14th Scrappy Saturdays

* Next Online Crop - Friday, June 4th at 8pm MST - Tuesday, June 8th at 11:59 pm MST. RSVP on Facebook. **Invite a friend and if they participate, you automatically will get a prize! Your friend just has to leave a comment saying that you invited them.**
Some prizes so far for my June Online Crop (see my events). Prizes - Scrapbook Consulting from Memories by Christine, Code for a FREE 8x8 Shutterfly photo book, Code for 12 FREE Greeting Cards also from Shutterfly.
I SOLD my first item at a local boutique that I have my items at - Brittany Rae Boutique. Excited! The owner said that everyone thinks that my stuff is just all decorations so they don't think it's on sale. If you saw this display (this is only part of my display), would you think it was just part of the decor? How can I make it more sellable?

Link up your scrapbook projects - doesn't just have to be layouts for Scrappy Saturdays! You have until Thursday, May 27th to link up your scrapbook projects. (I decided to do that since Saturdays are busy days for people to spend time with family and get errands done.) Then on Friday, May 28th, I'll do a post sharing my favorites from Scrappy Saturday- Friday Favorites!

Here are my scrapbook projects that I've been working on: Scrappy Canvases

Paisley Canvas
I used some scrap pieces I had that were about 1/2 in. thick.

Twilight Inspired Canvas
Remember that Twilight Inspired Notebook, well someone wanted it for a canvas that they won - very similar. I had to switch the black flower paper and the diamond paper to use some scraps I had instead though.

I took elements from each of the 4 book covers.
Twilight: rhinestones for the "apple" - didn't have the right apple
New Moon: black "flower" paper
Eclipse: "ribbon"- that was easy =D
Breaking Dawn: diamond paper to remind of the "chess board"

Ribbon Pink Canvas
It's hard to tell, but the bottom ribbon is layered over the top of the word Memories and a couple of pink rhinestones. I love the effect. This was for another giveaway winner.

Adorable canvases, I always like the variety you do. I don't know what to suggest for that display. It does look super pretty, maybe people are afraid to touch and look at them. Could you add a discrete little sign to one side with prices on it?

I like the Twilight canvas (bet yu didn't see THAT one coming)....I love that it represents all the books!
What about a really cute, scrappy sign in the middle of the shelves hanging from a ribbon, or resting on a ledge listing the prices like "boxes price" "12x12 canvases are $"

What a darling blog you have.

I hope that you will stop by and enter my giveaway.

What if you made your scrappy gifts signage more prominent? Like make a banner style sign and affix it to the back of the cubicle area. Also, could you tier your items? Like on the boxes, could you hang them off of cuphooks or those command adhesive strips? Also I would make your pricing more upfront, as in maybe a cute price tag on each individual item as opposed to a general sign? The pricing signs kinda get lost in the background and aren't really front and center. Also maybe you could get some decorative items to help bulk up the area, like a vintage camera, a floral display or some mirrors to help reflect light?

Cute stuff. I know what you mean about selling... I have a ton of stuff in my closet that just won't sell, I'm ready just to give it all away so I don't have to look at it anymore.
