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:)

Two Peas Card Challenges

Two Peas in a Bucket ran a month long event called 30 Days of Stamping & Cardmaking for the month of April.  There was alot of inspiration and tuturials and I wish I had the time to play along every day, but alas, life sometimes gets in the way.

I did, however, get a set of cards done that embraced a few of the challenges throughout the month.  I'm so happy with these cards that I have already sent them out to loved ones.  As part of my "word of the year", CHALLENGE, I am trying to share my love of all things altered by actually sending my cards out.  No longer will I have boxes and boxes of completed projects under my crafting table!

What is the purpose of creating all of these beautiful cards, if I don't plan to share them, right?

So here is the card set I made over the last few weeks (you'll notice you've already seen one of the cards).

I consider these cards a set because I used the same patterned papers on all of them.  On the first card, I used the paper strip technique that is great for using all of those scraps we all have around.  I was able to also use some of the flowers I've had for "years".

The card in the middle is the one I already posted about.  If you scroll down, you will see it in more detail.

The last card I made especially for my friend, Denise.  Denise and I have been friends for YEARS and I don't see her much anymore since we now live almost 3000 miles away from each other.  I do want her to know, though, that I do still CHERISH our friendship. 

On this last card, I used one of my favorite Tim Holtz Alterations Dies and layered my patterned paper similar to the first card, as paper strips...with a twist:)  I also used the CHERISH stamp that I've had for YEARS and never even opened!  (shame on this Frugal Scrapper, lol)  I finished off by using these really cute "typed" letter stickers that Cosmo Cricket makes.  They are soooo much fun and are the PERFECT size for use on cards.
