A simple Scrapbook demo for Busy Bee's

I had a great time last night with the lovely ladies of Busy Bee's craft club. There is nothing better than being in the company of so many crafty women :D

The idea was to demo scrapbooking to some who may never have seen it before, so i decided to do a very simple layout (not to scare them :D) with 2-3 techniques. I used some papers from We R Memory Keepers and a photo of my lovely little woman (who does not allow me to take her photo anymore :( hence the shallow depth of field )


The technique we did was making a paper flower from old book pages



We used chipboard letters as a template for making our own title out of co-ordinating card stock (I sware I'm not obsessive with co-ordination, hee hee)


If you don't have co-ordinating (:P) ribbon then you can use some cardstock as a tab on your tag :)



I think the ladies enjoyed the demo and I reckon we have a few converts along with one or two who are already scrapbooking. What I learned.... I seem to love co-ordinating papers with my cardstock and my images, who knew?
