I am so happy to share my most recent Frugal Scrappin' Project with you all:) As some of you know, I have been teaching Frugal Scrappin' classes at a LLS in Vista, CA. You also probably know that I love EVERYTHING T!m Holtz:)
I have already taught several classes emphasizing all the ways Alchohol Inks and Distress Inks can be used to alter all of your paper crafting projects.
With my current project, the emphasis is on Acrylic Paint Dabbers.
I had a blast creating this mini album and took the first picture before I had totally decided what to "name" the project.
While I was reading the Summer issue of "Scrapbooks and Cards Today" magazine, I saw an idea about documenting "25 Random facts about me". Now we've all seen those "chain" e-mails where you answer predetermined questions about yourself and pass it along to "at least 10 of your favorite people"...I have a confession to make...I normally delete them because I just don't like "chain" e-mails...
The twist to the "25 Random facts about me" is that you get to document ANY facts you want to. What I think is really cool is that the only rule is to not "over think" your list of 25 facts. You are supposed to just jot down anything that comes to mind. I think it's a great way for people to get to know me, not only because of the facts I disclose...but also because of the facts I disclose...because you will most likely disclose the things that mean the most to you in the process (as opposed to answering questions that someone else has decided should be answered).
I'm sure you know where this is going by now...Yes, I've decided to title this mini album "25 Random Facts about ME" as you can see from the close-up of the new and improved front page.
The last thing I wanted to do is give you a little "sneak peak" into one of the "frugal" embellishments we will add to the book in the class. My dear hubby was "tossing" an old pair of dockers shorts when I said...HEY, wait a minute, I can use those for a crafting project:) You may have noticed the "curtain topper" on the cover, well I've also made "flowers", too, as shown below.
More to follow later:)
Thanks for visiting and have a GREAT week!

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:)
