Last Saturday was spent scrapping with my buddies for our early celebration of National Scrapbook Day. Officially, NSD is the first Saturday in May, but my friends and I always celebrate a bit early. It just works out better that way.
The party took place at my friend (and Creative Memories consultant) Susan’s house. I had the opportunity to go scrap on both Saturday and Sunday, but I had a prior commitment on Sunday. So I enjoyed my one day scrapping and tried to get as much done as possible. Besides scrapping, that included eating, laughing, earning tickets for door prizes and just joking around.
When I wasn’t eating or joking around I managed to finish seven pages and get them in my album. Want to see? ((I will tell you what Creative Memories paper I used in parentheses.))
The first pictures I scrap’d were from New Year’s Eve. This is my current favorite picture of Violet. It makes me want to hug her every time I see it. ((Simply Beautiful))
More New Year’s Eve photos. Mom came over and we all hung out eating popcorn and watching Babes in Toyland on Netflix. I had never seen that movie before. Keanu was unable to redeem it for me. I’m sorry, Keanu. ((Simply Beautiful))
Next up, a photo of my dog, Clover. Here I used a new border punch I bought on clearance last week. It turns out my friend, Danielle, over at Cozycakes Cottage bought the same punch last week! And she lives in California! Great minds think alike, I guess. ((Simply Beautiful))
Here is a pretty simple page. All I did was mat the photo and add a title strip. I used my craft knife to cut around some of the flower petals, then I slid the blue paper behind the petals. I was also enjoying using my tearing tools Saturday. So much easier than doing it freehand! ((Black & White, Simply Beautiful))
Time to scrapbook some photos of Violet’s apron! She was such a great model the day I took these pictures. How could I not put them in the album? ((Fabulous All Girl addition))
Back to bright colors. This is perfect paper to showcase my strawberry jam. ((Cheerful))
Finally! A) We got a measurable snowfall and B) this is my last page. ((Nancy O’Dell Hummingbird Series))
Seven pages in a day isn’t bad at all for me. I kept them pretty simple, because I would like to catch back up on this album. For every page I completed, I earned a ticket for a door prize. There were other ways to earn tickets as well and as it turns out… I WON!!!
Yippee!! I won a beautiful 12×12 coverset (album). I don’t have it in my hot little hands yet, but once I do I will show it to you.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my scrapbook pages. Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate all of my readers and I love hearing from you. So, what have you been up to lately? Done anything crafty? Working in the garden yet?
Tell me, tell me!
