I was a scrapbooker first before I was a card maker. I LOVE to scrapbook. I miss scrapbooking. Haven't done it in almost 1 and a half years. I know I will get back to it soon. Things are starting to even out and I am getting to be on a schedule and find that I have more time for crafting.
What I love about scrapbooking is that you get to relive the moment as you scrapbook. Pictures or an event that took minutes to occur can be relived in the hour or hours that it takes to document it. My goal was not to get to as many pages done but to spend time with the memories made with the people in the photos. I could spend all day on a two page layout and be perfectly content savoring the moments in the pictures.
Well, I found that I can do that with card making. Let me back up a little first. When I was first approached by the Women's ministry at church about doing a card ministry, I had never made a card.
I went to the craft store and purchased some DCWV note cards. They had a printed pattern on the front and I would use my Cricut to make die cuts to add to the note card. Then I started to buy stamps, blah, blah, blah and here we are today.
I got this pre made thank you card from a customer that reminded me of the DCWV note cards. I liked the pattern so I decided to reuse it to make a card. I got to spend time with the sweet lady that sent me the card as I re-purposed it into the card below. Hope you enjoy.
