You know the ones I mean? You use some white card, and there's a little bit left, so you keep it, but it's not big enough for the next thing you need so you start another piece, and then there's a bit of THAT left too.... and so on and so on. And white, well, there's always a use for it isn't there? So you don't throw away even the tiny pieces.
I don't know about you but I've ended up with TWO snippets boxes, one of various coloured and patterned paper and card, and the other just for neutrals - black, white, cream, kraft, silver and gold. But the neutral one was overflowing and it was time to take drastic action!
Then I spotted an article in a recent issue of Quick Cards Made Easy, featuring the die that had been the covermount that month. It used some pretty BoBunny papers, most of which I had odds and ends of among my snippets, plus loads and loads of white die cuts. So, very unusually for me, I set to and made almost exact replicas of all the cards in the feature. I say almost, because not having full sheets of any of the papers, I had to chop and change a bit but as they are all part of a set and designed to work together, the general idea is still the same.
And I cleared out a HUGE pile of white scraps with all those die cuts.
It was really very relaxing copying the pictures and layouts in the magazine rather than creating them for myself, it reminded me of when I used to knit and cross stitch, always following a pattern.
I am sharing the bottom card with Craft Rocket Challenges - Pretty Pinks and I'm heading over to the Snippets Playground to share the whole lot!
