Scraps Blog Hop - Day 1

Hi and Welcome to Day 1, STOP# 10 of the Scraps Blog Hop!

You are in for an amazing line up!  If you came from Lisa's blog: http://bitbythecricutbug.blogs​pot.com/, you are hopping in the right direction.  If you just popped by on my blog, you really should start from the beginning of the hop and be sure to leave comments along the way to qualify for some amazing blog candy!  Our fabulous hostess, Jennifer (http://craftcardgallery.blogspot.com) came up with a great hop and some great prizes.  Also some of us bloggers have "blog candy," too..so you have chances to win even more stuff....so read on and hop along for inspiration and fun!!

If you use a Cricut like I do, then you have scraps.  It just comes with the territory...
About a month or so ago, I became extremely frustrated with the state of my crap scrap pile... I found I wasted more paper, because I just didn't want to sift through the stash to find the color that I needed.
My solution:  Sort scraps by color and put them into a deco-file (Mine is from Creative Memories).  It took me a couple hours, but it was well worth it!  Easy to maintain, saves me time, money, and frustration!
The timing for this blog hop was perfect, because now that my scraps were organized...I just needed some motivation to use up some of my scraps!  Well once I started...it was hard to stop....
From scraps...
 To a cool hula card for my niece who is at camp...
 From scraps...
 To a thank card for my neighbor...
From scraps...
 To a card for a friend going through a rough time...
 One day a couple months ago, I found a YouTube video on a "Peek-a-Boo" card.  It was so cute that I decided to make one for my nephew-in-laws wedding....You can use it for any type of card!
 Using tons of my scraps and embellishments that were just sitting around, I created probably the cutest card I've ever made...using the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge.
I love the 3D effect of the card, how it can stand up on it's own, and the interactive feature...The bride and groom stand close to each other, but then you pull the sides out...My sweet daughter wanted to show all of you how it works....
Have fun!!!!

Ok, now to the fun stuff...BLOG CANDY!

I have THREE prizes for THREE lucky winners (these are in addition to the awesome prizes Jennifer and other bloggers may have lined up!!):
For intricate cuts, nothing beats CutterBee scissors...I use mine all the time, and now you can, too!

A brand new Creative Memories Deco File...just like the one I used to sort my scraps!
$10 Michael's Gift Card

I will be posting on both days of the hop (Saturday and Sunday).  To qualify for these 3 prizes, please visit my posts on both days, become a follower, and leave me comments on both posts with a way to contact you if you win.  I will use Random.org to choose the winners.  If you are one of many frustrated bloggers, who cannot seem to leave comments..please send me an email (tuttletime_cm at yahoo dot com).  I'll add your comment (based on the time of your email) to the list of comments here.  :)

Please be sure to follow the rules to the other blogs to qualify for their prizes.  Be sure to visit all the blogs & leave comments, as there will be a grand prize, a $50 credit to the Designs on Cloud 9 store, http://www.designsoncloud9.com​/ sponsored by Michelle of Designs on Cloud 9. To win the grand prize, you must comment on and become a follower of all the blogs.

Love the cards. I go back and forth with how I organize my scraps. I think I actually prefer to put them in a large container and dig through them.
