About Me

Hello! I have been crafting ever since I can remember. I am retired now, and have gotten more into making handmade cards. I have also done some scrapbooking and a couple orders for wedding invitations. I really enjoyed doing them! Also have a few baby items I have made, used to sew all the time, but the cards have taken over now!

Welcome to my craft room.

This is the place where I keep track of the cards I have made.

Glad you could stop by and take a look.

Some Christmas plates I made using grandchildren's footprints.

My First Wedding Scrapbook

Here are a few pages from " The Wedding Scrapbook".
This book is taking hours to do, there are so many pictures to go through, and then to decide how to display them!!!

But it is very rewarding when you see them all come together!

Wedding Card


This was a card that I was really pleased with how it turned out. The bride was a Victorian paper doll cut out, that I found on the Internet, and then I dressed her in scraps of lace to make the dress, and then trimmed the veil with pearl beads and put a little blush on her face. I then mounted her on two layers of card stock and then fixed her to the front of the card.
This is why I hate to throw anything out, you never know when and idea will come to mind!!

Bridal Shower Card

I like to try and use different things when making cards, and I have a hard time throwing anything that I think I might be able to use!!
This one is made of sample wallpaper. I used a marbled vinyl for the background and then a plain vinyl on top with the stitching marks, and then embellished it with the silver heart and bow. Then made the tag with the words on it.

My motto is " don't throw anything away ," the minute you do then I find a use for it!!! LOL
(there are days that I do have to go through and discard things that I haven't used as I can not stand too much clutter! )
