Hi. Welcome to my blog. What makes me happy? My husband Shane, quiet moments of content, hearing the pops of my jars sealing when canning, a to-do list with lots of things crossed off of it, time to create, and time to "stalk" creative blogs and how-to videos. I love creating with paper. I've been scrapbooking and creating mini-albums and cards for about 23 years. I have a passion for rubber stamping and I'm happiest when I have time to play with paper and ink. Time for creating is Bliss! Have fun exploring my blog.

This is a card I made for my mom's retirement in May. I used Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers alterations die to create the flowers and added distress ink, diamond dust, and pearls in the flower centers. These were so fun to make! I positioned the acetate clock face for 5:00 since that time now has a new meaning for my mom.
This is a scrapbook/journal book I created for my sister for her birthday. We plan to visit France in the next year or two and I wanted her to have a place to put her thoughts, memorabilia, and photos. It has a lot of cool tags and pockets and flipouts to add memories. Some of the paper is flocked (velvet) and I used ribbons, lace, embossing, and even a door knob in which to open the book. This was a blast to create...I hope she likes it.
