There is a reason we call it "scrap" booking. And you can apply the same logic to cards. You will create lots of scraps and you can use scraps of almost anything in creating paper art.
This week I took a few of the scraps from one of the Sale-a-bration items - the paper pack and ribbon bundle- and created a couple of cards. I hadn't done much with "A Little Birdie Told Me"- a fun set that covers almost every occasion.
Also, I got back to my chipboard challenge trying to figure out what to do with some of the simple shapes. I took two different sizes of squares, cut them in half diagonally and then notched out a corner to create these "corners." The craft and rubber scissors are great for cutting chipboard. Now if I can just figure out a good use for all those little chipboard circles...
