*** today is my very first post on Frosted Designs blog and I wanted to share my project here too -- below is what I have written/shared on the Frosted Designs blog ***
with you here today with my very first 'official' post for Frosted
Designs! I am super excited to be here and figured with my first post, I
would share some things about me! :)
I have been scrapbooking since before dinosaurs roamed the Earth!
Well, not really, but it has been almost 18 years since I started, when
my son Adam was born. When I started, I was a single mom to my son, so I
didn't have a great quality camera, so a lot of his younger year photos
are dark, small, a lot of background with not a lot of Adam (no zoom)
and overall not the best!
I love to buy paper collection packs! Why? Because you get all the
paper in a collection for a great price, and don't have to worry about
'missing' any of the papers in the collection.
I love to make mini albums! This also leads into #2! Having paper
collection packs make making a mini album easier! You have enough papers
to create an entire album and have extra papers to add dimension to
your pages in your mini album!
I love to UPCYCLE! That is one of my big things! I will upcycle/recycle
anything into my art! For this mini album I am sharing today (and
others I have made), I am using cardboard sleeves that I collected from a
ton of my co-workers when my company gave us a paper pad portfolio,
that was covered in the cardboard sleeve. I cut them down to size for
my mini albums and they are the perfect upcycle item!
now for my mini-album! As I mentioned above, I have a lot of photos
from my son Adam growing up -- they aren't the best photos, since I
didn't have a great camera when he was growing up, but that doesn't mean
that they don't deserve to be scrapped! :)
