Cards and Scrapbook Pages from January & February

 I didn't make any scrapbook pages at all in January but I did get a good handful of cards made. I've been making sure to join in the Card Chain Challenge group each month, then I wanted to get my Valentine cards made, I had a  and a few birthday cards as well.









In February I focused on learning a few new card making techniques.  The first card was made using sandpaper, embossing folders, and some designer series paper.  The second two cards were made using a double embossed sheet of vellum; the two cards have slightly different looks due to what color embossing I placed upright. 


I finished up ALL my scrapbook through the end of November and ordered prints of our photos for Dec- mid February. I already have quite a few ideas for those cruise photos!

    1. Aw, thank you! Each month our Card Chain Challenge gives us a color palette, a design idea, or a choice of techniques to try and I almost always pick the color choices like I did for that card.

  11. You are amazing, Joanne! These cards are just stunning! I wish I'd been smart enough to create scrapbooks of our family vacations. Now, I have lots of photos and no idea of when we went other than looking at the kids to see how old they looked!

  13. Oh my goodness! These are all just gorgeous. When I did paper scrapbooking (I do digital now), I always saved leftovers to make cards. I still have some supplies (because they NEVER run out--ha ha), so I made cards with my daughter a couple of weeks ago when she was having a rough time. Spending that time being creative together was just delightful. Thanks for sharing what you've created! Visiting from Talking About it Tuesdays.

    1. Aw, thank you! I bet that was such a fun time; I tried to get my boys into scrapbooking and card making but that didn't last very long at all...

  15. Years ago I used to make cards and other items such as wall hangings or welcome signs using stamps. Your cards especially brought back memories of that time. I especially liked the ice cream cone birthday card! Maine looks like a beautiful state to visit. I hope to get to the East Coast for a little sight seeing and travel. Thanks for sharing with us at SSPS!

  16. So beautiful, I always love seeing your cards & scrapbook pages Joanne. Makes me want to grab a copy of Creating Keepsakes and read it cover to cover like the old days :) The Family page is my favorite. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Senior Salon Pit Stop! I'm excited to be featuring you at Monday’s party. Congrats! Pinned
