So now that mum’s into this project life stuff she’s joined a few Facebook groups. One group is a swap group. Basically you sign up and swap cards with other people that have the same theme. wow ok.
Since mum’s never scrapped a day in her life I know she was really nervous about this. Not knowing what any terms or ideas meant in the scrap world can be bad for business! There are more abbreviations it seems in the scrap world then in the photography world!
No time like the present to jump on in, head first. She chose the “Seeing Green” theme for this month. The cards are due at the end of February and since St. Patty’s day is in March, she thought this would be an easy topic for her first swap.
Off to Hobby Lobby to find some ideas. While browsing the scrap isles, she came across a magazine and on the cover was a cute little chevron card. PERFECT!! So instead of blue, she just chose a green chevron and went from there!
The supplies she used were very basic.
First since she wasn’t sure how to cut a straight line, she simply purchased pre-cut 3*4 Becky Higgins cards.
Simply cut the chevron scrap paper a little smaller then the width and length of the pre-cut card
Then she used double sided tape to adhere the chevron paper to the Becky Higgins Card.
Next, create the stamp. I found a stamp that fit perfectly on some tags with twine.
Then she ran the twine through the card and taped it with double sided tape.
Then fix to the card and there ya go! SIMPLE!!!
