The number one thing to remember when you crop photos is to TELL A STORY! Linda of Partycrafts Secret gives you three examples of what she means that you can try next time you're scarpbooking and cuttin' up those photo's! I am sooo lovin' her idea!
Also, in the site's right hand column, click onto and view her 55 page How To Host A Themed Party flip album.




Tea and Cookie Gift Set! Debi calls her project, TEA FOR TWO, and Kimberly Morris created a quick video tutorial for a Teabag Pouch for you to watch! However, no matter what it's called, it's always a great gift-giving project that anyone would love to receive!

Ever thought about working on canvas intstead of card stock and watercolor papers? Jill Foster's video tutorial will have you lovin' her techniques for watercoloring on canvas! This technique would easily create beautiful one-of-a-kind home decor pieces, such as scrapbooking on the wall.

Better Homes and Garden's Decoupage Home Decor Projects is full of decoupaged decor projects that will inexpensively cheer up any space or accent. A collage of cutouts ( maybe even stamps!), and a few coats of sealer are all you need -- to read the "how-to's" to each photo simply click on PRINT in slide show which takes you to another page to print including pertinate information for eah slide. You can choose to print each slide seperately or select PRINT ALL SLIDES pertaining to this article; it's all of 13 pages long, which takes 7 sheets using both side FYI.

Better Homes and Garden's Clever Art and Paper Scraps decor will most definitely inspire you to get creative with wall decor! Use those pretty bits and pieces of paper you can't bear to part with for wall-art projects. There's a list of other projects as well but I just had to "entice" you with some of my favorite projects!! Sorry, I couldn't stop myself from showing you so many of them.

AHHHH, something I've forgotten about, which was once all the rage to do, and have a few unfinished one's too ...the Flip Flop Mini Album. So here's your reminder too, from Pat's, The Technique Trail! I've added a flip flop image and a rhinestone flip flop that can help you in your flip flop designing.

Looking to put some "action" into your projects? Action Wobble Springs are self-adhesive collapsible springs that add motion and dimension to flat objects for a unique effect. Just peel off the backing paper on one side and attach to your card, scrapbook page, or other paper crafting project. Then remove the other backing paper side, stick to your cut-out stamped image on top, and you're ready to wobble!

The Action Wobble Springs are available in my Dizzy Designs Store. Action Wobble Springs measure approximately 1-1/2"L x 1-1/4"W x 1.4"H and each package comes with 12 Wobble Spring @ $8.55 and that includes shipping!

AND HERE'S SOME AWFULLY "CUTE" VIDEO REASON'S TO USE THE ACTION WOBBLES SPRINGS!!



I'll be posting more, as I find things of interest to both you and I!

I hope I've given you some ideas to fill your summertime long hours with fun projects -- and make ahead Christmas gift-giving ideas!
