Using household items on your layouts by Kimmarie
Kimmarie's Frugal Friday Tip is to find non scrap related products around the house to use on your layouts.
Her first layout, Adorable, uses washers from her husband's work room. She adhered the washers to the tags with glue dots and then tied ribbon through them. She feels it adds a little edginess to the soft colors.
On her second layout, Happy Birthday, she used a bottle cap. She smashed the bottle cap and topped it off with a letter "E" for Emma and the number 2 for her age. She states she has actually used bottle caps on a few different layouts and people usually show a good reaction to them and they are fun to work with.
For her third layout, Miss Independent, she wanted to do a journaling block behind her daughter's picture, so she decided to make the picture flip down.
She used a suspender clip instead of a basic scrapbooking clip to help fold the picture down. She just clipped it on to the picture and tied on some ribbon.
