I’m a big fan of using products in creative ways and scrapbooking on a budget. Although I’m currently in a place where I can let my budget be a little larger than it used to be, my “budget crafting” ways will always be my go-to.
The other day I took apart my 12 x 12 patterned paper pads to organize based on color. Most paper pads have an extra strip of paper at the top that is left when a piece of paper is torn out – similar to the branding strip on single pieces of 12 x 12 paper. The strips of my Maggie Holmes Open Book paper pad were all patterned and absolutely beautiful, I couldn’t get myself to throw them away. So instead, I used them on a layout!
