About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Tim Holtz's Tags 2012

Hello fellow scrappy people! I just wanted to share a pic of the tag for May:
Supplies used: stamped image, Stampin' Up! Early Expresso, Ink It Up Chocolate Brown, I Am Roses, Glossy Accents, handmade stick pin, spool die cut, and twine I think it turned out well, even though I didn't use the tissue paper technique with the stamping. I look forward to the monthly challenge of re-creating his tags. Sometimes, I have to admit though, that I don't follow his technique and just do my own thing...(shhh, sometimes it's because I don't have the supplies and other times, I'm just being lazy and think that I can do it a different way!) But isn't that the whole idea? Thanks for stopping by - I hope to see you here soon! Renee

Lil PixieGurl

Hi fellow blogsters: Just wanted to take a moment to post a little card that I recently made. I can't say where I got the image (I think it was used in a Friday Nite Challenge over at Scraps of Color), but she sure is ca-ute! I wanted to make a card that was not cluttered; so as not to take away from the image itself. So I only added a few flowers and a sentiment.
Supplies used: white GeorgiaPacific cardstock as the card base, DCWV Luxury Stack, I am Roses Gardenias, Copic and Elementz markers and white flat-back pearls. Be sure to stop by again and leave comments. I'd like to hear from you! Until next time, Hugs+Kisses Renee

Robert Jackson Digital Expressions Challenge: Pt 2

Hello out there in BlogLand! This is the second card created for this week's challenge (Anything Goes; except use yellow, peach and brown in your design) at RJDE:
Supplies used: white card stock, RAKd Artistic Trading Card courtesy of Miss Sharon S., RJ Little Skater Dude image, Copic and Bic markers . I really like trying to keep up with the challenges on other blog sites. It gives me practice, practice, practice! Plus, like I've said before, it make me wanna keep up with my own litle blog. And someday, when I 'grow'up....I might reach 100 followers! (Smile) Hopefully, this gives you some inspiration to do some leisurely blog-hopping. And you'll make your way over to the new Robert Jackson site. The design team is really working hard to make it a great place and I, for one, am having fun! Ta-ta for now with Hugs+Kisses Renee

RJDE Anything Goes Challenge

Hi good scrappy people: There's another crafty challenge over at ROBERT JACKSON DIGITAL EXPRESSIONS. It's their "Anything Goes" Challenge. You can now enter three, yes I said three, projects now. So that gives you more chances to win some wonderful images from Robert Jackson and other scrappy goodies. WhooooHooo! This is one (yeah, I'm hoping to make a few more projects before the deadline) that I completed first:
I haven't added a sentiment yet. That'll come later, when I decide who I'm giving it to. Supplies used: DCWV yellow cardstock, Best Occasions tiny polka-dotribbon, Bo Bunny FlutterButter, Delilah & Alissa patterned paper collection and Copic markers To make it easier on myself for this challenge, I've decided to try to do projects in the colors suggested for baby, woman and maybe a man or boy....No real ideas on designs yet though. Stay tuned... Hugs+Kisses Renee
