With out any further is my scrap projects for you. The first is a birthday card for my cousin Amy who will be 35 in 4 days......Happy Birthday AA!! This was the perfect opportunity to use up some scraps!! I don't know about you but i think i have more scraps than my fair share and i DO try to use them every chance i get. I had a 71/2 inch circle that i cut using the plantin schoolbook cart the wrong size for another project and the rest just fell into place.
papers: colorbok and s.e.i
stamp: stampin up
71/2 in green circle: plantin schoolbook cart
31/2 scalloped circle: celebrations cart
buttons: my stash
re purposed party picks from last friday night
The next project i have today is a page for my wedding scrapbook. My husband and i got remarried in 2008 and yes i am still working on the album!! This turned out to be one of my favorite pages...... my wedding ring broke the first time we were married and he supprised me at our second wedding by having it all fixed and putting it on for me....LOVE HIM!!! I wanted to keep it simple but yet soooo pretty. The ribbon and the edging papers were scraps for another project and of course i keep everything!! I tried something different with the center picture and i think it came out so nice.
papers: s.e.i and autumn leaves
brads and ribbon: my stash
vellumn sentiments: leftovers
