Hello OA fans! If you are like me (Patricia), you have lots of scrap pieces of pattern paper leftover. Before you throw them out, take today's challenge. Working with scraps is my favorite way to scrapbook. You can layer with them, tuck pieces here and there, and my new favorite trend is to use pieces and stitch across.
This is what I did here for my layout. Used strips that I stitched across, and tucked pieces in along the line of the photo. I used Saturday Mornings collection to document my favorite shows. And I am embarrassed to say, I had too many that I couldn't fit on the layout, even tried a 12x12. So I got creative.
Using Daily Flash washi tape, I taped all seven shows (photos) front and back to create an accordion fold.
Now I can see all of the shows on one layout! Of course, the dinosaur was a perfect little touch to this since Doctor Who is a time traveler. I cut one of the cards from the collection, and placed the "watcha watchin" part at the top of my layout, and then typed out the name of the shows on the TV part. I like how I got use out of that one card in two different ways.
I just love the Saturday Mornings collection. Beautiful colors, patterns, and so fun to work with!
I am so excited to have one of my long-time scrap crushes joining me in today's challenge. Here is Mandy's layout and what she has to say.
When it comes to scrap papers I like to use them as is or rough cut them into wonky squares. I like how this use your scraps layout turned out and I hope it inspires you too. Thanks P for the awesome challenge!!
