yay! I love saving extra paper scraps like that. I always thought I was a little crazy for doing that, good to know I'm not the only one!


congrats to the winner, and thank you for sharing your tips with us.

I need to adopt these tricks...I use the whole sheet unless it's a pattern I love and don't have much of. Thanks Laura!

Wow, thanks for showing how you do this! You just saved me a ton of paper!!! I always hate using a paper sheet as the big background because I feel like I'm wasting so much of the pricey paper. Now I can use it!!!


Congrats, Brenda! I hope you get lots of great ideas from your new book!
Laura, thanks for posting these pics! The e-mail of your blog posting is going into my "papercrafting" folder so I can easily pull it up whenever I want to use your awesome idea!

Yes I so NEEDED to see this in action. I tried this but I angled the edges of all my papers. Your way is SO much easier! Love the LO's!
