Welcome...

So glad you chose to stop by!

I hope to use this blog to share some of my handmade cards as well as some of my scrapbook pages and maybe a few pics here and there that may or may not make it to a scrapbook page.

Scrapping for me is simply a fun hobby that I don't do often enough. More often than not, I'm a collector of all things scrap... i.e. tools, paper, embellishments...

Now to become motivated... Maybe this blog is just the way to do it...

Enjoy and come back SOON!

Created EXACTLY as Planned…KINDA…

Ever envision how a project will turn out, but the end result isn’t quite what you planned? Well, that’s my story with the flower card below. Actually this was SUPPOSED to be simple card with a computer generated sentiment mounted on a circle scalloped backround, but ummm, it seems to have turned out to be a flower… That’s because I couldn’t decide what size I wanted to make the background… So after a few iterations of cuts, I "inadvertently" had the layers for a flower. So I distressed each scallop (translation: kept filing until I was satisfied), bent the edges and played with them until they looked extremely worn, added the card base and voila…a flower shaped card… BTW… the colors in the photo are off a bit… The rhinestones are more the color of the card and the sentiment is brown and coral. Oh well, must be my photographic skills or lack thereof…

Anyway, the second card is a simple birthday card with a personalized tag. I guess I was having another case of less is best... Nah that's not exactly true… It's more like, I needed to get this card made AND in the mail and I couldn't come up with another design at the moment... Get this... First my friends were just asking me to make the cards for them, now I’m being asked to mail it for them too…!!! Ummm, anything else while you're making demands???

Enjoy...
