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:)

Frugal Sketch 102 Samples

I had so much FUN working on samples for my Frugal Sketch 102 today!  You see, I decided a while back that I wanted to start writing to my grandkids that live in PA...kind of a way to go back in time to when people used to write letters to each other...on paper, WITH A PENCIL no less, lol...

So I decided to use the Frugal Sketch introduced yesterday as my inspiration for these two cards:

For Alayna's card (the top card), I used some new paper and some REALLY OLD stamps!  You see, I've had this pkg of "chick" stamps for AT LEAST 5 years...and haven't even used them yet.  Since my granddaughter just LOVES animals, I knew she would think this chick was cute.

For Jayden, I used a Tim Holtz bike stamp (perfect for a little boy's card).  I also used a REALLY OLD stamp set for the "Superstar kid" sentiment as well as some REALLY OLD paper from my stash.  The birds on Jayden's card are also from a Tim Holtz set.  I first stamped the freshly inked stamp, then stamped a few more times without re-inking the stamp.  I love the way the re-inked birds just look further away.

Please see the post below for the sketch.  If the sketch inspires you, feel free to play along.  I hope to put a new sketch up once every two weeks or so.
