Making the Most of Your Scraps

If you don’t know me or haven’t been to my little crafting space in my house is that I am a paper hoarder....but a neat one.  I don’t have paper scraps from my card projects all over my house, they are neatly contained and filed by color.  It’s like looking at a rainbow everyday.
