Even though we have craft and hobby stores full of different tools and techniques to learn, that doesn't always make them affordable, especially if you just want to use something for a single project. Instead of forking over a fortune for linoleum cutting supplies, Amy opted for something a little more frugal that will take the pressure off first timers. Want to see how these birthday announcements were made?

If you've ever priced out linoleum cutting supplies before you know that each tool and block can really add up. Instead of making a big financial commitment Amy from the aptly named Actualizing Amy, had a different idea.

She turned instead to craft foam and a craft knife to cut the design she was looking for. In this case, it was a camping theme for an upcoming birthday party. The foam was easily inked up with basic water colors and pressed onto the paper. The result? Custom made invitations that would have cost much more using traditional supplies.

Check out more details on this great project over at Actualizing Amy.

Thanks Amy!
