Congrats!…and Scrap Storage

Hello!  Just thought I would share this anniversary card I made using “For My Tweetie” by The Angel Company.  I love these little birds, they are just too cute.  I colored them with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI always try to use my scraps whenever possible, so this card with the exception of the card base uses all scraps.  

Speaking of scraps, I thought I would share with you how I store mine.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI think I purchased these at Staples or Walmart.  I store all of my Papertrey paper scraps that are smaller than a card base in these.  I have two of them.   They close up to a nice compact size that I can easily store by my desk.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I separate all the colors with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cheap white cardstock so I can fit more in them.  I always check my scraps first to see if I have the color that I need, which really cuts down on the amount of scraps I have to store.  I have found this to really work well for me.   For my other scraps, I throw them in drawers marked Textured Scraps, Metallic Scraps, Patterned Paper, TAC Scraps.  Since I mostly use Papertrey, the drawers work well for everything else.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog today.  I plan to be back on Thursday with new WORDart.  I hope to “see” you then.
