Happy National Scrapbook Day! Are you creating something fun, attending a crop, or just browsing around? Well, I have a couple of projects to share with you today. A Cherry On Top is hosting an online crop, so if you are looking for some place to celebrate the day, it’s a good place to start. They sell these trendy tubes that you can “dress up” and use for just about anything. So, I thought I’d share two ways.
Here is a photo of some of the materials I will be using on the “Quick & Easy Trend Tube Treats” project.
First, fill your trendy tubes with yummy treats. I chose Skittles … taste the rainbow!
Next, I assembled the flowers. I layered two flower die cuts together using foam adhesive. Then, I added some ribbon treatment around the tubes.
Below, are the finished project photos. Simple. Easy. Fun.
I also needed a graduation card for my cousin. He’s graduating from my undergraduate alma mater summa cum laude with one of my majors. So, I’m really proud of him. Although I won’t be able to attend the festivities (due to a pre-scheduled wedding we will be photographing) I wanted to be able to show him some celebratory excitement I am feeling for him on his special day.
By the way, his day will be super special as the First Lady, Michelle Obama will be the commencement speaker! WOW! What a treat! I thought John Edwards speaking at one of my law school graduations was a big deal!
This is truly a ‘shaker’ card that I hope he opens and lets all that confetti out.
On the sides, I decorated it with some diagonal striped washi tape. Sorry, I don’t know where it’s from as I’ve had it for a while now. The colors for the card are the college colors, so he should totally get the concept I was going for here!
I hope you liked these trendy tube project ideas! Have a great National Scrapbook Day and create something!
Enjoy your weekend!
