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!


Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 128 - Material Girl!

So, when I read the challenge for this week over on Cute Card Thursday I knew exactly what I wanted to do!  I had been practicing these sweet rosebuds made from torn fabric, and I thought they would be so precious on a card!  Here is my take on the challenge . . .

Product Info:
  • Card stock is Bazzill
  • Patterned paper is My Minds Eye, Ooh La La "Happy Days" paper
  • Image from clip art software
  • Fabric and felt from my stash
  • Stickles 'Diamond'

Tips, Tools, Techniques:
  • Card base cut using Cricut Expression, Walk in My Garden cartridge, card2 set at 5"
  • Orange fame cut using Songbird cartridge, Frame3 set at 4", orange mat cut at 4" using shadow feature
  • White sentiment tag was printed on ink jet printer, then cut on Cricut using Songbird cartridge, Fame2-s using 'Center Point' feature
  • Fabric roses are hand made and felt leaf was cut freehand

And that's all there was to it!  I just love it when a card comes together just the way you want it to do!  Come back again soon and see what I'm up to in my studio here at Camellia Cottage.  Blessings, Becky
