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:)

Fabulous Friday FD Challenge

Good morning fellow crafters!  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!  Here is So Cal, it is sometimes hard to realize it is the holiday season since the weather is still so warm!  I've been living in Sunny So Cal for almost 8 years now and still LOVE the mild weather, but do miss those "white" holidays of years past when I was in the North East.

I am definitely in the holiday spirit when it comes to crafting, though:)  I have small project to share today:

I used some of my favorite Christmas paper this year from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage line.  I added a really cute reindeer stamp from one of my Dylusions stamp sets, some sentiments from a Unity Stamp Set, a scalloped edge made with a TH die, some ribbon, and 5 buttons (yes, using at LEAST 5 buttons is our challenge this week at Frosted Designs).
I stamped my reindeer 3 times. Once each on red, beige, and brown paper.  I fussy cut the brown and beige papers and cut the nose out of the red paper.  You may notice a bit of texture on the antlers...I used some vintage photo distress embossing powder to add texture without too much shine.  I just LOVE the way the antlers turned out!  A little bit of stickles on the nose, and "Rudolph" is ready to wish everyone Season's Greetings!

Now, go on and crack open some of your "old" favorite supplies, mix them with a few of your new supplies and whip us up a great project using at least 5 buttons.  Hop on over and share it with us all over at Frosted Designs:)
Happy Creating!
