On my work desk today - after I unburied it from my son's art homework are some cards I made for my previous Trash to Treasure post. There is a 'how to' video if you care to know more and if you like the cards then please leave me a comment on that post as I will be drawing a winner on my next Trash to Treasure Post.
This morning I was putting away a couple of layouts and stopped to have a look at one of my first ever scrapbook albums. Although we make these pages to record and preserve our family memories it is funny how they also become a history of scrapbook products too!! This one has mulberry paper on it, pre cut Christmas trees well before the popularity of Cricut or Spellbinders! I remember printing my text onto vellum as I definitely wasn't ready to show my handwriting to the world back then and the title was reverse printed on my computer and then hand cut! A real labour of love. I even made the ski embellishments and pencilled in the ski tracks!
What about the papers we bought way back then too!!!! A bit like the fashions we wore back in the day too!!! Ripping and tearing was in I see from this layout and I remember buying sheets of printed letters ( I probably still have the rest of the sheet somewhere in this room. I made pockets from the paper - In fact as I look at my pages I made a lot of my embellishments in the early days and I haven't lost my love of doing that.
Hope you are all having a fun day and I am off now to desk hop for a while so see you soon. If you happen this way on a Wednesday and haven't heard of WOYWW then follow this link to find out more.
