Thank you thank you thank you!  My daughter has been driving me nuts for a sock monkey, and I completely refuse to pay as much as they want for one. 

Looks like I had better start making it.  Smiley
853  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: creative ways to make your own scrapbook albums? on: December 22, 2011 05:43:38 AM
i make most of my mini albums from scratch

i bought a set of spines for like 6 dollars (and i got ALOT of spines for it) and i use the chipboard from different items as covers

it involves alot of math, but i think its worth it in the end.

if you would like i can do a tutorial for you and post it here Smiley

i would do all the math parts, but it would be a good way to learn all the steps so you could do it for yourself

ANOTHER way to bind is using ribbon, my best friend uses that method the most


PLEASE PLEASE Pretty please with a bunch of paper and embellishments on top??? I would love a tutorial!

They all pretty much said what I would say, but I would add one thing:  A multi-compartment storage bin (before you even start buying the other things).   You will need it, and even if  you go with smaller scrapbooks, invest in the 12x12.  You'll want the space for something eventually. 

As was posted, it's a slippery slope, and as my DH will attest, you find yourself keeping the oddest things... My DH drew the line at me saving the little tabs from bread bags.  *laughing at self*

I don't know if you have anything like it where you are, but at my fabric/craft store (Joann's) and craft store (Michael's), we have themed plastic buttons.
If you cut the back off of it (the loop part, and I use large nail clippers) it becomes a 3d embellishment. 

One or the other, I think Michaels,  sells a "grandma's button" bag that is about 50-50 in regular buttons and theme buttons for about $6 and comes with everything.  My last one came with ice cream cones, cake, Christmas, Halloween, and baby type buttons, as well as round one in a variety of colors and sizes.

Hope this helps! Smiley

858  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Disney Scrapbook on: November 06, 2011 06:43:51 AM
I live in FL and we go to Disney as often as we can (which is not near often enough:P)- so I too have a "Disney" scrapbook.

I don't know where I found it, or if it is even still available, but google "castle pattern".  I found an excellent template for a castle that looks very like Cinderella's castle at Disney (world.  Haven't been to CA, so I can't say it's like that one). 

Also, Mickey is just 2 small circles and one big one. 

Big Lots often has Disney themed gift paper on rolls.  If you have a cutter (or alot more patience than me) you can make your own paper. 

Fortunately, Disney is pretty much everywhere, and often on clearance.  I don't know how acid free it all is, but they make this wonderful stuff at the craft store here that makes papers acid free. 

Hope this helps, and that a bazillion other people didn't already say the same thing Smiley

These are ~so~ cute!  This is my first Christmas in my new place, and I finally have enough space for my village.  Pulled it all out and realized I had no trees or anything like that... these are going to fit right in! Thanks so much for this idea:)
