Every now and then my studio gets absolutely chaotic- usually when I have too many reviews in too short of a time frame and my kids are home so I’m easily distracted with mommy duties. These past few weeks- really since we got home from our family reunion at the end of June- the kids have been underfoot and my studio has hit Defcon 4.
So what’s a crafty gal to do?
Make something with the frags, of course! I was in the process of cleaning things up, and they started to jell in my mind. I’m SUCH a visual synthesizer- someone who needs to SEE the items in order to design with them. So anyway, I got good and distracted for about an hour and made this little handmade book.
Most of the items I used came from samples from recent reviews, including:
- Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Embossing folder
- Vintaj Pantinas
- Mod Podgable Acrylic Shapes and Papers
I also used quite a few “old” scrapbooking papers from my stash- probably all more than 5 years old- but it was easy to use them up for the pages. (I used a Spellbinders Grand Templates Creative Book Pages One and Two by Donna Salazar) I also used my Cinch to bind it all.
Here’s a little video tour so you can see some of the details.
