Budget-friendly flowers

Here's a two-page layout that I created for a Creating Keepsakes "Budget Tips" article about using everyday items to create page accents. 

As seen in the Creating Keepsakes' Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Fabulous Flowers, 2011.  Copyright Creative Crafts Group.  Posted with prior permission from the publisher.

I created the flowers using ink-colored cupcake liners for the petals, a glittered metal washer for a glammed up center, and alcohol ink-stained leaves that I cut from a coffee can lid. 

Take a look around your house and see what items you can find to create some fun accents!

What a great reuse of items! Turned out great. I'll be giving that a try with the cupcake liners, washers & glitter! Can't pass it up. Too cool.

What an amazing page! I just love those crochet touches, I'm did it also in some layouts, but t takes me so much time :):) Youre probably so much patience than me :)

I got here through Dafi's blog, and after a brief scan of your blog (the dictionary found the phrase - " cursory glance"), I really like your work!
I'm following you on google-reader, and just waiting to see some more of your great work :):)
