What’s the Strangest Thing You’ve Scrapbooked???

June 21, 2017
What's the strangest thing you've scrapbooked?

I love to attend craft shows, maker shows (like this weekend’s Maker Faire in Kansas City!) and I tend to keep the pretty little bits I get along the way (like a magpie, if it’s sparkly, I want it).  I either buy a ton of pretty little bits, and/or grab a cool business card I see.

Any time I travel, the FIRST thing I look up for the trip are stationery stores and small businesses where cute things can be found.  Up until last week, these were in a box in my closet.  As I was working on my 100 Day Project (I chose 100 3×4 Project Life cards because that’s my favorite format to scrapbook), it hit me!  Why not scrap these pretty little bits?! In case you’re curious here’s what I’ve scrapped:

Top row, L-R:

  1. Greenwich Letterpress enamel pin backing + a leather tag from a pair of Anthropologie earrings
  2. Sugar Maple Paper Co business card/coaster that I couldn’t bear to actually use
  3. Stand Tall Amongst Giants clothing tag
  4. One of my favorite beer flavors, the label right off the bottle: Leinenkugel’s Watermelon Shandy
  5. & 6. Pins from Oh Leander

Second row, L-R:

  1. YAS YAS YAS card by Farewell Paperie
  2. Katie Abbey’s business card
  3. Tokidoki cactus dog keychain (I don’t like his real name so I just call him cactus dog…)
  4. Not a Hugger enamel pin backing by Wit & Whistle
  5. “Leather” fringe heart from a greeting card in the Target Dollar Spot (holla!)
  6. Ted Baker holiday tag from something I don’t even recall … clearly the item was not as important as the pretty tag

Third row, L-R:

  1. Pins from Golden Gems
  2. More pins from Golden Gems
  3. A cut down PL card from a pad I really liked but I HATE ROUNDED CORNERS!  Thankfully this design lent well to cutting down.  (Petition Project Life to start making SQUARE CORNER cards?!)
  4. Pin backing from an exclusive enamel pin designed by Emily Coxhead for the now sadly defunct Lucky Dip Club
  5. Cry now cry later iron on patch by Sara M Lyons (he’s a member of my sad ghost club, SGC being what I call my depression hehhh!)
  6. Tokidoki Donutella keychain

Fourth row, L-R:

  1. Bon Lux candle packaging
  2. Cry, Baby Cry poem from a zine by Caitie Metz
  3. Tag from Foie De Joie – STORY TIME: I got this perfume as a sample in Birch Box two years ago.  I milked that sample until there was nothing left, because the full size bottle was $100!  Fast forward a few years and I had some extra Christmas money and decided to buy the bottle of MY FAVORITE PERFUME EVER OF ALL TIME IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE.  When it arrived I sprayed it on my entire body immediately. (Duh.)  It smelled like I’d just dipped myself in rubbing alcohol.  The smell was totally different and I almost cried.  Thankfully Birch Box is a wonderful company and refunded my purchase just because I didn’t like it?!?! Cool huh!  I’m not sure what to do with it now… but I’ve scrapbooked the pretty tag from the box.
  4. Gold letterpress tag that I cut from the Day Designer insert from my planner last year
  5. Creature Type’s business card
  6. Old English enamel pin backing + another Golden Gems pin

This was so fun, I highly recommend digging into your sentimental stash of goodies, grab a glue pen, & get going! <3
