Sunday - sneaky scrappy day

I had all afternoon to play in the study while Ian took the kids to visit their Nan and Pa (Pa turned 81 on Saturday. Happy birthday Pa!). I worked on a little project I've been meaning to do for ages. My folder of scrap paper doesn't close anymore it's so full, so I decided to make some pretty page collages. These can be used later for scrap layouts or cut up and used for embellisments.

By the end of the afternoon I think I had done about a dozen pages. The best way to do this is with a big glue stick. It doesn't matter if the glue gets on top of the patterned papers as it dries clear. I used 12" plain white paper, which comes free in many scrapbooking albums. And I used my punches to make the paper more textured and interesting looking.

What do you do with your scraps?

Hello, cool page backgrounds! I keep my scraps in zip loc bags and use them all the time. I have an aversion to cutting into a new piece of paper, so I'm always going to my scraps for all the little bits and pieces I use on my page. Of course, paper piecing uses up heaps of scraps :)
