Back to Scarpbooking

RIMG5631, originally uploaded by Bio-hazar.

I had a great time on Friday night when some friends came around and we scrapped together. I managed to do this LO of my Great Grandfathers Clog dance group the Eight Lancashire Lads. It was done using Stampin' Up cardstock and Basic Grey Mellow Taper paper. The title was cut using a Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet dies and matted on cardstock. The LO was finished off with ribbon and brads. It took a long time to get back into doing scrapbooking, and although this is a simple LO it wasn't quick to produce. Must have been all the cutting out of the title. In the time it took me to do this one, my friend did 3 LOs.

Earlier in the year I also did this LO of my Mom as a young child. It was done using Bazzill swiss dots cardstock and My Minds Eye BellaBella Bellezo paper and Basic Grey Blush collection paper, felt letter stickers, fabric flowers, brads, ribbon and Hero Arts stamps for the journling. The design was based on a layout in a Scrapbook Trends magazine.

Happy Mother's Day

Today in the UK it's Mother's Day, so I've made this card for my Mother-in-law. Hope she likes it as there is not much blue in it, but her gift is blue so I'm sure it will be OK. LOL My mom will have to wait till May for her card as that's when Mother's day is in Canada.

I've used scraps of different papers I had left over and a free downloaded image that I coloured in with ProMarkers. It was finished with some ribbon and a felt hand stitched heart.
