I didn't think I would get any lay outs done at all during the Christmas season. But all it takes is, a couple of minutes of down time and I was able to make new pages.
Sometimes in the store, I get bored minding the store. And if things get a bit slow, I scrap. I just took a bunch of papers and punches and just kept them in the store for the duration of the season. And sometimes, I would go home with a a new page each day.
Would you believe that I got these K & Co Christmas papers from Helen at a bargain price? I bought them last year, during her water sale. And just kept them until I had enough Christmas photos.
I made this lay out for Memory lane's Christmas party. I used papers I bought from Helen's water sale last year. This is actually K & Co Christmas papers. The tree on the left I just cut from chipboard. And the tree on the right is a DCWV die cut. I used Martha Stewart doily punch. Autumn leaves stamp. Glimmer mist. And we used Irock for the gems. And that's Christmas 2010 for you.
Unbelievable. I know there are a million and one things that need to be done. But I am still scrapping.
This is from the Prima Hollywood collection. The embellies are from Sharon's birthday kit.
This photo was taken in Baiyoke Sky.
The paper used here is from MM Panorama. The chipboard is from Basic grey. And the paper strip is from Cosmo cricket. Additional embellies from 7 gypsies, graphic 45 and studio calico. Scrap lifted from Iris, using the Crate Paper Restoration Collection, Divi trims and Martha Butterfly punch. Prima Road trip collection. MM Panorama stickers. Basic Grey chipboard stickers.
As a scrapbooker, you need your own factory of money. Either that or be a savvy shopper.
I bought 2 albums, a chipboard embelishment, adhesive dots, and two huge bagfulls of embelishments. And it was half of what I paid for picture number 3.
Which turned out to be a Martha Sterwart Punch, MM Panorama line, a couple of Pink Paislee and a couple of Lilybee papers. I was also able to get a couple of stickers, tickets for journalling and my irock template. yey!
Sometimes, I go for bulk shopping, and at times, I'd rather go for quality. Either way, find what makes you happy.
