Well today was National Scrapbook day, I had loads planned and what did I manage to get done all day?
I tell you - One card!! Why?
I had both my Daughter Sarah and 2 of my DIL's round to scrap, one of my DIL's; Karen is a very accomplished Scrapbooker but Marie has never done anything like this before, my Daughter has made a couple of things but is still very much a novice.
They both ended the day having finished a complete project so both were very happy, I on the other hand got nothing done as I was showing my DIL how to make this based on the one I made the other day
Marie wanted to make this after seeing Sarah's, she has used photo's of her 2 Sons.
At the same time both Karen and I helped Sarah to make these
These have been made into the cheap Ikea photo frames that cost about £1-00 for 3, from the angle I have taken the pictures you cant actually see they are in frames.
Sarah has used the photo's from her make over we got her for her 14th Birthday.
But I did manage to get this made once they had all gone home
This is for today's challenge on 365 Cards where we had to use 8 Flowers, I have made this using the green flowered paper, printed the sentiment which reads
A Mothers treasure is her Daughter
This was cut out using my nestabilities and I cut a larger circle in Pink to add the sentiment on to, I added a green ribbon and 8 different flowers, even though some are layered I still have 8 different ones.
This also covers the challenge at the Use it blog which is to use
Flowers - which I have
Fibres - which I have
Metal -which are the brads
Tool you dont often use- I used my old paper trimmer, I normally cut everything with a craft knife and a ruler.
A card to honour an important woman in your life - this is for my daughter.
Lastly it is for the challenge at the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge who want us to use Flowers on our cards, starting to see a pattern here!
An eventful day even if I didnt get alot done, have you done anything for NSD?
