Helena Rose Crafts
Hi There, I'm sure that over the years many of you have thought "I can do that".
I have enough artistic talent to do a better job than that.
Well in the particular theme of this site, that is, paper craft, card making and scrap booking, you probably can.
Artistic talent is a very subjective term, and when taken in conjunction with your sense of humour, and your own interest in hobbies, sport, recreation, animals and gender. What you are able to do is put a unique spin on this craft, a spin that is not reliant on the mass produced subjects available commercially.
So, from the point of view of your friends family and acquaintances, you will make some thing which is essentially you. This I hope will amuse and entertain these same people, but will also give you an immense feeling of satisfaction?
People have known for many years that working with your hands is good for you, a sort of occupational therapy, but also tying that in will artistic freedom id doubly satisfying. And many will still remember fondly the sorts of presents they received which had more to do with thoughtful workmanship than the value of the gift?
Paper and card craft is a cheap easily maintained hobby that anyone can do at home on the kitchen table, keeping marital harmony, and easy to clean up from. Little or no danger of depleting the planet's resources', and giving so much simple pleasure to the receiver. A true family hobby that can be done by all age groups, and to all age groups.

We all have special memories, times of our lives that had a particular significance, not only for yourself, but for the whole family, community or even the world? An impressively decorated scrapbook, often containing an extensive written journal of the events therein, and such memorabilia as photographs, momento's,printed material and even artwork, are a popular pastime of many americans and range from whole family histories to a fine day out?
The most essential scrapbooking supply is the album itself, which can be completely bound, or enable insertion of pages.
Basic materials include background papers (featuring printed and cardstock paper), picture corner mounts (or various other methods of mounting pictures such as adhesive dots, photo mounting tape, or acid-free glue), scissors, a paper trimmer or cutting tool, art pens, archival pens for journaling, and mounting glues.
A lot of time individuals who delight in scrapbooking will create their own background documents using the devices such as die cut templates, rubber stamps, craft blows, stencils, inking tools, eyelet setters, heat embossing devices and individual die cut devices.
Numerous add-ons, described as "embellishments", are used to decorate scrapbook pages, consisting of stickers, rub-ons, stamps, eyelets, brads, chipboard elements in numerous shapes, alphabet letters, lace, wire, textile, beads, sequins, and ribbon.
One of the key components of modern-day scrapbooking is the archival quality of the supplies. Created to preserve photographs and journaling in their initial state, materials promoted by a lot of significant scrapbookers are of a higher quality than those of numerous common photo albums commercially available. Scrap bookers use acid-free, lignin-free papers, stamp ink, and embossing particle to achieve durability.
