Thrifty Thursday 3-5-09

Here’s a blast from the past.  This was the first Scrapbook page I made as a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator.  I used one of our Simply Scrapin’®Kits.  I don’t think there is anything (besides paper and inks) that is still available. 

campI really love the Simply Scrapin’ Kitsbecause they make scrapbooking fast and easy.  They come with the stickers, DSP and Cardstock add a few stamps and accessories and you are good to go. 

This page really works for Thrifty Thursday because it uses the Stampin’ Pastels® to achieve all the great colors.  The chalks are a very economical way to get our wonderful colors.  This is a simple technique called poppin’ pastels.  It’s actually really easy.  All you do is stamp your image using the VersaMark® ink and the apply the chalk.  The best way to apply the chalk is with our wonderful sponge daubers. 

If you’ve never tried this technique before I encourage you to give it a try.  If it’s been a while then it’s a great time to remember it.  Here is a list of supplies you will need:
 105542 Stampn’ Pastels $24.95
102283 VersaMark Pad $7.50
102892 Sponge Daubers (12) $10.95
