Upcoming Case Study Anniversary

As I have been learning more about paper crafting and finding inspiration on the internet, I have come across this great “Case Study” group that sends out frequent emails to inspire and challenge.  They have an upcoming blog hop anniversary and I wanted to share that information.  Here is the 411…



Whatsup July?

Happy July!  The weather in Minnesota is unseasonably cool.  It feels more like fall than summer!

I just received a stamp and die haul from i Heart Papers.  They had a moving sale and I was able to purchase some Lawn Fawn sets that I have been wanting.  Last night I was able to work on some cards.  I am making a batch of the same card to use for a card swap at the Rochester Scrapbooking Company.  I will post a picture of one of them soon.  I used inspiration from Dawn at dawnsstampingthoughts.net for a slider card and then incorporated the theme “celebrate” into it.  Lots of fun!

I am looking forward to working on some more card creations this evening after my church group.


New to Blogging

So here I am at 38 years old feeling like I am reinventing myself again.  I used to do quite a bit of paper crafting and then life kind of got in the way.  I have since picked up the tools of this art again and am totally in love with all of the new products, techniques and tools.  What an amazing online community there is too!

One of the main companies that I am swooning over is Lawn Fawn!  I have been able to create the best cards using their stamps, dies, and ideas that they provide on their YouTube channel and also by all of those other creative beings out there.

I would thoroughly enjoy being a part of a design team or the Lawnscaping Challenge Team.  However, I just received an email calling out for individuals to be a part of the Facebook Inspiration Team (FIT).  I think that would be so much fun!

I am going to attempt to keep this blog going and add pictures of my card creations.  Stay tuned…
