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!


2S4U - Laura's Sketch 57

So, I've had a busy day, but this morning I had a bit of free time, and decided I "needed" to make a card.  I mean, I needed to do that which brings me joy, and peace, and gets my mind off of things, and playing with paper and such is what does that for me!  Also, I was meeting a friend for lunch and she wanted a wedding card for her nephew, so I thought I would turn Laura's sketch into a pretty wedding card.  Here is her sketch . . .

And here is my card based on her sketch . . .

And here are all the details . . .

  • Base card stock (cream) is Die Cuts With a View
  • Black rectangle of card stock is Bazzill Basics
  • Patterned paper is both sides of Websters pages "life's portrait . . . love yourself"  The black on cream is the back side and the text on the top butterfly is the front side
  • Stick pins are Jenni Bowlin 'Superior Stick Pins' - Pewter
  • Shimmery organza ribbon is from my stash

Other Info:
  • Card base cut on Cricut using Walk in my Garden cartridge, card2 set at 5"
  • Patterned background cut on Cricut using Walk in my Garden cartridge, card1 set on 4 3/4"
  • Butterflies cut on Cricut using Serenade cartridge, butrfly3 set at 1 3/4" and 2"
  • Butterflies were separated for dimension using foam squares, then popped off the page using more foam squares

And that's my card!  It was very simple and came together in no time.  I like it when things happen that way!  And I actually have already sold the card to my friend, but she thought she might keep it for herself rather than send it to her nephew.  I told her the choice was hers!  (Love you, Gladys!)  Come back again soon!  Becky
