Young BUDDING Scrapbooking Enthusiast

LYNN is a little 9 year-old girl in my church. Last week she very excitedly showed me this scrap page she had done as a front cover for her diary. When I saw this, I thought " O WOW! She's got potential!!"
NOboDy taught her. She just created this page all on her own!
She has the main paper down the center and 2 strips of ribbons to act as a border.
 FLOWER EMBELLISHMENTS/stickers at opposite ends (good balance) and tips of the corner (small flower upper and bigger flower lower!!).
Sticker alphabets for the Title and a picture photo with netting as the matting and 3D effect!! INSTINCTIVE Scrapper... this little one! (can you see why I'm aMaZED?!!)

I love your instinctive approach to creativity LYNN! GOOD JOB!!

My Easel Card- Postcard Size

this is my version of the easel card.
The EASEL Card is usually done in the 6x6" size... squarish and hmmmm..... not the regular postage size, so postage will cost more.
I wanted something more regular and easier to get out to the post, so here's my take on it....
I didn't put 3D flowers or pop-up embellies as I haven't thought of a way to send those in the mail without squishing them.... hmmmm..... think......

MY FIRST (sketch) Card

It's been a long while since I've made cards. I tried working on some last week, but everything just didn't look right... I tore up about 5 cards and was feeling rather discouraged......

Today, I was at Adeline's blog and saw the challenge from Card Patterns... and made this simple card. Perhaps I should just start simple and work from there.... Card Patterns is also a great place to start my card making creative juices flowing again..... fingers crossed!!!

Card created using this week’s sketch #107 from Card Patterns.
1. Penny Black's Butterfly Bear stamp
2. Stampin Up Whimsical Words stamp
3. Paper from Spotlight
4. EK Dotted Scalloped punch
5. Ribbon and Button from stash
6. Spellbinder dies ; Labels 2 and Classic Scalloped Oval Large

I first saw this Tri-Shutter Mini Album (a variation of the Tri-Shutter card) on You-Tube made by Andrea Walford. It is a wonderful idea and so pretty!

I had a great time figuring out how it's done and made one about a month ago. I think I do have a short attention span problem….. after pasting the patterned paper onto each section and decorating the front… I ummm… lost interest….. Left it in the TTDL (things-to-do LATER) file and well just blank-blank…. no more mojo!

Last week a dear friend and her DD was going through a really rough time and while lending a listening ear is what I do most, I felt I needed to do a bit more to cheer them up a little. I made the album into a family scrapbook, included bible verses and pretty embellishments. I hope it will be enjoyed and a source of encouragement to them.
