Paper Craftin with Erica

Greeting Cards

So, the holidays are fast approaching!  Although I'm a crafter, I broke down and ordered Holiday greeting cards this year (and, honestly, last year too).  I haven't had a whole lot of time to get crafty.  Between the new business, school, volunteering, and family, it has been a crazy mess.  Plus, my carpal tunnel syndrome Read More

I just love this stamp.  It reminds me of my daughter.  Grandma and Grandpa live on and run a dairy farm, so she is definitely a farm girl.  She also takes horse riding lessons.  Anyway, I created this card especially for the CMCC challenge "Anything Goes" with my daughter in mind. I think the coloring turned out wonderful (though I do Read More

Okay, so, it's December... but it still FEELS like Fall.  At any rate, Fall is my FAVORITE season because, even though my allergies are worse during this season, it is so beautiful and includes two of my favorite holidays.  I have made an easy peasy card with my Cricut Imagine (something that I haven't used Read More

I upgraded to the Cricut Imagine on Black Friday of last year and haven't played with it too much since then; however, I did create a card with my Cricut and Copics.  It was rather simple.  The little girls image is from MRO (love her stamps) and the rest of the stuff is from the Read More

I purchased stamps from MRO on Etsy... and I just had to make a card with one of them. Mabelle designed stamps for The Angel Company and, since TAC closed their doors, she creates them for herself.  Anyway, things have been great in Wisconsin (well, too hot I think). We hit breaking records... over 100 degrees Read More

I prepared this card for a challenge over at MarkerPop (formerly iCopic)... they are having their first challenge and blog hop.  The theme for this challenge is to color hair or fur.  I used my new favorite color... pink.  Although, as I stated in a previous post, my ultimate favorite color is purple, I have Read More

Hi All... I'm back!  Happy 'late' Valentine's Day!  I made this super cute card for Brenda.  I used the February Pixie of the Month (from Pixie Dust Studio) as my main image and then used the "LOVE" sentiment from A*Muse Studio (my first card using A*Muse stamps).  The two felt hearts are die-cut.  How cute Read More

I created a "last minute" Christmas card for two challenges.  It was truly last minute because the iCopic challenge ends soon.  The other challenge is for Color Me Creative Classroom and challenged us to color with gold, cream, and white. My project uses more "gold" than cream or white, but I had fun coloring this Read More

Well... almost!  In light of the upcoming holiday, I have a special card for you.  I colored her with my Copics, of course.  I added liquid applique to the fur (which I heat set to make it fluffy) and to the holly (which I didn't heat set to keep it shiny).   I added airbrushed Read More

I have a little Halloween treat for you... better late than never... and it was published in The Bug Magazine!  Unfortunately, The Bug Magazine is no longer being published; however, they still have PDF copies available if you're interested. I hope you all had a great Halloween.  Merceydeis was a beautiful fairy and we had Read More
