Altered CD ornament and a dps



Since I have been on such a crafting roll...I decided to keep it up. Last night I altered a CD for the brand new Scrapbook variety challenge on Splitcoast. Today I went craft shopping because the Crop-a-dile was 30% off at Joann's. That Crop-a-dile is a necessity...as I need to punch holes in CDs now..hehehee. Well, I ventured over to Archivers in Woodbury for the first time. I have tried to hold out for so long..and I caved. A friend suggested that I buy a 3-ring binder album there...since I also NEEDED them. My recent scrapbook pages have no homes... and I am completely fed up with post-bound albums. Maybe it is just me...but I fill them up so fast and then just DREAD taking it all apart to add refill pages. Being as clumsy as I am, it never is an easy task. I am just done! So I bought 2 American Crafts albums...and they are gong to be so easy to refill. I also found some great paper on sale at Michael's and of course some Christmas $1 stamps (too many!). Left Archivers with some rub-ons, chipboard, and Thickers...which I used on that Scooby Doo page. If you haven't tried them..they are chipboard letters with adhesive. So easy to throw on your page. Tonight I needed to try out some of my new stuff, so I used Sally's sketch for the week- SBSC114 on Splitcoast. I used my new Boho paper from Michael's. The stamps are Autumn Leaves Flourishes by Ronnna Farrer. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Your pages are awesome as is you CD! Great job with the challenge. I had never heard of the ready-to-stick chipboard. I will have to be on the lookout for that!

I love that snowman CD!! To think, CDs used to be such an expensive commodity, and now we're altering them with paper and glue! Too funny :)
