A Pocketful of Sunshine! 

Social forces influenced my crafting behavior. The title was inspired by the movie Easy A.  It was background noise while I was working. I liked it! I even laughed out loud a couple of times.   Especially during this scene… I’ll admit I was humming it and probably dancing a little bit. When the song was… Continue reading A Pocketful of Sunshine!

Imagine Sunflowers!

I will miss doing it and wanted to test out my skills filming my… Continue reading Imagine Sunflowers!

True Love…

I was going to clean up my craft room and got distracted after I found a basket of Cricut die cuts.

My craft room will have… Continue reading True Love…

Cardabilites Sketch Reveal #126

I’m branching out a bit and found the cardabilites blog with this fun sketch. It’s simple and I can use my scraps. Here’s the sketch… I don’t like a lot of bling on my cards, so I skipped the cluster embellishment. I added a small gem and embossed a few of the images with copper… Continue reading Cardabilites Sketch Reveal #126

June 2015 Card Sketch Challenge

This was definitely a challenge for me since the sketch didn’t really “hit” me. While I was cleaning up my work space, I found some of the swapped twinchies I’ve received in the swaps in the Club Scrap forum. (I hope you ladies don’t mind, but those mini pieces of flair look so cute on… Continue reading June 2015 Card Sketch Challenge
