I did a tad of crafting today.
I got this idea from Nicole of http://canadiannickelscrapn.blogspot.com/2010/05/video-episode-21-fathers-day-wallet.html This is so cute.
I did mine a bit differently then hers. I saw a link that a lady made the paper look like leather.
What you do is dry emboss the paper. I only had a Fiskars embossing plate with this type of texture, I wish I would have had the cuttlebug one as I think they make a deeper embossing. Then you lighty rub your ink pad over the raised area to change the colour. Then do the same with Versa Mark, lastly emboss with clear embossing powder.
Pretty neat eh? I put a thin magnet on the closure and on the body of the wallet.
I did crochet a couple more butterflies tonight while watching "Zombieland". Love that movie. It has comedy and zombies, whats not to love teehee.
Went and looked for flooring for our camp/cottage. We found some low pile carpet, grabbed a few samples to see which colour looks best in the rooms. The sales guy was hilarious. The girls came with us and he focused on them and what he thought their personalities were like. He said Ashley knew what she wanted (she wanted wood tile) and didn't want to hear what he had to say. Kristy was the boss. Heather didn't care she just went with the flow.
He was trying to convince them that the carpet was the best and most affordable way to go in the camp. Wayne and I laughed, that was the high light of my day, that is kind of sad isn't it LOL.
I am so tired, guess I shouldn't have stayed up till 4:30am.
Hope your Saturday was a creative one.
