during ICAD this summer i became slightly obsessed with making quilt-like designs out of paper strips. to the point where i actually made up a card class at paper anthology mostly in order that i could keep doing so. it occurs to me that this type of card is the ULTIMATE expression of shopping one's stash, because even the tiniest, skinniest scraps can be used. which doesn't mean you have to save everything, all the time... but if you did happen to have some offcuts that were the last of a favorite paper which is no longer made, this is quite a nice way to use them up. ♥
there are lots more ideas for combining orange and pink over on the SOS blog. you should really head over there and see them!
