In the process of cleaning my workroom, which I seem to be constantly starting but never finishing, I came across a bag of fabric scraps from ages ago when I was making yoyos. I hate to throw things away, but I am trying to adopt an attitude of use it or toss it…I am guilty of pre-meditated scrap hoard! However, if one chooses to face their addiction, the occasional paper project might give one the justification needed to NOT completely purge the little, lingering bits of this and that…which is what I just did! The red wool piece is actually not a scrap…I think I might be able to make a few thousand hearts from the piece I have! I love the background kraft-colored tags – so neutral but nice! The big flower behind the heart was leftover from a project. I love the decorative pin! On occasion, I miss-cut a piece of lace or ribbon. Can’t throw those scraps away – it was the perfect length for this tag! What a deal – a few random scraps got used right up. Oh, if only all my the scraps were so small and usable! Now, in case you were wondering what the heck you would do with these… They make a nice touch of color to a wrapped gift, a note on a plate of cookies, and a layout or a card.

At CHA this January, I wandered into the Little Yellow Bicycle booth and caught a glimpse of their new line, Paradise…loved it! Then I got my hands on some…love it even more! Love the colors, love the texture and I really love the flower. It is always fun to have new product to play with, and I love the embellishments that are part of the Paradise line-up. I know how to make a pleated flower from scratch, but it is so easy to make one using LYB Paper Flower Kit, like the one on the above card. I also really like the embossed stickers, especially the words that are great to use on cards and layouts. Then of course, I needed to make my own flower that goes along with the line! I really do love the flower! There are some really cute chipboard die-cuts that I have around here somewhere, but I am getting ready for a scrapbooking garage sale and I seem to have misplaced them. I have layouts that are almost done…will post those another day!
Valentine's Day is coming and I'm not letting any moss grow under my seat!
Love is in the air...and has me "hooked"!
Oh what fun it is to work with October Afternoon's Holiday Style product line!
Make spectacular snowflake tags by adding some chunky glitter to punched snowflakes!
It's December 1st...let the "easy" craziness begin!
A little project...bring it on! Or maybe it would be better to say "just do it!"
October is here and it time to prepare...the end (of the month) is near...er than you think. Don't be caught in the "web" unaware and out of luck.
Not your ordinary store-bought box of Valentine's!
