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!

Congrats - You Did It!!!

I'm still on my quest to build my card collection.  Slowly, but surely, I'm getting there.  I thought I'd add a congrats card to the group. 

I used the Silhouette Cameo for both the card and matching envelope.  I just got the machine and I'm pretty hooked on it right now.  The sentiment on both the tag and card were done with the Silhouette print and cut feature.  I was able to use the "Typenoksidi" font that I'd downloaded from dafont.com and loaded onto my computer (I really like that feature!)  The balloon is one of the many images available for purchase in the Silhouette library.

The paper is from my scrap supply. It was kinda fun to mix all those patterns.

Enjoy...

Oh I love this card, especially the balloon and that you used scraps! So wanting to get the Cameo but can't justify it 'cause I have a Cricut that I've taken out of the box once. Just not good with things you have to plug in to use (yes that includes my iron) as I try not to buy it if it wrinkles and the clothes are removed from the dryer immediately.

Great job on the card! I haven't branched out for the Cameo b/c I don't have internet connection in my craft room. All I have is a desktop : / But still loving my Gypsy!!
