Hey Look, I Scrapbooked!
It's finally happened...after working part-time at Wholly Scrap! and teaching there for about five years, I've given in. I'm going to start scrapbooking! Yes, I'm insane and have no idea where I'm going to find the time but I'm going to just take it slow and work on a month at a time. My January photos, which are mostly filled with a lots of snow and children with bright red cheeks, have already been printed and my supplies are ready to go...now to work on finding that extra time... Well before I get to those January photos, I needed to create a page for work. Wholly Scrap! has a fun Kit of the Month club where customers receive a package of goodies (usually cardstock, designer paper, maybe some ribbon or embellishments) at the beginning of each month. The following month they bring back whatever they created with their package of supplies. The store always provides a sample each month, this month I had a turn to use some wonderful Cosmo Cricket paper and die cuts to create the sample page. The paper line was geared towards Valentine's Day but since I pretty much love my two little bugs more than anything in the world I decided to create a page that focused on them and used sentiments that would work for a photo of them. One of the challenges is that I needed to use only what was in the KOTM package so no extra embellies! To create my own embellishments, I made paper buttons using different size circle punches and thread. They provided a fun accent! All of other supplies used on the page are from the Cosmo Cricket Hey Sugar paper line. Enjoy and if you live in the New England area (ME, MA, NH) stop by Wholly Scrap! and find out the details of the KOTM Club!
