On Your Wedding Day

I saw a card online awhile back -- had a ribbon with two rings. Loved the idea from the start -- just something to give a wedding card a little something else. :)

So when the card sketch for our card lifters group turned out to be a basic rectangle with a window and a ribbon, I decided to go for it. The background is dry embossed (wedding bells) -- and I lifted the tag in the middle just a little to give the card a little more dimension. TFL :)

It's a start

So yeah -- I've been having a blast playing with my grad pictures -- from way back when! :p LOL -- but at least they're finally going into a scrapbook already -- later is better than never.

Here's a look at my first page. I still have to buy embellishments and rub-ons for most of the pages, so you're gonna have to wait until I complete them 100%. This page is finished though. I used a sketch I found online over a year ago, so I have no idea where I got it from!!! If you recognize the sketch, let me know -- and I'll give you the credit! :) TFL

Crocheting...BIG

Going a little different today -- away from paper crafting. This is a rug I've been working on for a few weeks now. I tried a few new techniques -- love how it turned out! :)

Card for a Loss

Yay!!!!! I do believe blogger is back!!! :) After a few weeks of issues -- seems to be working just fine again!!! :) So I'm back to posting....

We had a card making crop with some kids a few weeks ago. Everyone brought some of their stamps and stuff -- it was a total blast, despite the fact that I actually didn't even create one single card! I just helped the little kiddies with some of the techniques like stamping and embossing. And idea here, a fold there. Honestly I'm always amazed at what those kiddies come up with -- they inspire me!!!!

And of course, I couldn't resist taking the opportunity to stamp some images onto some blank paper. I figured I would use them later on -- one way of the other. But they've been lying in a box for the past few weeks -- I've taken them out from time to time -- totally loved them again, but no mojo or inspiration as how to use them in a card!!!

I needed a Thinking of You card for a cousin of mine who recently lost their baby girl. Honestly I was stumped...until I saw my stamped images. This card was soeasy to make -- it probably had a lot to do with the colours as well. It seemed like whatever I needed was right there -- no digging around in my stash for hours until I found something I could use... I hope this is a sign that my mojo is back! :) TFL
