Frugal Scrapping

Super Eight...Jillibean's Summer Cards
So, one day I'm in need of a summer themed birthday card.  I know I have a couple sheets of Jillibean Soup's Watermelon Gazpacho patterned paper, which I simply adore for its fresh, cheerful colors and images.  I whip up a simple card in, literally, minutes and think to myself, "I wonder how many cards I can make with these two sheets of paper?"

Answer: 8

The First
With just two sheets of Jillibean Soup patterned paper, one sheet of coordinating die-cuts and Bazzill cardstock to use as the card bases, I was able to create eight uber-adorable greeting cards!  And, I even have a few die-cuts leftover.  I used Sophie's Sentiments from Lawn Fawn, The Twinery's baker's twine, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, a few tiny pearls on the butterfly bodies.

Just for fun...
For giggles I created some more birthday cards, a thank you card, a BBQ invitation, and several just-for-fun cards, too!

Give it a try...take just a few supplies and be creative!  Don't you love a challenge?!  Leave a comment with a link to your blog and show off your frugal scrapping -- ENJOY!
