Frugal Friday #1

Hello everyone!
Welcome to Frugal Friday Challenge #1! 
*If you would like to see my other posts this week, please scroll down*

The idea of my little challenge is to get you all to use up those tiny little bits that are lying all over your desk, instead of chucking them in the bin! 
Each Friday in May I will start a new linky and each week I will choose a top 3. Then on 7th June I will choose a winner who will receive a little prize from me!

Remember the photo of scraps from yesterday's blog post? Well here is what I did with some of it...

This is created using only scraps from my desk with no extra stamping or punching other than the sentiment, and only a Candy Dot for added embellishment.

I'm quite chuffed that I used up so many bits...these could just as easily have ended up in the bin...what a waste that would have been! I sent this to a friend who is feeling a bit 'under it' at the moment. Hope you feel better soon hun :)

I'm also entering my card into the challenge at CAS-ual Friday this week where the theme is Three Thirds. I have used a 3 word sentiment and used only 1 third of my card.
CFC131: Three Thirds? The idea is to use three of something, could be colors, sequins, etc
on just 1/3 of the card, and keep it clean and simple.

Do you have scraps lying around your desk? Ok...well why not show me what you've made with yours? Blog a picture of the bits lying on your desk and then your completed card, or 3D item...whatever you choose, and link your project in the linky below for us all to see. 

This is my first Frugal Friday and I'd love you to join in...who knows, it might helps you get desk looking a little clearer!

Have a lovely Frugal Friday!

  9. hi Lizy - what a really brilliant idea.. wish I had read your blog before having a clear up! - but on 2nd thoughts I would have just been far too embarrassed to take a before picture of my desk- that's probably a secret best kept with me am thinking - 'mess;' - that doesn't begin to descrbe the half of it.. will keep this in mind for next Friday tho'!
