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!


Papercraft Star # 56

This week's challenge over at Papercraft Star is to make a project using this photo . . .

as your inspiration.  Love the vibrant yellow and orange played off of the black and white print . . . very pretty!  And here is my card based on the challenge . . .


  • Base card stock - DCWV
  • Patterned paper - The Paper Studio
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Ribbon - Vintage rayon from an estate sale
  • Love tag and safety pin - Anna Griffin

Tools Used:
  • Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden cartridge
  • Scissors, craft knife, rotary cutter, ruler

Cricut Cuts:

  • Card base cut using Walk In My Garden cartridge, card2 set at 5"

Once I figured out what I wanted to do, this was a really quick and easy card.  And the colors are so pretty, although not my usual colors.  Thanks for visiting today, and I hope to see you back very soon!  Blessings, Becky

Ooh I just love the damask paper! A classic! I thought the same thing about the colors for this challenge, but after creating my card I also loved the end result. Just like your card, it sure is a beauty! Thanks for sharing your creation with us at Papercraft Star! I always enjoy seeing what you bring us!

I am echoing Kim here - everything is so fresh and clean, and you really took that picture and ran with it. It would be a favorite card of mine even without the picture challenge. Thank you for sharing your talent with us at Papercraft Star Becky - always a treat!
