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!

Birthday XOXO...Throwback Thursday 8

I finally had the time to participate in Emma’s Throwback Thursday Challenge. I came across her site a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t been able to make the deadline until NOW!!! The Throwback Thursday Challenge focuses on the older (not used as often) Cricut cartridges. This week’s challenge was to create a project relating to birthdays using the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.

Of course, I did a simple card (it’s what I do most)… The black scalloped layer is the shadow feature on the #5 button (page 86 in the handbook). The embossed white layer is the blackout feature on the #9 button (page 90 in the handbook). The three birthday hats are welded cuts from the {hat2} image (page 103 in the handbook). I added a little bling to the hats with the iRock. So glad I had the chance to participate.

Enjoy…
