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!


Vintage, Shabby, Feminine with Flair . . . Just my kind of card!

You know that feeling you get . . . the one you get when you just know that a project turned out exactly the way it was intended?  A kind of joyful, light and bright feeling that just makes you smile?  Well, that's how I feel about this card that I made for three challenges.  The challenges are . . .

And here is my card based on the three challenges . . .

Supply List:

  • Base (kraft) card stock - The Paper Store (JoAnn)
  • Patterned paper - Gartner Studios (Michaels)
  • Brown card stock - The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)
  • Image - clipart software
  • Vintage lace and mother of pearl button - my stash
  • Seam binding - Bluebird Lane Etsy Shop
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Stickles 'Platinum' - Ranger Ink
  • Brown ink - Stampabilities (Hobby Lobby)

  • Computer and ink jet printer
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler and rotary cutter

The vintage image, design of the patterned paper, vintage lace I bought at an estate sale, and old mother of pearl button work together to make a very pretty picture.  Thanks so much for visiting me today, and please come back soon!  Blessings, Becky
