film strip ALERT!

Enabler alert...
Hey! What are friends for?

Anyway...Daisy said the film strip ribbon has finally arrived.
Get it before it's gone.

I spoke with Advantus last week & they are already sold out for the second time...
the next batch won't arrive 'til the end of October...beginning of November...

Film strip ideas...

At CHA, tim used those little index photos under it...
perfect fit...one mini photo under each frame.

Here's my idea...

First thing I thought of when I saw the film strip for the first time...
eyeglasses for my art chick!

One staple from the tiny attacher...and you have...
perfect glasses!

It makes a great border on ANYTHING...
use it vertically or horizonally.

And, if you're looking for those cool type charms...
they are finally in stock too.

One more thing...
tim's GENIUS idea...

MASK SHEETS!

If you have a Cricut or other die cutting system...
These are blank adhesive sheets so you can cut your own masks & stencils.

Like I said...
what a simple idea...but pure genius!

I LOVE the possibilities...
make any size...any design...hand cut your own...draw anything...trace anything...I'm sure you get the idea...

I can't wait to play...but that will be AC...(after cruise!)

This ART blew me away.

It's Linda Elbourne's ...
acrylic binder for studio 490 stamps.

I'm in LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE the color...LOVE the design!

GREAT job Linda!



On the agenda for me today...

160 sheets of grungepaper ...
waiting to be stamped for.........??????????????

obviously...

make(ing) art!
wendy

ps...we'll get back to the Q&A's (AC)...I'm keeping a list of them!

Heavens above Mrs Vecchi you have made my day again ... Thank you sooooooooooooo much! The glasses look fabulous ... course I would have tried that if I had won the film strip *LOL*
I hope you are not over doing things with all this cruise stamping and stuff ... course if you need a holiday afterwards Wendy Vecchi mansion is very nice at this time of year ;0)
Finally ... Thank you everyone for the lovely comments about my binder ... the truth is I could never have done that without the inspiration included in each and every stamp and this fabulous blog XXX
