Hi crafty people! I'm back with, you guessed it, another Christmas card featuring some new products from the Papertrey Ink October Release! One of the great things about making all these Christmas cards is that now I'm almost done! I will still mass produce some more in the next month or so, but I have lots of cards ready to go! Have you started on your Christmas cards? How many do you make? I usually make about 75 handmade cards. I used to make them all the same but that's not really my gig. I get bored making a ton...

This weekend is the Scrapbook Expo here in Sacramento and I'm hoping to be able to find the time to pop over there for a bit. I took another crochet class this week too! It's addicting and FUN! Today is my third... Continue reading

Hellloooooo and Happy Saturday! Happy first weekend of Fall!!! YIPPEEEEE! I have college football on in the craft room and it's a beautiful crisp day outside. My hubs is home from his business trip and it's good to see the old guy! LOL. We got up super early and headed up to Apple Hill and got apple donuts and apple cider. The donuts were fabulous with our coffee outside by the lake and we brought some home to enjoy all weekend. And, we escaped before the crowds came up to hang out (it's a destination area). I finished the card... Continue reading

Perfect to make 'artsy' cards and to make cool backgrounds. So many possibilities with this set! I decided to go with a rainbow theme for today - since all I've been posting is Christmas lately! I was ready for something a little different! I created a background of... Continue reading
