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!

Miscellaneous Card Set…. PTI March Blog Hop



I’ve only had PTI stamps for a couple of weeks now, but I couldn’t help participating in their monthly blog hop. This month’s Blog Hop Challenge is to use buttons along with one PTI product. Right now, I only have PTI background stamps and one set of their sentiment stamps. So I used all of the PTI products that I have.

I made a set of all occasion vase shaped cards. I used buttons for the flower centers. I don’t know the brand of buttons (just grabbed some from my stash)…
I used PTI’s background stamps to decorate the vase. The stamps used are: Retro, Polka Dots Basics II and Dot Spot. I used PTI Mega Mixed Messages stamps for the sentiments.

Fun times…

Enjoy…

First and foremost, I must say that these cards are gorgeous! Secondly, you are such an amazingly creative thinker. I would never think to combine those stamps with the cards that you made, but good grief they turned out beautiful. Thank you for your constant inspiration!
