I hate scrapbooking.
Let me restate that for those who do not believe me.
I. Hate. Scrapbooking.
I’m from Utah and I hate to scrapbook.
Beyond the fact that I have the artistic skills of Gangus Khan, I think that scrapbooking (For me) is too overwhelming and you are NEVER DONE.
I LOVE scrapbook stores.
I love the colors, themes, brads, metal doohickies that have words stamped on them, paper flowers and cuts, ribbon, stickers, cardstock, punches, wire, little glue dots and embossing stamps…everything.
I could hang out in them for hours.
What is a girl who loves materials but hates “Scrappin” to do?
Small, easy, cheaper and FABULOUS to have on hand.
A group of us (Betty, Michelle, Karen, Shirly, Melly, Melia, Mary Ellen, Sherry, Karen and ME) are meeting on the third tuesday of every month to make cards. We pick a theme (This month was “Blank Note Card”) and make 10 of the same card, then exchange them when we’re done.
We snack, talk, share ideas and more importantly…GET IT ACCOMPLISHED.
I think mine turned out ok. (It’s the one with the squares on the bottom right hand)It is great because now I’ll always have a card on hand (I always seem to need them) and I actually enjoy doing a project that doesn’t stress me out.
Don’t worry though…no plans on becoming Bree Van DeCamp anytime soon…
