Embossing with or against the GRAIN...

OH my gosh, I did not know about embossing with the grain of paper or against the grain.  You learn something everyday! Score BIG with embossing (CTMH)

Mini Album -- inspired by My Sisters Scrapper

I made a mini album after being inspired by the YouTube video posted by Ginger in My Sisters Scrapper where she makes a paper bag vertical mini album.  Look at the pics of my final project.  I only added three pages but have a lot of space for adding pictures and journaling cards.  I made this mini album for my daughter who loves hearts and wings -- you can see this image on the cover.

Motivational Styles; clean, simple, beautiful!

It is so inspiring to see techniques and styles from various artists/people with creative talent for scrapbooking/cardmaking/etc.  I'm most inspired by ideas that I can easily incorporate while getting motivated to continue my creative journey.  Ali Edwards has such a wonderful style that is simple yet creative; I find it easy to incorporate into my scrapbook album pages.  Cheers to Ali for her success and creative talent.

Conditioning your Cricut cutting mat

OMG...look at this video from cricutdan.blogspot.com with an ingenious technique that will save you money and hassles when you use a new cutting mat with your Cricut machine.  This would have saved me a couple of headaches for sure. 


Happy scrapbooking and crafting!

Gone for too long

I've been away from my blog for too long.  I can't blame my busy schedule...because I choose how to use my time.  However, my goal this summer, is to make more time to scrapbook and try some new ideas and ideas stuck in my head for card making.  Stay tuned. 

In the meantime, check out http://perfectpapercrafting.com/brand-ambassador-joy-tracey/ to learn how the "Perfect Layers Rulers are designed with a patented “catch lip” that simply "bumps up" against the pictures."
