Wouldn't it be great to be so organized that as you finish a layout, you immediately use your scraps to create beautiful cards? Alas, I am not quite that organized...but I have done much better about keeping my leftovers together with my paper pack and have set a goal to use as much of the scraps as possible to create cards or other projects.
Fortunately, with Close to My Hearts fabulous Wishes (#9033) and Originals (#9032) Card Confidence Program Books, creating beautiful cards out of scraps is a cinch!
Normally when I'm choosing a card pattern from the books, I decide on the stamp set and papers, then select the pattern based on the size/shape of the stamps I've chosen. For this exercise, I look at the size scraps I have and select my patterns to optimize the use of scraps!
Below are the cards I made using the scraps from my Caboodle kit of the month.
