Hi Birdie Card

It is freezing and snowing here in Minnesota, so it is time to think spring with this fun card...


The cute bird is a stamp from Soaring by... by Your Next Stamp. The bird was colored with some fun NEW colors of Zig watercolor brush markers. This card is based on a sketch by Sketch N Scrap. The floral background pattern paper is by MultiCraft.

Mendenhall Glacier Page

Hello and welcome to my first post of 2020!

Last summer was one of the most eventful of my life with my son's graduation, an Alaska trip, my other son's wedding and so much more! So you will be seeing LOTS of pages over the next few months. This page was Day 4 of our Alaskan cruise where we stopped to Juneau and saw the Mendenhall Glacier.


The pattern paper and most of the products used on this page are by Elle's Studio. I got to use their new Magical Memories acrylic shapes which look like colorful snowflakes. Blue snowflakes were also stamped for a wintery feel.

Tyler's Birthday

Hello and welcome!

Most of December my crafting was dedicated to creating cards, so it is a real joy today that I can finally get back to scrapbooking. Here is a fun page about my son, Tyler's, birthday. Tyler is a big eater and this enormous burger is right up his alley.


I needed some help getting back into scrapping, so I of course went to Rochelle Spears' blog which offered an inspiring sketch. She has teamed up with Stacy who has a great mood board. I was inspired by dark colors with pops of red and the stars in her photos. You can find links to their blogs below.

The pattern paper is by Carta Bella (Cartopia). The silver letters are Thickers and the "happy" embellishment is a die cut by Whimsy Stamps.

Being from Minnesota, where the temperature is currently below zero, sweaters are a must! So I"ll be sending out cards like this all winter long...


This wonderful sweater die is by Hero Arts is definitely a favorite of mine. I added lots of sparkle with green Stickles on the tree, gems and gold embossed sentiment (also by Hero Arts). The fun Nordic background was created with an embossing folder by Taylor Expressions.

Stunning Gold and Black Card

Hello and welcome!

We are so lucky to still have real scrapbook stores here in Minnesota. Last week the Pine City Scrapbooking Company had a super fun Doe's Day Out with hot hard cider, homemade baked goodies and Make N Takes! It was amazing. One of the Make N Takes was this beautiful card.


Black cardstock was run through an embossing folder and gold paint was brushed lightly on the raised areas. A simple but stunning technique - and one of my new favorites! The beautiful sentiment and frame, cut from mirrored gold cardstock, are die cuts by Taylored Expressions.
