I have put a serious dent in my Crate "Restorations" paper pack. It is one of those lines that just makes me want to create with it until I use up every little scrap.
Here is Rob and Susan playing backgammon while we were in Banff. Susan goes through withdraw if she has to go too long without a backgammon match! LOL Yes I was the little sister who would totally frustrate my older sister by saying that I didn't want to play a game today. ;) Sorry Susan. :)
The playing card is hand cut from one of the pieces of paper. I used more french knots on the border too! What is a scrapper to do when she has no small black brads on hand? That really should be a staple in the stash! I have to admit that I am having some issues with that yellow button sitting there all naked like without a stitch in it. ;) It was a pre-made chipboard piece. I debated putting a black button on top but didn't want to take away from the pop of yellow. Oh well, I'll get over it. It must be the stitcher in me that has this thing with naked buttons. LOL
I used a sketch by Helen Croft. Her blog "Scrap a Little" is always very inspiring with not only sketches but tutorials too. You can check it out here. She is also looking for guest designers, so give it a go!! Here is the sketch.
Lastly, don't forget to check out my Give Away here. I am having so much fun with this and am loving reading all about what makes you all happy! :)
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
