Do you ever have trouble getting your family to eat up the leftovers in the fridge?  Dinner last night was delicious and everyone thought it was great…so why is it so difficult to get rid of the leftovers?  I think dinner leftovers are just as tasty (and sometimes tastier) the next night, but everyone just wants to throw them out!

Paper scraps are treated very much the same way.  Beautiful papers, trimmed to the perfect size for your project.  Then the remains (leftovers) are pushed to the side, never touched and probably thrown in the trash.  But wait!!!  There are so many wonderful ways to use up paper scraps.  The Sisters in Stamping are excited to share with you, on this Fabulous Friday, ways to use your scraps in beautiful ways!


I needed a card for a friend who is resigning from the corporate world to be a stay at home mom when her second son is born.  This card, with a sentiment from Sky Is the Limit Sale-A-Bration stamp set, is a perfect fit.


My card features the It’s My Party DSP stack – leftovers from the swaps I worked on in December.  My thought was to try a Herringbone Technique, although I don’t think I got it quite right.  But does it really matter?  NO!  This card turned out beautiful!  I love the bright and subtle color combination along with a touch of glimmer.

Here are the items used to create this card:

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope this and the other great projects provided by my sisters inspire you to use your paper scraps in unconventional and beautiful ways.
