About Me

Welcome to my little slice of heaven… ! Thanks for stopping by!  Wanted to share a bit about what makes me… me!

Who am I?

A simple and creative soul who loves to create cards, gift jars, scrapbooks and whatever else you can do with Paper, Ink and Scissors!

Why Paper Crafting?

You are kidding right?  There is so much you can do with paper, glue, scissors and ribbon… and you can create whimsical beautiful gifts… It’s my favorite art form and the sky is the limit with creativity… from vintage to modern to geometrical looks… there’s something in paper crafting for everyone… from journaling to card making to scrapbooking to gift giving… such a delight!  Want to join in the fun? psl hearts

Why Digital Scrapbooking?
Why not?  It saves so much mess clean up!!! Actually I dabble in mixing traditional card making/ scrapbooking with digital scrapbooking – which is called Hybrid scrapbooking (my head is spinning!)… it’s where you mix digital scrapbooking with traditional scrapbooking…

But really, I can be my own designer and if I need a stamp size to be smaller or bigger, My Digital Studio by Stampin’ Up! really saves the day!  So easy… So fun… and no mess!

The software I use to digital scrapbook has to be easy… although I dearly love photoshop, photoshop elements… they are expensive and worse I spend hours and hours trying to get a graphic to layout on a page well…I use a tool called My Digital Studio from Stampin’ Up!  All and I repeat All of the scrapbook pages and graphics at this website were created by this tool.  My Digital Studio is the simplest most flexible tool for scrapbooking digitally and I love the fact that I do not have to spend gazillions of $$ to make a nice looking scrapbook…  it’s the best investment I have made yet!

I am a web designer with a big design background… so digital scrapbooking lends itself naturally to me and I find it most relaxing. I enjoy playing christian music and simply focusing on a verse or two while I scrapbook/ journal…

Keep it fast and fabulous:

My life gets busy quickly and I find myself getting pulled in so many directions… so… I focus on fast and fabulous projects… looking for ways to make cards, scrapbook pages and journals under 30 minutes or so…  Let’s face it, as ladies in this whacky modern culture, who has time to spend all day on a layout… so I try to share projects that pack a big punch but are simple and inexpensive to create…

My favorite bible verses to dwell on are:

  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.
    – Phillipians 4:13
  • Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
    – Psalm 37:4
  • Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. – John 15: 4
  • Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your  Father knowing it.  And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to Him than a whole flock of sparrows. – Matthew 10:29-31
  • As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.  – Psalm 103:12

I hope I can touch your hearts deeply and help you enjoy God’s blessings and paper crafting as an art form! So grab a cup of coffee and let’s begin our creative journey!
