Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Mom N Dad Scrapbook Page

    Mom and dad were married during the war. Dad came home and picked up mom. Together they rode the train back to Salina, Kansas, where dad was stationed at Camp Grant. The U.S.O. met them at the train where they took mom to a home to spend the night. The following day dad picked up mom and they went to a minister's home where they were married. They spent two weeks together before dad was shipped over seas. Since there were no wedding pictures of them I photo-shopped a picture of mom and dad and put them together. Don't they make a lovely couple? The pictures may have faded but never their love for each other.

   I started with a soft pink floral paper. Then I laid pink vellum over it. I cut a frame for the photo. Then I heat embossed the outside edge and the frame with gold. Over that I laid a soft green patterned paper. Then I laid another sheet of pink floral paper that I trimmed around the roses leaving them to lay over the picture. I added glitter glue to the butterfly wings to highlight them. The gold flourish was cut with my Silhouette. Then I added a fern made out of Angelina Fibers. That is the flash beneath the ivory spray of flowers that climb the flourish. I topped them with a handmade rose and butterfly. I used gold press on letters for Dad N Mom. Below that I printed their names with a black glitter pen. The page wasn't done yet. There was something missing. I moved it around my work area for more than a year. Last week I found an in-twined heart  punch in a clearance bin. I knew immediately that it was what I needed to finish this page. I came home and cut a tag out with my Wizard die-cut machine. Then I punched out the hearts. I wrote Feb. 4th at the top and beneath the punched hearts I wrote 1944 with the black glitter pen that I used for the lettering. I put a piece of Angelina fibers that I had left over from the fern on the underside of the tag. I tied it to a gold trimmed pink ribbon and attached it beneath the rose. It finally came together. This page is done!
