Hi! Woohoo... I am a guestie again at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers
... always happy to hang with those ladies... and Edna!
This fortnight, the challenge is...
Edna wants us to revisit lost techniques, products, styles, etc., and show the Sisterhood what we come up with!
I dug deep... I stay pretty well-rounded by being on the Shopping Our Stash
design team-- I try to use what I have and push myself to try new things and incorporate older techniques... but this was a GREAT motivator. I started paper crafting via scrapbooking even back in high school, over 20 years ago. As a mom, I do a book per year for my girls... but I am now two years behind each... so that's FOUR BOOKS behind! Ahhh! It's enough to make me want to just quit my day-job!
Anyway, so I got super-motivated by this challenge and took over the living room: four mostly-empty scrapbooks and hundreds of pictures and memorabilia (report cards, certificates, travel stuff...) everwhere...
Here is one completed page (not so snarky, but it met the need of the challenge!):
- Striped paper by (damnit... can't remember... I'll add it later...)... CARTA BELLA PAPER COMPANY, 2013
- Black paper by American Crafts
- Blue paper by DCWV
- Red letters are Thickers
- Black dots by Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite
- Pictures loosely lined with a DecoArt paint pen
- Pictures printed at Costco
That's it! Go easy on me-- I haven't scrapbooked for like two years! I'm already thinking of things I could add or things I could do differently, but I'm all about VOLUME right now! Let's cover a couple years, huh?!
See you over at SOSS, and I look forward to seeing your "lost and found" techniques and styles or whatever you are revisiting!
