Friday Picks

Another week has flown by and I've been busy surfing, tweeting and blog hopping, just to bring my best finds your way. Starting to get into the holiday craft spirit with some of these! As always, and in no particular order:

#1 Do you own a Cuttlebug? Here are 4 YouTube videos showing Creative Ways to Use Your Cuttlebug, courtesy of Practical Scrappers. My favorite is adding rub ons - who knew?

#2 Francine has some wonderful Vintage Gift Wrapping Ideas using kraft paper and white doilies. Beautiful photos! She's added some gift wrapping kits to her Etsy shop.


#3 Debby's Gingerbread Christmas Garland just makes me smile. Instructions included!


#4 Here's a fun challenge on the Bo Bunny blog to create a page about yourself and have a chance to win $95 worth of Bo Bunny products! What's not to love about that?


#5 Eye Candy Alert - this Holiday Recipe Album made from Crate Paper products is simply adorable! I love the idea of having a special place for those favorite holiday dessert recipes.


#6 Kristina Werner is doing a Holiday Card Series over at her blog. Here's an example from Day 14. Love her cards and the how-to video for each one!


We have 3 social events on our calendar this weekend - getting together with friends - some newer, some we've known since our kids were little. I'm thankful for the blessing of all these friendships. Don't forget to check out this month's challenge at Scrapbooker's Anonymous. My post as a member of the design team is here. You still have until the end of the month to play along!

  2. I really enjoyed seeing the vintage wrapping ideas using Kraft paper and doiles and the Holiday Recipe Album. I got my layout posted yesterday for the Scrappers Anonymous challenge - really enjoyed using up a couple of very old Christmas papers from my stash! Enjoy your weekend, we have three events also! :>)

  9. Love the Cuttlebug resources. I love mine but clearly am not creative enough to use it like some do! I need to try some of these ideas from the videos.
