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:)

Just for fun...

I hadn't really planned to work on a project today...thought I would just relax and take the day off...but then I started to "play" {huge grin here}...
I had made a few tattered floral die cuts for a project I was going to work on, but ditched, so the tattered florals were just sitting in a bin.  Next to that was a box of tags  received a few days ago from Staples.  Along side of that is some corrugated cardboard and a 12 x 12 canvas I had painted a pale aqua a while back.  I pulled out a few of my favorite supplies and came up with this:
I just love all of the dimension in this canvas.
Supplies I used:
Dylusions Sprays
Inka Gold
Silks Paints
Modeling Cream
Pitt Artist Pen
Corrugated Cardboard
Tattered Florals (grunge paper covered with aluminum foil and embossed)
Mod Podge

A New Tim's Tags of 2013!

I'm so excited to announce that we are READY for the March tags at Ever After's Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Ever After Style!
The tags that can be made this month are SOOOOO COOL, that I've decided to run this month's challenge through the 14th of April!!!  Yahoo!!!  You have two extra days to get your tags into Ever After in order to qualify for a discount coupon AND a chance to win a prize!
I loved Tim's version of the March tag that I decided to follow very closely to what he did on his blog here, that I decided to make my tag very similar.  The only difference is that I covered my lable die cut with picket fence distress stain, then ran the label die cut through Tim's brick wall embossing folder for a bit more texture.  Then I brushed some Tea Die distress ink over the tag very lightly.
The colors of distress stain that I used on the crinkle ribbon were dried marigold and evergreen bough.  Also the color of alcohol inks I used on the tinsel were sunset orange and clover.
My "hoppy easter" is from a VERY OLD set of wood alphabet stamps.
I also had some fun making the new sign for Ever After this month.  I used some of the photoshop tools I learned a few years back and was so impressed that I remembered how to use them! 
Woot woot!
Oh, and I almost forgot!!!!  Our winner for the February contest is Ann Lovick!!!  Congratulations, Ann!  You have won two bottles of distress stains, perfect for use on your March tag:)
