April 2, 2008 - Part Trois - My New Blog to Stalk!!!

Well, I made myself do something tonite. I surfed the blogs out there in webland and wow, did I find a new source of amazing inspiration. This lady's stuff just absolutely rocks!!! I was so inspired by one of her creations that I totally lifted it!!!

Her name is Angie and her blog is known as Chic n' Scratch. Make sure you swing by and check out what she is doing - wow, I'm loving everything I've seen by her. She even did video's on how to make some of the things she has on her blog - really awesome stuff!!!

So as I was saying, I was so inspired by her Post It note keychains that I totally lifted them tonite!!! I have only gotten one complete that I like - the Post It notes I had on hand weren't the same size as in Angie's demonstration so I had to do some adjusting until I got the measurements just right.

Here is the one that I made - inside:


and out:


This one isn't near as darling as the ones she has made and posted but I just love the concept of it!!! I'm contemplating on what I can do to them to give them a little something more - not that they aren't just fabulous the way they are, but tossing this into my purse would get it ripped up right away. I'm thinking maybe a piece of ribbon that would wrap around it under the scalloped piece to tie it closed. I will have to give that a try later.

Anyway, make sure you check out Angie at Chic n' Scratch and leave her some love on her fabulous work - I know I will be stalking her blog from this point forward. I am so happy I found it!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

That wouldn’t be very nice now would it???

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
