{Starbucks & Scrapbooking}

No, I'm not talking about the amount of coffee you need to drink to stay up late and scrap;) I'm talking about the FREE scrapbooking supplies that Starbucks has! Yes, you read that right... Starbucks has Scrapbooking supplies. Well, you do need to think outside of the box a little. Let me show you!

While I was waiting on my Pumpkin Spice Latte I saw this little gem out of the corner of my eye. I loved the bronze and black combo and decided to pick it up. It was just a little brochure, but I loved the colors and the little coffee cup on front. It was free so I took it! It's a little bigger than 3x4 so I cut it down to size and used my corner rounder. I added a sticker from the Finnley collection and now I have a very cute homemade Project Life card!! 

After finding that little card I started to look around! I wanted more free supplies:) Next I looked at my coffee cup. Mmmmm What is that little sleeve made of? ah yes! Corrugated paper!! Now, not everyone uses corrugated paper for scrapbooking, but I loved it! The texture and color are wonderful. I took it home and just starred at it for awhile. How could I use this? Then I saw my butterfly punch sitting there and wondered if it could cut through this! Well, it did and I'm so happy about it! It took a little muscle, but I got a perfect cut. I added some gems on one set of butterflies and enamel dots on the other. I can't wait to use them!
