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.

Camp Camby Retreat cards

This 5 x 7 card is my first Christmas card of the pre-season and my first at making a paper pointsetia. Papers used were DCWV-white, red dotted,Stampin Up, red & green JoAnn's. Ribbon Stampin Up. Scalloped oval is an svg file. For this card I used DCWV peach paper for the outter fan and dotted velum for the inner fan. The roses and leaves were also made out of velum. The card was embelished with lace and glittered peel offs .

This card is done with cream paper by DCWV, as are the swirls bird and flowers. The chrsyanthemums are made from a free svg file from svg.com. the bird and swirl are also from svg files cut with my Cricut. The green ric rack is a rub on I got a few years ago, don't recall the company.

This last card uses paper from Stampin Up. The basket of pointsettias was cut from a set I downloaded from one of the many free designs from one of the many photobucket sites. Each layer is cut out and placed on top of the previous layer with "pop dots." I am very thankful to all the wonderful people who share these great designs.
