About Me

Using bits and pieces of paper I have created many cards and scrapbook pages to share with my family and friends. Occasionally, I have taught classes in scrapbooking and was a Design Team Leader at a local store. Lately, I have been focusing on creating cards for various challenges.

May Challenges - Just in Time

  


Today I worked on a couple of challenges. First, is the page above of my brother Jim as a little boy about 40 years ago. I entered it in the Creative Scrappers sketch challenge #210. The journaling isn't completed because the page is for my mom's album and I'm going to have her decide what she would like written in the journaling area. I used papers from the Paper Loft's Back Country line. The second page I finished was for A Cherry on Top May supply list and color challenges. This month's color was brown and the supplies I used were: 3 or more pennants, flower, oversized photo, ribbon, and a bird.


I really enjoy working on these old photos and making beautiful pages while accomplishing some of the wonderful challenges that are posted each month.

Baby Boy Congratulations


I created this week's card for the PaperSecrets challenge using monochromatic tones of blues, a rub on sentiment, and fussy cutting the puppy. Every week I'm getting closer to the $50 gift certificate to their store by process of elimination.

This week's challenge card


PaperSecrets card challenge for this week was to use a sketch by PageMaps and 3 items from a list of 6. I chose 3 patterned papers, stamping, and ribbon. I've used scraps left from last year's Easter cards. The sketch was a little harder but I really like the end results.

PaperSecrets Card Challenge


PaperSecrets Blog is hosting a cardmaking challenge. Every week they will post a challenge and each participant must add a pic of their card creation. It starts this week. I almost missed the challenge this week (and it's only week #1) I'm off to a great start. It is an elimination challenge and in order to stay in the competition you must upload your pic by the deadline each week. Here's my first card.
