Thanks for visiting!


Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!

More Designs for Making Handmade Cards!

The folks at Making Handmade Cards have been keeping me busy making sample designs for their new, yet to be released products! The latest set of printable papers "Roselle" were my favorite so far with their pretty hibiscus botanicals and rich colors of brown, blue, purple and more. I had a lot of fun working on the two projects I submitted.

The first is a sympathy card - because that's what the papers 'told me' they should be! Here are a few pictures of the card.




The main elements in this card:

  • Inking
  • Layering
  • Machine Stitching
  • Deep jewel-toned gems
  • Beige button threaded with brown satin ribbon
  • Brown satin bow

The second project I made with the Roselle papers was a fun 'luau' birthday invitation tag. I must admit I love this project, and think it would be a great party invitation - one that anyone would be proud to stick on their refrigerator or bulletin board.

The main elements in this invitation are:

  • Base is a pre-purchased tag
  • Inking
  • Layering
  • Prima flowers
  • K&Co pearl gems
  • Brown silk ribbon

Today I'm working on some more projects for MHC using their next new line of printable papers called "Little Princess" which is all about girls, princesses, crowns, castles, and more. Keep an eye out for my projects made with those papers.

Thanks for visiting me today! Blessings, Becky
