friday favorites | september 2, 2011

Happy Friday, peeps!! I hope you've had a good one. Mine was full of work, a BodyPump class at the gym, and then nearly three and a half hours of standing on the sidelines of a football field getting some photography practice in.

This weekend I've got some great crafty plans including much playing with letterpress systems and making some layouts with my new Sweet Peach kit- it's full of so much awesome Amy Tangerine from American Crafts!

I've also got some great links to share with you this week, so let's dive in!

From the top left:
  • Oh Happy Day has the cutest tutorial on making cake stands out of old records (Dad, don't worry- I have no plans to do this with any of yours!). 
  • Learn to make your own washi tape magnets at Twirling Betty.
  • Craft Gossip links to an awesome butterfly dingbat font- perfect for use in digital die cutters!
  • Martha Stewart's Crafts Dept. blog shows how to make beautifully painted glass vases.
  • I'm loving anything mist related lately, especially ways to store them! Check out this cool spice rack conversion at Studio Calico.
  • I'm also kind of in love with maps right now, so these DIY map cork boards at Design Sponge definitely caught my eye!
  • Scrapbooks, Etc. shares a great way to store and organize punches.
  • How about another idea for organizing color mists? Marcy Penner shares her DIY "swatch book" over at Write. Click. Scrapbook.
  • And, finally, this "High Tea" dessert buffet on Amy Atlas' blog is just so lovely that I simply had to share it!
Have a scrappy weekend!
