I did take time out to make a couple of things this week. One of them is this Bingo card using one of the images from the "Girlfriends" double sided Creative Scraps, and .......
This amazing new set called SL3 Artsy Banners. There are SO many things you can do with this set to mix it up. You can see on the large scalloped border I added to the bottom of my bingo card.... I stamped the script stamp first on the green paper, and then stamped over it with the large scalloped border stamp, before cutting it out. I then layered in twice.The borders are really easy to line up, so that you can repeat them to make your border whatever length you desire. I have been waiting for a stamp set like this!! Borders, book print, script , music notes.. ah.. what more could I ask for? Woo Hoo! You'll be seeing me use this alot!
Back to my obsession with "Stuff". Sometimes I wonder if part of the reason I love to organize is because It gives me an excuse to sit down and look through my collection of goodies. lol I've talked about this before.. how I love little "do dad" things. Lot of the little things like this.. I leave out on plates or in glass jars.. because just having them "in sight" inspires me to want to create.
These little mixed piles of old and new trinkets, just make me giddy. Of course I find the vintage things super interesting and love to ponder where they came from, ..what dress that button was on, or who wore those crazy ear rings.... but..I love it all .. old and new.
I always wonder if my love of containers of little things, stems from my Aunt Pauline. When I was a little one, and we went to visit them on the farm in the summer, she always has this little peanut butter jar full of "stuff". Random things like, a marble, a army man, a barbie shoe, ect... lol Really, just silly little things like that... and even though I had lots of nice toys at home.. I loved that jar of stuff! I couldn't wait for her to get the jar down off the window ledge and hand it to me, so I could see what little treasure she might have added, since my last visit.
Well.. I don't know if that is why I am the way I am about "little things" but it certainly made an impact on me. lol If given the opportunity, I could sit and dig through these pile of stuff,... all day long and never get tired of it.
She loves little treasures also.
Here it is .. the weekend. Hoping to take a little bit of time to enjoy the sunshine and a glass or two of tea.
Hope your weekend is fantastic!
