National Scrapbooking Day Challenge: Paper Scraps

Stacy Croninger - Digital Managing Editor

Hi scrappers!

Are you ready for a challenge? This challenge requires you to hunt down your scrap papers. I’ll give you a few minutes to do that.

Welcome back. For this challenge you are to create a layout using only scraps of paper. You can use a cardstock or patterned paper piece for your layout’s base, but no other full pieces of paper can be used, cut, ripped, die cut, etc. You can use other embellishments but any paper item must come from a scrap.

This challenge is two fold: 1) you’ll use up some of your scrap stash; and 2) it stretches your creativity as you put those little pieces to work on your layout.

Here’s an example of a layout from our May/June 2013 issue that shows how to use your paper scraps.
