For the past several months I’ve really gotten back into card making. Card making is what got me started in scrapbooking to begin with many years ago (technically I wasn’t so much card making as I was buying card making supplies, but that’s irrelevant).
But at Christmas I decided to make my Christmas cards again and it just snowballed from there. But I’m loving it and I’m planning to stick with it. When I sit down to scrapbook, I very rarely have my photos prepared so card making allows me to paper craft and use my supplies without having to have any photos printed! It’s a win.
Now my problem is that I put off taking photos of them for months and then take them all at once. But last weekend I took pictures of about 35 that have been just sitting in a pile waiting on me. So I’ve started posting them on my Instagram account. Yay! I’d love it if you followed me over there @shelliemariecrafts
I plan to share more thorough posts on this blog and I’m looking forward to it. It’s great to be excited about my crafting again. I’d hit a bit of a lull just not knowing what I was doing and where I was going with it. Being single and childless sometimes makes it harder for me to feel like I fit in the scrapbooking world sometimes - but I’m finding my niche.
I’ve also been going to monthly crops at my local scrapbooking store Scrapbooking Life. I went to my first crop ever in April and I just loved it. I got sooooo much done and the ladies there were so nice. So I also went to the crops in May, June and this past weekend in July. I just love it so much. Three solid days of nothing but scrapbooking, card making and super sweet people.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say hi and post a little update about what’s been going on around here. Things should be picking up around here soon. I have some fun idea and big plans!
Talk to you soon,
