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.

School Days Scrapbook Page

   This brought back so many memories. It was like a walk down memory lane. It's both surprising and sad how quickly time flies. I still remember driving all the way out to my daughter's house to see little Lauren get off the bus after her first day of school. Now in a few weeks she will be graduating. Now I am really wondering where the time went.


Double Page

 Left Page

Right Page

   I used my die cutting machine to make this complete page.  The lettering above the bus was made using the cutouts from the windows. The tags under the windows was made using my die cutting machine and a pen holder in place of the cutting blade. I am so glad that that my cutting machine can do that because I am less than proud of my handwriting. I used her school pictures in the windows. Thanks for dropping in.

People Of Winter ATC Swap

We have a ongoing swap at this time that I have been joining when ever I have the time. Lately it hasn't been easy. I have been working on a scrapbook for my granddaughter to display at her high school graduation open house. Just like so many things I have really fallen behind on the scrapbook. I love these "People Of" swaps and it really hurts to miss any of them.

 (maybe it was people of the snow)

   I glittered the edge of a piece of white card stock and put it aside to dry. Then I found this enchanting image online. I printed it twice for each card. Then I cut out parts of the picture and layered them making the image appear 3-D. I used Wink of Stella on the embroidery on their robes. I then used a snow writer to make the snow at their feet dimensional. After it was dry I lightly brushed the snow with glitter.
