Show and Tell Saturday - Frugal Scrapping!

Once upon a time my husband made a comment - "What do you think?  Maybe do you have like $400.00 in scrapbooking supplies in your room?"  And my response was - "Yes.  $400.00 is approximately what I have in supplies."  Little did he know it was closer to $4000 than it was $400.  Right?  Anyone who scraps knows that it can get REALLY pricey.  So with that, I thought that I would share a couple of my money saving tutorials with you.  These are tutorials that I have found online and have tried on my own.  They really do work!!!

1.  Repurpose your Cricut mat with a Zig glue pen! - Repurpose your mat

2.  Handmade Glue dots/pop dots. Here is my post.   I even like to do a little thin line for gluing ribbons!  You can get so many dots and ribbon strips from one bottle of this glue!  Handmade glue dots

3.  Make your own paint daubers - Repurpose Bingo daubers
4.  And lastly - my new fav - make your own alcohol inks! - Alcohol inks


  1. These are awesome tutorials! Can't wait to make my own glue dots!!

  2. They really are a money saver. I can't imagine how many I got out of one bottle of glue - thousands likely!
