Favorite Finds: Doodlebug, Echo Park, Stkr.it QR Code Stickers
I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds from recent blog surfing, pictures from CHA and other email blasts I receive daily. First I cannot overlook the yummiest product I've seen in a while and that would be the DEVINE twine styled products that Doodlebug introduced recently. How cleaver that they'd come up with cardstock stickers that LOOK like you wrote with your twine. Yes, I have a slight obsession with twine. The image below doesn't show all the colors, but it gives you the general idea.
And who doesn't love the new collections of Echo Park? They release a couple of great holiday collections but I cannot pick which one I'd rather play with first...so I say just buy them all. And of course a BIG shout out to my girl, Kristine McKay. She designed their new Apothecary Emporium Halloween Collection. I think it's fab and will be well used this season!! Love me some Echo Park...how about you?
This has to be one of the coolest techie CRAFT idea I've seen in a long time. I've seen small little recorders you have to hide on your scrapbook layouts and cards, talking cards and ways to store a CD-Rom. But this has to be one of the coolest, hippest tech idea for scrapbooks.
You've probably seen these funky little bar code looking images on ads and products lately. They're called QR codes and most smart phones out there (and my iPad) have QR reader apps that you can download, scan these code images and it takes you to a website, youtube video, song, etc that is online. So imagine how cool it would be to record your baby saying "momma or dadda" and then scrapbook a cute picture of them and add one of these stickers. When you scan in the code after visiting the layout, you're taken to the recording or even better...a VIDEO. Awesome idea, don't you think?
Visit the write up on the Craft Critique or the Stkr.it Website to see a video on how these QR stickers work...sooooo cool!!
