Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

Jeff & Cindy's Wedding

I did this scrapbook page in July 2011 at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Valley Forge, PA.  It was a cross word puzzle class offered through Mosaic Moments by Tami Potter.  Tami's classes are one of my favorites and I take as many of them as I can when I attend CKC each year with my fellow gigglers.  Tami and her husband are super nice and very patient teachers.  She has a unique system for making the mosaic pages.  The cardstock she has is high quality and it is marked so your pictures are always lined up perfectly.  The letters are also from her company and she has other accessories called cornerstones.  If you visit her website you can see all her products and she even offers free downloads on some items.  (I guess that's a pretty good commerical for Tami's company...and no, I'm not on their payroll...LOL)  I did find a free cross word program online that you can type your words into and it gives you a layout which makes this very simple.  My subject was the wedding of my youngest son, Jeff and daugher-in-law, Cindy.  The pictures & letters are punched out using a 1 inch Marvy punch.  SU has one now but some 1 inch punches aren't truly 1 inch so becareful if you purchase one.  I used 4X6 photos so the images were a little larger but you can also punch the pictures out of a thumbnail picture.  I'm using this as the opening page for their family scrapbook that I'm putting together for them.  I'll follow it with some of the full pictures on this page and then onto my grandson....yes, they've been married 10 years this October.  I do have some later scrapbook pages done but I'm a slow scrapbooker and have been sidetracked making cards!!  I hope you've enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Supplies:  All from Mosaic Moments by Tami Potter except the photos.
