Back from CHA, that was fun! Projects to share too. :)


Hi there! I came back from CHA with lots and lots of inspiration. It was boatloads of fun meeting everybody that I have been fortunate enough to meet via various message boards and groups. It was also great to create tons of make n takes, and see all the fun new products. I am sure you have all read a gazzillion posts about the fabby new stuff, so I won't go into that again. :) I did promise to show you how I embellished my badge holder though, so here it is. 

Remember the first pic I shared?  ~


Here is my embellished portion ~


I had to include a flower and of course some sparklie danglies, and some rhinestones on the flowered ribbon.  :)  I added the wee little bee to the ribbon on the strap too. 

I have a few Zutter projects to share too.

The first one is a little notebook I made for myself. I want to jot down inspiring things I run across and save them. So here is my little mini ~


Here is the inside - just some lined notebook paper so I can scribble away.  :)

Here is my second project, a corkboard/keyholder for our camper.  We needed both things, so I combined them into one little hanging, 16" long by 8 " wide.  I found the CUTEST little camper stamps by Inkadinkadoo, just love them.  Here is a pic of my corkboard/keyholder ~
and a little closeup of the darling stamps on the bottom ~
I will take pics when it is hung in our camper, we did not get a chance to camp this weekend.  Hopefully next weekend! :)

My last project is an 8 x 8 min album I did for a very special teen volunteer.  I combined lots and lots of different manufacturers in this project.  I hope she likes it!
From the top (looks a little pinkish, is really more red)~



Some inside pics ~












I received some fun assorted old papers and things from a RAK from JulieAnn Shahinseveral months ago.  I loved the My Brilliant Ideas paper, I used it here (and the How I feel Today paper shown on a page above) THANKS JulieAnn!!! ~



Here is the back of the gift album ~


Well, that is it for this week.  I hope you all have a fabulous and creative week!  See ya next week, happy crafting ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
