I learned about these from one of my all-time favourite crafters, Paula Whittaker. You can see her wonderful work on her blog, Cardcraft Creations, and see her definition of 'scraplings' from her challenge a little while ago on the Daring Cardmakers challenge blog. It's a really useful way of using up your scraps!
(Haven't seen you blog for a while, Paula.. I hope you're OK. Was happy to receive your comment here recently. Happy New Year to you, talented lady.)
This one wasn't intended to be used this way. I was just using the scrap to punch snowflakes, and just liked the random shapes it left, and - well - you know how the process works!
It works, doesn't it?
