Using Freebies x

The mid month card challenge over at Scrapology is to make a card using freebies which would other wise sit around gathering dust!
As I don't tend to buy magazines which include free papers or stamps I turned my attention to other freebies that I have trouble throwing away & store ready to be the finishing touch to a page or project.

Firstly a card using clothing tags & a stamped sentiment.

This card was made using the spare buttons that you find inside clothing, sewn into place with contrasting thread. I'll add a sentiment when I come to send it as it would be great for an anniversary, engagement...

I hope you like these examples, hop on over to our blog to see many other freebies in use & details of the prize on offer x

Jot 5

I wonder if you have found this fabulous online FREE magazine for scrapbookers called Jot. It heralds from Australia & has its pages crammed with ideas & inspirarion. Issue 5 has just been released & you can also download the previous issues too.

I was very lucky to get a page in this most recent addition in the Boys section.
This photo was taken of my eldest on his last day at school when his year group staged a prison breakout!! They all bought orange jumpsuits via e bay & using my silhouette to cut a mask I stencilled his t-shirt to finish off his costume.

I cut a second mask so I could stencil the background of this page which I also stamped with days & months using Studio Calico stamps.
The numbers & handcuffs are silhouette cut files.
Hop on over to Jot as you won't be disappointed by their superb e zine x
