My first time scrapping at the camper was a lot of fun. I made quick and easy word books!

Another Recipe Card

At a Columbus Scrappers crop recently, I won this cute punch that makes mini fruits and veggies. I knew I'd find a use for it in no time flat...and I did!

Becoming a Zindorfian

IN September my bff and I drove to Dayton to attend a workshop by Michelle Zindorf who is absolutely amazing with a brayer and ink.

She made the process seem so very simple and I love the cards we made that day. Here is one that I've since given as a special Thank you to a good friend.

Cards for Children's Hospital Resource Center

I made the following cards for two different projects. One was a card kit swap for the Cricut Board, and the other was for card kits to donate to the Children's Hospital Resource Center, which is a community service project sponsored by the Columbus Scrapper's Board.  The content for both is the same. Make up individual kits, that include all the supplies needed to create a card.  For the hospital, parent's, visitors, or even the kids themselves, can take a few minutes, to relax, escape, and create a card, amidst the stress of their medical procedures.



This is a simple card, using generic CS and a strip pp from Paper Studio. I cut the circles using my nestibilities. The cupcake and sentiment are stamps from Hero Arts , stamped with Memories Black Ink and colored with colored pencils and OMS. The ribbon was a dollar bin find at M's.



For this card, I used generic CS, and ran the black piece through the CuttleBug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Sheer black ribbon atop black satin ribbon (from M's) wrap the card, with a Heart and sentiment cut from my Cricut Die Cut machine.  I stamped the heart with  a Fancy Pants flourish stamp and silver acrylic paint, then added dots with the paint and a stylus around the heart.

Special Events

I made this card for a sweet young couple's wedding...


Pretty patterned paper from the DCWV wedding mat stack, atop shiny glittery DCWV glitter mat stack. Embossed stamped sentiment  atop a scalloped square cut from my Cricut. Add some silvery stickles and tie a sheer silvery ribbon around the base and you have a very pretty card.

Then I needed a card for my In Laws, who were celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary.


More patterned paper from the wedding stack, along with a stamped sentiment and a chipboard flower and bit of bling and it was done!

Scrappin Coco

Our kitty loves scrapping almost as much as I do. She is forever up on my table, rolling around or napping in the middle of all the supplies. Meet Coco, she's a blue eyed Siamese beauty.

Garden Bake

I love making recipe cards. Collecting recipes and cookbooks is another passion of mine. Being able to combine that passion with scrapbooking is serendipity to me!  For this recipe swap, the recipe is on one side of a 4x6 card, and the other side is scrapped.



I found these darling stuffed tomato embellishments by Martha Stewart and knew they had to come home with me! The PP is from a paper slab, CS is from a mat pack, and the Title is stamped using SU! Old Olive ink and CTMH Clear alpha stamps.
