Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Asian Flair - Owl Whimsy

The Current Challenge on Owl Whimsy is to use their New Asian Flair stamp!

Here's my "Submission" for the free stamp set!

I started with plain white cardstock, covered it with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Antique Linen) and then printed the stamp.. HINT - Print stamp, THEN ink and crimple. it was a PAIN getting crimpled paper through the printer! Flowers were colored in with Brush Pens, and then also I outlined the vase. "Flowers" are Yarn wrapped around twist ties. I cut a slot on the top of the vase, stuck them in, and then used foam tape to mount on to the background paper - which is from the Far East DCWV stack, but you can't really see it too much. The Japanese Symbol Means "Friend", which was also printed on the crumpled paper. I also used Tim Holtz's Frayed Burlap, as an accent color. The overall size of this card is 7 1/2 x 5. (such odd sizes!)

Thanks for looking!
