Something for Nothing 2nd Prompt

Do you have a way of storing your scraps of patterned paper after completing a scrapbook page or card?? I just wedge them in a 12x12 clear plastic pocket, they are not organised at all, in fact it is overflowing! Why am I telling you this?? The Shimelle's second prompt is about using up your scraps of paper, there are lots of inspirational ideas to get you to use them up...punch circles, mix paper and fabric, make something old into something trendy, and go with a grid. I was inspired to use up some of my scraps. I loved the "Go with a Grid". Since working on the 1st prompt, I though I would keep up the Metal theme so added more brads and some metal snowflakes! My stash doesnt look smaller though! Here is a sneek peek of my next page. I have gone with the Circles theme...thank god for Cricut machines! I have cut over 100 circles from some lovely paper scraps. I will post more once it is finished.

Great layout using the snow scene picture. Its such a good idea to save and use scraps. I am naughty because unless they are quite decent size left overs I just throw them away!!! Kerry xx

Love the way you have made a grid with the patterned paper...it all works so well together.My scraps are all shoved in a box together...maybe if they were sorted I'd use them better!!
