As part of our effort to purge and organize our sb room, our Scrapbookingroom Yahoo group has taken on several organizational challenges this year. We are currently tackling that much dreaded problem we probably all have with the paper scraps. Personally I keep my scraps in an accordion file organized by colors. In order to keep the stash under 'some' control, I no longer save regular cardstock smaller than 4x6. You'd be amazed how much that simple rule has helped.
Another way to control the stash is to simply use it, obviously. So in addition to organizing and purging the paper scraps I've challenged the ladies to use the scraps to make a paper creation for a swap. This is a 1:1 swap of either a card, an ATC, a doll or a tag. The goal here is to use some of the scraps and have fun at the same time. Here are two of the tags I've created thus far. The top tag: chandalier from Impress Rubber Stamps and french script background stamp from SU. Bottom tag: Paper from SU and that gorgeous stamp is from The Angel Company. TFL!
