Faith based scrapbooking

Hello once again! I have done something new (for me)...I attended a scrapbooking class this weekend and created four scrapbooking pages (8 X 8). I didn't find it very difficult....what do you think?

This is my first attempt at scrapbooking. The papers used are Basic Grey's Mellow collection. Lots of earthtones. I can't believe I was actually sewing the buttons and green stitching (way not my thing), but I did and actually found it ok.
The word HOME is strips of left over paper, glued to plain chipboard and cut with large die-cuts. I really liked how they turned out. Next class will be six pages featuring family. Then we will create a cover page..and something else, can't remember what exactly. The lettering is a mix, some it from die cuts, the "My town" and "My street" are a chocolate brown felt material.

The "My town" sheet is very nice, we cut five 4 X 4 sheets of speckled paper, scored each at 3/4 inches, folded then staggered the papers on the longer green paper, then placed different colored tags on the underside. A wallet sized photo would be attached to the tag portion, and notes added below.

Class was held at Cord Camera and the design layouts are Susan's.

More cards to come.
