I’ve been playing with paper a little bit lately.
This is my latest scrapbook page.
My local scrapbook store is a newsagent that has some craft supplies, so I don’t have access to lots and lots of embellishments – they have some nice stuff, but it’s a limited range. I made the flags by hand using some letter stamps and the ‘rope’ is some spare handspun.
I may have mentioned before that my Step-mother-in-law makes beautiful cards. When we visited them last I dug though her card scraps and stamped off a whole bunch of images which I popped into an envelope and brought back to South Africa with me. I’ve been using these bits and pieces to make cards. Last weekend the card bug really bit.
Images from SMIL’s collection patterned paper is scraps left over from scrapbooking.
The photo on this card is one of Gorgeous Man’s rejects.
It would seem I was on a ‘manly’ themed card kick.
It was lovely to use up all those small bits of scrap booking paper that I had lying around.
This card uses a page from an old book I’m deconstructing.
Finally, this is an image from a 2007 calendar that was given to me by a friend.
And that’s not the oldest paper in the stash. Last week I made bookmarks from my 2006 diary. The illustrated pages were old maps – very cool. No pictures of the bookmarks though as they are all in use.
