Paper Craftin with Erica

Scrapbook Pages

I created this layout as a gift to our friends, the Raabe family.  I just love it.  I used the Maggie paper collection from The Angel Company.  It's one of our newer paper collections and the colors were just PERFECT for their picture.  The two tags and three paper circles are also from the Maggie Read more

So, "winged things" is the challenge over at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays.  I'm not a big fan of birds, so I knew that I needed to do an "angel" layout of my daughter in her "angel" Halloween costume.  Of course, this picture is from 9 years ago, but I don't neccesarily scrap "in order."

My clients got their pictures taken this year at their Handishop (sheltered workshop) Christmas party.  Sandy asked if I would scrap and frame pictures for her.  Here is the one I made for Steve (her boyfriend).  Sandy currently lives with us and we take her to her "boyfriends" house every Saturday to visit.  They are so Read more

I finally completed a scrapbook page!  Scrapbooking is my favorite papercraft, but I've been so caught up making cards and altering items, that I pushed my scrapbooking to the corner.  Well, I worked on quite a few pages and feel very much accomplished.  I am so excited about how this page turned out. My BFF came from Maryland Read more

So, I made this double layout for my 6×6 album.  I can't wait to add some pictures.  I love my little 6×6 album.  Although you can't do as much scrapping as you can on a 12×12 page, it is fun to make quick and cute little ones Read more

I am so sad that I haven't been able to post my blog candy.  There were numerous reasons for wanting to do the blog candy.  (1) You guys are awesome!  (2) It was National Scrapbooking Day on May 2nd!  (3) It was my birthday on April 29th!  (4) And I participated in a blog candy Read more

I recently made this page for a challenge in one of my CafeMom papercrafting groups.  We were given a sketch as an 'idea' for our page.  Here's what I came up with: The pictures were taken at Merceydeis' Kindergarten end-of-the-year picnic. These were her close friends. As a matter of fact, she is still close Read more

I love TAC's flower stamps. They are so cute and detailed. See those flowers? It's not background paper… they are stamped! How cute is that?! Everything else is patterened paper from the Mia's Cottage collection. I stamped the flowers and stems on both sides of the 6×6 patterned paper, making sure to stamp off the Read more

I'm in the process of creating an album for a friend of mine whom recently lost her baby to SIDS. It's an awful thing to happen. She only had three months with her son and I wanted to preserve those memories for her. My goal is to finish a 12×12 album, 6×6 album, and two Read more

This cute page is so simple and so themed. In the picture, Merceydeis is wearing a flowered shirt. Cookie loved to eat flowers (or weeds). Thus, a "flower" theme. This stamp set (with garden girl and flowers) fit the theme perfectly and the paper beautifully enhanced the picture's colors. I layered a wide strip of Read more
