Yes, it's true. I went to my first scrapbook store crop on Saturday and had a lot of fun. I made 5 layouts (mostly finished, just need to add photos) and 2 cards. Right now I am just going to show you one of the cards I made. I really like it a lot.
When I first got to the crop I couldn't figure out what I wanted to make so I decided I needed a little retail inspiration (shopping - lol) so I wandered the store until I found some paper I liked and bought it. Then I went and started making a layout. After I made the layout I decided to use my scraps to make a card. Here is the card.
I love this card. The paper is from Bo Bunny - Prairie Chic collection (I'm pretty sure). I saw the "banner" pattern on one of the paper sheets and thought it would make the perfect banner type shape for my card. I cut it out with my scissors and added glossy accents to the mason jars to make them look like they were glass.
All the other papers on the card were just scraps from my layout. I used a Bo Bunny sentiment stamp that I stamped onto a piece of scrap paper and then cut in a banner shape. A little bit of twine to finish...voila!
