What better way to get cute patterned paper for your layout - then for free from a magazine ad. I loved this paper kit that was advertised in a Hobby Lobby Scrapbooking magazine. So, I just cut all the pieces out in squares, rounded the corners, inked them - and I had my page. Even the mat behind the photo and the photo turn are cut from the ad.
I actually liked this paper so much - that I ended up buying the package.
What can you make from a magazine ad? We'd love for you to share it with us.
