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:)

Another Great Frosted Designs Challenge...and EA Class:)

I am having SO much fun being part of the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday design team!  They have another great project (that is near and dear to my "frugal" heart, hee hee).  This week's Fabulous Friday challenge is to recycle/upcycle something and use it in a project.

Since I'm also creating a project for an upcoming class at Ever After Scrapbooks, I thought I'd try to incorporate the FD challenge into my project...after all, my EA students are used to my "frugal" side, so why not continue this trend, right?

Here is the project for my upcoming EA class (to be held on April 29th)...just in time for Mother's Day gift giving!

Now, before you ask...hey, where is the "recycle/upcycle" in this project....well, take a closer look at the embellishments below...



All of these items...yes...the bird, heart AND fun are all made with my sizzix AND the packaging from the printer's tray!

Also made using the cardboard packaging from the printer's tray is the other words (mom and Jake) as well as the post for the clock and the key hole:)

Feel free to hop on over to the Frosted Designs blog and participate in this fun and "green" challenge:)

Supplies:
Printer's Tray - 7 Gypsies
Patterned Paper - Graphic 45 Curiosity Shoppe
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Photos - my dear friend Robin's son, Jake
Diecuts - Various Sizzix diecuts
Beads, wire, brads - from my stash
