|Supplies: patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, cardstock from Neenah Paper; ink from Clearsnap; pen from Zig; reused Christmas wrapping supplies.|
Side note: yes, my son is wearing shorts in that Christmas photo. He always wants to wear shorts at home, even in the dead of winter. I think it's because he's so active, he never seems to get cold. We do make him dress warmly when we go out of the house, though. Anyway, back to the scrapbook page.
As much as possible, I try to save and reuse gift wrap. That includes these green paper shreds, which were used as packing material in a gift that I received. Most of them went into my gift wrap box, to be used again next Christmas. However, I did set aside a few shreds to use in scrapbooking, and they made their way onto this page.
I also try to save gift bows to use again. Instead of reusing this one to adorn a gift, though, I placed it on my page. It makes a fun dimensional embellishment, and it squishes down well to fit in my album (as this photo shows).
Are you excited about the "party trend" in scrapbooking supplies? I think these supplies are cute, and I'm sure you'll see me using them again sometime soon.
