Can't tell you how much I love that Big Shot I bought last December!
|A Bouquet of Thanks|
I love it when I can add something pretty to a card's interior.
|A Royally Cute Couple|
Paper Piecing can be a coloring-challenged gal's best friend...
|Love on the Frozen Tundra|
... and I felt like my paper piecing went to a whole new level this year.
|Warm Socks, Warmer Wishes|
I loved stretching my card-making skills by playing along with a number of different challenge blogs...
|Nuts About You|
.... including trying a multi-element sketch at Mojo Monday...
|You Hold the Key to My Heart|
... channeling Tim Holtz for a Shopping Our Stash challenge....
|Be the Star You Are|
... and using limited supplies to meet a make-your-background challenge while on vacation.
|Stars Fit for a Hero|
OWH Sketches are my inspiration for Any Hero cards.
Stenciling with paste was one of the many things we learned at Simon Says CREATE 2014!
|All Alone in the City|
I was so excited with this cityscape created with a stair-step fold and Paper Smooches dies.
These last three cards, which were made for friends and family, also have a special place in my crafting heart.
|From Darkness to Light|
Last year marked the debut of the Words 2 Scrap By challenge blog, and I was thrilled with the way
these blended Distress Inks turned out on this card I made for our W2SB August challenge.
This card was sent to a dear friend starting a new school year. :)
Dad turned 80 in 2014. So, I used some computer
word processing skills to make a card with a mock newspaper front.
Making personalized sentiments is one of my favorite things to do.
This seemed like a great sentiment for my nephew's 14th birthday.
Jan. 1 - Jan. 21
May your New Year be full of creative inspiration! As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
