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!


A Card for Two Challenges ... Pink and Frou-Frou!!!

Welcome back!  Here I am, back again with a card for two challenges!  I love when I can make a project that has two totally different challenges, and yet make it work into a beautiful finished product!  Here are the challenges ...

And here is my card for both challenges ...

And here are the details ...

  • Base card stock - The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)
  • White card stock - Georgia Pacific (Walmart)
  • Patterned paper - Echo Park 'Victoria Garden'
  • Image - Little Birdie Blessings
  • Frame - Tattered Angels
  • Pearls - Prima
  • Glitter - a mixture from my stash
  • Pink ribbon - yard sale find
  • Tulle and tiny flowers - Hobby Lobby
  • Vintage brooch - yard sale find

  • Martha Stewart / EK Success Paper Trimmer
  • Martha Stewart / EK Success Scoring Board
  • Cuttlebug and Textile embossing folder
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler

I love that image, and had wanted to use it for a while, but never found anything that went well with it, but then when I got the Echo Park Victoria Garden 6 x 6" pad, I knew this paper would go great with the image!  Thanks so much for visiting today, and I hope to see you back again very soon!   Blessings, Becky
