Yard Stick Love!

I have been searching for some much needed Project Life organization for my desk.  I am a visual scrapbooker.  If I can see it I am more likely to use it than if it is stored in a drawer or cabinet.  I have been searching my usual flea markets and thrift stores because I love vintage things and just couldn't find anything that fit the bill.  I had seen some trays and such made out of vintage yardsticks on Pinterest and came up with a plan in my mind of what I wanted.  Next I just had to break the news to my husband!  I sketched out what I had in mind and handed it to him along with a pile of Wal-Mart yardsticks.  After giving me a few strange glances he knew resistance would be futile and we headed to the shop.  After many, many, many cuts on the chop saw and lots of wood glue and clamps my little organizer was complete and I was happy.  I added cubbies for the 4x6 and 3x4 cards as well as a long narrow cubby for all of my favorite washi tapes.  There are also small cubbies all along the front edge for all types of small embellishments.  I added some washi along the bottom of the yardstick to cover the Wal-Mart logos.

I hope this inspires you to look for solutions in places you wouldnt normally find them!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Summer has arrived and my family and I are enjoying the warm weather outdoors with a canoe/kayaking trip this past weekend.  The weather and water were perfect and we had a great time.  We are looking forward to weekends on our boat at the lake and our end of summer trip to the beach.  Lots of memories to put into my Project Life binder!!! 

I just finished up with my classes at Scrapbooker's Emporium which will resume in the fall.  I am dreaming up a "White Book" project which I think will be lots of fun.  If you like to play and get messy then this class will be for you!!!

I will try to get some photos of my new Project Life weeks up by the end of the week!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Bo Bunny Design Team Mini

Today I am sharing my latest design team project for Scrapbooker's Emporium using the Bo Bunny Mamarazzi kit. I chose a base of tabbed chipboard pieces and bound it with rings. There are plenty of beautiful papers and stickers included in the kit and I had a lot of supplies left over to use on other projects.  I also used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday along with some of my favorite Studio Calico Wood Veneer shapes.  I stamped the images with Staz On onto transparency film. I find that its easier than stamping onto multiple layers so that the image is clear and not broken by the different papers. 

Thanks for stopping by.
