Here are a handful of the projects you can find atThe Scrap Shoppe:
You can see my interests vary greatly from paint, recycled items, mini albums, scrapbook layouts, fabric flowers, canvas, to home decor!
I also spend a lot of my creative energies making things for this little guy.
Scrapbook paper covered wood letters. I painted the sides by sponging on blue paint. The animals were pre-painted and purchased from Hobby Lobby for ~$.50 each. They are hanging from the letters with thin satin ribbon. This project hangs over Gavin's crib.
Chipboard license plate frames covered with cardstock. I used a Cricut machine to cut the letters. I have a super cute animal stamp set I used to make the animals.
This ABC's banner is a more recent project that I made for a new play corner in my son's room. I'm a big believer in visualization so I figure the more he sees the ABC's, the faster he will learn them! You can see more photos of this project on my blog.
Keeping It Simple!
While I do have a 12x12 album devoted to layouts of my son, I know it will take forever for me to fill it up. Not only that, but I scrapbook photos as the mood strikes me. That means it may not be in chronological order. That can make waiting for a complete album to show off a long time coming. My solution? Mini albums!
Here, I've made a mini album devoted to the first year of my son's life. Each page shows a picture that I feel represents that month. I used the Little Yellow Bicycle Baby Safari collection. What is great about this collection is that a part of it is month by month journaling cards. Talk about making my job easy!
I've chosen the cover and a few of my favorite pages to showcase.
