                                  To be so honest...I use alot of scraps . I recycle where and when I can. I love the idea of helping the environment but truthfully that's not why I do it . A few years ago my husband lost his job...boy it was a great job to...I gotted knocked off my pedestal quick and let me tell ya I hit hard. I made a decision right then and there ,as I watched my friends carry groceries into my home, I would never again be at that point. I would be a better keeper of my home. I would be a better wife and mother. I studied Proverbs 31 .I started running my home like a small business.I cut corners everywhere I could. I used to "buy" everything but now If I can make it... I do.... It helped so much . That's where card making comes in. I LOVE to do it and it saves money to. Here's how I use some scraps and save on postage also...
                
              
I bought the post card stamp using a 40% off coupon . So it ended up costing like 5 bucks or so. AND it's all made with scraps.I hope this idea helps you save money as well as use up some of those scraps. I hope you like it.
