What it didn't supply was key ideas like:
use black and white checker board!
imitate the Miami Vice font!
USE THE ACTUAL STUFF2SCRAP CHIPBOARD YOU JUST BOUGHT DUMMY!!!!
Those only occured to me AFTER I saw the finished page and realized- This is like totally 80's dude!! RAAAD!
Stuff 2 Scrap challenge. Thanks for urging me on Chantal!!
Let me just tell you I LOVE Australian scrapbook design. What is UP with all the fantastic chipboard from down under??? And WHY hasn't any major American outlet picked up on how FABULOUS they are and started importing it?
Here are some of my faves:
- Stuff 2 Scrap- incredibly innovative and unique designs. HUGE plus? Stuff by artist Leeann Pearce.
- Dusty Attic- fabulous romantic and shabby chic styles used by some of my most favorite designers Natasha Naranjo Aguirre, Jolaine Frias, Finnabair (Anna Dabrowska) and Mandy Harrel- a fellow Punky Scraper who (THIS IS KEY) sells many designs on her ETSY SHOP.
- Scrap FX- cooooool modern designs.
- Buzz and Bloom (now out of business- I could cry!)
Go ahead and SALIVATE!!! All of these brands are hard to get. Mostly because shipping charges are so expensive but if you are a paper freak like me you SUCK IT UP and get the stuff through Ebay, Etsy or directly from the website- shipping prices BE DAMNED!
I wouldn't wait for Dusty Attic to get back to you. I'm still waiting for a reply to an email I sent LAST SUMMER regarding a large order I wanted to place. Oh well.
Stuff2Scrap, Mandy or Leann (she's got an Etsy shop as well) love you so go to them and buy, Buy, BUY! hee hee hee.

Yes that is reading material in her hand. LOOOOL!
