i have been asked to do a beading workshop at the local MFRC. i'm totally stoked, and they asked if i could bring in some of the stuff i make to put in a display. so i whipped up two tiny display boards to show off two variations of the pendent i'll be teaching people how to make, but i couldn't figure out what else to take in. i had so many shiny awesome things.

then i got this chipboard book at the dollar store, its 10 x 10 inches, and has 20 pages. i thought i could turn into into a scrapbook for some memorial pictures i took. but inspiration struck and i realised i could fill it with pictures of the jewellery i make, and then i could display 40 to 50 peices in the amount of space two would take. i may have actually gone "OH YEAH AWESOME!!" as i had this realization.




the cover. so simple. plus i literally got all the papers, tools and embelleshments for the whole book at the dollarstore.


page one.


these are my favorite pages, hands down. black and white and grey on the left, and black and white and goldy/brown on the right. its really simple, but it just filled me with glee


the way i put the images in fills me with glee. the top pictures both have pendents that point inwards, and the bottom pictures both have pendents that point outward. and i actually didn't notice it until afterwards, when i was showing my husband the finished product.

the whole thing is really simple, i just used the blank pages that the book came with and kept the pages minimal so that the images which tend to be busy and full of color could really draw the eyes. it was a fantastically cheap scrapping product to do as i literally got all the papers, tools and embelleshments for the whole book at the dollarstore. i printed the photos with my photo printer thingy which is supposed to be cheap but it goes through a full ink cartrage when it prints 45 photos though, so... instead of the .10 cents a picture it advertised as, it runs me 80 cents per photo once i figure in the photo paper. (i can buy cheaper photo paper, but its not as good quality, and sometimes the ink bleeds through)

i got half a billion compliments on the book and the jewelery when i dropped it all off. so i'm pretty pleased with it!

living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.
