About a month ago I went to Joann’s with my mom to shop for lining for curtains we made. We took a number to have it cut and I took a stroll down the scrapbook isle to kill time. I found an Amy Butler scrapbook line and almost screamed with glee when I found a beautiful 8×8 scrapbook on the shelf. Did my eyes deceive me? Could this be so? I knew that my scrapbook stash would soon be growing. I took a look at the $27- price tag and my list of scrapbook projects fluttered away. Needless to say, I left empty handed, went home, and took out my Amy Butler FABRIC STASH instead. As usual, I ended up folding it up and put it away. I still haven’t found the right projects for those yet.
Two weeks ago my sister and I went to Big Lots for God knows what and lo and behold, God does answer prayers. I saw it at a glance but knew in an instant what it was. The very Amy Butler scrapbook from Joann’s sat on the Big Lots shelf under a stack of off brand cardstock. I scooped it up and called for my sister, “Q!!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS?????” I looked for any others sitting on the shelf to verify the price was right but it was the ONLY one. SIX DOLLARS!!!
I am a happy gal.This scrapbook is just for me and all about me & my craft projects. I’d like to have a place to archive my craft happiness.
I started the pages friday at scrapbook club. The pic on the left is the title page. Didn’t realize until I scanned it in that the letters in ‘amy’ are all wonky. The pic on the right is the second page. I need to take and print out the pic of the purse I made at STITCH LAB in my Sewing 1 class. I am so proud of that class and love that the motif of the printed paper matches the print of my purse. I’ve received a lot of compliments on the purse. The 2 I am most proud of are compliments from 2 fabric shop owners.
