Friday Favorites - Fun and Funny

Eeek!! So these are going up later than I had planned, and I didn't even post yesterday- but I have such a good excuse. :) I got a new (old) toy that will make it soooooo much easier for me to photograph layouts to share on the blog and spent most of last night setting it up (which involved crashing the self-checkout system at Home Depot when I was buying new light bulbs- seriously, they had to reboot! Did you know those things run Windows XP?). I'll post all about it later (as soon as I've taken pictures of it). I had a bunch of layouts photographed (in my old style) and ready to share, but now I think I'm going to go back and re-photograph them. They'll look so much better!

Okay, so on with my faves this week...

From left to right:
  • Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. Okay, I have to confess that I've never physically held an issue of this magazine, but after looking at their web site I WANT IT!!! Anyone know if there is a store in the US that carries it? I might have to result to paying to have it shipped to me from Canada...
  • A totally awesome post by May Flaum on some creative ways to use digital photo masks. She was also the guest on Paperclipping Roundtable last week and talked about hybrid scrapping.
  • A cool mini album on the Hambly blog. I love mini albums. I love Hambly (and absolutely cannot wait for the cupcake overlays to come out). Any questions?
  • It's not crafty, but this list of 10 words that are often misspelled is pretty funny (at least to my neurotic self, who cringes at typos even though I know I make tons of them myself).(link via Marta Writes)
  • Printable doilies by Martha Stewart (link via Triple the Scraps). Free PDFs- woohoo!
  • The new Flutter collection by Making Memories. I'm usually not a huge fan of their 12x12 papers, but I love their journaling books and will probably pick one of these up. 
  • A couple of weeks ago I shared a site to download free scans of vintage seed packets, so this week I thought it would be neat to share this site that details the history of playing cards and has some great downloadable images. Especially with all the Alice in Wonderland hoopla these days. :) (link via Design*Sponge).
  • Christine Middlecamp shares a few pages from her newest mini. I love, love, love the color scheme.
  • ScrapScene's paper dress garland tutorial. This would be so cute as a party decoration!
Have a scrappy weekend, everyone!
