Under £10 projects - June - #1

After the wonderful success of last month's instalment of the Under £10 project I am very pleased to share with you three new projects for June! You can find the Under £10 kit here if you wish to join in with me.

As you might have guessed from the kit, this month we will focus on how to make the most out of your papers.

For this layout I used the white sheet of card stock and covered it entirely with torn papers from the pad. I only used uncoloured papers for the background so that the coloured paper on which I mounted my photograph would pop out more. Want to save even more money? Well we all have sheets of card stocks on which we made some trials with paint or ink that we don't like or some outdated patterned papers; why not cover those? That way you will save a perfectly fine sheet of blank card stock!

For my journalling I simply decided to use the Alphabet paper that came in the paper pad. It is a great replacement for mini alphas. Also, I decided to stamp my title as I really don't like my own hand writing. If you don't own any alphabet stamp set why not try printing your own title directly on the paper or printing it on some plain white paper to then hand cut it out? It is a great cheap option when you have run out of alphas!
I hope this inspired you!
