A Layout and Some Links.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. You're awesome. :)

Part 1: Layout

Yesterday, there was a Community Challenge over at Two Peas to make a layout about your 10 favorite scrapbooking products. I could use a challenge, so I ran with it. Here's what I came up with:

Supplies (holy cow there were a lot!): Cardstock- The Paper Studio (Kraft and White) and American Crafts (pinks), Patterned Paper- Basic Grey, Stamps- Hero Arts (Butterfly, Elephant, Woodgrain, and Word Bubble) and Autumn Leaves (Flower), Punches- Marvy Uchida (Scalloped Circles) and EK Success (Butterfly and 1.5” Circle), Circle Cutter- Making Memories, Embossing Folder- Swiss Dots by Provo Craft, Letter Stickers- Making Memories (glitter, pink, and white) and American Crafts (Brown Chipboard), Paper Flowers- Prima, Brads- The Paper Studio, Thread- DMC, Embossing Ink and Powder- Ranger, Ink- Ranger (Broken China and Walnut Ink) and StazOn by Tsukineko (Black), Brown Pen- ZIG, Ribbon- Unknown, Rhinestones- The Paper Studio, Chipboard Circle- Maya Road, Font- American Typewriter.

Part 2: Links

I like to do this when I start to have too many tabs and can't let go of the inspiration. Why not share them?

1. These gorgeous gold sequined shoes from Toms:

2. Circle MiniBook instructions that worked perfectly for an album I'm almost done with.

3. These gorgeous scalloped labels.

4. Joggemia's profile on Two Peas. Her blog is amazing, too. I wish I read her language!

5. A tutorial on making your own Clip It Up. This is definitely on my to-do list.

6.The RVA Girls' blog has some absolutely adorable crochet inspiration posted. I mean really, how awesome is this?

7. I absolutely need this stamp set by Papertrey ink. Nichole made some inspiring cards to show what the stamps can do. Awesome!

8. There's a FAB giveaway at the cuttlebugspot for simply signing up to be a follower- you can win $1000 dollars! Check it out here.

As always, leave a link that's inspiring you today, and I'll include it with a link to your blog next week when I do a links post. :)

Have a wonderful day!

Okay I just love that page. It's perfect.

Oh and thanks so much for your comments on my video! I promise after I watch it I had to go ask my husband if that's really how I sound.

I did pretty good with holding back. I got In Bloom, buttons, and the cream ink and cardstock. I just love In Bloom too! I can't wait to get my hands on it.
