What I love most about scrapping: The creative freedom. It does not matter what skills you have, when you made it, it is a piece of art.

Lara Hanna said...

As usual your work is superb! I love that scrapbooking brings people together. Life is so busy and hectic that we sometimes need to just "be" and what better way than being creative with people that love my hobby as much as I do!!!

Oh, Elizna, I love the bright colors against the black base, and that cute die cut border! Great card!
The best part about scrapbooking & cardmaking for me is the creativity.....I find it very relaxing. Probably not cheaper than therapy for me, though!

Scrappin' Annie said...

Your card is lovely Elizna, think I will have to try that. I love scrap booking because it allows me to relive the memories and I is also a creative outlet - cards I love to make because I feel I am giving something of me to the person, not just something bought.

Desire Fourie said...

HI Elizna. This is my first time visit here. I have become a Follower and am already a member of Lets Scrap. I love your creations and your take on the sketch for the blog hop is gorgeous. My favourite aspect of scrapping and cardmaking is that it is a therapeutic outlet for the harshness every day life could sometimes dish up. Would love to see you as a Follower over at www.desiref.blogspot.com

Deb said...

Wow Elizna, your card is gorgeous. I have been a member at Lets Scrap for a while and have joined your blog - its great!! What do I love most about scrapbooking - the stash!! I love all the new stuff that I add on a monthly basis to my overflowing scrap room - hopefully this hop will make me use some


ShazC said...

Love your card Elizna. the hearts are beautiful - are they difficult to make?

Elizna said...

Ladies, THANK YOU for joining in this fun blog hop with Let's Scrap. And thank you for all your lovely comments.
SHAZC - the hearts is part of a die-cut set {IT KITS - tags} from Quickutz/Lifestyle Crafts. You can cut out the shape with any personal die-cutting system, using the little heart die, and then just stick 2 hearts together. As easy as 1-2-3! ;-)

Sweet Scrappins said...

Your card is so simple, yet elegant, I love the clean lines! I love the way scrapbooking or cardmaking bring a bunch of women together, to "kuier" (visit) while scrapping away!

Chels said...

Love the card! Can't wait to try this one out. I am a member of Let's Scrap and a follower of your blog. I love to feel creative when making cards. Thanks

Kathy said...

Here is my link to the card for your sketch, Elizna! Thanks for the challenge!

I just became a follower of your blog and am already a member of Let's Scrap. I love your card! My favorite part of scrappin/card making is trying new things. I'm gonna have to try the sketches later after following the hop. There's so many to choose from! :)

KarenC Inspired said...

Love your card-the pink on top of black really pops! The sketch is very interesting-haven't seen anything like it before. I look forward to making a card with it. I love scrapping because there are endless possibilities!

Charlotte said...

Your card is absolute fab and have touched my heart! Just absolutely love it.

I just became a follower of your blog and my favorite thing about scrap booking is the creative side. I am also in love of buying the goodies and get extremely excited when I visit a scrapbook store - which is rarely as I live on the island of Mauritius.

Alma Carter : Emsige Biene said...

Hi Elizna, I joined up on your blog and I am a member of Let's Scrap.

Evelyn Vertefeuille said...

Hi Elizna,

What do I love most about scrapbooking? I love it all! I love the process, the handling of the materials, the playing around with them until I get the look I want, the satisfaction of a completed layout. I love to make gift albums for friends and family.I squeeze in a half hour of scrabooking whenever I can, but of course there is never enough time to do as much as I would like!

Debbie said...

Elizna-your card is beautiful, I love the way that pink pops! I love the hearts and the sweet butterfly too!

What I love most is just being able to make something for someone that they will enjoy.

Thanks for hopping along :)
