Notes to self 8/31

I had an idea this morning while shopping on scrapbook.com.

Bling up buttons. I could glitter them, maybe emboss them ( if they don’t melt) and glimmer mist them!

Things I’m thinking about doing…

I have a LOT of ribbon, that is like shoestring material, I don’t know what its called…but I’ve no idea what to do with it. It might be good to glue tiny buttons or smallish beads to it.  I may also try spritzing it with glimmer mist and see how that looks. Need more ideas…I have LOTS of it.

Saw an idea on Jenn Dove’s Blog for something to do with the Large buttons in my button jar. She glued a cute bow on top of them.

How about some scrap stuff?

I just got back from a scrapping retreat with my best scrap pals, and guess what? I didn’t create a single scrap page! I worked on some projects ( that I have yet to photograph), just no pages.

I have made it into my scrap studio since I’ve been ( once I caught up on my retreat lock of sleep, which only took 4 days). I’ve actually taken photos of several recent ( and found photos of some not so recent projects). So let’s see if I can do some scrap blogging!

I was still reliving the weekend retreat memories when I pulled out these photos of my scrap space in our first camper. If you have supplies you can scrap anywhere! 20100820_9 Love those white felt Thickers. Wish I had an unlimited supply!

20100820_11This tag, though simple, is special for three reasons. One, the tag itself was a RAK from one of my Columbus Scrapper Friends. Two, because the butterflies are from a Fiskars punch that my AMAZING Retreat Secret Sister gave to me. Finally, because even though the tag was a sweet,bright, pastel yellow, my beloved Tim Holtz distress inks allowed me to mellow it out exactly how I needed it to be! 

That reminds me, that all the flowers were also a RAK from a CS Scrapper as well. I am a lucky girl to be part of such a rocking group!

Keep On Scrappin’

Astounding me today is…

Becca, of Amazing Paper Grace  is beyond talented. She makes the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. Here’s a note to self on the  card she made today: She made this with Heart shapes. She used a new Spellbinders' die,  but I think I could make this with my own heart shapes from the Cricut. 

But it won’t be today, today I am off to the grocery to buy blueberries to satisfy my frozen blueberry craving, and dinner stuff to grill the fresh Lake Erie walleye given to us by friends we play cards with.  YUM! Then, with a little luck, I can escape to the craft room and organize all the new goodies I bought yesterday! Have to wrap some of them up for my retreat secret sister! ( I love one for you and one for me shopping!

I should really take some photos and post some of the things I’ve been making, but I never find time for that! Gheesh!
