What's New Wednesdays!

We at PFOP are getting very excited. We will be having a team challenge where each member will list an album between Oct. 4 and 10th and give a percentage of the winning bid for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Susan G. Komen foundation. Please join us for that week and bid generously and help us fight for the cure.

Here are a couple of sneak peaks of what we have up our sleeve for the auctions on ebay. We will post more sneekie peekies as we finish our projects so be sure to check us out by searching PFOP on ebay.

Tuesdays Tips

Today's Scrapbooking Tip involves corner rounders.

I use mine often for mats, photos and the edges of some of my chipboard albums.
They are also useful for making quick and easy tabs.

I use whatever scraps I have, cut them 1 1/4" x 1 1/2" and fold them in half. Use the corner rounder to cut the two ends of the FOLDED piece and voila, you have a matching tab.

Happy Scrap'n

Inspiration Alley

Hope everyone's autumn has started off with great weather and lots of scrapping time. I love the beauty that the season shows us. I saw a quote and thought I'd share it with you: "Autumn is a second spring when every flower is a leaf." (author unknown) Pretty sweet, isn't it!?!

Anyway, for this week's inspiration alley, I've chosen the blog of a lady who does awesome work, and she does lots of two page layouts, which really inspire me. I still do quite a few two page layouts for my family albums because I take so many photos! And of course I do two page layouts for eBay too. Heather's layouts, both one and two pagers (and her cards), are always creative and beautiful. I'm sure you'll be inspired when you visit her blog:

What's New Wednesdays!

For those of your that have not jumped on the acrylic album band wagon, here is a chance to learn a little more about acrylic albums.  Clear Scraps sells great albums not only in acrylic but chipboard also.  I use them pretty often because they have a variety of shapes.

Here are some pictures of what they released at CHA 2009 summer.  It is a combination of clear acrylic shapes mixed in with chipboard.  This would be a great way to "ease" into acrylics without pressure.

Here is another way to "ease" into acrylics.  Just get the mini acrylics and start small.  Below is one of Clear Scraps new releases its a mini snowflake and they measure about 3x3.

Below is a picture of what one of the Clear Scraps designs did with the snow flake

I love trying new things, it gives me renewed inspiration and I like being challenged to keep me on my toes and my creativity going.  So why not try some thing new today.

What's New Wednesdays!

Trick or Treat? With this new line from Reminisce, it's both! Glittered bats, sparkly spider webs, embossed mummy paper, a laser cut haunted house, and a sweet die cut jack-o-lantern are just a few of the cutting edge techniques used to create this killer new collection!  Halloween is just around the corner and this line would make it so much easier for you to scrap your pages.

Take a look at PFOP in the following weeks because we will have some awesome Halloween auctions up!!

Here is the full line of paper from Reminisce

Below is a layout that one of the designers for Reminisce did.
Happy Halloweenie .... start planning your pages !!

Tuesday's Tip

For today's tip, I thought I would discuss SUGAR COATING!!

I know some scrappers are not thrilled with sparkle and then there are those of us who would like glitter on everything and of course those in between ;-).

I received Doodlebug's sugar coating glitter in a trade and must say I've really enjoyed using them. The small jars are great for handling the glitter and I really like mixing the colours. I use Inkssentials glossy accents or just regular craft glue. I tried stamping with a light colour and outlining the stamp with the glue and then glittering it ~ works like a charm.

What do you like to glitter up???

happy scrappin,

Welcome to Inspiration Alley

The designers at Pocket Full of Papers are always ready for inspiration. So, we decided that we would start sharing with our readers a few of the great blogs we've come across. We will plan to highlight a blog every week -- sometimes an individual blog, sometimes a challenge blog -- who knows what we might find and share!

For our very first post, I wanted to share the talent of an amazing lady -- Becca. I found Becca's website about a year ago, and I am so glad I did. Her talent is beyond creative! I hope you will find inspiration among her many beautiful creations!

What's New Wednesdays!

This week I want to talk about HAMBLY Screen Prints! I love their overlays, paper, rubons and stickers. Their images are soooo cute. Remember the beautiful rub-on cage? I think I used that image on every layout I had for a month (LOL). Hambly sells a beautiful calendar too.

Well at CHA Summer they came out with WALL DECALS. I thought it was such a good idea. These decals looked so beautiful on their display walls at CHA and they are pretty big. These would be perfect to decorate your childs room or a dining room. How about your scrap room? I would definately put the cage on my walls (LOL)
Wall at CHA

Hambly's wall decals were featured in Country Living, yes because they are that pretty.

Here is a layout made by Kerry Lynn one of Hambly's awesome designers
