(Margot Potter for Dollar Store Crafts)Dollar Store Crafts today. If you follow me on Facebook you may recall my post about Dollar Store Tourette's Syndrome from last week. Yes, I wandered the aisles of our local dollar store loudly chanting, "It's a dollar! It's a dollar! It's a dollar!" about virtually everything I saw. A foam pumpin? "It's a dollar!" A pack of plastic spiders? "It's a dollar!" A faux tombstone? "It's a dollar!" You can't take me anywhere, really. Yet, my family insists on it.
I was at the Dollar Store gathering materials for a DIY Halloween project using the FAB new Scrapbooking Attitude sheets. This revolutionary printable material allows you to print any image you like on a transfer sheet with an ink jet printer. Then you take that sheer sheet and use a glue stuck to adhere it over textured and patterned papers, wood, cardboard...and make some very cool projects. I scanned some vintage ephemera, added text, sized and printed. Then I made some fun embellishments for grapevine wreaths using the images, some stamped and inked cupcake wrappers and bows for a little Halloween RetrofabOOlosity!

(I was compensated for this project, which is how I pay the bills as a professional designer. All opinions are 100% my own, if I don't like it, I don't recommend it.)
