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!

All About Valentine's Day...Cutting Cafe

Time flies, huh? I can’t believe we’re already approaching Valentine ’s Day!!! To get started with my cards, I chose to use some of the Valentine’s Day designs from The Cutting Café. The love birds with hearts and the "Together" sentiment are part of a printable stamp set called “All About Valentine’s Day”. You can color them in with pens or you can choose to do as I’ve done and color them using any desktop publishing software program. Or you can cut them out with your favorite scrap paper. The stamps are easily resized too!!! The love birds were sized larger for the card, but scaled down to fit the circle punch for the envelope. Nice! And what’s Valentine’s Day without something sweet. I used the Cutting Café “Candy Box” cutting file to make the adorable candy box. You can fill them with whatever you like. I chose to fill mine with some yummy Granola Thins. They were perfectly sized for this box. More cards to make. See ya soon.

Until then, enjoy…
