Welcome to the Scrap With Your Scraps Challenge for April 2014!

From the sounds of it we all have tons of scraps of paper laying around. I know I do! Lately I have been trying to come up with innovative ways to use up my scraps and am loving the results. I thought a challenge would be in order to help us all motivate each other to use up those scraps in fun ways!

This challenge is all about fun so there will be no pressure and no voting! At the end of the month random.org will pick a winner for me to send a small RAK to. We’ll have a twist every month just for fun.

There are no limits on the amount of people or entries per person for this challenge - at least for now. We will see how popular it becomes. Leave love for others if you can but don’t stress about it either. Only layouts created and uploaded between April 1st and 30th, 2014 will count towards this challenge.

Any project that you use scraps on can count for this challenge. Layouts of any size (sorry, digital won’t work for this), cards, tags, whatever! To me, a scrap is considered anything that is no longer the full size it originally came in. So if you cut a 1 inch piece off a 12x12 paper, the rest of it is a scrap in my eyes since it is no longer a full 12x12 piece. However a 6x6 piece of paper that came in the size originally is not a scrap until it has been cut into. If you cut into a full sheet of paper that particular piece is not considered a scrap. It has to be paper that was already in your scrap stash before you started that particular project. I hope that all makes sense!

Please link your projects to the thread and allow public embedding so I can update the front page. Please tell us where your scraps are and/or how they were used.

LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the right-hand side and click on ‘Link/Embed Image'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

ALLOWING PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

April’s Twist: Use 3 or more different patterned paper scraps on your project.

Example:
I wanna call you mine... By Scrapanda

I had so many scraps I donated a huge shopping bag full to the local pre-school a few months ago. I already have an overflowing basket now. LOL! I'll play.

Here's my try. I'm so out of the game, I can't remember who the products are by. Once upon a time, I could just look at paper and tell who made it. Apparently that skill is long gone!

However small my scraps are, I'm still not one for throwing them away, and this sort of card proves that even small pieces are useful for SOMETHING!

Hi All,

I just got back from vacation. I picked up my mail and found your RAK Amanda. You are too kind. Love those medallions.

Vacation was good. It was nice to get away. I managed to see my beloved spoonbills in three places and dolphins.

I have to confess. I went to HL in Texas and I bought some stuff. I'm pathetic!!!

Looking forward to coming back in May. Thanks again Amanda.
