Three years ago, when I first started scrapbooking, my friends and I would browse eBay looking at all the amazing layouts and albums that were selling for sometimes hundreds of dollars. We couldn't imagine why people would pay so much when they could have the fun of making things themselves. Now that I have 2 kids - I know why! :) It's about time. There is never enough.
I started this paper bag album 2.5 years ago. I cut all the pages and ribbon, did all the inking. I just never found the time to glue in the pages and embellish them. So happy it is is done, and just as sweet as I originally imagined. :)
Winter has hardly had time to chill my bones, and I am already longing for Spring. I know most people get a running start with the new year, but for me new beginnings always come with Spring. The vibrant colors of this album brought a happy little reminder of all things being made new.
Sweet pink and cream - my daughter told me this week she likes pink again, not just purple. I need to get some pictures before this limited window closes!! ;)
This chipboard album is also part of my destashing. I finished the first 6 pages over a year ago, but just never found the right mojo to finish it until this week. It really turned out more beautiful than I thought it would. :)
The different shaped pages were novel when this originally came out, but now I am woefuly behind the times. :D
That tag is from Crate Paper. I love the momma bird leading the little ones. So sweet.
I hope you're inspired to go through your stash and complete an unfinished project. If you don't have any I'm sure there are quite a few of us that could spare one for you to work on. ;) Happy Scrapping. Dee2
