Scrapbooking OFF the Page, Card for a Man & a Quick Card

Sunday's Weekly Scrapbooking Round-Up 30th August 2009

I have decided to make a load from a huge kit I bought from QVC to sell at the school Christmas fair - although the cards aren't Christmassy!! But then there are other things going on at that time of year like birthdays!

Anyway, I promised to show you my "Thank You For..." Canvas which I made at the crop I went to last week, so it's here, and I have blog posted a couple of recent cards, plus there's some more scrapbooking inspiration from across the web (at the end).

Maybe this will inspire you to make something similar...

A Quick, Easy and Simple Sunny Card
Here’s a card I made very quickly and simply. It was a get well card really and I wanted it to be bright and cheerful, plus the person for who I made the card likes yellows and that end of the rainbow!
I made use of a piece of Que Sera Sera paper (K&Co) a few buttons, [...]

More Scrapbooking OFF the Page

Rachel over on her blog shows another way to use scrapbooking stash around the home with these lovely frames, bought on the cheap! It's amazing what can be achieved with a few patterned papers and embellishments...
