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!

July ALREADY??? – Use IT Challenge #16

Can’t believe we’re already 7 months into 2009!!! Where does the time go??? Well, time to get those July birthday cards done. Here’s my first of the month. This card was done for the Use It Challenges Blog. For this challenge we had to:


  • Use something inspired by nature.

  • Use polka dots.

  • Use our favorite embellishment.

  • Mail our creation to someone special


I’ve got lots and lots of flowers so I used flowers, grass & a ladybug as my nature inspiration. The flowers are Bazzill Bitty Blossoms; the grass is a cut from the Cricut "Plaintain Schoolbook" cartridge, and the ladybug is a cut from the Cricut "Walk in my Garden" cartridge. Polka dots were added with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. My favorite embellishment is ribbon and this card will be going in the mail shortly… Mission accomplished!

Oh Yeah, I know it’s Summer and my card is a bit "Springy", but…

Enjoy!
