    Wow! What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks!

    For me, I keep my scraps as I’m thinking I’ll never know when I can use them. Or my daughter who’s 5 scraps too and she loves taking over mummy’s scraps. :)

    That is a great giveaway. This class sounds fantastic.

    I keep way to many scraps. I recently have been living by the 2×2 rule: anything smaller than 2×2 inch I am throwing out. And the same as Anne-Marie: I have a 7yo son who loves to play with mommy’s left overs!

    Nothing smaller than 3-4 inches, tho.

    Great giveaway…I would love to participate! I keep every scrap, even the small ones. Sometimes I just need “one little piece” of something and I hate to cut up a whole 12×12 for that. It’s a horrible obsession…haha

    I just spent all day yesterday color coordinating and organizing my scraps. I tossed the scraps of the patterned paper scraps that I don’t care for, but not before punching a few small squares of each..because my mentality is “you never know”.
    Debbie Hodge’s Page Parts Challenge sounds like just what I need!

    I keep virtually every scrap, and every once in a while I do an entire page just from scraps. I find forcing myself to use only what I have makes me be more creative.

    I would absolutely love to do this class. I keep all my scraps in a drawer-I noticed yesterday how out of control it is getting. I definitely need a new system.

    I too have bags of scraps. At first it was to hard to throw anything away. So I found a great way of keeping my room organized and not throwing the scraps away. I work with a middle school group of young scrappers and they love the scraps and are so creative! I also, work with the St. Louis Foster group and use scraps there too teaching the kids how to make life books. The contest sounds very interesting and just up my alley with small dosees of creative ideas so my brain can take it in while I create a wonderful project. Thanks for letting us know.

    I keep my scraps organized by color and I use them on almost every LO. I love my scraps

  17. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    I do keep scraps. Recently I sorted them by colors in the 12×12 drawers. I have 7 drawers. Cardstock and pp goes together. It is much easier to use that way! I keep a separate pile of the old paper and supplies that I will not use. I still need to decide how to get rid of it – sell, donate, give to my friends… The decision has to come soon because this pile is huge LOL

    As for me and my scraps….for the most part I keep them…I do have a little basket that I put scraps in for my boys to use for art projects.

    I keep all my scraps – never know what you might want them for… also I have two sons that like to play in mommy’s scrap room, so they really come in handy – I have a drawer just for them and they use them to make things.

    The class sounds very interesting and intriguing.

    I have had a small stash clearout and it’s only really embellishments that I pass on. This afternoon I’ve been making cards for my DD’s 10th birthday card and have been using up some old patterned paper and cardstock scraps, so never say never.

    This sounds like a great way to challenge my scrapbooking style and learn from ladies with a wealth of knowledge and ideas.
    I save and use my scraps. I sort out papers I no longer want and donate them along with other goodies to several charities. Some of it I sell at my annual garage sale.
    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    I would love to participate in this! My art room has been taken over by scraps, my computer is taken over with photos that need to find a place my scrapbooks…

    I have an art group that I belong to that meets once a month, called the Pointy Hat Art Posse (PHAP for short)- we set up a table each month for things we want to share, and often my smaller scraps go there….

    sounds great!!! I never throw any scraps away :)

  38. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    I totally hoard my stash to the point that it is unusable…I have started giving it away. The easiest thing has become to let my six year old use the scraps on my table when I finish a project. She can usually do a few from my scraps and she LOVES it!!

    I haven’t learned to part with anything yet. I’m fairly new at this so it’s not too overwhelming yet. Also, my adorable granddaughter (nearly 4 years old) loves to cut and glue, so these bits and pieces are perfect for her to use. I’d love to win the free class. I’m sure it would help me greatly in scrapping the story of “MiMi and Bailey.” :o)

    Looks like an awesome class…. I have lots of scraps left over and tend to purchase supplies so I have them on hand…. I’m a pull things together as I’m creating kind of person…. Have a hard time getting supplies to use because I have a picture at home waiting for a certain item…..

    Win a class? That would be awesome. Then maybe I could actually use some of my paper. I do have a hard time parting with scraps and I’ve actually even just grabbed a few and put them on a page to make a layout. And they look pretty good. I wish I could do it more often–and I wish I could quit buying MORE paper! LOL

  54. Cristin
    Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    I often keep my old paper and scraps and a couple of times a year I purge. I have a friend who is a new scrapper so she gets anything that’s still usable, some scraps are kept for cards, some are tossed!

    Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    Ever since i heard of a RAK i now give most of stuff i know i am never going to use away. It makes me feel better knowing its going to a good home. I dont however give scraps away. If i can see a use for them or i am sick of the paper i will throw them away. I know its bad.

  62. Kristan
    Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    The best way I found to get rid of my stash is to sell it at a LSS yard sale and get the store credit. The old stuff leaves and then I am not paying out cash to replace it.

  63. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    This sounds like a great class. I’m always looking for new sketches, and I defintly want to learn new things. The timing is certainly perfect since I’m in the final week of school and summer break is about to start.
    Anyway, about my scraps…Funny you should ask. I just cleaned out some of my scraps. I usually keep them all if they are 1″ square or bigger. Now I do that only with solid colors and they have to be bigger ( 2″ or bigger) and the patterned paper has to be even bigger or else I won’t find a use for it because there’s not enough of it for pages or cards.

  64. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    i scrap save – BUT – more recently have been giving them to a friend for her daughter to use
    and she is getting much enjoyment out of them

    I use my scraps a fair amount; but, I also give some to my mom for her collage (painting) projects. I am also more than happy to give stuff to friends just starting out in SBing or sell some at scrap sales :)

  66. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    I’m so bad that I keep everything because I love it all! I need the push to use more of the mounding piles of beautiful patterned paper I own :D

    I love to organize, so I am constantly rearranging my stuff and purging what I know I won’t use. I give stuff away to my aunt who is a teacher all the time but I do keep strips of patterned paper for cards. This class sounds like SO much fun!

  73. Posted 6 years, 7 months ago | Permalink

    What an awesome giveaway! I keep my paper scraps in different 12 x 12 envelopes by color – green, red/colorful, black and white, and blue.

    I usually go over my stash of magazines and old papers and try to give them away as RAKs or, recently, to my sister-in-law, who is just starting out scrapping. =)

    I used to keep all my scraps, but they would get so lost in the bin that I never used them. Now I either make cards right (if there’s enough left) or I give them to my 3 year old daughter who loves to glue them to paper.

    I have a huge bag full of scraps I keep them and sometimes use them up months later esp my favourites, there always seems to be a use for them.

    What a great prize! So here’s my comment :)

    Scraps? I keep in CH 2 pocket holders. Old pp? I keep and share with my dd. Between the 2 of us most of it gets used. After 10+ years of scrapping I’m picky when it comes to buying pp so my stash really isn’t in need of purging or giving away.

    I try to throw my patterned paper scraps away if they are less than a half sheet, unless I really love the paper (like the old KI stripey paper, that’s good to save even if it’s just a little strip). I have an accordian file for scraps of paper but really…I hardly ever use it. That’s kind of dumb and wasteful now that I think about it.

  89. aude touzot

    I keep allmy scraps too….making cards out of them is very liberating! I feel like I have spent my money well when I can make something from something that I have had for years. I alsouse them for projects the kids take part in and I don’t feel I am sharing something ‘precious’!
