It’s probably something you’ve heard before. It’s actually attributed to Shakespeare, but I think it definitely can be said about scrapbook supplies too. The creative people at companies like: My Minds Eye, 7 Gypsies, Tim Holtz and my favorite, October Afternoon, are constantly putting out new temptations. All their beautiful collections eventually find their way to my craft room. Besides the coordinating paper, I think the best part are the accoutrement, the do-dads, the little bits. They take your memory pages from ordinary to extrordinary.
I’m constantly looking for new and creative ways to use up all the leftovers. That’s why I just love Pinterest. It’s a never-ending source of creative idea’s. If you’re not yet addicted, here’s Pinterest 101, “it’s a virtual personal bulletin board that lets you ‘PIN‘ item’s of interest you find any where on the web to your very own board(s). You can then go back to that original site when ever you want, by simply clicking on your ‘PIN‘.
No need to tear up your favorite magezines any more, you’ll just PIN IT.
I recently ‘PINNED‘ a fantastic Art Card idea. You create a three-fold easel, then add some little bits. It’s like a miniature table top collage. Here’s three I recently made for some of my favorite gals.
My favorite one for my favorite Aunt
Shakespeare once wrote,
Orlando: And wilt thou have me?
Rosalind: Ay, and twenty such.
Orlando: What sayest thou?
Rosalind: Are you not good?
Orlando: I hope so.
Rosalind: Why then, can one desire too much of a good thing?
