My name is Jennifer Picard and I am "addicted" to paper crafting. I am a very busy mom of 3 and love how card making and scrapping have been able to help me find some "me" time.
Interests: card making, scrapbooking, and teaching others how to be creative whether it be through make up or paper crafts.

It's been awhile since I have had the chance to play along with a challenge blog, but one of my favourites has always been the Global Design Project. When I saw that their challenge this week was a colour one, I just knew I needed to find some time in my craft room. Now if I am being honest when I first saw the new Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colours several months ago I wasn't sure if I was going to love them, but once I got them in my hands I absolutely have fallen in love with them. I... Continue reading

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you today that I am participating in a blog hop with some amazing stamping friends. This hop focuses on Stampin' Up's awesome Paper Pumpkin Kit and we will all be showing you alternate project examples using elements from May's Kit. The kit this month was designed with the help of Stampin' Up's very own co-founder Shelli Gardner. Shelli always has had such a beautiful design aesthetic, usually lots of vintage elements, soft neutral colour tones, lots of layers and texture. This kit is certainly true to her style and I had...

It's the same story for me every year in May when it comes to my paper crafting goals; use up the paptterned papers I have been hoarding and focus on inking up those stamps sets that will be retiring from the Stampin' Up! Catalogue. Now as a demonstrator I was able to get my hands on some upcoming new items that will be released in the 2019-2020, however I have been really good and set my preorder aside, until now. TGIF Challenges was the perfect excuse to pull out a fabulous new stamp set called Free As A Bird. It... Continue reading

I personally, rarely CASE something exactly, but love that I can be... Continue reading
