Happy crafting!



FOR SALE: Huge bundles of assorted papers & embellishments!

I have TWO of these paper crafting packets.  I spent more than eight hours cutting, compiling and assembling these ONE POUND packets.  They may not look like much packed up all tidy in these 8×10 pattern bags . . . .

A SOLID POUND OF PAPER FUN for just $29.95!!

Here is what all each packet contains:

Vintage papers; including pages from hymnals, old blank ledger pages, vintage graphics, vintage cookbook pages and lots more!

Vintage color pages; including scenery pages, vintage comic book pages and some vintage Valentine cards.

Assorted smalls and embellishments including; nine yards of fun fibers, tickets, holiday bags, alphabet stamps, assorted playing cards, note cards w/ envelopes and plain manila tags.  Also an envelope filled with fabric embellishing flowers.  (it just took me SO LONG to neatly place them in an envelope that I didn’t want to take them out (and then have to put them right back in!) for the picture!

Assorted new papers including; 6×6 and smaller sheets of handmade papers, new papers, scraps and bits, a few newly printed vintage style images and colored index cards.

LOTS of new acid/lignen free 6×6 sheets!

This item can be shipped in a flat rate priority envelope.  I have FIVE sets, all mostly the same, but some variances in paper designs.  I will be putting some other smaller paper packets in Sophie’s on-line marketplace, but probably not any more this gigantic.

Unique display for scrapbook supplies

This big ole ten drawer dresser has been sitting around in the shed for years!  Just couldn’t decide what to do with it;or even if it was worth trying to fix up.  Several of the drawer bottoms were DUCT TAPED together!  One side of the dresser had a huge gouge in it and I just couldn’t think of how to repair that.

See that big old gouge in the corner???

What we ended up doing is Michael just cut out that entire section and we ‘patched it’ with a piece of luan plywood.  You could see where it was patched even after I painted it, but you really don’t notice the sides of a dresser that much.

No knobs on most of the drawers either.  Michael replaced the bottoms of several of the drawers.  And the other side had several big dents in it that we had to fill with wood putty.

I decided to pair this dresser up with this hutch to create a step-back cupboard.

And here is the finished product, all filled with scrapbooking goodies!

Close up of the distressed drawer fronts.  I love the LOOK of the star shaped knobs, but I don’t think I’d use them again.  They are kind of sharp and ‘pokey’ whey you pull the drawer open.

Used clear glass jars to display lots of the scrapbooking supplies in.
