ok....so someone asked my WHY 100 pages/100 cards?
i decided a few weeks ago (after i spent 15.00 on a few sheets of paper and a tombow adhesive) that i was literally scrapping in circles. a vicious circle if you will.
it went something like this: do a few pages, get the itch to buy something new, BUY something new, throw it on the pile and all the rest of the older stash goes unused.
Don't get me wrong....i make TONS of pages, so the paper i DO buy gets used eventually. It just seems like such a waste to have so many perfectly lovely and usable things just sitting there.
It's a much better idea to actually work the stash into awesome , cool, FUN pages that can be finally put in albums. i am all about the useitup, especially in the economy funk we are in.
and that is my reasoning.
for the month or two, EVERYTHING you see on my pages will be stuff from my very own stash.
i stocked up on SU cardstock and have some PTI and bazzill to fill in the empty spots. i CAN buy adhesive and journaling pens if necessary.....but only with coupons.
my prize at the end will be a few 12x12 albums to finally be able to organize my bigger pages. acmoore is carrying WRMK 3 ring binders...YEAHHHH BABY!
so without further ado, here are the weekends pages and cards:)
page 18: i got this idea from a simple scrapbooks simple scheme ( jan/feb. 2009, pg 55) did i mention that i love SU's kraft cardstock? it matches everything! plus i can get it in 8.5x11. big PLUS for me. using the same MM paper kit, with a little ribbon.
page 19: ahhhhhh baja breeze, how i LOVE YOU! that is like the best SU color ever:) again, i used the same MM paper kit with a HS label and i stamped the background with Unity's gratitude=joy and baja breeze ink. i LOVE this page. i pop-dotted the focal picture with the title. i DIG pop dots:)
card 5: simple 3.5 x 3.5 card with a few leftover scraps and unity stamps. most of cards will be this size until i finish the two boxes of pre-scored i made a few months back when i cut down my bazzill:)
i feel that my scrapbooking has taken me on an amazing journey...and now i think that i am comfortably at home with my style and the process that makes me HAPPY:)
