1. Susan, sorry but I don't frequent junk shops in the KC area so I can't help you out. I know there's a multi story antique place that used to be by the farmer's market.
2. A few additions to the shop today just went up. Thanks to those who shopped with me today. :)
TGIF friends! Hope you're gearing up for a great weekend. Today I have an idea for you that will help you use up those little left over scraps. I've been keeping this wooden basket on my stamping table where I toss in little left over tid bits.
Small pieces of patterned paper, die cut elements, extra tags, ledger paper, sheet music, etc.
Little pieces from projects....like the negative pieces from punched and die cut papers and felt. Cute little snippets that may or may not work their way into projects. I toss the scraps in and rummage through the goodies from time to time when looking for a little something extra to add to a project. Every so often I just dump out the items and start over. The key is to not over stock the scrappy basket....just a few items here and there to inspire. :)
Here I used a negative piece from a die cut for a journaling accent in my Project Life album. I stitched around the piece with my sewing machine and then stamped the coordinating frame image inside.
And here I used some colorful patterned paper scraps and die cut borders on a card that came together really quickly.
Using the Bitty Background Blocks and the pinked square die from the Button Card Die Collection I stamped and die cut squares using Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst and Summer Sun inks. Butterfly die shapes are from the Love Lives Here Die Collection.
More scrappy pieces were sewn down for the edge of the card. An Aqua Mist ribbon finishes off the card.
Now, if you're like my Jordy, you'll be rummaging through the trash can in your craft room....searching for those little tidbits that could be the perfect finishing touch for projects. Hopefully now she can just search through my little scrappy basket.
I hope you all have a great weekend with sunshine-y skies and warm temperatures!
