Adventures in Crafting: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

I recently received another 24 pack of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I know that everyone on the Interwebs raves about Copics.  I've been just unwilling to invest that much while I'm learning.  Of course, I didn't expect to want a 2nd pack of these either.  Luckily, I found a great sale, and will be waiting… Continue reading Adventures in Crafting: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Adventures in Cardmaking: Mouse Wishes

Adventures in Crafting: Stamp Sketch Challenge

Another new adventure!  I'm trying out using sketches to create cards.  A sketch is just that, an easy diagram of a card layout. It gives you a place to start.  I typically look at a stamp set and an idea comes to mind.  Or I watch a video, and the other crafter's card or technique,… Continue reading Adventures in Crafting: Stamp Sketch Challenge

Bright BDay Card from Excess Scraps

I keep looking at my growing scraps, and feel the need to purge!  I haven't come to the point where I'm willing to just throw those colored pieces of paper and card stock away, so I used a little to create this fun little card. What do you do with your excess scraps?

Inspired Birthday Balloon Cards

I absolutely love watching YouTube crafting videos! And Jennifer McGuire is one of my favorites. Tonight, instead of just binge watching while I worked on a card or two, I decided to make a bunch inspired by this video. I made 9 cards, mostly for birthdays and congratulations (I keep discovering one more person's birthday,… Continue reading Inspired Birthday Balloon Cards

Here is a little something I threw together this morning. I haven't decided whether to put them on cards or to… Continue reading Inspired with Summer Stamping
