A Little about me

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I have loved doing crafts for as long as I can remember-sewing, ceramics, painting. But I have only been involved in paper crafts for the past four years.What I love the most about paper crafts is the plethora(check out the 50 cent word) of styles and techniques in paper crafting.There is something for everyone. I hope, on this blog, to show you some of the techniqques I have learned and the cards or scrapbook pages I have made using those techniques.

Bellas and Vino Italiano cards

See how different the same stamp can look. You can't see on the cards here, but I used PLAID' "Papier" glass finish paint on the wine glasses. It gives it a realistic look to the glass. Inside the card I printed on my computer sayings in Italian such as "Alla Salute"(cheers), "La Doce Vita"(the sweet life) and "Felice Compleanno"(Happy Birthday). The image was colored using Prismacolr pencils.

Here are my latest 2 Bellas, my chefabellas. Blue chefabella is mounted right on the recipe card on the card stock and the the other was mounted using pop dots. I liked the touch the recipe cards give to the chefabellas.
