    Default Scrapbooking Tips (aka trash to treasure)

    So here is the thread where we all can post our ways to turn "trash" into scrapbooking items, cut costs, save etc.

    Feel free to post any ideas you may have and if you have any links or pics or tutorial/demonstrations thats great as well.

    It's time to get frugal scrapbooking style!!! Lol

    Please remember to remove your siggies!!

    * You can use onion bags/potato bags to add texture to a page. For a look similar to netting, fencing etc

    * Before you throw clothing away take off buttons, pockets, buckles, good sections of fabric, or anything you think you could use.

    Cereal boxes make great backboard for minibooks or chipboard! Emery boards are great for aging pictures and edges for chipboards or other such elements.

    For digi ladies: follow blogs, be a facebook fan, and check in with your favorite designers frequently! I can't tell you how many free or discounted kits I've snagged because I happened to be on facebook when a designer posted a coupon that was good for the first 5 takers - or added my name to a list of comments to win a kit - and won!

    I'm a big fan of those paint strips you can get to decide what shade of colour you want. Everytime Wayne and I go to Walmart we grab a few each of vibrant colours I want to scrap with (they make neat mattes and borders)

    And I don't know many of you have dollar stores near you but ours here have amazing little craft aisles and I get stuff for a buck each that would have cost at least 5 or 6 each in Michael's
