2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / New Pages on: August 10, 2008 01:57:44 PM
Well I'm addicted to scrapbooking.  I'm not the most professional scrapbooker, but I love to put pages and pictures together to keep memories alive.  Recently, my boyfriend and I celebrated three years of dating and I figured it was time to start scrapbooking some of our own memories.  I wasn't going to make a scrapbook for Joey (the boyfriend) because he's not into that sort of thing.  But I wanted to make one for me--to have to show our future children and friends.  You might say I'm looking pretty far into the future, but it's realistic (I promise).  So here's what I've come up with so far...

The Opening Page:

Quote: "Love is Friendship set on fire"

At the Renaissance Fair:

Kind of plain, but I thought it was alright...

We met and fell in love working at a Boy Scout Summer Camp:

Up-close Detail:

We Like to Party:

Quote: "Live, Laugh, Love"

We love to take trips and explore the outdoors:


Well, what do you guys think?
Its simple, but it's a start...

I love the sofa and the hot/cold towel holders!  That was really clever to do that! Did you make that or find it somewhere?

I love it!  The colors and decorations go so well together!  Triple Kudos!!!  I can only hope my apartment will look half as cute as your duplex!  Tongue

The other day I decided to play with "Fried Glass," so I bought a bag of flat marbles from the dollar store and followed this tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202515.0).  Next thing I know, I've got probably 50 fried marbles and no idea what to do with them.  And then I remembered a craft project I did in high school where we turned the flat marbles into pushpins!  So that's exactly what I did with my fried marbles!

Acrylic paint and paint brush
Fried Marbles
Hotglue and hot glue gun

For Non-Fried Marbles:
Elmers glue
old magazines
hot glue and hot glue gun
flat bottomed marbles

I painted the tops of the thumbtacks pretty colors so that the tacky brass wouldn't show through (I just used a couple of coats of acrylic paint that I had laying around).  And then put a dollop of hot glue on the flat part of the marble and stuck the thumbtack in!  And voila!  A pushpin!  I love how the color comes through the fried glass!!

I also made some pushpins with non-fried marbles and glued (with elmers glue) cut out patterns (pottery barn catalogues are great for these!) and glued them to the back of the marble, then hot glue dollop, then the thumb tack.

They're fantastic!  Look how many I made!!! LoL... I was seriously bored!  Tongue

I found a stool on the side of the road and knew that it would be perfect for my new little apartment!  So I stashed it in the car, drove it home, and began to decorate it (who wants a plain old stool when you can have a pretty stool?)

Here's the end result:
