If you're a scrapbooker or even just interested in scrapbooking please check out the online crop going on right now at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. As always, there are wonderful prizes to be given away and great promotions in the store.

Second, I am late posting these but here are my newest acquired Etsy goodies:

Aren't these just the most adorable little beaded flowers !! BeadFloraJewels makes amazing beaded floral masterpieces and I had to snag up a couple to use on a scrapbook layout. (I'll post the layout when it's done.) I really think they'll add some great focal interest and unique texture.


I also received this adorable little necklace from Goldstar Designs. It's such a happy necklace !! She also makes cute little zippered pouches and wristlets, perfect for holding your iPod, cell phone and some spending money. :) Shameless plug for myself also --- I am featured on her blog, check it out !!

And lastly, who doesn't enjoy a chance to win some great stuff ? I stumbled onto a promotion that the Etsy Homefront Street Team (military spouses and moms) is having on their blog. It's called the May Day Giveaway and they are being very generous in their prizes. Gorgeous jewelry, hair accessories, photography and much more are being given away. I'm going to risk sounding like someone else and say... it's a good thing !

Happy Scrapbooking and Happy Weekending !!!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
