What to make with leftovers.....

When I have bits and pieces of scrappy goodies leftover I just can't seem to part with them.  You know those little squares from those fun papers and that one single sticker or flower that hasn't been used?  I like to challenge myself to use up those things and make a mini with them. 

I had this little tag chipboard book lying around and had been wanting to use it but just couldn't get myself to.  It's small, like 3x4 or somthing like that so it was going to be a challenge for me.  I went for it anyway.  I started with printing out the photos.  This way I knew I had to finish it because the pictures were ready to go. It worked, it's done.  Here's the outcome.  It really ended up being quite chunky.  You'll see lots of odds and ends in here.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great week!


  1. This is gorgeous! Doesn't look like leftovers at all! :-)

  2. Jackie this is adorable!!!! I can't part with scraps either.....I usually save them for cards but I love this idea...it came together beautifully!!!

  3. OMG ... what a beautiful tag book! Love it!

  4. This is great. Love all the chunkiness to it and I really love how you edited the photos and used the retro warm B/W colors for these pics. It ties the whole album together.

  5. I love the layering you did with so many colors and textures! Beautiful job! Sometimes the best things in life are free....just like our paper scraps!


  6. Your mini is so cute, great job.

  7. Stunning project - I can't bear to throw away scraps either, and this is such a wonderful way of using them :)

  8. oh! This is simply awesome. I love the little tag album, pretty embellishment and the photos are all so sweet!
