Big thanks to everyone who shared their projects this month; I was thoroughly inspired by all of them and I hope you were, too. If you made something for Scraptember that I somehow missed, please let me know and I’ll do a follow-up post.

And!! If you still feel like you have an excess of scraps – who doesn’t? – please carry on the festivities of Scraptember into the rest of the year!
