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'!

Papertrey Ink: Make it Monday #238

Hi everyone:

Since I'm done with all of the projects and orders that have taken up a lot of my time during the holidays, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.  Trying to play catch up with my reading on some of my favorite blogs and joining in on the fun and challenges.

This week, I decided to join in on the challenge over at http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/ of Papertrey Ink.  The video tutorial for this week was to use the ombre technique.  And if I remember correctly, that means colors that shade into each other. Fun and easy peasy!

It's a good way to make several cards at once too.  Which is what I did using a 12x12 sheet of textured white cardstock.  And like in the tutorial, I also used my Gelatos by Faber Castell.  A little bit of layering and voila!

Valentine's Day will be here soon and it's a good opportunity to make a few cards for those special people in your life.  So here are a few that I whipped up tonight using one of my favorite dies

Quick. Fun. Easy!

Thanks for stopping by.
