Talk Birdie to Me

Golf is not my bag. I can curse loudly (and proficiently) and throw a golf club (kinda far I might add!), but I don’t enjoy playing golf. The sad part is that I’m not a bad golfer. I played a half-assed game at Bringhurst with my kids on Mother’s Day a few years ago. I… Continue reading Talk Birdie to Me

I was hooked when I scrolled through the JFF website and saw the stamptangle images!  The stamptangle line is inspired by the zentangle technique and the images are so beautiful and intricate. The images are gorgeous in black and white, but… Continue reading “Electric” Garden

Doing the Oxide Lift!

No, it’s not a new dance move! My crafty friend Julie at Cape Cod Scrapper shared a pretty spring card featuring the oxide lift technique. She got the idea from this Simon Says Stamp video by Gina K and after watching it I had to try it too. It just so happens that the new monthly… Continue reading Doing the Oxide Lift!
