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!


Another Challenge Project - Tuesday Taggers and Everything But The Kitchen Sink

Hi Folks!  I've been playing a lttle bit today, and this project is for two challenges . . .

Everything But The Kitchen Sink's challenge is to make a project using a boxtop or the cardboard from a box, and

Tuesday Taggers challenge was to make a tag with a Teddy Bear theme.

Here is a collage picture of the product I used.  An old icecream cone box.  Top is both sides before, and bottom is both sides after I cut the tag out on my Cricut.

And here is my tag . . .

I apologize for the bad pics, but I got this finished after dark and took it inside.  Here are a few spotlight pictures . . .

Here is all the info . . .

Product Info:
  • Patterned paper is from a very old MME Wild Asparagus stack
  • Lace and burgundy ribbon are from my stash
  • Braided trim from Dollar Tree wedding crafts
  • Grey rhinestones are from Basic Grey bling-it
  • Burgundy pearls from Prima 'e.' line Pearls and Crystals
  • Teddy Bear sticker from K&Co. Grand Adhesions
  • Crown Rub-on from Melssa Frances
  • 'Remember' rub-on from a very old set from Walmart

Cricut Info:
  • Base of tag, and patterned paper cut on Plantin SchoolBook, 'tag1' set at 5 1/2 inches
I must say this isn't my usual 'style', but it was fun to make, and a good excuse to use the teddy bear sticker I've had for ages.  It's a new week, so I hope everyone has a great one.  Blessings, Becky
