I started my search on Etsy and found this amazing shop. Figuring that it might be worth while to try this 'technique' out before the Christmas making rush I decided to buy one collage sheet. As soon as I saw this postcard themed one - I just had to have it!
I've printed out a couple sheets of these images just to see what paper/printer setting is best and they all just look gorgeous!!
This one has to be my favorite so far. All 12 postcard images in the collage printed on marble effect 6x4 card. I just can't decide if there should be something in the bottom corner. A "thanks"??? It reminds me of this card from last year.
Planning on making a set like these.
This one is the Victorian Woman Greeting Card.
Tonight, I am hoping to get my tabbed journal altered scrapbook album finished. So hopefully, I will be able to take photographs tomorrow.
Let me know what you think of the Victorian woman card and the other images.

There was finally some good light (not too harsh shadows) to take some photographs of the cards I made a couple days again.
These are just a few of the boys one.
Some aren't listed at my etsy shop - so they are sneak peaks.
The latest special offer at my store is "All postcards are HALF PRICE"
In other news, I went for a blood test earlier today and my arm is still sore. I still managed to get to the gym today but was too tired to finish the tabbed journal album. Hopefully I will be able to get this finished (with journaling) tomorrow.

I hope you enjoyed this weekend's feature.
This post is up a day early because first thing Friday morning I am on a plane to Hamilton. The one must-do thing there is the glow worm caves! I'll be back here on Tuesday night.
While I have been alone, I have been tidying up my crafting area. It's still a little messy but it tidier.
Last week, I recieved this goodie pack of Valentine scrapbook goodies, just from subscribing to the only New Zealand scrapbooking magazine. Since my mom pays for the subscription I am leaving half the goodies for her.
Inside the box:
Lots of heart shaped, cupid shaped, love shaped buttons, jewels and glittery bits.
Seven sheets of patterned paper.
Two sheets of lace paper.
Three heart shaped scalloped 12x12 paper.
Two sheets of 7Gypsies stickers.
I spent a couple days thinking about what to make. I decided on using some scrap cardboard to make a three page "altered tabbed album". I added some more pages using matching red cardstock. I used about half one of the 7Gypsies stickers to finish the album. I printed the photographs (all of my mom) with a slight sepia effect so the colors wouldn't clash with the white, red and cream paper.
A thin piece of ribbon/fiber holds all the pages together.
I am giving this to my mom next Tuesday, when we get back from our short holiday.
