Good morning to Julia and the whole WOYWW crowd. Here’s an on-my-tiptoes shot of the studio today.
There, along with the scraps from the last layout I completed you can see lots of stuff that’s been sitting there since National Scrapbook Day last weekend. I didn’t get much scrapping done, but I did round up a bunch of inspiration on that day. There are free printables and numerous sketches that I hope to use soon, as well as a sheet of card ideas taken from a Creating Keepsakes display board last month. I have more than enough ideas, now I just need to prioritize them. Also from last month, you see a couple of fishing pictures from the guys’ fishing trip the week after the girls’ scrapping trip.
There is a Simple Stories DIY grab bag from steals.com there on the right that I have an idea to use for a mini-album (unless I change my mind, as I am known to change my mind). Up in the top left corner you see an empty liquor container. I kept 2 of these wooden containers that the hubby received as gifts on his retirement – and yes, he has taken charge of the contents. I think they will be good for either journal tags or washi tape holders. I will let you know.
I was pretty good on NSD and only made one online purchase. I’ll reveal that when it comes. But I want a little credit for all the things I did not buy, although you have to wonder if I had not been going to my MIL’s for the weekend, would I have succumbed to more. Well, yeah, without a doubt.
And these would have been on the top of the list:
The current kit and acrylic elements from Elle’s Studio.
Anything from Close to My Heart to get this paper free – including passing up that stamp set.
This Wildflower – Sketchbook paper by We R Memory Keepers that is back in stock
The Fancy Pants card kits that were on sale; or the grab bags, make that boxes, that I found when I got to their site.
Would you have succumbed to any of those temptations? Or maybe there are others you care to tell me about?
That’s all from me today – I need to scoot along, as I have an appointment to get my car serviced today. I’ll pop around to at least half of the joiners at WOYWW, later tonight. Happy crafting until then.
