Hiya All! Welcome to Time for a Party. It’s International Craft Day today. I have party features from Dubai, Russia and the USA for you.
Top Tips for Scrapbooking
Fine Craft Features
Best in Party – blogs
I am featuring 4 tips for scrapbooking artists today. Tomorrow I will feature another one of you as part of an article I am writing to revamp an old sofa. And next week, I will be featuring one of you as part of my sewing for Winter collection.
I aim to feature as many of you as possible – wherever you fit in!
Book Art as Beautiful Home Décor Accents
The first feature is by Di from ExtraOrdinary Day. This all-American woman is a fab home decorator, a second-to-none paper crafter / scrapbooking artist, and also becoming a dear blogging friend.
I want to feature not one but two related scrapbooking projects by Di that are sure to inspire you: paperback book pumpkins and paperback book Christmas trees. Both book art projects are equally stunning and in essence uses the same techniques: folding over book pages!
But…. there are some tricks to the trade that Di will show you to make your projects extra-ordinary, so hop over to her blog and find out more.
Truly beautiful scrapbooking projects!
How to set up a Craft Booth in a Fair
A different kind of tip for scrapbooking here.
This is a tutorial that many of us could use, particularly with the Christmas season coming up and all the art and craft fairs at that period of time.
Her photos and advice is particularly useful for those working in the field of kids crafts, but all scrapbooking artists can benefit.
The most fun and the most I have learned at art fairs here in London was at inter-active booths like the one described here. So, can can vouch for what she says to be true and to make sense. Nuash features to-do lists as well as to-bring lists.
By Naush from Doodle Buddies
“Love. By Olga, from Russia.”
But … not what you think. I am saying that tongue in cheek, as it’s time we overcome stereotypes and start thinking honorably about all people in the world.
This Olga is an original artist in both cross stitching and scrapbooking. She makes beautiful projects, simple. Like this notebook.
I just love her ability to mix and match her two hobbies and cover this notebook first with a romantic striped denim fabric. And then, embellish it with a hand-stitched scalloped label, which was touched with some golden ink at the edges to make it blend it with the background.

Time for a Party
And now, it’s time for a new party. Let’s link up and show us what you have been working on! Please link back to the party, preferably from the page you linked up. Whoohoo. Let’s party.
If you want to see what I have been working on: a beautiful black triangle scarf. I am transforming a basic women’s fashion accessory into 10 different styles. Watch me do it!
