Picture Frame

This is a picture frame I decorated as a gift. The frame was plain white I ordered from the scrapbooking catalog from Oriental Trading as also was the velvet ribbons. I am not sure what companies the papers are from. The flowers are chipboard from Fancy Pants that I sprayed with paint/inks from Maya Road. I added little pieces of papers to the centers and then used glossy accents. I might add my great nieces initals to the bottom in painted chipboard yet.


These are some cards I recently made. The first card says "so sweet". It's made with Pink Paislee papers (I hand cut out the popsicles), Making Memories letter stickers and some buttons from Scarlet Lime.
The second card is made with Scenic Route papers and die cuts, American Crafts felt flowers and Prima red flower rhinestones. It says "life is sweet" and that's a stamp from Pink Paislee.

Cork Layout of Keira

This is a layout of my great niece, Keira. The background is a piece of cork. The idea and supplies are from a monthly kit club I am in called Scarlet Lime.

Recipe Layout for Swap

This is also for a swap with the Berks County Scrappers. A recipe swap on 8 1/2 x 11 inch size page. It's typed on yellow cardstock and the bottom papers are scraps from a Scarlet Lime kit, the green is felt ribbon from Making Memories (I think), the rub on along the left is from Daisy D's, and the yellow butterflies are from Heide Swapp. The little green dots on the butterflies are from K & Co. The recipe is for Breakfast Bake. I found the recipe in the Kraft Foods magazine I get in the mail.

Card Swap Cards

These cards I made for a swap I am in with the Berks County Scrappers.
The papers are all from Scenic Route, some scraps of cardstock I cut with punches (the new border punches from ek success), felt flowers from American Crafts, assorted brads and buttons, and the Hello! stamp is from CTMH.

First Day

Hello! I am just joining the world of blogging. I will start off with a little info on myself and what I would like my blog to be about. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I started sewing at a young age with my mom and then learned to crochet (badly), and then onto cross stitch. Now I am into scrapbooking, card making and stamping. I still enjoy sewing, but don't do it as much. I love all the beautiful patterned papers and embellishments out there and have learned, I don't NEED to buy everything. I also like to make home dec items and lots of gifts for family and friends. I want to show on here what I create so: a) I can share it with you and b) I have a picture of it before it leaves me :)

I have to get some stuff photographed and will post it on here soon.
