    OMG that would be awesome to make those for the library. Or is that like a travesty to a librarian?

    Well, I was once going to tear pages out of books to use as a background on a bulletin board and the director said she wasn't sure that was a great idea, but she's kinda used to me doing what I want so I think it'll be okay. I'll buy the books from their sale cart so the library will benefit from it. Win win, right?

    Yes do! I love scrapbooking. Done by others, that is. It's so cute and looks too tedious for me.

    it is cute, but it takes a long time to make it, and it can get expensive.

    Yeah, that's part of the reason I never got into it. You can really wrap a lot of money up in that stuff.

    i always look for the 1/2 specials from Hobby Lobby on the paper. I try to avoid the fancy scrapbook places bc their paper is usually more expensive, most of the time. i get the paper when i get the idea in my head of how im going make the page, then wait to buy the other accessories and stuff when i start to make it. i also got to keep a lot of stuff from when i made marketing stuff (goodie bags, marketing bags, etc) for places i worked at, so i have a big box of card stock, ribbons, raffia and stuff that i can use for the pages.

    Oh, DS those bulletin boards are awesome! I used to do those where I worked - I always thought it was fun while my co-workers just looked on it as extra work.

    Dollar Tree has some cute scrapbooking stuff but the trick is to buy it when you see it there because you never know if they will get it again. They carried the clear plastic page protectors for the longest time 12 of them for $1 but I haven't seen them there in forever. They had papers and the 3D foam adhesive dots, too.

    Thanks. It is fun. Nobody had touched the bulletin boards in the library for months and months before I started doing them. I wish I was more creative. I steal most of my ideas from the internet. Okay, all of my ideas.

    Why are you guys asking if you can post your crafty stuff in here... stop being lame and post

    DS, those boards are cute!

    OA, yeah its scrapbook paper

    I'll take a pic of my craft area soon, I moved it... and since I think it was in the other craft thread the old pics gone anyway.
    My craft stuff consumes a lot of areas in my place... maybe I'll take pics to show you guys how crazy I am :D
