Card of the Week: When You've Finished a Scrapbook Layout, Make a Card

One way that I use the paper pieces leftover from a scrapbook layout is to make a card with them right away.

Since I already have all the patterned paper and coordinating cardstock on my craft table, these cards come together rather quickly. 

I recently finished this layout:
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; Cardstock: Bazzill; Die Cuts: Jillibean Soup; Flowers: Prima; Border Punch: Fiskars; Buttons: my craft stash; Brads: Making Memories; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

And made this card using the small pieces of coordinating papers that were leftover:
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; Cardstock: Bazzill; Flower: Prima; Border & Circle Punches: Fiskars; Button: my craft stash; Sentiment Font: Emma Sophia; Doodle Pen: Inkssentials; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

One layout done. Another birthday card to add to my stash, and fewer scraps to organize and store.  

I encourage you to give this a try after you have completed your next scrapbook layout.  You'll easily make another card to have on hand, and have fewer scraps to sort and store away.  Win, win if you ask me.
