I always save any and all paper strip edges until I'm 100% sure I'm done with a kit and this is the reason. Becky has made all the random bits look so nice mixed together. And notice how punched, pinked, and torn edges just add to the charm.
How is this for a clever idea for stretching your resources? The exclusive die cut houses were ever so popular. I know I am tempted to hoard mine. Jill has used hers as a template to make more of the little cuties. Just trace and cut one out out of scrap paper then layer some of your leftover scrap bits over it. Sweet!
