I don't normally take online classes, in fact I have only taken one and I wasn't that impressed so I have been really hesitant on taking another one. When I saw that Shannon Tidwell was creating an online class I decided I would give the online class thing another go and am I glad I did.
I have only watched the first video and all ready I am completely inspired! I created this layout in about an hour which is huge for me as I am usually a pretty slow scrapper. I would encourage anyone who wants to get inspired to check out her "Sassy Scrapbooking" class from Two Peas In A Bucket.
Here is the layout I was inspired to create.
I can't wait to finish watching the videos and get more inspiration!
Mother's Day is just around the corner and I thought I better get busy making a card for my Mom and my Mother In Law.
Here's one I made with some Echo Park and Hambly Paper. I love the silhouette paper from Hambly, they look like little cameos, so I cut one out and used it as the focal point for my card. I wanted to keep it fairly simple so I added just a few details like the ribbon and scallop border.
I made this layout for a challenge at a scrappy website. The challenge was to scrap an old photo and a new photo. I decided to do one of my son, kind of a look back then to now. The first photo is when he was about 3, one of my favorite photos of him, and one from now. He hasn;t changed much in these last few years. Still crazy, funny, charming, loveable, cool, handsome and talkative.
I used some My Minds Eye papers and misting for this one.
And of course some buttons. I misted a spot for each button to go to make them stand out more.
an adventure! I can attest to that lol. I wanted to make a card for a grad that spoke of enjoying the journey that is about to happen in their life. I used some old Making Memories travel themed paper and stamps (I am not a stamper by any stretch of the imagination) but I love how it turned out.
I made the inside of the card from the same paper and added the rest of the sentiment there.
