Scrap Rat and The Studio

Growing up I was often referred to as a studio rat, which is a dancer who practically lives at the dance studio with all her classes and rehearsals.  I loved every minute of it!  Now I'm blessed to be a different kind of rat - a Scrap Rat.  What is a scrap rat, you ask?  One of Amanda's designers, of course!

Scrap Rat is Amanda Jones' new online store and Etsy shop.  You will not believe the incredible treasure trove it is - vintage playing cards, papers, school work, typewriter words, canvas tags, vintage stamps, match boxes, book covers and pages, buttons....  The package that arrived on my doorstep practically blew me away and I comb through its contents almost every time I go into my scrap room, just to imagine and be inspired.  Amanda is having an opening sale, so please take a look.  You will NOT be disappointed.

I will be posting projects I create with Scrap Rat products both here and on the Scrap Rat blog.  You will also want to follow fellow designer Lisa's blog, as well as Amanda's.

Speaking of Amanda , The Studio is her lovely challenge site and the sponsor for September is Scrap Rat!  I am so happy to be unpacked enough to start playing along again because today's challenge is a GREAT one: Fairy tale challenge! This week I challenge you to scrapbook a perfect day... that hasn't happened yet! If you could spend a day doing anything, what would it be? 

I had fun with my scrap drawer, cut and glittered free-hand clouds, and wrote stream-of-consciousness journaling :).  I made the yellow ombre flower out of wired ribbon - so easy and I love the effect!

So please join Amanda at The Studio and Scrap Rat.  We would love to see you in both places! Have a wonderful Sunday!
