A gorgeous color combination and the use of sequins, beads, rhinestones, gemstones and pearls! Nice combination, isn’t it?!
Truth is, I love these colors and as soon as I saw the medallions on the shoes, I thought stamped medallions and rhinestones. Then I saw Mariana Grigsby’s card and there it was! So [...]
Oh, I love so many of the color inspirations that are presented for challenges in the spring. I saw this inspiration photo at the Ribbon Reel Challenge. You can visit here.
I began my project with a vintage image from the Swedish company called Pion (peony). This image came from a sheet [...]
A monday challenge and it’s wednesday afternoon.. hmmm, pretty good!! It’s a round or square challenge this week. While I often choose to work in the round, today it’s the square I’m going for. It isn’t ‘speaking’ to me, which is always a good reason to give it a go!
I wanted [...]
Todays’ Papertrey Ink challenge is about computer generated sentiments on die cuts!! You can see Erin Lincolns’ very clear instructional video here. I started to think about how I could make this challenge useful for myself. I need new ID tags for my luggage, that are distinctive enough to quickly identify my cases and that [...]

I’m in a soft pastel mood this morning and that mood found its’ way onto paper.
Soft sunrise colors that are very soothing. Since this has been a week of drama in our house, soothing is very good! I used these Copic markers.
and the sentiment and trail from [...]
I really want to spend the evening fiddling with lots of color combos. The effects of the day are slowing me down, so I don’t know how far I’ll get. It’s a good idea to get this post up before the evening activities begin (and my eyelids close)!
If you haven’t visited the site yet, [...]
It’s Monday and Papertrey Ink has a great new video on graduated backgrounds. Nicole Heady had done a super job and you can see her video here. This is my first take on this idea.
These are the Copic markers I used for this card.
I used a sheet [...]
Rosette. That word is music to my ears. I love flowers of all sorts and they’re the most consistent contenders for space on anything I create. While it is the focus of this challenge, it is the finishing touch on this card!
I used a distress dots stamp from Stampin Up, with [...]
