S{CRAP} on my desk!

A few weeks ago, Kristina Werner posted a video of a card she made using the scraps she had on her desk.  As I looked around my desk on Tuesday - I was inspired to do the same.  I keep a lot of scraps on my there was a lot to work with!

Here's what I started with:
I had a few die cuts, chevron embossed background, stamped paisley background, washi covered heart, some burlap and just some other 'crap'  :)

I laid things out on my desk that I felt went together and was able to put together FOUR cards!
Holy S{crap}!'s what I'm calling my S{crap} cards!  LOL
 S{craps} plus a Simon Says sentiment, PTI Owl, Cuttlebug embossing folder and some bling.

S{craps} plus a PTI wheat stamp, PTI impression plate for card base and buttons.

S{craps} plus a DCWV piece of plaid paper, PTI sentiment and felt acorn.

S{craps} plus silver ink for paisley panel, ribbon and PTI sentiment.

What do you think? 
I was actually patting myself on the back with these! 
Do you use your scraps or just chuck 'em?

Thanks for your visit!

This is amazing Maria! I don't toss my scraps but just kinda hunt thru them if I need something but never ever have I made an entire card from scraps let alone 4! You are the "scrap paper Goddess" now...perhaps a crown out of scraps to wear now?

Now that's a great challenge! I love all the cards you made with your scraps, especially that acorn! I do keep my scraps and at least once a week make myself pull out the scraps to do something with them.

Way to go, Maria! I love your cards, and love them more for knowing they were originally just a pile of scraps! I need to do this, too. I always keep a big pile of bits in front of my workspace. Do try to reach for them, but need to use them more often.

Your scraped cards turned out really well, all so different.

I think this process is great, especially if you don't want to pull everything out.
Fantastic cards as well.
