Paper Craftin with Erica

Greeting Cards

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

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

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

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 12×12 and 6×8 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
