weekend craftiness.

This weekend on twitter I mentioned I was going to attempt to get some scrapping done with some really old supplies. Since I’m living at my parents house all I had to use was a box of old supplies that I have to get rid of that I didn’t think I would ever use.

Well I’m glad they were here this weekend because I put them to good use. Well most of them anyways (there’s still some really questionable and dare I say, ugly, stuff that I may try to use on something later on this week. But seriously when I see it I wonder what the heck I was thinking when I bought it).

Most of the papers you see are (I’m pretty sure) from the dollar store from back in the day. There’s a bit of Chatterbox and old MME stuff there too. And luckily I had a small stash of vintage goodies like ledger papers and old sewing patterns around here for just such an occasion. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         First up is a small set of thank you notes for some special people. I saw something like these somewhere on the interweb a while ago but I didn’t save the picture to my inspiration folder. I hope I’m not, but I may be inadvertently copying these. So if you’ve seen something like this somewhere before, let me know so I can credit the person who inspired these notes.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And a fun little layout about a day trip to Wonderland I took with the fam last week. I used the park map, an old library card, vintage sewing pattern some of the aforementioned old product, an H&M bag (if i never shopped for clothing I wouldn’t have half of the stuff I use for scrapbooking these days) and some AC glitter cardstock.

Have you guys seen this stuff? It is ridiculously glittery. Super glam. Totally tacky. And I kind of love it. I had to get a couple sheets the other day.

What have you guys been up to?


PS I love you…

This wedding, shot by Anna, is the prettiest wedding I’ve seen in a long time.image And this picture is probably my favourite wedding picture I’ve ever ever seen in my whole life. It is just so much fun. I also have a pretty big thing for huge wedding parties, I don’t know what it is, I just get really excited by them.

Anyways check out the rest of the photos here.


  1. that wedding picture is SO lovely! God, you should see mine. When we move back to the States I should post some of them. I see a older picture on the next post here on your blog, I need to go take a peek.
    And those cards and LO are pretty rad. Looks like a fun time, and I sort of think sometimes blurry pictures speak louder anyways.

  2. I LOVE those thank you cards! So clever! :)

  3. Great idea for all of that old paper, god knows I have it. Perfect note cards:) Love that layout and how you added on the map of Wonderland in the background. Fun stuff:)
