Don't Throw Away the Leftovers!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I am going to show you a quick little trick on getting the most out of your scrapbooking supplies. Lately I have been trying to find new uses for my leftover scraps. One day I was sifting through my partially used die-cut sheets and had a cute idea. I can cut a portion of my die-cut sheet out, back it with patterned paper, and create a layered look on my layout. So that is exactly what I did.

You can also use your negative portion of the empty die-cut sheet as a mask and mist over it or you can trace it to create your own pattern to cut out. You could also trace it and use it as a faux stamp on a page. So many possibilities with something that we would normally just discard and not think twice about. What other uses can you think of for your empty die-cut sheet?

Until later!
