workspace dining room table today. The LO is my LOAD for today. I found this old picture of Maurice’s brothers and families c 1982 and just had to scrap it! It is scraplifted from one of my favourite scrappy books, The Busy Scrapbooker by Courtney Walsh. I have already used this sketch and will use it again. The book is actually open at the page on top of a RUB, which is full of scraps! I also have drawers full of scraps, both of patterned paper and cardstock! What to do with it all? I am so tempted to throw it all away now and start all over again. I was determined to finish up all my old kits, but although I still have 20 or so sheets of pp left, I can never find the right one for my photos. I have started to cut out shapes with my cricut (flowers on this page for example), and may go through the scraps and toss anything smaller than say 3” x3”. What have you done with your scraps?
The stickers are all ‘family’ quotes that I was hunting through for embellishment. I have a similar problem with stickers, loads of half used pages (especially alphabets), but they don’t go with the papers or I haven’t got the right letters! That’s where the cricut machine comes in to it’s own – I can cut as many letter ‘e’ as I want! I just need some more cartridges so I have a bit more choice as to font and shapes.
Maybe it’s time to be really ruthless!
