I had a good friend visiting from California this weekend, and we were browsing through some old scrapbooks .... I kept thinking to myself that there were some great ideas and techniques in these books that I haven't used in a long time.
Also, I love Jennifer McGuire's articles in Creating Keepsakes using old tools to make current embellishments ... she's always got some great ideas!
There are so many new products in the scrapbooking/stamping industry being released constantly .... I always love new products ... especially tools (I am a tool junkie) .... but I've decided to challenge myself trying to mix some old product in with the new .... actually attempt to use up some of that nice stash!! And just because you don't see those old products on too many projects anymore, it doesn't mean that they're not still very cool!
Speaking of old techniques ... this is one Tim taught years ago .... but it still remains a favorite of mine. Now with all the new die cuts it just makes it more enjoyable. Out of inventory came silver tape, wood mirror, alcohol inks, used my Ten Seconds Studio tools .... new to the mix were the new Tim Holtz Sizzix dies ....
Hope you had a great Memorial Day, and remember to say an extra prayer for all of our soldiers fighting for our country and our liberties, all over the world.
God bless them all!
Enjoy your week.
