Scrapbooking Week in Review for May 5-11, 2008

The weather has been somewhat more cooperative this week, but still we are plagued with rain that seems as if it won’t quit on some days. I am so tired of rain, yet have used the bad weather as an excuse to hang out with my kids, create more memories and overall spend some extra time scrapbooking.

Here is what has been going on in the scrapbooking blog this week of May 5 – 11, 2008.

Scrapbooking Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

There are very few people as important to us as our mother. Whether you have a mother, a step-mother, the mother of your children or all three, they are all equally as important and remembering them on Mother’s day is one way to let them know how much they mean to us.

Technique Tuesday: One Sheet of Cardstock Mini Book

Welcome to our very first technique article. This technique was inspired by some scrapbooker’s who were tired of wasting cardstock to create smaller embellishments, albums and cards. It always seemed there was extra leftover, and they wanted a new way to create without waste.

Is it raining in your world today? It seems as if the rain has increased, rather than let up. Isn’t the old saying “April Showers, Bring May Flowers.”? Take advantage of the continuing rain and spend some time scrapbooking and playing around with your supplies.

Summer Scrapbooking Fun With Sandals or Flip Flops
