"spring" cleaning

i dont have pics to share today, but i did want to let you guys in on some info i got from a magazine article.

you know how i've been on this crazy mini album craze? it felt like i crankin um out every week! well much to my dismay, over the weekend, i felt myself slip into a slump! out of nowhere, i hadnt any ideas or drive to make stuff, not even a single page!

(heres a little background info) when i work on a project, i gather all the paper & embellishments i want to use for it and put it in a folder or container of some sort (this way i wont have to keep diggin around when im in the middle of a good idea). when i finish the project and move on to the next one, i never bother to clean out the container that housed the old project's stuff. eventually, i end up with several piles of papers, ribbons and embellishments all over the place.

it finally dawned on me, that the piles and the slump are related. when im surrounded by old mess and disorganization, i feel down in the dumps and unable to work. now, the article i read was more about the cleaning up than the relation between being messy and downward slumps, but thats what i am going to share with you :)

if ever you feel bleh about your crafting, take some time to spruce up your area. when doing anything that invloves creativity, its best to work in an area that is inspiring (sometimes it takes some persiring to make something inspiring).

if you feel bleh about your selection of goodies and your pocket book is feeling a little tight, i suggest going through your crafty storage and pulling out some product that you havent seen for a while and work it into your page.

when you work on organizing your work area, keep in mind that whatever you use most should be kept closest to your work station. if you do end up diggin out some older goodies, try and store them in arms reach so that its easier to access them.

im still in the process of fixing up my area, but i highly suggest you try some of these tips. you never know if it'll take you out of your slump :)

whats up at Scrapbook Heaven

i have some updates for you!!!

this saturday is the Cupcake Swap Crop. what the heck is that??? well, basically its a swap (you make a bunch of the same page and trade it with others) and a crop (after you swap, you sit down and enjoy some good ol' fashion scrappin!) where does the cupcake fit in? thats the theme silly! you make a cupcake recipe card (6x6) and you trade your recipe with everyone elses. you also MUST bring a sampling of the recipe :) *yum*

the swap crop is $20, and you get to pick out a 6x6 album to put your recipes in! also at the crop, we'll be giving away this very cute cupcake stand!

make and takes this saturday!!!!! 1/16 from 10am to 4pm we'll be making this beautiful card! cost is $3. (i am soooooooo loving these colors right now)

and i'm gonna give you a little teaser photo of the envelope mini album! so many of you loved the album that my friend gave us that we decided to make it a class! take a look!
i will have the completed album in store tomorrow if you wanna take a closer look. this class is 1/24, 3:30pm $20 (includes all materials)

a little more eye candy for ya!

here's a little somethin somethin to get you inspired (hopefully!)

this is an album i made for a friend of mine (her bday was in nov, but i only got a chance to post these pics now!). its another 4x4 with no printed paper, all cardstock.

the cover was made last. i had a very hard time coming up with something, just because i feel that the cover should set the tone for the rest of the book. why make an "ok" cover when you feel like the rest is award winning???? either way...i was pleased with this cover :) its velvet cardstock with dry embossing, feathers, a purple chipboard circle w/love stamped and covered in irisescent glitter.

some of the pages were really simple, but still look really cool. this page is just a dark purple cardstock w/an embossed guitar

this page has a smattering of crackle paint. usually i put crackle paint on a piece of chipboard, but this time i experimented! i painted it right onto the cardstock and left a dry-brush technique around the outside. once the crackle paint dried, i used my finger to smear some distress stickles. many people have asked what the difference is between regular stickles and distress stickles and in doing these mini albums i figured it out! regular stickles have glitter that reflect a colored sparkle, distress stickles are see through so the color is there but the sparkle is colorless.

playing with some lace! i love lace, its my new obsession!
since i tryed out this ribbon weaving technique, i cant stop!!! here it is once more in purple :)
flowers flowers flowers! my albums dont get a stamp of approval unless there is at least one flower (yeah, even my boy pages get flowers. its my scrapbook, so if i say flower, FLOWER!!!)
another simple page. see that bird stamped in white? i bought that stamp 2 years ago and that was the first time i used it!
and the final page, my absolute FAVE (save the best for last right?) there are few words to describe the pride i have in this page. like i said before, there isnt any printed paper in this um yeah, i totally made that design! i used distress inks for all of it: the background, edges and the stamp.
what makes this page extra special is that that background purple is a custom mixed color! the purple distress ink is a tad too blue for this color scheme, so i put some purple, a little red and a touch of black and BAM you get this! i call it Caroline Purple :)

and since this book had flowers, it got my stamp of approval :)
i'm working on a few more albums, so i'll post those here when i'm done :) also, just some fyi, we have 4 new valentine collections coming in, so be on the look out for that post/email/facebook update!!!
see you later!
