Talk Time Tuesday: Quick Tip-No More Scraps


This week for Talk Time Tuesday Creative Cutter Carri has another wonderful idea to reduce the amount of scraps you have just laying around.  Leave a comment following this post for your chance to win The Baby Steps Box Set by Fancy Pants.  It has a 5 page chipboard accordian album and over 70 die cut shapes, plus you can decorate the box as a keepsake.  We will choose a Random winner and post it on next week's Talk Time Tuesday.  Scroll all the way down to find out who won the Patriotic Blog Hop and the Graphic45 Design Time Challenge.
Next time you reach for your stash just use it all up!
Don't just cut one, cut as many as will fit on your scrap paper!
Then you have extra card/scrapbook embellishments and not scrap paper!!

This is how it starts! You need to make a cut:
 Then  you put this in your scrap box and eventually you will cut it all down, organize it and end up with this:
Why not just end up with this??
Here is a great video she made to demonstrate. 
Our Patriotic Blog Hop Winner is #1 Amber of My 3E Scrapbooking
Our Graphic45 Challenge Winner is #9 Trisha too of Easily amused, hard to offend.  Please email me your snail mail addresses so I can send your prizes.  Thank you to all that participated your projects were ALL AMAZING.

Love this tip. I have been making multiples of my shapes to cut down on scraps for a while now. It also encourages me to scrapbook or make multiple cards at once. This is a great time saver.

Cari did a fabulous job with this video. Thanks for the tip.
