I haven't been on the computer very much lately, trying to get other parts of my life sorted, so I hope you'll bear with me.
One thing I’m sure of, when you make a statement that you will do something each week, day or month even, something else always comes up. On my blog raevon59.wordpress.com I made the statement that I would post a card each week, well, that didn’t quite happen. So, I will do my best to catch up and even try to write posts during my breaks while I'm studying. Yes, I going back to study in July, so I hope to catch up before then. However, I won’t promise which day, because that would only jinx it again.
National or International Scrapooking day/weekend was enjoyable, hard work but worth the effort. It was a pity that some customers were unable to attend, because they missed out on a very productive and enjoyable day. I am posting NSD workshop results here and will post a couple of cards later.
The aim was to have four 2-page layouts completed, preferably with photos but in our case we had the layouts complete one day and attached photos the next, that is, photos that we could lay our hands on and "chop" to size as necessary. Because of the mat sizes on the layouts, we have to try and find appropriate photos that can be trimmed to fit, that is why some of the spots are empty.
For those new to scrapbooking, having templates such as we made, would be the way to go, however, the drawback is the one we faced, of not having photos to fit or trimmable to make fit, but hey, you have start somewhere. Once you get the idea of putting things together you can use your own designs to "scrap" or "dress up" your photos to make them even more fun to go through.
We have several albums of "scrapped" photos, mostly made by me until earlier this year when my partner started. We had fun making the "Mi Amor" layout in January/February. I had only started with Creative Memories and didn't have too much in the way of CM products but we did the best we could.
So for someone who only started scrapbooking and card making this year I am proud of what my partner who has achieved in just a matter of months, what took me years to achieve.
Anyway here are some photos from our NSD workshop, I also made a Digital version for display at the workshop, which I will post tomorrow.
Thank you for looking and reading. Enjoy! Till tomorrow then.
Oh, apologies for the photos being out of alignment, I'm still can't get it to obey me, lol.
