Scrapping Cents

This week, let's peek into the world of 'digi'. No, I am not a digi-scrapper- but there are tricks and values to be had for paper scrappers, too! First, print out large fonts to hand cut,you save on stickers. You can even cut through thin chipboard like cereal boxes. Fonts for free...gotta love that! Next, check out digi scrapping kits for anything you can print: flourishes on transparencies, word art, etc. Printing out your own journal tags lets you choose the paper- how custom is that! Printed on vellum, they look like the sheers that are so trendy! Here is a free download from A Million Memories and Karen Grunberg of Creative Therapy to get you started. (Many, many thanks, as these are simply wonderful!!) Finally, check out coloring page sites such as Coloring they have images for most occasions- and printed at 20-25% size, they make perfect 'stamps' ready to color and add to your cards.
