Paper Craftin with Erica

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I wanted to make Merceydeis something quick, special, and cute.  I also wanted to participate in a couple of challenges, which is perfect for the Valentine’s spirit.  Here’s what I came up with. I started with this cute little alien from an old Valentine stamp set (The Angel Company) and colored her 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

Another creation using the August KOTM by Fun Stampers Journey.  Although the kit provides products to make 4 cards, I adapted one of them to make a layout (since I’m a scrapbooker at heart).  This is a page with a very recent picture of my daughter and me.  Isn’t it cute?!  As many of you 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

Wisconsin is currently in an “uproar” regarding gay marriage.  We currently have a constitutional ban in our state; however, it looks as though it may be overturned very soon.  How cool would it be if I could legally marry my best friend?  Anyway, below are four SEPARATE layouts of My Brenda.  They are 8×8 each Read More

With this beautiful weather coming on in, I thought it would be nice to post a card in hopes that it warms up even more!!  I’m not sure how much I like this creation though, I must admit, it looks kind of neat! It’s not my best coloring… I actually had quite a difficult time… Read More

I’m back for another WOYWW.  Yes, it has been a while.  Again.  That would be because I haven’t scrapped in a while.  Again.  That would be because I am swamped with life.  Again.  One of my New Year resolutions was to spend <at least> one hour per day crafting.  Well, that didn’t work out so Read More

Back for more project life!  This is how my January went.  The first week, we were prompted to take pictures of various things such as breakfast, where we sleep, where we put our shoes, etc.  The second week, I created a page about “to do’s” and leisure.  I described my “attempt” at a healthy lifestyle Read More

Well, I have finally cleaned up my craft room… and started to craft… again!  If you missed my disaster of a craft room last WOYWW, click here to see what I’m talking about.  I’m joining in on this week’s What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday to show you how fabulous all this looks!  I’m so proud Read More

So, I decided to try some digital scrapbooking since I wasn’t too happy with the way my traditional Project Life turned out.  Thus, I started over!  Here is my starter page… almost exactly the same as my traditional one, only it’s now digitized! What do you think??  I love it much better!  It’s more clean… Read More

Back for a another Hybrid project!!  I'm taking a Project Life class with Becky Higgins over at Big Picture Classes.  Project Life is very new to me… I like it, but it's a little out of my element.  I'm a little behind, but I did finish my starter page and Week 1 (will be posted Read More
