I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.
I am so happy to share that I had a good deal of mojo last night and was able to complete 4 layouts from my scrapping trip to Ohio back in September. The first is a photo of me and my 'Secret Sisters'. Before the crop we were given names and we treated the gals to little things that they enjoyed like favorite candies or scrapping supplies. In The photo to my left is Robin (the gal that hosted the crop) and to my right is Linda. I was blessed to have two wonderful Secret Sisters too...Melissa and Kim that blessed me with some wonderful handmade items, treats and personalized goodies. I hope I can find a photo of me with them too. For this layout I used the November DT sketch and Inspiration board from Sketches4all. The Sketch:
The Inspiration Boards:
For inspiration I used the colors as well as the word friends.
And here is my page:
I am also entering this layout into the Turtle Soup Inspiration Friday challenge which called for using stars, circles, triangles or an '&'.
My next layout uses the sketch from DCWV November Stack-a-Holic Challenge as well as papers from 2 fun DCWV Stacks - the Edumacation Stack and the School Days Stack.
After a fun Sunday evening dinner with friends I came home and managed to sneak in a bit of creative time. A friend of mine from church lost her mother and I wanted to send a nice condolence card to her. I found a simple sketch over at Case This Sketch that worked out quite well for what I had planned. Here it is:
Here is my card:
My photos are not the greatest since without a PC I have to transfer them from a phone. The background is a black cardstock. It is layered with a satin embossed white paper and a black velvet embossed paper. The flower is one of my favorite Sizzix embosslets.
I also have entered this card in Stacy's Card Challenge to 'use black' over at Sketches4All.
I then moved on to create a layout with a collage photo of flowers from a trip to Longwood Gardens in August 2013.
