Hi everyone!

First I'd like to apologize to everyone for practically dropping off the face of the internet for two years. After my brother was born two summers ago, I became interested in switching from a "home-schooler" to a "public-schooler". I entered public school for the first time that fall, and became super busy with homework (I had never had any before, and it took some getting used to), friends (I now had more then ever before), and my new little brother. The time I set aside for paper crafting decreased as I explored some of my other interests, such as the cross country team (which I don't know what I would do without), physics, french, and church youth group.

To make a long story (sort of) short, I am now a junior in high school, a member of the highest team in my Irish Dance company, searching for colleges that offer meteorology majors (and french minors), still having fun with my family and friends, excited for summer (who isn't?!), and finally ready to come back from this super long break from crafting.

I have a couple of ideas for projects and videos, but I would greatly value any feedback and ideas that you have to offer. I will start posting new content very shortly, so make sure to check back soon!

Hi Guys!

Guess what... My mom had a baby boy! After 14 years I have a brother! His name is Charlie and he weighed 8 lbs. My sisters and I all say he looks like our dad. :)

You also might have noticed that I redid my blog again. The other design I had just wasn't colorful enough. I hope you like the new design!

Hi guys!

Here's the card for this week. I used the Studio G Wheel of Thanks clear stamp set, and DCWV patterned paper.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hi everyone!

It has been really nice outside lately, and I just started a garden, so I haven't been scraping as much. I have been working on an album for my aunt who's having a baby soon, though. I'll be sure to post some pics of it when I'm done. :)

Anyway, here's the thank you card for this week. I got the inspiration from the fall-winter 2008 Stampin Up! catalog (p. 115). Here's that card:

And here's the card I made from it:



Have fun scraping!

Hi everyone!

Since there are always a lot of birthdays in the spring, I decided to make some birthday invitations. I created a PDF you can just print out, to make these really fast and simply.

Here is the PDF: Birthday Invites

Last month I had the first SSDL challenge, and Shanarun won! Her card was ADORABLE! Thanks so much for participating, Shanarun!

I'll have the next sketch up within the week!

Hi guys!

Here's a card I made yesterday. I used the new Cuttlebug Border Frills embossing folder for the bottom edge. I love the effect!

Hi everyone!

Here's a super quick card I made today. I used the small floral Poolside paper from Making Memories Paperie Collection, Jo-Anns Craft Essentials green ribbon, and Basic Grey's brown chipboard letters.

Looks a little different, huh? I decided to completely redesign by blog. I wasn't too fond of all the dark colors and busyness. I wanted to go with something more open and simple. You can find everything so much quicker. I especially like how the sides of my videos aren't cut off by the narrow space anymore. I also added a "Contact Me" button you can click on to send me private messages. And as you might have noticed, I "discarded" the playlist. It was getting too annoying and distracting.

If you have any suggestions on how I can further improve my blog, make sure to tell me!

Hi guys!

I'm starting a new challenge series on my blog called Same Sketch, Different Look (or SSDL). Here's how it works:

Every month I'll draw a new sketch and make two cards or scrapbook pages that correspond with it.

You make a project using the same sketch.

Upload it to a blog or web site, and post the link in the comments.
On the last of the month, I will choose a winner using

The winning project will be featured on my blog. :)

So here's the sketch for this month:

And here are the two cards I made from it:

Don't forget to upload your photos and comment on this post. The deadline is April 30th, 2010 11:59 PM CST. If I get more then 15 submissions, I might do a giveaway next time! I can't wait to see all you're cards! :)
