Fun Finds on Friday

Fridays.
Oh, how I like them.
So how about some Fun Finds to kick of the weekend with?
OK. Let's get on with the show.

Fun Find #1
Feeling like getting crafty this weekend? How about making mini book like this one Janna Werner shared on the American Crafts blog?


Check out Janna's post to see how she made it by mixing together cards, paper, envelopes and a few other random supplies. It's super impressive and looks like it would be fun to try to make one like it. 

Fun Find #2
Did you know you can make your own chevron pattern with a square punch? 
Audrey Pettit showed how you could over on the blog for BasicGrey the other day.


Rush on over to Audrey's post for the how-to. And consider yourself warned: You are going to want to try it. 

Fun Find #3


Die-cut a few of these shapes out. Put them on sticks. And you've got a great set of photo props to use at your next party.

Fun Find #4
There are cards and then there are cards just make you break out in a big smile!
This one from Paper Smooches designer JJ Bolton is one of the latter.


Seriously, how fun is that?! High 5, JJ! 

Fun Find #5
Did you see Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine just added another Go-to Gal to the team? Laina Lamb has some seriously mad scrapbooking skills and is a graphic designer by trade. And she's nice as nice can be. 

Go here to meet her.

That's it for this week's Fun Finds.
Wait! How about some blog candy? Leave a comment for me on this post by midnight on Monday, March 24th. I'll pick one of you to win a small surprise prize from my prize drawer of crafty goodness. 

Fridays rock and so do you,
Teri
