Tuesday's Tips

Tuesday February 5

I have a few little tips....
1. To use loose sparkles (making memories "scrapbook shimmer" or the generic kind you can get at the dollar store), first spread elmer's glue (the kind you used in school, your kids should have some) where you want and then add the sparkles. It needs to dry thoroughly.

2. The next time you wash your rags try this... before throwing them in the dryer, take a few out to dust with! They are the perfect dampness for dusting and won't streak. Try it on your windows, t.v., monitors, furniture and more. You'll be amazed at how much dusting you can get done in a short time!
3. Use coupons as gift giving! It's a good way to be creative with your paper scraps and loved ones and friends will be thrilled. I received some from my daughters and I just love them. I saw someone had a scrapbook listed on ebay that included coupons for back rubs, dinner out and more. You could offer baby sitting services to a family with a new addition (actually ANY family would appreciate it!!), taking a loved one on a special outing, all sorts of wonderful things. I'm making a couple for my girls right now...

till next Tuesday ~ happy scrapping,
ps; please add anything that you would like!!

I love these tips! Especially the coupon books. I should make some for valentines for my kidos. They would love it.

I gave my girls their coupons and they didn't "get" it ~LOL. "Thanks for the piece of paper Mom..." I have it on video, the youngest (she's six) kept asking who the coupon belongs to and why does it have her name on it and does toys r us keep it ~ it was too funny. The oldest (8) asked if it was for every year! They were too funny. We had a lot of fun with it and they really enjoyed redeeming them!!
