Lots of wedding project pics, Bind-It-All Priojects, Mini albums, ATCs, and my Guest Artist info!

Happy Labor Day Weekend to all my US friends!  Hope you are enjoying beautiful weather and relaxing.  I have been working on more wedding projects, I have some mini album pics to share, and I want to link you up to my guest artist post.  First, I am so excited and honored to be a guest artist on Scrapbook News And Review, an awesome ezine featuring not only scrappy stuff, but all sorts of creative paper crafting goodness.  There are some peeps with mad skills over there, and they are AMAZINGLY generous with their time and talent.  Lots of fabulous tutorials on mixed media art, as well as things like ATCs, inchies, cards, and more.  Please check out my tutorial beginning Monday September 6.  I have a chance for you to win a little blog candy if you do.  :)  More about that in a minute.  First, I am going to start off with some minis and projects I did for September using my Bind-It-All (make sure you go check out the Bind-It-All blog, besides fab tutorials and pics, OZZ DT Jennifer Priest is doing a fun give-a-way!!! WOO HOO!!!).  I posted a wee sneak peek of a mini I made last week.  Here is a full pic ~

Here are a few pics of the inside (I used the super page protectors and Bamboo Spine Cover-All by Zutter, you can't believe how easy it is to work with these products, and how fantastic they look when you are done, the pics really do not do them justice at ALL)~

In the back of the book I added several blank pages.  This was the area for everyone to write their well wishes to the happy couple.  Later they will send an email with one of their fav recipes to share with the newlyweds ~
My next project was an ATC holder.  I used the fun Display-It-All and more of the faboo Page Protectors, now I can see both sides of each ATC, or change them out quickly and easily if I wish)~

Last in my September projects is a little Fall Wallhanging, using the oh-so-fab canvas artboard ~
I have enjoyed tinkering with the silk flowers, and decided to incorporate one of the little fall picks into a wall hanging.
Now for some wedding project pics.  Remember this pic? ~

Well, I finally had a chance to finish up those tabletop arrangements (30 in all).  Here are a few pics (please ignore my oh-so-stained work table)~
Of course the arrangements will look so much nicer on the table topper and tablerunner.  Remeber this pic? ~

I have been working on the flower girl baskets too, I will share a little tutorial next week on how they went from this  ~
to something a lot prettier.  :)  I will also share what I added to this to make it a bit more wedding sparkle-ish~
OK, thanks for reading this far!  I told you there would be blog candy, so here are the deets.  Please go to Scrapbook News and Reviews between September 6 - 12, and read my guest artist post.  I have a tutorial showing you how I created a beautiful card with a twist.  I also posted pics of other projects I have made, featuring some of my favorite things - fabric, texture, and sparkle. Here is a sneak peek example of one of the things I posted about, some ATCs I made for a swap at Red Lead (they have the COOLEST vintage stuff ever, including stamps, collage sheets, and trinkets!) ~
Please leave a comment here with your favorite item listed in my Guest Artist Tutorial, and sign up to be a follower of my blog.  Already a follower?  Super!  If so, just leave a comment on this post with your fav item in my Guest Artist Post at Scrapbook News and Reviews.  You will be entered in a drawing for some fun blog candy (2 bookmarks, an ATC, some bling, 3 mini fall stamps and a mini acrylic block) ~

Alrighty then?  Easy peasy! 
Thank you for hanging out at my blog today.  I can't wait to see what your fav project is that I have posted in my Guest Artist Post at Scrapbook News and Reviews!

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!
