This course is offered to anyone and is about scrapbooking your home. It thought I would give it a try. I have added a link to Jane's blog . It's under the heading "my blogging friend" and is called Scrap Beginnings. So check it out.

Swap card # 1

I was in a card swap recently and this was one of the cards I received. This card was made by Kathy House. I really like the idea she had of using the embossing folder to make a design on part of the front and back. It really gives a beautiful effect.

Colours used here are so saffron, real red, marina mist & vanilla. Of course everything is from my favorite company, Stampin Up!!

Funny picture

I was outside taking some photos of my scrapbooking pages when I decided to take a photo of Lulu bathing herself in the sun. It wasn't until later that I noticed my cat peering through the door spying on us. I just thought it looked funny. Thanks for stopping by.

My Crafty Sister

This is my sister Amy. Her son Taren's binder for school fell apart and instead of buying him a new one, she decided to create a fun binder that he would love. I think it turned out very cool.

So what Amy did here was take the binder apart. She took off the front and back & kept the middle part with the metal rings and also the cardboard front and back . With the cardboard she cut out different skateboarding words & images and modgepodged them to the cardboard. One picture here shows some photos I took of Taren. My Olympus camera has a feature called drawing. It's where you take a picture of someone and it creates a drawing of them. That is what Amy used to put on the front of the binder.

After modgepodging everything, Amy used duct tape to assemble everything back together. Lucky Uncle Richard had some red duct tape which went so well with all the images.

I think this was a fun clever project Amy created and Taren loved it.
