freebie summer#8: USE what you have!

here is my #1 freebie summer tip for this season!
USE WHAT YOU HAVE!!!!!!
wow, that was original, huh?
let’s recap the last few days in the macias household scrappage.
i went to michaels to get kraft cardstock because i ran out and for some reason i can NOT scrap without it.
….surprise of all surprises, that was all i got!
let me tell you, i was SOOOOO proud of myself.
then i made a quick run to costco to pickup a roll of film that had been in my 35 mm camera since 2009.
the fact that the roll even came out was so exciting that i could barely wait until i could get the chance to sit and scrap some paper.
so here is the product of this morning’s work:

i have a showbox that has all my cardstock scraps in it.
i rummaged thru it and made this page with a collage template that was a freebie from paislee press.
lately i have been using up LOTS of letters.

another page that used up a bunch of stuff. last time i purged and organized i get all my chipboard pieces in one place. i knew that i wanted to add some pattern paper without covering up the large picture. taking a few circles and covering them with paper gave a bit of color and dimension without overwhelming the cool picture. i LOVE this one:)

super old paper is like crack sometimes:)
and little pieces of ribbon + staples:)

on this last page i wanted to make sure it was simple and uncluttered because the pictures are so AWESOME!
i matted the pictures on a piece of white cardstock and then cut the outside edges.
all i added was pattern paper, a letter sticker title and photo corners:)
and that is is for today:)
i hope that yo can use some of these tips:)
