A real 'scrap' mini!!

Some of you will have read that I organised all my scraps into individual acrylic folders, one for each colour plus neutrals...well I have also done the same for my embellishments, one drawer per colour..... patterned paper and ......cardstock!! Told ya...OCD Queen (and I wonder why I have so little time to myself!!) Ribbons, flowers and buttons were done a long time ago...and as for stickles....

 need I say more? LOL

Anyway I am on a mission to use all these bits and pieces I lovingly spare from the bin :0) I saw a mini recently on the Pink Paislee blog, super simple, fold 6 x 12 papers in half and attach!! Great huh?

I have a lot of 6 x 12 pieces as I only have a mini cricut and that's the size of my cutting mat. Armed with a selection of randomness I folded and punched holes and tied with seam binding.

I also have a little box that contains anything I have cut on the Silhouette or Cuttlebug and didn't last, a use for these little bits and bobs!

And here we have a mini documenting our day at the Discovery Centre with DD#1 and DGD :0)

Thanks for popping in today,

  1. Love your mini, Ali. I enjoyed peeking into your scraproom :)

  2. This is fantastic and I love all the details! I am a scrap hoarder too but I never know what to do with them but this is the perfect idea.

  3. I've pinned it - hope you don't mind. I'm really impressed by this one....makes me want to rush out into my scrap room & create!!!!!!!! Love the doodling page. I need you to come sort out my mesh of a room, I think:):):)

  4. Mess...MESS of a room, I meant. No, I have NOT been drinking!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Cute mini and i am always a lover of an organizedccrafter.....our spaces do not have to be funky. One site you may wanna checkout to use stash is the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog if you dont already know about it.
