INKLING: Ephemera, Origami & Rice Paper {fusion}

Ephemera Cards via homework | carolynshomework.comIf you’re a scrapbooker or paper crafter, you probably know what ephemera is. They’re bits of paper typically used in paper crafting. The actual definition is: things that are important or useful for only a short time: items that were not meant to have lasting value:  paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. I love these pretty little bits of book pages and other tidbits.

Inkling: Inspiring Notebook Round Up

Blog Notebook Round Up CollageIt’s back to school time and that means it’s time for school supplies. I always loved getting brand new school supplies.

Now a days, you can buy notebooks with pretty designs but it’s so much more fun to diy! Here’s a round up of some beautiful and inspiring notebooks.

Inkling: paper mache confetti bowl

Confetti Bowl 7I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s very hard for me to throw away scraps of paper. I wouldn’t exactly classify it as hoarding but it could become a problem if I don’t use up the bits and pieces. This bowl wasn’t made out of paper scraps but paper catalogs. When I attended CHA in January, I came home with a lot of catalogs. The paper catalogs have pages and pages of pictures of pretty paper. How could I throw those away?
