My lovely friend Lorna who is sadly not a crafter (I'm trying my best to convert her!!) asked me to help her to make a scrapbook for her Dad's birthday. We started it the other night and only managed to get three pages done - but here they are!!
On the front page we used paper from Craftwork Cards Fruit Scoop collection, orange card candies, 'Happy Birthday' peel offs and some felt number stickers. We also used this 'family' embellishment which came in a set of 'dipsticks'.
For the second page there was a photo of her Dad in a Mickey Mouse t shirt which she thought was very funny! We used paper from Craftwork Cards again and backed the photo and text onto glitter card. We added some gem stickers into the corners of the backing of the photo and some edge peel offs around the text.
Finally we found a Mickey Mouse image online to use.
For the third photo was a photo of her Dad with a cat.
We used the same Craftwork Cards paper and glitter card. I tied two pieces of twine together and knotted it to decorate the border of the photo. I also used some upside down candies with gems in to decorate the corners (I got this idea of using candi upside down from the Craftwork Cards blog).
Finally we stamped and embossed a pawprint in silver on some navy card.
I don't do that much scrapbooking but every time I do I think I should do more! I bought an album when we were in Egypt in January and saved lots of things from our holiday but haven't got round to doing it yet. I was so unwell while we were there I think I'm putting off the memories!!!!
I'm looking forward to tomorrow as I have the day off work to do a bit of shopping and hopefully LOTS of crafting!!! :)
Hope you all have a great day!!
