About Me

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'!

MFP: Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV 84

Hi all:
Just a really quick post today.
At http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/tutorial-time-on-speedy-tv-challenge-84 the challenge tutorial was to learn how to make "oriental lanterns."  An easy-peasy project right?  Wrong....I once had a paper crimper. I bought it many years ago.  And it sat on a shelf for many years after that. Collecting dust, being move from the shelf to the drawer, then into a box, then back up on a shelf.  Until one day when I was doing some reorganization, I said to myself "it's trash, I never even use it, not even occassionally."  So, into the trash it went.  Never regretted tossing it....until now. LOL

And so I "made do."  I used my MS scoring board to make score marks; which I then folded back and forth into mountain/valley folds.  I added a couple of strips of paper to the top and bottom; stretched them somewhat and  then adhered them to my page.  Not the best looking oriental lanterns, but I think that they're "recognizable."

Until later.

Cute card. I very seldom use mine also. Probably less than 5 times in 8 years. I don't think of ever using it. . Thanks for joining TTSTV.
