Father’s Day T-Shirt



I LOVE THESE Father’s Day Cards! I made an oragami folded tshirt and adhered it to the top of my card! There is also a word window revealing the sentiment “Father’s Day”. Here’s the template I used! http://art-smart.ci.manchester.ct.us/how_to/how_to_hi_shirt.html

My First Sale!!!!


I had my very first sale on Etsy!!! I have to say good-bye to my mini 3×3 card set 😦 I’m so excited! I should make more of these for the vendor fair!

Modified Look Inside Card



I wasn’t very please with the original Look Inside Card. So, I changed it up a bit!

Branding…




I’m trying to create my “look”, otherwise known as “branding”. I wanted something that was a little whimsical, but straightforward and clean to represent my art! So, here are the results! Hope you like it!

My Etsy Shop!!!!

I just created my very own Etsy shop! I’ve added the cards I made for the vendor sale, assuming that I won’t sell anything. I know that’s pretty pessimistic of me, but my main goal is to pick up new customers, not sell my cards.

SO, if you want to check it out, here’s the link:

"Scrapbooking is cheaper than therapy"…



Or is it???

I just had some friends over, “The Jesses”, and I had way too much fun for a Monday night! Nothing is better than snacking, crafting and laughing with your girlfriends! Screw pedicures and shopping…the scrapbooking therapy is THE BEST! They’re gonna kill me for posting these 😉 I have such great friends!!!!

Another Heat Embossing find…

I just discovered, while I was making my ATC, that if I ink up the stamp a lot (like 7 times) and stamp the image on regular cardstock, I can pour embossing powder over it and it sticks! Then I can heat it! Nothing special needed… Isn’t that cool? Just thought I’d share! Maybe it’s the dry desert heat/climate, but it worked!
