Beary Scrappy

It’s still school holidays here and I am struggling to find fun indoor activities for them to do as it has been quite rainy. I came across this Jennifer McGuire Rainbow Scrap Backgrounds Video and thought sticking the strips down to make our own custom backgrounds would be fun for the kids and also allow me some creative time too.

I made a background using pastel colours to fit in with the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique April Inspiration.


The best part is that these were all this scrap pieces that were destined for the recycling bin! Instead they are now a cute card background.

Beary special card

I finished my card off with a strip of green ribbon, a lawn fawn circle and the ultra cute bear from MFT stamps. I’ve mounted him up on lots of foam tape so he really jumps out at you.

Thanks for stopping to look. I’m headed off now to make a special Anzac Day lunch for the family. Have a great day! Em
