Paper Craftin with Erica


Now that Merceydeis is well over 18 (and done with secondary education), it’s time to work on her School Days album.  I tend to procrastinate, but not only that… I like to wait until the project’s purpose is complete (in this case, it was finishing school).  See, if I don’t wait my style will change, I’ll Read more

I’ve been working on our Halloween Wedding album for quite some time.  I’m extremely behind in my craft work and it’s great to see it finally coming together.  It’s a 6×8 album.  Here’s a sneak peak. And now onto my workspace.  It’s actually pretty clean and organized.  You’ll only notice some of my stash for Read more

So, I found (can’t remember for the life of me where…. Etsy, maybe?) homemade Harry Potter wands.  I thought, “I can do that.”  So, I took a stab at it and made some for a friend.  I wanted wand boxes and searched and searched and finally found white boxes (that would fit my wands) with a Read more

So, here we are again… haven’t posted in a while.  I would like to make a “resolution” to begin crafting if only for one hour every other day.  I don’t often find the time (especially over the last year); however, it is so therapeutic for me and I really miss it.  Happy crafting!  XOXOXOXO Challenges Read more

I made this cute card for friends of mine and the the birth of their little one, Eliana.  Those footprints are her’s… I took the pictures they sent me, shrunk them down, and then printed them on photo paper.  I use mulberry paper (which is really easy to tear for a natural look) and some Read more

Again, it’s been awhile.  Geesh!  Yes, I’m crafting.  No, not as often as I’d like.  Welcome to another What’s on Your Work desk Wednesday (long time, no see).  I have a bit of a mess… but what crafter doesn’t?  I’m in the process of reorganizing… yet again.  Here’s what I have in the midst of Read more

So, it has been a little while since I’ve posted a creation.  Let’s be honest… it has been a little while since I’ve created anything.  Life has taken over and hasn’t allowed me the chance to be creative even though I know I’m in TOTAL control of that!  Anyway, here is a simple card with Read more

I made this super easy and super cute card with the Fun Stampers Journey October 2015 Kit of the Month.  I just love using their kits (now called a Bloom Box).  I always add my own twist, but overall, it’s super easy… and super fun.  Have I mentioned how much I love Fun Stampers Journey Read more

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
