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.

The Kids Got Married



   


THE BRIDE

CINDY

THE GROOM

SKEETER

   After years of living together they finally tied the knot. I've had these little outfits for 8-10 years. Saturday was the day. It was a fun time. It was just us time. Skeeter never similes but Cindy always has a smile on her face. The one with the biggest smile on Skeeter's face Cindy's face didn't show. Wouldn't you just know it? I couldn't believe that he smiled for these pictures.

Summer Is ATC's

I am hosting another ATC swap. Well, actually two. This is the first one. It's called "Summer Is". I love to host swaps. It gives me the opportunity to see so many cards and techniques all at the same time. I'm always looking for new learning experiences. These are the cards that I made for it.


    For this card I tore scrapbook paper for the water and glued it onto white card stock. I then applied glue to the remainder of the card and then sprinkled it with sand. After that was dry I applied Glossy Accents over the water paper to give it the shine of water. While it was drying I folded brown paper and glued each fold down to create the trunk of the palm tree. I tied a piece of white string around the tree trunk and glued them in place. I then hand cut a few palm leaves and glued them in place. For the finishing touch I glued plastic swimsuits on the line.


   This card was made by altering and re-sizing a picture. I mounted it on top of blue card stock. All of the blooms in the picture were then covered with Flower Soft. It's a great product. If you haven't used it yet you should try it. It really brings details of flowers to life.
  


   For this card I painted white card stock with acrylics in two shades of turquoise, one solid color and one pearlized. I then used a cutting file from Silhouette for the little boy and his dog fishing. I pounced the edge with a gold stamp pad. I then used glossy Hodge Podge to stick it in place. I followed it up with another coat to seal it.
