Paper Craftin with Erica

Scrapbook Pages

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 6x6 album.  I can't wait to add some pictures.  I love my little 6x6 album.  Although you can't do as much scrapping as you can on a 12x12 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 6x6 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 12x12 album, 6x6 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

My latest craze is creating 6x6 scrap albums. I love to make them for make-n-take projects, for myself, and as gifts for others. I just love this layout... perfect for any little girl.  The base of these pages are 6x6 sheets of patterned paper from The Angel Company's Lilly Anna collection. I adhered a 2 Read More

Wow! These papers really brought out his eyes, too! The Hip-Hop collection from The Angel Company is so fun!  The letters were cut out with my Cricut and the tags were made from a generic punch. See that lizard? That’s actually cut out from a sheet of the patterned paper included in the collection. I Read More
