Proof of my scrapping O.C.D.

i sat down with my little sizzix sidekick and a few small dies and punches. i managed to get these hearts and photo corners out of the leftover negative sheet paper from the country living kit from SU:) it makes my heart HAPPY to use up every last bit of paper!!!
i also had this grid style leftover from a bunch of square diecuts. check out how i used it below.
i used SU kraft cardstock and a few pieces of leftover Garden Tea DSP paper. I adore this color combo and baja breeze is my FAVORITE color right now. i am going to have to stock uo before it retires:)
i used the grid paper as a photo mat block and cut my pictures to fit. since i only had 3 pictures, i decided to used the last block to create a journal square. i pieced leftover scraps and used a photo rounder to create the scallops. i also used a small hole punch to make the eyelet effect on the scallop. 
i used my QK dies and a set of cuttle bug heart dies to finish off the title and embellishments. my love affair with pop up dots continues!
most of this page was made with scraps. MY FAVORITE type of pages to do!!!!

you can TOTALLY get the most bang for your buck when you utilize those little tiny scraps. and it is environment-friendly:)

Cutting out paper scraps looks like a relaxing fun thing to do. And then the results (LO) are so cute!
