Recently I made a baby album 12 x 12 - 20 pages for my niece, Crystal. All she has to do when the baby is born in December will be to take pictures of the baby's 1st year and add pictures and she will have a album of baby, Evan's 1st year.
Sorry about the pictures not being so great. Colored the image using my copic makers, used stickles on the stars and the candles. I cut some of the stars out of the paper, glued them to card stock, stickled them, and popped dotted them to the card. I used the negative of a die cut to create a frame in the inside of the card, and used a $1.00 stamp from Michael's on the inside of the card.
Monday, August 30 was my sister, Lizzy's birthday. Ten days up to her birthday I was sending her happy mail (although we work together - I thought it would be fun to get happy mail). She enjoyed the envelopes (the envelopes were filled with paper piecings for her scrapbook pages, colored images and sentiments for card making). On her birthday I delievered to her this box which was filled with 20 handmade birthday cards, a book of stamps, a gift certificate to the local scrapbook store. She has been telling me that she wants to start sending her friends birthday cards. Being a working mom of a very active 12 year old daughter she does not have the time to make the cards, so I made them for her to send to at least 20 of her family and friends. She thought it was a perfect gift. So come back for the next 20 days and I will display a card a day.
The last few years I have been making Christmas Cards for the troops, so that they will have cards to send home to family and friends. I have started my challenge of 100 cards for the troops. At least this is my minium but would love to create more than that. The goal for the group of ladies that give my a hand with this is 2000. Here are the first 3 cards of the challenge.
I made this box for Ms. Virginia and it was filled with lots of images for her to color with her Copic Sketch Marker, a lot of colored images for her to use with her cardmaking, and a few handmade cards.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
