To toss or not to toss
Often I have come across a few things in my travels that I have kept and not tossed in the bin on the chance that I may have some great idea to use it somewhere in my scraping.
On my layout below I did for one of the scrapping with the stars rounds the scallop edge that you can see peeking out from the lace is the packaging from my new set of Fancy Pants stamps. I just couldn't toss it.
Saving that got me thinking about a few other things that could be used and not tossed. Here are a few that I came up with.
-Toy packaging-some of the clear stuff on the front of the boxes can be cut down and they will be great for using as pages for mini clear albums or tags.
-Clothing labels and tags-I have kept a few of some outfits I have brought lately. The ones on the Cotton on Kids clothes are a chipboard thickness and easily altered.
-Bubble wrap and corregated card-often found in packing as protection for the product is great for stamping with and can also be used on your layouts.
I am sure there are a few more ideas out there too.

Great LO Julie. I've been saving my FP wrapper too, they're great scallops :)
