Creating Keepsakes Special Issue- Budget-Friendly Scrapbooking













{Reported by Ashley Harris}




Happy Friday everyone!!  When I opened this lovely special issue from Creating Keepsakes there were so many great things my mind just went into overdrive.  I was marking pages of things I wanted to do and create and it was so much fun.  Such inspiration.  My favorite chapter was #4.  Stretch your supplies.   I so need to do this as I have a ton of stuff.   Well here is what I made with using this chapter as my guide.



As you can see I stretched my scraps.  I used the Amy Tangerine collection from my recent article and finished this layout in less than 10 minutes.  So not only did I save money, I saved time!  YAY!

Here is the information about the issue:

That's my kind of issue. I have a 14 month old son who demands a lot of my attention. A layout in 10 mins. I'm there!

I know the giveaway is now over, but I think I need to go buy this issue...your LO is awesome (and looove that pic!)! Sometimes when you have too many goodies I can't make up my mind, so I think this mag will give me the motivation to just 'do it'! Thanks for the inspiration!
