Scrapping Cents

I have a new feature for you, and I am betting that you won't be able to resist. Scrapping Cents will cull the internet, and my bag of tricks, for tips and tricks to save you money while you scrap. Using your supplies in new ways, repurposing supplies...even new ways to look at thinks can save you a few bucks. And, who wouldn't love a couple more dollars to spend at the LSS?!

This week, we are looking at the joys of paint chips. Yes, those free little samples you can get at any hardware store. Think of using these as accents on your pages, or as journaling spots. A few lined up would make a great border. But my favorite? Use them in your die cut machine. These would make great little embellishments...or a rocking title with your favorite alphabet dies. Stamp on them, and they can be added to your cards. Stamp and cut out, and they would make great piecings. Or group petals of them to create your own flowers. The possibilities are endless! So, the next time you are at the hardware store, definitely check out the paint department.

If you have ideas you would like to share, tips and tricks that save you money- send 'em in! Who knows- yours might just be featured on Scrapping Cents.
