BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve ! We're already at the final weekend of July which is hard to believe. I've really enjoyed what has clearly become a more widespread tradition of Christmas in July and now I need to start acting on some of the great ideas I've seen but my creating time has again been limited by the realities of life. This was supposed to be the year that I got my "act" together and focused on branding but "life is what happens when you're busy making other plans". 

Lots of great ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! 

If you don't have a lightbox in your tools, then you should! Years ago I had a really bulky one but they are so sleek and slim now and my next "treat myself" will be the newest one from Cricut which is the cordless Bright Pad. They're invaluable for everything from tracing, to weeding vinyl to as An Artful Mom showed in her post, using for hand lettering. Perfect for cardmaking or home decor! 

Got scraps? Paper scraps, ribbon scraps, fabric scraps, fiber scraps? Check out what Fresh Vintage by Lisa S did with a bunch of her with these wonderful Paper Snippet Rolls! I've seen similar ones at vintage shops and craft fairs (in the before times pre-pandemic!) and they can get pricey so I love the idea of making your own and goodness knows, I have all the materials! 

If you're looking for inspiration for a bedroom makeover, look no further than this beautiful one from The House on Silverado. So elegant and beautiful! 

Finally, if you're like me, the best part of a muffin is the top! So these Chocolate Fudge Muffin Top Cookies from Cindy's Online Recipe Box are just perfection! 

OK Creative Peeps...let's see what you've been up to this week!

It's hard to believe July's already basically over! As always, thanks for hosting us again! I brought by some Caramelized Banana Ice Cream to help keep the heat at bay. :)

Sweet Carol!
Thank you for another inspiring party! I appreciate all you do for us each week. I'm so glad you liked my snippet rolls. You gave me an awesome idea!
I never thought of selling them at the craft fairs. If we have any this year I'm going to do it! I think I'll make some Christmas Snippets :) Great idea!
Have a wonderful week!
