Falling For You - Part 2

This paper package is all but gone, I've used it all up - every last little piece of pattern paper. I LOVE it. It's been a delight to play with it creating three double layouts as well as approximately 30 cards. So worth it's weight in gold, in my not so humble opinion. LOL For more info on these are other products please pop on over to my website

Falling For You - Happy Day

Falling For You is exactly what I've been doing with this amazing paper package that is now available in our brand new Holiday Expressions. The fall pattern is whimsical and has had me in it's grip since I popped open the package. The colors are fun and yet easy to work with. 

Here are a few cards from the HAPPY DAY Card Workshop. I did the original as shown in the instructions that are downloadable on my website, then a variation of that followed by the same materials using a different pattern. I'm thoroughly enjoying this package.

Beautiful Bird

It's been a long while since I've blogged - it's also been a crazy ride since the last time! I'll have to sit down and tell you all about it soon. For now I hope you enjoy this delightful bird, featuring a few of our new products for 2017-2018. Bashful is our COLOR OF THE YEAR and it's a sublime addition to our color palette.

Happy Birthday Mom

I adore my mom - we are very similar!

 We butt heads a lot! LOL

She is a strong woman, maybe that means I am too!

She is a cardmaker! 

She loves to craft. 

She has more craft stuff  than I do .... LOL

Most of all she loves each of us unconditionally.

I hope she likes this fun card I created for her!

You're Tea-riffic!

I just adore the stamps of the month recently from Close To My Heart! This Tea-riffic set is so fun to play with and can be used for many applications. I chose my first starburst card to feature the Happy Mothers Day cup from this set. It`s also a different color scheme than I would usually choose but I really like how it all came together. I hope you do too! 

These sets are only available in a specific month, so if you can "clearly see" the possibilities for this daintily fun set, be sure to grab one before the end of the month :)

Farewell Class

You've heard of quilting bees of years gone by, groups of women who gather together to work on a common project, all the while creating friendships, bonds that carry through the tough and awesome times in life. Each quilt holding stories and memories in each scrap of fabric, holding immense pleasure for the one who's keepsake it will become.
Scrapbooking has often been referred to as the quilting bee of the new millenium... women still gathering together to work on projects, near and dear to them - their memories. Each telling their story, through scraps of paper, embellishments and glue - GLUE that holds their memories in one special album, or card.

Our family is moving out of the community we've lived in for most of our lives. Last night I held a 'farewell class' to share more memories, strengthening the bonds, creating new friendships and more. I've sent the past weeks packing up our belonging, purging and sorting through my papercrafting and beginning to mourn my workshop space (which I'll still have in our new home, just not as much lol)
Last night I realized though it isn't the workshop space I'll miss - but the people who've filled it with their stories, laughed with me and at me, learned from me, taught me and gifted me with friendships that miles between won't break. I will miss the people who made this space come alive, share my passion for papercrafting and speak my language - they are my 'tribe' 

Thank you friends for reminding me why I love this thing called scrapbooking and card making - because it brings women (and sometimes men too lol) together. We put aside the business of having busy lives and hold each other up with friendship through a common joy.

I won't forget the laughter and stories you've shared with me, from my heart to yours, thank you.
