My Mom taught me to knit and do embroidery. Though she didn't teach me to crochet she did instill an interest in that craft as she created projects herself.
As a child I went to 4H club and continued to learn various crafting skills and now Scrapbooking and card making are my passion and my escape!
The posted projects are wonderful!


What a fabulous layout! So many great elements! Love the knitting on the card! Such fun ideas! Thanks very much! :o)


Your creations are gorgeous, and it´s such an awesome idea to use all other kind of things on your cards and LO´s too, and I have actually done it earlier. I´ve been sewing all my life, and found some old barbie clothes, I had never got finished sometime last year, and finished them and used on a card, instead of buying stickers with close on. And I also used some really awesome christmas fabric to cover some cardstock shapes with for my christmascards last year, and it looked really awesome too, and I know, those who got them were thrilled with the idea. And I can think of loads of things, that could be used of cards and scrapbookingpages too, such as small embroidered otems and crochetted things and ribbon makings and lots more, as well as I´ve just made some cards with some leftovers from my sons curtains. You can see them here, if you like: http://maryannla.multiply.com/photos/album/372/Card_made_with_the_different_embellisments_I_made_last_week.
I hope, this can give some more some great ideas for how to use lots of things, we already have laying around the house.
Have a great day everyone.


That card is so awesome!


My Mom taught me many crafts, I was introduced some other crafts in CGIT & home ec in high school as well. When I moved out on my own I meet other friends thru craft classes. In one city that I lived for a few years I joined a 'stitch & bitch' group. Here we taught each other cross stitch, quilting, etc. Now I make cards & jewelery. For me, the companionship with the gals is as important as making the craft. It's good for the soul!!!


My mom was great at sewing...she made a lot of my clothes partly out of necessity because I was plus sized and there wasn't a lot of selection back then for larger size young girls. She tried many times to teach me, but I really never enjoyed it the way she did. When I finally tried scrapbooking in my teens...I really enjoyed that. I have always enjoyed photos and reminiscing over them...and found I enjoyed them even more when I would scrapbook the pages. It really is a great hobby and I can get so engrossed in it and just lose myself at times.

Love your layout and all the details. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was very young. I have always loved doing all kinds of crafts, and making clothes for myself and my girls when they were young. I have done sewing, cross stitching, woodworking, and have been scrapbooking and cardmaking for about 12 years.
