Paper Craftin with Erica

Last week, my daughter earned her Pointe shoes.  She is 16 and has been dancing for over 12 years.  Although dance was never her forte, she stuck with it and loves it more and more every year.  She is a Junior in high school, so she only has one year after this one left to Read More

This has to be the favorite card (or one of) I've made.  This will go to someone very special.  Anyway, I colored this image from C.C. Designs.  I then sponged around the image.  The background paper is from the Candy Floss collection by Wild Rose Studio.  Know what else I did?  I did some faux stitching… my Read More

Happy WOYWW with Stamping Ground!  My workspace is a disaster!  I don't have room to craft!!  I am reorganizing, so there are supplies EVERYWHERE!  For those of you who don't know what my space normally looks like, click here.  Well, now, it looks like this! I took my ribbon bars/collection down to make more room Read More

So, it's been a LONG time, but I'm back for another WOYWW with Stamping Ground.  I'm working on what I call my "Instagram Album" but what other people would probably just call a "mini" album.  I'm only working with my Instagram pics and they're perfectly sized 2x2 and 4x4 by Persnickety Prints (my favorite place Read More

I'm back for another WOYWW with Stamping Ground and this time my focus is on my Capture 30 project!  What is Capture 30, you ask?  Capture 30 is a project in a class that I am currently taking over at Big Picture Classes where we are working on a year-long planner (though the class is Read More

Valentine's Day is coming up and I wanted to make Merceydeis something quick, special, and cute.  I also wanted to participate in a couple of challenges, which is perfect for the Valentine's spirit.  Here's what I came up with. I started with this cute little alien from an old Valentine stamp set (The Angel Company) and colored her Read More

Hello and Happy Holidays!  Well, it WAS starting to look like Christmas; however, the majority of our snow has melted and now... it doesn't look like Winter anymore.  Anyway, I have a Holiday card to share with you and it was a rather neat technique. I used an old stamp set to stamp the 'plain' Read More

Hello all... I'm back to join in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) with the Stamping Ground and a cute card made with stamps by Fun Stampers Journey and, of course, my Copics.... and a special prize for some of you!  The first FIVE people to sign up for my newsletter AND comment on this blog Read More

Another creation using the August KOTM by Fun Stampers Journey.  Although the kit provides products to make 4 cards, I adapted one of them to make a layout (since I'm a scrapbooker at heart).  This is a page with a very recent picture of my daughter and me.  Isn't it cute?!  As many of you Read More

I made my very first card using Fun Stampers Journey supplies!  I used the stuff included July Kit of the Month.  I'm also working on a 12x12 and 6x8 scrapbook page with the included supplies.  I have an owl obsession, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this great stamp set with my Read More

Wisconsin is currently in an "uproar" regarding gay marriage.  We currently have a constitutional ban in our state; however, it looks as though it may be overturned very soon.  How cool would it be if I could legally marry my best friend?  Anyway, below are four SEPARATE layouts of My Brenda.  They are 8x8 each Read More
