ThriftyTrendsetter is a shop that opened in April of '09 where its owner, Kara, makes really fun altered paper products. I have tried: I don't even know how many times to make things like she does but I just don't have that particular talent. I always love altered books and things and this is a really cool place to find stuff like that.

Also here is her blog:
