Today, I am featuring a guest post from Renee Joy of Charms, Buttons, and Bows.
It is my pleasure to be guest posting on your blog, Stephanie. Thank you so much for having me!
When I started scrapbooking 14 years ago, I never thought that it would be such a big part of my life. From one small scrapbook that I made for a friend, came this amazing passion for this wonderful hobby. One of the greatest things is being able to share this hobby with my daughter; she loves to scrapbook, too. Teaching at a local scrapbook store also makes scrapping super special. Another bonus, of course, is all of the wonderful scrappers I have met along the way. It is truly wonderful to learn and share with each and every one of them. I am delighted to be visiting here with you today!
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I would like to share three cards that I made to celebrate this awesome occasion! I really enjoyed diving into my stash of goodies to create this card. It was really fun to use my scrapbooking paints to highlight the word “MOM”. Yes, my mother-in-law is extra special….I know that I will enjoy adding a special sentiment to the inside especially for her.
It is really great that Mother’s Day can also be shared with other special ladies in our lives….like my aunt….even though the miles may separate us, I have to let her know how much she means to me. I thought that misting the card and those cute little rosebuds would be just perfect for her. I love to use this technique on other cards as well. You can see them on my blog. Thank you so much for visiting!
I also love to create cards for someone special even if I have not quite decided who I would like to give them to or what occasion I would like to use the card for. This next card was made with that idea in mind. Interestingly, I incorporated this concept on my blog recently; the idea has stayed with me ever since. I plan to create additional cards such as this so I am ready when that special occasion occurs….I just add the appropriate sentiment and viola, I have my card ready to send. I also misted the little rosebud in the center of the flower. Oh, BTW, I do have a special friend that I will be sending this card to for Mother’s Day, wink!
I have also met some wonderful scrappers, like Stephanie, on Twitter. Thank you so much for joining me today! I look forward to “meeting” you!!
