Addicted to Scrapbooking

Yes I am. I love everything about this hobby of ours. When I am away from my stash and workspace...I am thinking about it and wishing it were nearby. Even on vacation.

Here's something new that I am now a huge fan of, Creative Imaginations "Real Wood". It is sold in sheets like cardstock, but it is extra thin wood veneer. It is beautiful and it cuts like paper and you can use your punches on it. Pretty cool. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and it really was no different than punching out paper.

I also used the Real Wood with My Epiphany Crafts Button Studio. EC Button Studio is a small tool that punches a shape and affixes a clear button over the shape all in one step. I am loving this tool. I really like the woodgrain buttons!

Remember this lay out?

It could be your ticket to winning a whole spool of May Arts Ribbon. Your choice of ribbon.
They are selecting a few new blog contributors and want to know what you think. They would like for you to choose your favorite tutorials from those submitted. They will pick the ribbon spool winner from the comments.
That's it, check out all the tutorials HERE and leave a comment for your favorites. You'll see that mine is # 15 and my sweet friend Lexi #4 made my favorite tutorial, it is a skirt made from a vintage pillowcase.
Thanks for all your support!
