Don't throw your scraps away. Organize them into a photo box, by color. I labeled my tabs, Black, Blue, Brown, Gray, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, "Sparkle", Turquoise, White and Yellow. I put plan paper in the front and patterned paper behind the plain within each tab. If you have a Cricut or a Silhouette then you will always have them at hand to cut your favorite images. Enjoy.
