Hey-ho DADDY-O!!

Here is a RETRO-themed Paperbag Album that I created with actual Vintage ephemera and other embellishments...the Paper is SEI. I didn't really do ANY stamping in this book (maybe one or 2 words). This is mostly all paper piecing. Enjoy!

Here is a quick little card I made for a Card Exchange at my local Paper Arts Shoppe (my 2nd home! ha ha!). Of course, I use my MOST FAVORITE product in the whole WORLD--CRAFTY SECRETS!...well, I used the Clear Art Stamps for stamping and did alittle heat embossing too.

The paper wasn't was from "me & my big ideas" Vintage Collage Paper Pad that I had laying around. I realized that I was out of GOOD CARD STOCK and had to use what I had (some budget, value, flimsy stuff....ugh! Yes, I am soooo embarrassed!)

Of course, when you use "yucky" cheap can just tell the card kept tipping over from the weight of the brads and layering...

I love to ALTER's so much fun!

Here is a "once-ugly" basic business card holder from Office Max, it was burgundy and very plain. I didn't take "before" pix...but, I'm sure you have seen them.

I painted it white (like any SHABBY object should be...) and added Vintage reproduction images...and tiny picket fence (that I found at Big Lots for a BUCK!..after I distressed it, of course!) I added rhinestones for BLiNG!

Here is a "Magical Fairy" Card I was trying out with my new Crafty Secrets Fairy stamps. I used paper from Crafty Secrets Earthy paper pad & Old Olive CS from Stampin' Up!. The flower punch is also Stampin' Up! I used Stickles to add some glitter BLiNG!

Here is my newest creation--a 6 inch Squash is almost like making a quilt, since you piece the triangle pieces to the book. This was made with ALL Crafty Secrets paper and stamps. I am teaching a few classes on this at a local Paper Arts shoppe next month. I call this one "Moments in Life"....

Here is a Baby Book that I created with Daisy-D's paper & Crafty Secrets cut-outs. I just love the VINTAGE look. This mini book measures 4"x4" when closed. It is very easy to create and a very quick project. It can be made in any size.

In the beginnings....

Oh! How I love to create & stamp Paper Art projects...I think it is a way to bring out your inner soul. I have always been busy drawing as a young child.

In High School, I wanted to be a Costume Designer and go to an ART & Design School in California...which didn't happen (other things came up!). I did manage to take several Design, Art, & Illustration classes at the local college. People always told me my sketches & ideas were outstanding and how creative I was! I even won an award at one Employer for "MOST CREATIVE EMPLOYEE".

I did continue to draw and sketch and create...on paper and fabric over the years. I have designed some costumes for a Community Theatre, volunteered as Wardrobe Coordinator for a local Cable Access TV show years ago, made baby quilts for a non-profit group "Sewing for Babies" (they donate handmade quilts to various local hospitals for preemies and stillborn babies).

I love HOW there are now so many resources available to create Artsy projects. The possibilities are endless!!!!
