Sometimes in your life things just get too busy or too
stressful OR both! Then even in the
snippets of time that are available I do not have the creative energy to start
the process of crafting. In all
honesty that is how life has been for me over the last nine months. In the last two weeks I am happy to
report that my creative mojo has been resurrected and I’ve been crafting up a
storm. In the interim I did make a
few cards for a project I am working on for a friend, which I will share in the
next few weeks.
I finished a few pages that I started many months ago. I am practicing using up my stash and
being resourceful with what is in my hoard of scrappy supplies! I am a “This is what happened” kind of
scrapper who enjoys preserving memories of events.
We joined my sister and her family for an annual outing to a
local ski resort. My mother was
there as well and I had well over 500 photos to choose from for ONE day of
skiing! So I went with photo
collages to get as many photos as I could on a two-page layout. (Another trend I seem to always fall to
for my style!) I printed 8 x 10 and 8 x 12 from Costco to make putting these pages together go much more quickly.
The first one is for our daughter:
The flocked snowflake paper was made by heidi grace designs, the snowflake edger punch is by Martha Stewart Crafts.
This is for our older son:
The snowflake paper is from my stash, the stickers were Sandy Lion, and the title is a Creative Memories. I am quite satisfied to be using up things in my stash!
And finally for the younger son:
Another stash paper, the snowflake pattern is Provo Craft, the stickers are DCWV, and the title is Creative Memories.
