...How about mobile, Divco, 'Supplies! Parties' -- a park-n'-shop novelty for scrapbook nights, bridal showers, baby showers, etc. I like it. Or I could have the cutest camper/RV ever.
Lia made me these wonderful presents for my birthday. They made their way safely here all the way from Singapore. Thank you, Lia! Such a great surprise.
I particularly love the varied textures on the tag above. Lia used a couple of papers from my line. The 'h' is decorated with one of my corner stamps, but it has a thick, clear coating over the top. I'm thinking she may have used Diamond Glaze. Have you ever tried Diamond Glaze? It's fantastic. I use it when making painted necklace pendants. I don't think I've shown you those.
And check out this fun, framed collage and birthday card. A lot of scrappers cut shapes from papers and then use them as 3-D elements in their projects -- such a great way to achieve a layered effect. I made a fun, little gift-box using this technique for my upcoming CK article. I'm excited to put together some variations in the next week or so and post a free pattern for it. More on that later.
Speaking of paper crafts, check out this Raggedy Ann masterpiece that Leslie put together. I'm just ga-ga for it. I've always loved how well cherry-red works with this icy, pastel palette. Leslie really picked up on that and used it to maximum effect. (And check out these overalls too.)
Oh, now I need to hunt down the childhood photo of me gripping my favorite Raggedy Ann doll. I believe my mom tried to take my doll away from me for the portrait, but I would have none of that and must have thrown a fit. In the end, my mom ended up with a photo of me greedily clutching my doll -- with tears welled up in my eyes -- doubly not what she had in mind. I was about one and a half.
I'm looking forward to next week. Lots of fun little design projects to wrap up and some baby presents to make for friends. I was going to embellish some onesies, but now I'm thinking Happy Stacker ring toys with coordinating 3-D tags as cards - kinda like the top photo. Might get out my Diamond Glaze even. Though I had draped Lia's tag there casually for a the photo... well, they just look so great together. No need for wrapping paper.
I don't know if I've mentioned the new HB Paper Crafts Group on Flickr yet, but it's all set up and ready for you. (Erica just posted the cutest wooden dolls.) I've added the paper group to my sidebar, along with the new Pop Garden & Bijoux Flickr Group for those fabulous fabric projects of yours. Gah! Double gah! You guys are amazing. I love Flickr groups. Really such an easy way to inspire and get inspired.
