This Friday, I've got no pics, just some cards I made next Friday and some tips on making your own stash of cards :) Hope you enjoy it!

At a crop on Friday the 13th this month all I did was make cards all night using scraps and things I was supposed to put away. I usually keep a box of scraps that I need to sort and another can or box of embellies to put away in my scrap room so I can clean up quick between projects by throwing things in these bins. Sometimes it is just easier to use them than put them away so I threw it all in an Art Bin and off to cropping I went! Here's what I created:

This helps me always have a steady supply of handmade cards! Plus they cost me virtually nothing since I am using scraps.

Another friend of mine uses the paper leftover from a layout to create cards right away — she never to put anything away! Hope these ideas inspire you to get more out of your scraps :)

Happy Cardmaking!!
