As a scrapbooker, it's true that if you use traditional supplies and you love that heavy weight of paper you feel a little guilty having the leftovers. What to do? Well, I would encourage you to do what my friend, Katey and I are doing this weekend. We are getting together and using up our scraps to make cards. What's even better is that I am planning to put together reusable cards. All you have to do is make the card and then on the inside add a flap on the inside of the card that works much a like a frame. Then people can insert their own words and signature and then the next person can do the same. It's a great way to recycle and it's fun to pass along to your friends.
Another way to be more environmentally friendly as a scrapper is to try out digital scrapbooking. I actually do both traditional and digital and find that it gives me enough variety to really keep my creative mojo flowing. I know how intimidating it can be in the beginning, but there are tons of free lessons and classes out there that you can take to find your way through the process. So check it out!
On a separate note, my LSS - The Scrapbook Page has asked me to join their design team starting in May. I'm so excited to be part of their team and to get started - I've been doing so much stuff on line, that it will be fun to get more involved with the local talent and to help inspire others. Can't wait to get started!
Have a great Earth Day everyone and I'll see you on the flipside!
