Scrap Birthday Party

Last week I celebrated my birthday in a great scrap party with my friends. It was a lot of fun meeting my friends and sharing some quality scrappin’ time. We started with a toast! My friend Alice made the most wonderful punch from champagne mixed with fruits. It was delicious and soon enough we were all cheerful and ready to eat! Looks yummy don’t you think? After the amazing deserts, all prepared by Alice, it was presents’ time. Here are some of the presents I got. Finally we started working. Each of us brought a project that we were working on. When you work with company the ideas flow and the creativity climbs. Thank you friends, it was a great evening! Einat

Scrapbook (Haggadah) for Passover – part 2

Don’t be alarmed, I didn’t forget the lucky winner of the blog candy. The name of that lucky someone is posted at the end of the post. Last time we braked for a Passover dinner, now after a good meal we can continue to look at the Haggadah. These next two pages are filled with funny faces photos! A page with text only. A page that has photos of mother and daughters. Interactive pages: one with a flap that has some small photos in it. The other page has a small book that holds photos of all the members of the family. These pages are all about singing! The song talks about different elements in Judaism that starts from 1 God. Each verse the numbers grow, for example 3 fathers (refers to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), 4 mothers (Sara, Lea, Rebecca and Rachel), 10 commandments and so on. I included a family version to this song by adding relevant photos, …

A special scrapbook (Haggadah) for Passover

Today is the last day of Passover. To celebrate this holiday as well as Easter, which is just around the corner, I wanted to share with you the special gift I gave my mom: a handmade Haggadah designed in scrapbooking style. Before I tell the significance of this gift a few words on what Haggadah is. Haggadah is the “instruction manual” for properly performing the Seder, the festive meal that is the highlight of the Passover festival. Haggadah means either “telling” or “narration” in Hebrew, and this refers to the fact that the central theme of the Haggadah is to tell or narrate the story of the Hebrews’ Exodus from Egypt. The Haggadah consists of 15 steps or sections, within each step there are various rituals. The purpose of the Haggadah is to show that, like the Hebrews who listened and followed G-ds’ will for them to leave their physical, political, and spiritual slavery in Egypt to eventually attain their …

101 Flowers tutorial: Scraps flower

All of us crafters have a lot of scraps. Paper, buttons, ribbons and all kinds of materials find their way to the trash or to our leftover box. In honor of Passover, which is celebrated today I am spring cleaning my scraps and trying to reuse them for small projects. One of these projects is the #2 tutorial in the series 101 flowers. You can create flowers from many types of scraps and materials here are two ideas: You will need: a scrap of paper, 1-2 buttons, a ribbon and a piece of leftover transparency (I had a round piece). 1. Stamp the transparency to give it a pattern. 2. Adhere a button to the center. You can add another button on top of it, just to give it a little more creativity. 3. Cut any size petals from the paper scrap, and adhere to the transparency. 4. Ink the edges of the petals and curl them a little. 5. …
