Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Calling all Dads & Grads:)

I am excited to share some awesome Dads & Grads cards I have made for a "Frugal Tips, Tricks, & Techniques" class I will teach at EA on June 11th.

These card turned out sooooo great! Of course, these cards are based on some of my FAVORITE T!m Holtz products....you guessed it...alcohol AND distress inks!!!

I am calling this class "Alcohol & Distress Inks, Part II" and is 3rd in my series of frugal classes I'm teaching at EA.

The technques used in this class are different from those I've taught before, so if anyone took the last classes, these are the perfect compliment to those looking to add even more reasons to why distress inks AND alcohol inks are such "frugal" purchases.

I wanted to showcase some of the cards I am MOST proud of. On this card, I used alcohol inks to "paint" a picture of a beautiful landscape. I can't wait to teach this technique:)
Below is a close-up of the "painting" I made using alcohol inks over glossy cardstock.



This card was made using some glossy paper I found at EA. The squares started out as a "pearl" glossy paper that I "marblized" with several colors of alcohol inks.

Below is a close-up of these "marble tiles".





Enjoy. I'd love to hear your comments:)
