I Love Custom Work!

I love to scrapbook. Not just my photos, but other people's photos too! And sometimes, it's fun to scrap without any photos at all! Custom work can sometimes be tough (ie: when they give me horrendous pictures, which is what often happens), but I still love to do it. I love the challenge. I had gotten an order a couple of weeks ago to do an 8.5x11 album for a Bat Mitzvah. My customer told me that she wanted in to be black, white, and hot pink. She told me to make it "WILD!" Her words. I've done some work for her in the past, so she knew my style and told me to run with the project. She stressed the "wild" part to me a few times, which made me really excited because I often have to restrain myself. Folks don't always "get" my style... but this customer, totally gets me. So, away I went! Here are a couple of layouts I made for the book. I also had the joy of painting the covers because we used an American Crafts naked D-Ring Binder (LOVE!). I think that the entire book came out really cool. I'll be delivering it to her tomorrow. I hope that she loves it. I think it's rad... but there's always that little bit 'o doubt in the back of my head! Unfortunately, this is the last bit of custom work that I have at the moment. Sniff. Hopefully I'll get some more soon. However, that just frees me up to do some of my own scrappin'! And I sure have a whole lot to do!!! (Click on the photos to get a bigger picture!)

PS: I have officially added a stat counter! So, keep coming to visit my little blog, and tell your buds to visit too! Make my blog feel special pleeze!!!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
