Tidy up those scraps

While I've been trying to use up the scraps to make the cards and tag this week there were still plenty of scraps left over in just one of my scrap boxes (yes I have more than one Chris).  I decided it was time to sort them out.  Now I know there are some people who can throw their scraps away without blinking an eye but for me its very difficult.  This is how the scraps looked early this evening.

After a lot of sorting through them I decided to cut  them into approximately 6 x 4,
7 1/2 x 1 1/2,  2 x 5 3/4 and 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 pieces.  This makes them workable sizes for me to still make cards, use as borders or as journalling blocks.  I also sorted out all the pieces of neutral cardstock which can be used either for stamping images or sentiments on.  I found quite a few cut aparts from my Graphic 45 papers which had been thrown in there too.  All those workable scraps are now neatly placed in two much smaller boxes.  I still have a couple of other scrap piles to sort but its a start.

Here's the pile to be thrown away.

Feeling quite proud of myself for letting so much go.
