Work Shop Wednesday # 2.....................Scrapbook Page/Booklet

It's Wednesday and time for another work shop. The work shop today is a scrapbook page/a little booklet too! I have found that this particular paper craft goes over very well for a baby shower gift. You make a scrapbook page all about baby and add a gift card inside. This is an excellent gift for a scrapbooker mom, that will not have a lot of time to scrap.

Tools you will need:
scoring tool
bone folder
paper trimmer

1.) score a 6in. score line down the center of a 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper, making four 6 in. squares.
2.) cut up to the center of one of those score lines.
fold as shown below. There you have a booklet.

3.) Open booklet and embellish as you would any other scrapbook page, not to overlap the scorelines. Now you have a scrapbook page.
4.)After embellishing your page, fold back into booklet form.
5.) Make sure you decorate and embellish the front cover, because that is your presentation.

This scrapbook page/booklet has a lot of potential. You are only limited to your imagination.

Like I said, this is a great gift for any occasion. Think new mom, 25th or 50th wedding anniversaries, birthday's, Christmas gift, and even a teacher would enjoy this. This would even be an excellent gift for those non scrappers, because this is something complete and all they have to do is show off the pictures.

Well as always, thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this project. Let me know what you think and if you tried making one. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Hugs to all! Brenda

It's Time for Pumpkins, Black Cats and Spiders

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is the second day into Fall. I love this time of year, when it starts getting cooler, the chrysanthemums are blooming and the pumpkins are out. I actually want to be outside more, this time of year. So in saying that, I thought I would make a set of Handmade Halloween cards.

These cute Halloween cards were so simple, I'll have a ton of these done in no time!

Well, that's all I've got to say today. Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to Have Fun!

Birthday Stash

Happy Sunday morning everyone! Today I have a handmade card to share with you that I made just last night. I was looking through my stash of cards and realized I was getting low on my Birthday Cards.

This is a pleating technique I have never done before. I have always loved seeing them on cards, but have never attempted to make one of these medallions.

I used my scor pal to put the pleats in the paper across the top and to make the pleats for the medallions I only used my scor pal for scoring my card base. I have never used it to make pleats. Don't ask me why! It's crazy I know! I have all these crafty tools and I never use them to their potential.

Like I've said many times before! I'm trying to get out of my box. I owe a lot of my venturing out of my box to my blogger friends. I see all of these beautiful things that you all have created and it makes me want to try and do it too! Thank you to all that have inspired me.

I wish you all a blessed Sunday. Thank you for stopping by. Hugs Brenda
