Scrapbooking is such a rewarding hobby. It allows you to record our memories. Memories of people, places, events and everyday moments. It also allows you to uncover your creativity in whatever form you desire. Some people go ‘all out’ creating artworks of each layout, while others are content with achieving a pleasing, simple looking layout. As long as you are enjoying being creative – go with whatever style you like.
With all this creativity abounding within you, why not take it a step further and create greeting cards. Why? you may ask:
1. To give your handcrafted love. I’m sure most people would agree that there is something extra special about receiving a gift or card which has been given that extra special touch. Whether someone has put a lot of thought or effort into selecting the right gift or it is made by them. Giving a quality, creative greeting card shows your extra thoughtfulness. By putting some effort into the card it will stand out from the crowd and be appreciated as such.
2. Use up your scrapbooking scraps. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that my scrap container seems to grow rather rapidly. There are many ways to utilize these scraps and one is by making cards. Greeting cards are usually on small and don’t require a lot of paper or embellishments. Therefore you can use the nicest papers and most exquisite embellishment scraps which you have lying around and create a beautiful masterpiece.
3. Anything goes. With cards there are no boundaries. No photos to blend with and compliment. No theme to keep running. No album it must work with. Anything truly does work here. Think of the person you are creating for and allow your imagination to run wild. It is a wonderful feeling to allow yourself that freedom of creativity.
Now start creating. Grad a scrap of card and a scrap of your favourite paper and possibly that latest gorgeous stamp you bought and have fun.
