I fall in love about once a week. With Etsy. This fabulous site provides a feast of creativity for the eyes. Running low on mojo? Spend half an hour cruising Etsy and something is sure to spark an idea.
I like to enter in a random word and see what happens next. This week, I typed "lemondrop" and a totally cool clock popped up. Designer 1. by. Liz uses recycled bike parts and reclaimed textiles to create the cutest clocks ever. Take a peek.
The honeycomb flower one? Made of recycled tennis shoe material. Fabulous! I love the metal against the bright colors. And the sharply "scalloped" circles. And, of course, the use of an object in a totally different way.
What do you see and love? Let these cool clocks inspire you to create and link us back by midnight on Thursday. On Friday, we will select a winner and send that scrapper a prize. Digital and paper are both welcome.

Wednesday and time for a little treat courtesy of Scrapstreet Digital Design team. Sue Wood Designs has made this colorful sticker alpha for your scrapbooking. Large size png files can be resized to suit your layout. You can print them with confidence and then cut them out to use on your hybrid projects. Printed on a light card is best, and leave the white edge to them, this is most useful if you can't always cut as carefully as you would like. Try curling the edges both digitally and as paper scrapping alphas. the effect is plain but very effective.
You could even change the interior color by using the marquee tool and clicking on the colored centre then make a layer above and fill wit a color to suit yourself and your layout, use it any way you like except commercially.
Have fun with this alpha
