I can feel myself getting carried away in the joy and therapeutic qualities of paper crafting. It's wonderful. I honestly never thought I'd get sucked in, but now it seems almost like a natural extension of my photography. It's another creative outlet for me and I'm loving it!
So, my sister-in-law is getting married this summer (YAY!) and I'm helping to plan the wedding. There will be LOTS of DIY stuff to keep the cost down, and I'm really excited about that because I LOVE TO DIM (Do-It-Myself). I went to Barnes & Noble today looking at craft books and wedding books and such, and I came across a really great book that I had to have:
A Card a Day - Over 365 card ideas by Wendy Sue Anderson and Jennifer Schaerer: It's just what it says it is - over 365 card ideas packed into a beautiful and vibrant book. It's like mini-scrapbooking! :)
Check it out:
It's great because of the full color pages, but I also love it because there are step-by-step instructions, a shopping guide, and it even notates the cards that only take about 5 minutes to make! Great for when you want to be creative but have little time to spare. :)
I was so excited that I came home and made my first card tonight - here it is:
It's not perfect, but I like it for my first card ever! I'm really looking forward to making more. Enjoy!
