Budget Scrapbooking

I am a frugal scrapper, always have been. Probably just because I am a frugal person in general, I'm always looking for ways to save money by making it myself. I love to create my own hand made embellishments, it gives you a sense of completion as well as having a one-of-a-kind accent for your scrapbooks. I don't want my pages to look like everyone elses. This month, my S.S.Reflections article focuses on a few ideas to help you save money: making your own chipboard accents, recycling: postcards, decorative accents and clothing tags, and finding inexpensive fabric flowers.
Currently, this is the NOV 06 article.
After November you will find it here in the archives.
Here is a layout from the article that uses rubberstamps to help mask photo backgrounds, uses custom made chipboard accents and a recycled Burger King crown and bicycle reflectors!
