Last week Colleen found a Scrabble tile set to use in crafting, with some great examples of how to use game pieces for projects. Today I have an example of a crafty way to fix a second hand game that was missing some of its pieces. We found a Boggle Junior set that had two games’ pieces combined yet still didn’t have every letter of the alphabet. It was frustrating for my kids to be almost finished with a word and not be able to find the “G” dice. So I took some of my scrapbooking letter stickers and stuck them to the dice to replace the missing letters. I ended up covering all of the dice sides with stickers so that the letters would all look the same. And now it is much more fun for us to play!

Much of the time when I’m stamping I emboss my images. Embossing makes the image stand out by raising it and making it shiny. There are a few different approaches to embossing & some different products you can try (such as clear or colored powders and white or colored stamp pads, plus we’ll discuss whether to use pigment or dye based inks). But the basic idea is you stamp your image on paper with ink, sprinkle embossing powder & remove the excess, then use a heat tool to melt the powder. So here goes…
If you came to see us on Saturday I sent you home with one of these:
When I was working more for my previous business I made a huge effort to have professional business cards. I wanted people to know that even though I was independently employed I was still very serious and you could trust me.
Clever Nesting is still very professional. We work hard and do our best to be excellent. But when we hand you a card the first thing we want you to know about us is that we make quality things, and we have ingenuity. I can credit Ellie with the idea to use the back of cereal and mac n’ cheese boxes, and thank Colleen for being all about it. These are fun business cards, for sure. I can’t wait until we get really good at silk screening. Then we’ll have really cool cards!
I’ve been eyeing the Zutter Bind-It-All for a few months now. I’ve looked at other binding options on the market hoping to find something a bit less expensive (always looking for thrifty deals!) But, alas the Zutter is the best price and best product for my scrapbooking and bookbinding ideas.
And then I received one for my birthday! My husband’s mom offered to take me to Archiver’s to pick something out. I can’t wait to get crafting with it! I want to make books for my son, family scrapbooks, and lots of gifts. I also have friends with kids and want to make personalized coloring books.
Zutter’s website has a place for people to add images of crafts they’ve done with Zutter. One of my favorites is this book made from Starbuck’s sleeves.
