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:)

Frosted Designs - Weather:)

Now, I have to say, I really wanted to get creative and create something really cool using our "weather" theme this week over at the Frosted Designs know, snow, sleet, rain, and clouds can make for some really COOL creations...but ALAS, I thought back on the reason I first moved to SUNNY California, AND the WEATHER I LOVE MOST...and just had to go with it...sometimes a frugal scrapper's just gotta do what a frugal scrapper's gotta do, ya know?

In addition to my LOVE of all things SUNSHINE, I had some AWESOME stamps I just bought over at Ever After Scrapbooks.  These are Technique Tuesday stamps, and I can't say enough about how crisp and clean they are.  I also had the chance to use them on some really awesome new specialty stamping paper by Inkssentials that I also purchased over at Ever After.

Also using some of my favorite Graphic 45 paper, I completed the following card:

I really don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of this AWESOME Graphic 45 paper pack...I feel a hoarding moment coming on, lol...the good news is that G45, as I fondly call them never ceases to AMAZE me with their paper lines:)  So with that in mind, I also look forward to future themes:)

Oh, and in true frugal fashion, I chose to make the pp be the star of this card...I even made my "embellishments" out of this paper.  Of course, the Technique Tuesday stamps are the perfect finish for this oh so inspirational card.
