When I first moved to Utah I was amazed at the number of people who were into scrapbooking. My interests were in the paper arts, rubberstamping and cardmaking being the main focus of my attention. Our neighbohood is is a very friendly group and that first week I had many kind people inviting me to sewing groups, hiking and walking groups, and the like. It lead to an invitation to teach my skills to a local group of likeminded women. I thought on how I could bring together my love of rubberstamping and the paper arts and combine it with the strong scrapbooking influence of the area. What I came up with was an idea to design a rubberstamped card for each class then translate that basic card design into a scrapbook layout. Below are a few examples of the class projects where we did just that...rubberstamped card designs and then similarly I moved those ideas to scrapbooking pages.
Below are several class projects to show you how the whole idea worked out.
