I love the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin’ Up. I have used it for numerous projects and it is so versatile that it pairs well with other stamp sets. I got the idea for one of the cards, this first one, from another designer I found on Pinterest, Unique Ink. Once I started,… Read More You’re A Fabulous Work of Art! Card variations
I feel like yesterday was Monday. I woke up and it is Friday. What a blur. Lots of projects due at work this week, and I don’t like to leave things undone. The good news is two-fold. Only one project left at work and I hope to knock it out today – or at least… Read More Some Cards and Ink
It is about 9 on a Saturday morning and I am about to get started on a full day of crafting. I just need some caffeine. A little sunlight. And lots of glue, paper, glittery bits and memories. Scrapbooking, art journaling and photography along with a little mixed media all rolled into one happy morning.… Read More O Crafty Day!
I am learning how to teach something I love: paper crafting. I have been making scrapbooks and homemade cards since I was a little girl. I have kept a journal since I was 8.

I want to make a mess! A big one. I want to leave bits of sticky paper around on the floor and cut up a bazillion confetti hearts all while waiting for spray paint to dry. Can you smell the fumes? I can. I am itchy to get my crafty on! Here’s a photo from… Read More Let’s Get Messy!
I am playing around again with colors and masks. I discovered a neat feature on Picnik.com and wow, what a difference that made with these photos. I’m thinking Christmas cards? I know mom will want the peacocks as 5×7 or 8x10s for her living room: peacock-themed and colors.
I’m having fun playing with Picnik, again. I blame it on reading the new Scrapbooks, Etc. from cover to cover tonight.
