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!

Two Challenges, and a special tree!

Hello!  I've gotten one card made today amidst the unpacking and tons and tons of laundry from our trip last week.  We spent 9 wonderful days at the gorgeous St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park near Port St. Joe, Florida.  Trust me, if you love the beach, nature, wildlife, and especially kayaking or canoeing, this is the place!

But now, I have a card that I made for two challenges, and here are the challenges ...
And here is my project based on these challenges ...





I found out about this easy and cute Christmas tree fold from my new friend, Jamie, and you can find the tutorial HERE.  And trust me, it's really easy ... by the time you've finished two of the sections, you will have it down pat!

Supplies:
  • Card base - Michaels
  • Red (background) patterned paper - Die Cuts With a View
  • Green patterned paper - Michaels 'Recollections'
  • Seam binding - Bluebird Lane Etsy shop
  • Eyelets - mostly from Buttons Galore and More
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers

Tools:
  • Martha Stewart/EK Success paper trimmer
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler
  • Eyelet setting tool

And that's all there is to it!  I hope you've enjoyed the card, and please check out Jamie's tutorial!  See you again soon, Becky
