The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....
I love Stamping and Scrapping anything that takes glue. I love creating in all aspects of the word!
I cherish my relationships both in my family and in the broader community. I love to be creative in my work and in play. My family inspires me and most of what I do is for them.
See how much I love this cartridge?? Provocraft's cricut cartridge, "Storybook". This is another of my older layouts but I love this cartridge so much that I have to show the work I have done using it. Do you recognize the circle picture frame...again? Click onto the pictures to see a closer view. Many of you already know that I am an avid cardmaker as well as a scrapbooker. I have decided to feature more layouts at this time as I feel there are not enough of us out there putting our scrapbooking work on the blogs, but for those of you who like to see my cards, I will still be posting cards from time to time as I go along.
In this layout you see the details that I am fond of in my work as I layer them on. You may recognize my card style in this layout too as I begin to cross over from cardmaking to scrapbooking, using the tools I originally picked up to use with cards in mind, but thinking out of the box I began using them on my layouts as well. In this layout I have used Spellbinders dies (for the journalling card inside the pocket I created) Mega rectangles, a Martha Stewart border punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders, my wonderful embroidery sewing machine to sew around the some of the pictures and detail mats I added -(notice the bling zipper I used), I added more bling and pearls from KaiserCraft, and some dreamy Fairy Princess Karen Foster pattern paper. All of the tools and products I used can be found at OC Scrapbookers online store
