Welcome to the Scrap With Your Scraps Challenge for March 2019!

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! We’ll have a twist every month just for fun.

Leave love for others if you can but don’t stress about it either. Only layouts created and uploaded between March 1st and 31st, 2019 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. 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.

March’s Twist: Green and/or gold scraps

I am really getting into this scrapping with your scraps.

Too many scrap and not enough time!!

Actually got my example done early for once!

The green striped paper is a scrap for the twist. Also scraps are the black strip, photo mat and blue striped paper.

The yellows and the dark green are all scraps as well as the "wood" frame. At least I made this one without making too many more scraps!!!

All but the vellum for the journaling was scraps. I did have to adhere the bg papers to white card stock as I pieced the paper on the right side then still needed a bit of ribbon along the bottom to cover the white.
It worked out great as it gave me a place to put my cut out without having it look like her feet were cut off!!

Looks like card making is the only thing I get done lately. But it is a good way to use up some of my scraps.

Wow, lots of inspiration going on this month! I've been fighting off a cold or the flu for the last couple of weeks, but I needed to force myself to get the church bday cards finished and in the mail!

Wow, you ladies are going to town with using up your scraps. I haven't gotten much scrapping done yet this month, but managed to use scraps on my first two layouts.

All the cardstock except the base papers.

On this one, the green strip is a scrap (twist!), and the top journaling card plus the 100% boy circle element were scraps cut from a pocket card.

I just came to the realization that it is so much easier for me to scrap with scraps than whole pieces of paper! I'm sitting here staring at three full sheets of Vicki Boutin paper I just purchased, and I'm dithering about cutting into it! If it were scrap pieces, I'd just go for it, but those whole pieces intimidate me. I think I need a Scrap With Your Never Before Used Stuff challenge. Can anyone relate?

I often have that problem! I sometimes just think I should be "saving" those whole papers for something special! LOL!

I finally got the courage up to cut into my Vicki Boutin papers to create a layout, and I ended up with lots of scraps for another layout! Cardstock scraps on this one include the wave, whale, and scalloped border. And I guess once I cut into the heart paper, the leftover became a scrap, so all the fussy cut hearts are technically scraps.

Scraps are the big burgundy piece of patterned paper, the white cardstock, and the big heart, which was already cut out but never used.
