Paper Craftin with Erica

I want to wish all of my blog visitors a Happy Holiday!  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Solstice, and Happy New Year.  Did I miss any celebration?  From our home to yours... Stay tuned for more creations by yours truly.  I have signed up for courses at Big Picture Classes to Read More

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 have a couple things to share.  First, I bought a new camera.  I now have a DSLR Canon EOS 7D.  Woot!  Woot!  This camera is very advanced, however, and I'm still trying to figure it out.  What's really new to me is the fact that it uses a CF card in lieu of an Read More

Over at CMCC, my personal creative outlet, we are particpating in a Smash book challenge/group/inspiration.  It's amazing what we can do with Smash books.  I didn't even know they made books just for smashing!  How cool is that?  Instead of making a generic book, I broke down and bought two "Smash" books... one for me 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
