Friday Favorites: January 15, 2011

Hola, my scrappy peeps!! I hope you've had a lovely Friday. I've spent mine catching up on a few projects that I've fallen behind on (I love my every-other-Friday off work), including Project Life and lots and lots of photo editing.

I've got some great links to share with you today in case you're looking for something crafty to do this weekend.

From left to right:
  • Marcy Penner has made her own Project Life "kit" this year, and it's fabulous!
  • Karen Grunberg talks about her journey to finding her own scrapbook style by making a layout a day last May on Write. Click. Scrapbook.
  • Elise Blaha Cripe has a great guest post with an idea for quick and easy memory keeping throughout the year.
  • Seriously, how cute are these candles made with sheets of colored beeswax and cookie cutters? Check out The Crafts Dept. for more information.
  • There's an awesome new challenge blog on the block for those who love kit clubs but need more supplies like they need a hole in the head. Counterfeit Kit selects a new kit each month for you to "copy" from your own stash. They even provide tutorials on how to make your own versions of many embellishments. A definite must-see!
  • Visit Seriously...brains for a quick tutorial on edging your photos with acrylic paint. It's an easy way to give them a lot of pop!
  • Jasmine Star, wedding photographer extraordinaire, writes on her tips and tricks for bloggers.
  • The CHA sneak peeks are starting to trickle in, and I'm already in love with all the new colors of Mister Huey on the way from Studio Calico. They have two sets in the works- Countryside, and State Fair
  • Shimelle Laine blogs about ways to stretch your scrapbooking supplies, with a bonus being that many of her ideas are also great design foundations for your pages.
Have a scrappy weekend, everyone!
