The craziness of Mondays can zap your inspiration and make creating cards difficult. For today's quick and easy cards, I headed to my scrap bin for help.
If you're like me, you have a bin that looks something like this. Whenever I make a card and have extra bits that don't quite work, stamped images or die-cut shapes, I throw them in my scrap bin thinking they will be useful someday. Well, someday is today!
I started by dumping my bin out on the table so I could dig through all the goodies a little easier. As I looked through things, I started grouping items that I thought would work well together. I tried different shapes and colors together. Put images with shapes. Combined images. The beauty of the scrap bin was that I started putting things together that I wouldn't have normally thought would work. Working with all the bits and pieces sparked so many ideas!
I made a dozen cards in a few hours. Some were more successful than others, but it was a great way to use some scraps and put together some quick cards on a Monday!
