Collage Scrap Cardmaking

Since I got into scrapbooking and cardmaking, I've amassed a giant amount of paper scraps. Many are too big to just throw away, so I decided to do something with my favorite ones. I made some lovely quick and easy cards, using a white card base and combing Graphic 45's "A Ladies' Diary" and pieces of inexpensive doilies. The scraps of coordinating papers and the doilies, overlap making an interesting collage for most any occasion card. I love to use them for birthdays and anniversaries.

Try it yourself with coordinating papers and bits of doilies or even lace or ribbon to embellish your collage card.

Have fun...enjoy.

One Beautiful Stamp Several Lovely Cards

Great Impressions makes this great rose trio stamp number G454. I have had the stamp for awhile but what I really wanted was to color it in red using my Tombow Markers and I finally got the exact right color and love the finished card.
Before I got the chance to color these roses in red, I used my orange and it looks lovely too.
I have already showed you the lovely pink card with lace and the Stampabilities, ballerina silhouette number GR1160, I have to show it to you again.
It's lovely and so perfect for a little girl's birthday!
One stamp or maybe two, but great looks, with a bit of a change! I love versatility...don't you?

Fashionable Pop Up Box

I so enjoy up-cycling cigar boxes, but one day, while shopping at my local Michaels, I found a wooden box marked down. I bought it and put it aside.
I've used Graphic 45 "A Ladies Diary" for several of my cigar boxes, including those I gave my plastic surgeon to donate for cancer research. Those papers make any box decorative. Now, I combined my lovely lady of the 20's from the Cricut "Art Deco" cartridge in this box as a pop up. My latest box has turned into a vintage fashion show!

World Card Making Day Today!

I'm lovin working in my art/craft room! That Curtain Call Box using the Cricut Art Deco Cartridge gave me more ideas. When I cut the fabulous 1920's car (Car 2 page 31) at 3" and place it in front of the or landscapes by Sheena Douglass' collections, I get a whole new card series.

I'm so ready for World Card-Making Day! I could work on these all day, such fun! Are you ready??
