Frugal Scrapbooking tips

Hi my name is Frugal Momma and I am addicted to scrapbooking.

I got into scrap-booking several years back and have been hooked every since. I went to my first Creative Memories party and spent $100. Scrapbooking can be an expensive hobby, but it doesn't have to be. If you know where and what to buy, it doesn't have to break the bank.

Not made of money shared 5 great tips on how be a frugal scrapbooker. Check out those tips.

1. Ebay I haven't done this one yet, but will have the check out the lots.
2. Store Clearance I always hit the clearance section first. Open packages, out of style paper.
3. Gargage Sales- my local scrapbook stores do this. I have gotten some good deals this week on stuff
4. Store coupons Michaels and A.C. Moore each have weekly coupons- they are a great deal. My local store also accepts their coupons on certain items.
5. Dollar Stores Sometimes I can get nice individual layouts for a Dollar! Great deals.

Some more ways to save:
6. Crop with your friends. Someone maybe have the latest tool or stamps out there. We often exchange paper as well.
7. Save your scraps-I keep a lot of little papers left over because I can use them for punchouts, borders etc.
8. Save cards-Christmas cards, birthday cards are perfect for adding to your pages.
9. Save ticket stubs, invitation, etc they make great embellishments

Don't forget there are a lot of sources for freebies on line, too! I like "3 Scrapateers," "Gotta Pixel" and "RAKscraps." Just search for 'free scrapbooking downloads' and you'll be surprised what you find!
