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:)

Playing with Alcohol Inks

I finally got a chance to finish and photograph the mini book for my next Frugal Scrapbooking class at EA. For more information on this class, check here.

This is the perfect opportunity to get some "hands on" experience using this awesome product. Many of my techniques have been taken directly from the king of alcohol inks himself...you know it, it's Tim Holtz!

I've also been fortunate to be surrounded by some pretty awesome scrapping buddies, too, and you will find one of the techniques used in this class is a frugal idea that I got from none other than Gloria, who's Scraps of Life blog is awesome!! Gloria is also the cuttlebug expert over at Cropstop.com. Her technique (used on the back cover of this project) was the perfect "bonus" ending to my alcohol inks class.

Without further adieu, pictured below is the sample for my class. I have decided to give a short description of the techniques on each page. This book is the perfect way to jot down the in's and out's of each technique so you can try it on your own with ease.








Enjoy and thanks for stopping by:)

As always, scrap responsibly and go green as often as you can...it's both economical AND it saves our earth:)
