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.

I've been on a roll!

This is the third card from the svgcuts Christmas Cheers kit.  The cardstock is from a Martha Stewart pack with the exception of the trumpet.  The flower is from my stash.  Going to make the other cards in the kit.  I am having so much fun making them. 

Another Christmas Cheer card

O here is the other card I said I would make from the Christmas Cheer svgcut kit.  It is the "Department Store" card with a Christmas theme.  Patterened paper is the reverse from the wreath patterened Stampin Up paper, which BTW is retired.  The windows are vellium.  I pulled my embellishment stash out and found some Christmasy goodies to add to the card as well as some peel offs.  Hope

Wreath Card

I just completed this card that I made from svgcuts.com's "Christmas Cheer" kit.  The pointsettias were shaped as any other 3D flower with my McGill shapping tools.  All of the cards elements were cut using my Sizzix Eclips die cut machine.  Patterned paper is from Stampin Up d I used crystal gems in the center of each flower.  As I have lots of free time today, ok, I should be doing in housework or the like, but rather be crafting, I will make another project from the same kit and post later.  Hugs and keep cool.

I'm Back

It has been a really long time since I have posted here and it is now time to get  back in the swing and craft and post.  My latest project is the Ferris Wheel from svgcuts, "Summer Street Carnival".  It was a very laborous project,but the finished work was well worth it. I used glittered cardstock for the accens on the cars and wheel and attached crystal "gems" to the wheel spokes to give the effect of carnival lights.
