I used to scrapbook quite a bit when I was younger, but as I got older, naturally, my tastes began to bend in other directions and that lovely world of floral paper, pink ribbon, paper punches, and sheer stickers was set aside for a while.
Yesterday I was at Hobby Lobby and I happened to pass by the paper isle. You all know what it looks like; rows of small metal racks with papers of all colors, patterns, and styles to choose from. So I stepped into it for a second to see what they had. Right away a shabby turquoise and pink rose design caught my eye and I slipped a piece of it out of it's tray.
"You don't belong here, Elizabeth," I said to myself, "Don't waste your money on something just because it looks pretty. You won't use it. You're done scrapbooking." But I just couldn't put it back. Then I saw another. And another. Before I knew it I had a small collection of randomly coordinating papers. "There has to be something I could do with these at home," I thought, so I held on to them and headed to the art department where I needed to pick up some watercolor paper.
When I got home, the idea came to me to use some brown paper blank cards I had, and make some note cards. They could be used as invitations, thank you notes, get well cards.... pretty much anything.
Four hours later, here's what I came up with. :)
And.... they are posted in the shop!
Hope you are all having a lovely day!
