friday favorites | june 15, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've all got great weekends planned. For me, it's a girls' road trip to IKEA tomorrow with my mom, sister-in-law, aunt, and cousin, and then on Sunday we'll be celebrating Father's Day!

Just in case you're in a crafty mood this weekend, I've got the usual complement of fun, crafty ideas gathered up to share with you this week!


From the top left:

  • Fun (and loooong) lace paper streamers made with receipt paper rolls, of all things! Found at Hostess with the Mostess.
  • Check out these cool triangle chains at Dear Lizzy.
  • Lisa Truesdell shows how to use washi tape to fill in the negative space in die cut words on the Two Peas in a Bucket blog.
  • Learn to make a cute mini notebook out of magazine pages at A Beautiful Mess.
  • Elise Blaha Cripe shares a great set of tips for taking "everyday" photos- perfect for those looking for inspiration for Project Life photography!
  • I absolutely love this idea on Unclutterer for using multiple small Expedit units from IKEA to maximize storage in tight spaces. 
  • Jenni Hufford shares her Project Life inspired travel album- such a great idea!
  • Scrapbook and Cards Today posted a tutorial combining paper rosettes and washi tape for a cool effect.
