Get Well Soon & 2 Birthday

Same SU! scraps. I made 3 of these cards, except the other two are "happy birthday". The base card is DCWV, and the sentiment is Hero Arts. You know I had to add paper piercing!

Question for you: Do you throw away a strip of cs that is less than 1/2 inch wide? See that pink cs I stamped on? I usually don't throw even the smallest strip away. That little pink strip did all 3 cards. Now I don't save EVERY little scrap that size, or I would have tons more scraps. But a small strip of white cs that size I do throw away now, since I tend to have more white cs scraps than any other color.

Organization tip #2:
(See yesterday for tip #1 Storing dps by vendor)
I store all my cs by color. I have 12x12 shelving (full), 8.5x11 shelving (full), and all my 12x12 in a couple of magazine holders w/ dividers. I have 2 more magazine holders w/ dividers holding all scrap cs in seperate ziploc bags by color. One magazine holder for Bazzill scraps, the other for non-Bazzill cs. I acknowledge that I have paper issues. To partially quote Lauren, http://llaurenb.blogspot.com/, I have more paper "than any sensible person needs...but I'm not giving it back."

HA! ok, that's twice today you have cracked me up! (btw, to see oneself quoted online...very COOL...but soooo weird!!!)

BUT i am always glad to hear that other ppl have "paper issues" and/or generally too many supplies. it makes me feel as close to "normal" as i get!!!

ps: to answer your question, i only save TEENY scraps if it's paper i looooove...or i can think of an immediate use...or, as in the case of the princess books, i had a lot of small coordinating scraps that i could visualize using all together.

pss: the FIRST time you cracked me up today was this morning when i read your comment about the *TWO* red dinosaurs!!!!!!!!!! (nearly spit my coffee out!) :)
