I admit it---I am the queen of cheap. When I go to a crafting store, the first place I head toward is the clearance table. But FREE is better, so whether I’m actively aware of it or not, I look at the world with a scrapper’s pair of eyes.
If we go out to lunch together, you may see a tasty sandwich on the menu---I see a border for a vacation layout…and don’t forget those paper napkin rings!
When my family went to German Fest, my dear hubby headed for the BierGarten---I headed to the information booth, where I received a bag of freebies which included a German newspaper. I knew it would make a cool frame for our photos.
Got photos that just don’t seem to work on a page? Use a piece of scenic patterned paper and cut the photos out and make your own collage page, or cut people out of a crowd and circle punch them and spread them around a layout as embellishments.
Take a close look at the following pages. Each one uses something recycled or given away free to frame out a photo or journaling. Postcards, coasters, playbills, and so on... The world is full of unique ways to frame photos, journal your memories and make your pages your own!
