I can't wait to celebrate even more with her when we are there together in July of 2017!!! Way to go, Cheryl!
