Anything that is made primarily from paper

Scrapbook Cards are such a great way to use up small scraps. I have been busting out coordinating card sets as thank you gifts for donations to our church youth group to help get the kiddos to camp.  (Consequently, if you would like to make a donation…) As I was saying, I just love making these little sets so I wanted to share.

Recently I made a mixed media owl canvass and thought I would try a card version

Here is the whole set

As you can probably tell I just rough cut these guys, no pattern or anything which make each one unique, but I decided to make a little template so it would be a little easier which you can download here:

The backgrounds while coordinating are all different so I could save on paper since the idea is to use up the small scraps.


The next set is pretty simple.

These sets as I said were thank you gifts, so I made these matching pennant thank you cards to top them off:

The banner thank you cards obviously are just strips.  I like to make it easy on myself by making each pennant different widths and lengths so I don’t commit myself to order.  Less mistakes, less stress! I was lazy and just used my envelop board punch to cut the bottoms

Just tie it up with a bow!

In this class, we learned how to sew together an art journal and also began a few pages. Here are some of our examples!

Art journals are great ways of practicing your art with out the stress of messing it up. You don’t have to be pleased with the results, and nobody ever has to see. Like a regular journal, it can be kept private and be just a place to express your creativity or your heart. I like to use mine to practice new techniques or experiment with new products. And sometimes you come up with something amazing that you just have to share!

Learn how to make a squash book, or just get together with friends or family and do a craft without having to clean up the mess or decimate your house! The Hobby Lobby classroom is located on Prince street at the back of the store. Just ask an associate to point you in the right direction (or act like your looking for a bathroom) Late comers are still welcome, so if you don’t make it at the beginning of class, don’t worry, this craft is an easy catch up, so if you miss the beginning it’s not a big deal. If you don’t know what a squash book is, see the previous post.
