Scraps blog Hop

**If the follower gadget isn't working please come back tomorrow too for Day 2 of the hop and try to add as a follower then.  I will have a new project. Comment on both days for a chance to win prizes **

Welcome To Funky Cards
Scraps Blog Hop!

If you arrived here today from Kerry's blog you are in the right place. If you happened here by chance, please click HERE to start at the beginning.

This blog hop is dedicated to scraps! We all have them! The question is do we all use them?  I find that I use mine all the time because I store them in a way that makes them easy to find and convenient to get to.

My color scraps are kept in binders. Each color of the rainbow has a binder plus there is a binder for black and white.  Patterned paper has its own 12 x 12 bin.  Today I am going to show you a set of thank you cards I made using all scraps.

The cards all have the same design but different scrap paper.

I kept these very simple.  The paper scraps I chose was cut so that it made a statement on the card without having to add much more.

The sentiment was stamped onto the white card stock.

This black and white looks much sharper in person.

I just love black and pink together.

You can package the cards and give them away as a hostess gift or a birthday gift.  Or you can just keep them and use them one at a time.  It is amazing how quickly you can make four new cards or a cute simple gift with your scraps:)
