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.

Sympathy Card

My Mom's Friend, Barb, passed away the other night. She was in her mid 50's (?), and had ovarian cancer, that had moved to her other organs. She was told last year December that she wouldn't make it to Christmas (of last year), but she was able to live for another 8 months. Just last week, after being on the waiting list for a few months, she was able to go to Hospice.

This is the card that I made for Barb's Life partner, Sue, another good friend of my mom's.

Lattice Card base is from Just Sharing (Linda)
Behind it, I took a clear vellum, and used purple and blue inks to color it, then backed it with white paper (so on the inside, you don't see the vellum) but I didn't want this to be see through (the lattice.. Just thought it was a really neat design!)
Branch cut from Home Decor.
Flowers on branch are Flora Doodles Jeweled Florettes
Top paper is Creative Memories (came in a pack that I got from going to a crop), and embossed with the cuttlebug hearts folders (that came with a cutting die.. Can't remember the name)
Butterflies.. From Hong Kong.
Thinking of You is from Alphalicious

(this card was inspired by 2 other cards, and I kinda combined them with my own twist - Click on their names to see their cards!. Card by DC Scrapper And, card by DJ1952 )
