Scrapbooking from the Thrift Store with VIDEO.

My name is Andrea,  and I'm a THRIFT STORE JUNKIE.  It's taken a long time to admit this out loud.  The truth is, the thrift store calls my name.  It says ( in a spooky voice) , "Andrea, come to me.  I have beautiful, unique treasures that you can hoard in your home.  Some are sparkly, and some are dingy, but you NEED them.  You NEEEEEEED THEM!"

Seriously......whats wrong with me?  Actually, do you know what?  I don't care whats wrong with me, thrift stores are AWESOME-SAUCE!

I rarely find scrapbooking items from my local thrift store. But when I do, I add it to my stash and forget that I bought it.  A fews days ago I hit the Jackpot.   I found like 100 sheets of 12x12 scrapbook paper.  I had to pinch myself.  I mean it wasn't designer paper or anything (Im also a designer paper junkie) but I liked most of the patterns, so I bought all of it for $1!   What?

On my drive home, when I do most of my important thinking, I was brainstorming how I could use my thrift store finds to create a Youtube series. It suddenly came to me.....


In my new Youtube Series,  I make scrapbook layouts from my Thrift Store Kit.  My kit is limited to only items from the Thrift Store.  What I think is cool about this is that it will really push the limits of my creativity.  I'm kind of in a slump and I need to light my creative flame again.

Here's my THRIFT STORE KIT Share:


Do you use thrift store items in your crafting?
