I bought a box of transparencies over a year ago and what a great purchase. I still have TONS left and I have gotten so much use out of them. Punching shapes or cutting them out. Stamping images with Stazon ink! You remember my butterflies :) Well, here is another way that I use transparencies on my layouts.

It is almost too simple to make a video for but I hope watching it gave you some inspiration at least! Maybe you are inspired enough to go out and buy some transparencies???. Here are the ones that I found on Ebay for about $10 US.

Here is the finished bubble page!

Here is a layout where I have used this technique to make a frame for a picture. You could frame journaling too, or any other important element on your page!

And here is one where I cut out clouds to use on my layout.

Tissue paper is a fabulous and cheap product to have in your scrapcrafting supply! 
This weeks video is a tutorial on a tissue paper butterfly and flower :) 

Here are the final products!
You can of course make these smaller 
for your papercrafting needs.

This layout was inspired by a layout I saw at
Lately I have been doing some of the ideas from my 
inspiration journal and it has been rewarding for sure!

Last Weeks Ruffle
Here is a journaling idea I finally tried where 
I did my writing right on the chipboard letter in 
my title. Another idea I found at
You will notice the ruffle from last weeks video!
The arrow is supposed to point at the words "Treasure Map."

For my Canadian friends! Look for buttons at Dollarama!
They can be very expensive at scrapbook stores but you can get a cute little package (enough to fill my spice jar at least) for $1 at the dollar store and they are all different sizes with a few unique ones hidden in there too.

Who needs to buy borders and punches when you can make ruffles!! Well, it is nice to mix it up a bit but the ruffles I'm about to show you are the cheapest way to go...and you know my love of inexpensive embellishments! Here are the three ways I do them. 
1. Paper

2. Ribbon

3. Streamers
You can hardly see it here because is it white and layered 
with a paper border done with my border punch.

I love to use my sewing machine but if you don't have one a ruffle can still be achieved with fast drying glue or permanent glue runners. Here is a video showing exactly how they are each made!

Here are some of the pics I promised of my layout using the paper ruffle.

Have fun making RUFFLES!
