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!


Tis The Season...

Merry Christmas to ALL. 

I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to play with my scrap stash and tools.  Seems these days, I'm always purchasing and never making anything.   

Glad I had a chance to make some Christmas cards this year!!! Afterall, It's the MOST wonderful time of the YEAR!



Quick, Fun, Shaped...

Can't believe I haven't posted since June... Time sure flies...

To get back into the swing of things, I thought I'd start with the cards I enjoy making the most, SHAPED CARDS!  Shaped cards are quick and easy...  Plus I had some help with the Cricut Wild Cards 2 cartridge.     I decided to make matching envelopes - also compliments of the Wild Cards 2 cartridge.

"May Day" - CCC # 108

CCC has another great challenge this week.  Make a card using flowers with any Cricut Cartridge and any colors.  Pretty simple, right?

I made a little "Just Because" card that I like so much that I think I'll duplicate and make a set! 

I used Kate's ABC's for the flower and George to weld the circles to make the scalloped edge.

Your turn!!!  Show us your take on the challenge...  Go HERE if you do!



Mother's Day.... CCC #107

Time to show off your Mother's Day Cards.  The Cricut Cardz Challenge made it easy this week.  Use any Cricut Cartridge and any color to make a Mother's Day Card.  How easy is that?

I made a simple card using the Flower Shoppe cartridge.  The stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

After the Rain... CCC #106

The Cricut Cardz Challenge theme for this week is April Showers. Make a card for any occasion using an umbrella, rain boots, clouds, raindrops, puddles, etc. from any cartridge(s) and using any colors you'd like.

Birthday... CCC #103

This week @ Cricut Cardz, the design team was asked to make a birthday card using a cupcake or cake. You can use any cartridge and any colors.

Be My Valentine.... CCC # 101

Love is in the air @ Cricut Cardz!!! This week the design team was asked to make a Valentine's Day card using any cartridge and any colors. I made this simple 4.5 X 4.5 card using the Cricut Paper Lace and Ribbons & Rosettes Cartridges.

Funny, I got the heart from the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge, but I made my rosettes using the Sizzix 3-D flower die cut.

Now it's your turn. Drop by Cricut Cardz to see what the other design team members are making; then you play along.




Happy New Year everyone. Here's wishing you a blessed, peaceful, and prosperous
