friday favorites | august 26, 2011

Happy, happy Friday evening, peeps!! I hope everyone has had a great week. Mine has been cah-ray-zee busy, but in a good way (instead of last week before when it was nutso in a "I want to crawl under a rock and hide sort of way). The week started off with drama over a button, of all things, but quickly turned into an awesome get-things-done time. I finalized plans to bring lots of great new content both to this blog and to Scrapbook Update in the coming months, so be on the lookout for some fun!

Also, did you see this from October Afternoon??!?!?


Oh, my, they've really outdone themselves this time with the new Christmas release- here's hoping I can get my hands on it soon!

Now, how about a rundown of some fun ideas I culled from around blogland this week?


From the top left:
  • Elle's Studio recently ran a series of blog posts introducing their new design team members and showing glimpses of their scrapping spaces. I love Keshet Starr's IKEA-infused space (and congrats on the bébé, Keshet!). 
  • Keisha Campbell shares a gorgeous mini album that she put together using the August kit from Jenni Bowlin Studios.
  • Lisa Andrews posted about her scrap room makeover, complete with photos of the completed space.
  • Learn tips for taking better self portraits at Elsie Larson's (formerly Flannigan) blog, A Beautiful Mess.
  • Danielle Flanders has a beautifully detailed mini album posted at Pink Paislee.
  • Get a complete how-to on making these cute stitched flowers at the Pebbles, Inc. blog.
  • I just can't get enough of these lovely 4x6 Summer mini albums!! Gracie Swainson shares her creation at the Elle's Studio blog.
  • Fontography geeks will love this Periodic Table of Typefaces from How About Orange.
  • Marcy Penner and her studio were also featured at Elle's Studio as part of their design team intros. I absolutely love the rainbow of spray mists all lined up on her shelves!
Have a scrappy weekend!
