Scrapbook Your Heart Retreat Projects…

The weekend of June 8th I went to the SYH Retreat…their 5th one and my 5th one…this retreat is soooo wonderful and every year the gals just blow me away with their talent, projects and subject matter.

The little extras they do to spoil us are amazing!

This year’s theme: Garden of Life

This is a little canvas that we received with a paper napkin with a butterfly on it (tan in color). That’s it…2 things! A 5 minute project Christy said…ya right…more like 5 hours for me!!! LOL.

This was actually the 2nd attempt…the first time I stuck the napkin on with Modge Podge and it looked horrible…so I peeled it off, than I applied another square, same thing happened so I threw it in the garbage can! My friend Brenda-Lee took it out and peeled bits and pieces of the napkin off and said I think it will be fine…so I left it on my table and came back to it a while later…added some more paint, bling, ribbon and some inspirational sayings and voila…I’m in LOVE!!! Thanks Brenda-Lee!

These are a set of 6 postcards we made to stand on a easel.

We used Cathie Allen’s Super Stock Cardstock (absolutely gorgeous cardstock).

We went to 6 different tables and made these postcards with inspirational sayings on them using different techniques. At first I thought: this is a whole LOT of work but, in the end I am so glad I took the time to make them.

My fav.

My least fav!
