Memorial Day 2012


I made this red, white, and blue USA button bouquet in honor of all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I am fortunate and grateful to live in this country.

Velvet Ribbon Seashore Bookmarks

I absolutely adore Somerset Life magazine...one issue featured gorgeous velvet ribbon bookmarks along with a tutorial. They are very quick and easy to make. I made these for gifts...perfect for summer beach reading.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!






This past Saturday (5/5/12) was National Scrapbooking Day! I spent the day working on a project shown on the website "Life on the Scrapbeach". It features a mini album scrapbook in a box...and you create the box out of chipboard...the mini album doesn't come out of the box but rather it is attached to the left hinged side of the box...very clever. I purchased the instructions that were downloadable and got to work! A day of scrappin...oh, what a joy!!

Happy Mother's Day

This is the card I created for my mom for Mother's Day. It features some lace we found at a local antique show where a delightful lady sold me a stash of antique lace from her grandma in England. It is a stash of gorgeous vintage lace and was a little expensive so I use it only on very special creations...there's not much more special than my mom so...Happy Mother's Day!
