Summer = Scrapbooking At The Cabin

Summer is often a time where scrapbookers set their projects aside and enjoy all the outdoors has to offer. For some reason, summer down time seems to present more opportunities for me to scrapbook, and I like to take them!
Recently, we spent 8 days at our family cabin, in Birchwood, WI. As luck might have it, we saw rain for 7 of the 8 days. When it started raining, my husband was very thankful for all the scrapbooking materials we lugged up north, because my girls were easily entertained! They made cards all week long! And, so did I. I want to share with you some of our creativity!
Ava made greeting cards to send to Sam (2 year old cousin) and Nora (9 month old cousin). They enjoyed getting their cards in the mail as much as Ava enjoyed making them. She made them and designed them all by herself. I just helped cut papers to size.

Iris made collections of cards. This is one using the stampset "Play Date". She made four cards from this set, using similar techniques (ink transferring as an example). She was hoping to sell them as a set (what an entrepreneur!).

And, here is one of my creations. I challenged myself to work thru my stamps, and make a card from each set. I'm not sure what my total count of cards was, but I did use some that I don't use often, including "Merry Monsters". He's cute, isn't he?

I hope that you are finding fun, relaxation and creative on your summer so far! THAT is what summers are for! Enjoy!
