Cards from scraps
In the past when I would make cards, I had to make 6 of each one. Not sure why, but I HAD to. If I didn't have enough paper to make 6, then I wouldn't make the cards. Crafting was very stressful. Recently when I was working on a card from some scraps, I was only able to make 3 cards. And you know what, the world didn't come to an end. What freedom!!! Now I make how ever many I want/can from the paper. If it is only 1, then that is all I make. No more stress. Well, I still have a hard time picking out papers for cards, but that will never go away.
This past weekend I did some scrapbooking and decided to use up the leftover paper right away. Some scraps make 2 cards, some made 5, but it was so fun to make a card with the papers and not stress over how many I could get out of it. I don't like to waste paper, so I still tried to get as much as I could out of the scraps, but I was able to get the cards done in a short amount of time.
Since I used up the scraps, I don't have the paper name information anymore. Sorry. But I will say that most of this paper came from Crafts Direct!!!!
