Got scraps? I have plenty and save even the itty bittiest pieces of paper because "I can use that for something....one day" lol. I thought I would share a little routine that I have gotten into. I rise and shine at 4 am. Work isn't until 8 so I have plenty of time to get things done. Now that I have my Spellbinders dies neatly organized as shown in the "Organize this Mess" post, I can see at a glance what sizes I have. My scraps are filed by color and I have one file for patterned paper. I lay several dies on the Spellbinder base plate and trim the scraps to fit the shape. Run it through, emboss and Wha laaa! These really save time in the long run when I get ready to make a card or scrapbook layout! If you want more detail, you can use the Cuttlebug embossing folders with the Spellbinder as well but you will need the Raspberry Spacer Plate.
I hope this little tip will help rid you of those little scraps for a more organized craft space.
Now, if I can just figure out what to do with the scrap scraps!! Shame to throw them away but alas, I suppose I should learn to let go...................... Maybe I will just put them in a clear jar and enjoy the colors!
