A Crafty Saturday!

I had a very productive Saturday.  It all started when the alarm went off at 7:00 am.  I attended SQL Saturday today at LSU starting at 9:00am till after lunch.  Then the craftiness started!  At the training event I received a canvas bag full of information and goodies.

While sitting in one of the classes I started to think "hey I could alter and re-purpose this bag to be a really cute tote".  Then American Crafts "Dear Lizzy" line came to mind.  So I started by taking basic white acrylic paint and painting layers to cover the screened logo.  While that was drying, I made a rolled fabric and ribbon flowers.  Then added some brads in the middle.  I also took a strip of "Dear Lizzy fabric paper and folded to make ruffles.  I then used my Slice machine, the Wedding design card, and cut out my initials.  I hot glued everything on and then added a handful of buttons, brads and vintage key.  Didn't it come out so cute!

Supplies: American Crafts "Dear Lizzy" Fabric Paper - "Firefly Festival" (35085), "Snapdragon Soiree" (35103), "Garden Gala" (35101), "Dear Lizzy" Elements - Assorted Brads (85504), Slice "Wedding" Design Card.

Today I also worked on some of my Big Picture Scrapbooking class projects.  I signed up for Jen Mohler's Saving Your Sanity: Throught The Holiday Season class.  I worked on the pre-class assignment of creating a Holiday Project Notebook.  I used American Crafts "Merrymint" line.

I also signed up for Jen's Save Your Sanity Self Paced Project. Its a jumpstart to her four part Saving Your Sanity series.  I created a workbook to organize and de-stress the creativity aspects of my life. I used my Bind It All to put it together.   I also added a Supply List Notebook very similar to the Holiday project Notebook.  For both of these I used American Crafts "Craft Fair" line.

Supplies: American Crafts "Merrymint" Patterend Paper - "Licorice" (34905), Minimarks "Frosty Accents" (43292), "Cafe Accents" (43332), "Craft Fair" Patterned Paper, Thickers - "By The Yard" (42971), "Daquiri", Remarks "Fruit Accents" (42548), Elements "Medium Glitter Brads Pastels" (85346).

Tomorrow will consist of Church and Lunch with the family, then some craft supply shopping at Michaels.   Michaels is having a 4 hour sale with and extra 25% off your entire purchase (sale items included) between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm.  Im going to luck out, most supplies are already on sale and then i get the extra 25% off.  Time to stock up.

Well thats all for today! I now going to clean up the living room, cause today I insisted on crafting on the couch.  Then I am going to go work through the worksheets in my Save Your Sanity Workbook.  Productivity at its best!  I hope everyone has enjoyed their saturday also.
