Friday Inspiration File #111

Friday, April 5, 2013

I mentioned yesterday that my new cardstock scrap 'system' is
working so well for me. 
I know it seems so obvious, but I just never did it.

I used to store all scraps, no matter the size, together in a drawer and I just never wanted to dig through there to find a small piece.  I would always end up cutting into a big piece that could have been used for something else.  Now, with my tiny scraps right there in my die cutting area, it is so easy to find just the right piece and use up those tiny scraps.

Such a simple thing makes me so happy:)
New projects have been added to the File...#111.
Check them out and have a great weekend!!
I also started a new board..Art Journal....if you're interested.  If you are, check out the pin to Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday videos! 
 I lost a few more hours there!


  1. Thanks for sharing your system for storing your scraps, Kara!

  2. Glad you have found a system that works for you, still trying to figure mine out!

  3. We all have to have a system that works best for us. I'm glad you have the system that works best for you.

  4. Your craftroom looks beautiful organized and well designed. I always look forward to your Friday Inspiration file too!

  5. I love this idea and do the same on a smaller scale but I will go bigger so it will be easier to dig through! Thanks for the tip! I did the drawer years ago and never found anything. Your room looks beautiful!

  6. I do mine pretty much the same way. All of my scraps are in a box that sits right beside me. I always go to it first and most of the time I'm able to find what I need. Sure does save on paper.

  7. Your room is so bright and clean - you're putting me to shame!
