Jamaican Dinner ~ Scrappin' Jubilee

 Another creative layout from Scrappin' Jubilee:
"This one is a very simple layout that only requires cute paper and embellishments...no machines!  I used Paper Studio's A Day at the Beach paper from Hobby Lobby.  The flower chipboard pieces are Me & My Big Ideas Surfshop.  Then I added a wide ribbon and Me & My Big Ideas jewel letters.  Voila!"

Need Vintage Tags??? Thanks for this wonderful resource, Mary :-) Twisted Papers

You know how sometimes when you meet a person, you feel like you have known the person forever???  It doesn't happen often but when it does, it's such a nice surprise.  I met a great gal yesterday at my LSS, Mary. Mary and I have so much in common.  She shared this link with us; and, I have to share it with you all.

When I am making my mini albums, I need tags and more tags and then even more tags..... I stamp, I decorate, I create.  Mary has shared Twisted Papers with us. Twisted Papers is an online store with downloadable vintage images at very affordable prices.  From the Twisted Papers web store:
Welcome to Twisted Papers we provide you with the best quality downloadable vintage images, CDs and collage sheets at the most affordable prices.

So with your morning cuppa,  give Twisted Papers a visit.  You won't be disappointed. I will never have to search for tag art again.  Thanks so much, Mary :-)

Wordbook #1 ~ EASTER

This is one of 2 mini books I made as gifts for Easter...... The 1st wordbook spells Easter.  I used the DCWV stack "Songbird".  The tags were created on a Cricut Imagine with the Nursery Tales cartridge.  The butterfly and bunny border were cut with Martha Stewart punches. Accents were done with Liquid Pearls by Ranger........





Visit Gallery 1 to see this wordbook.  Return tomorrow to see my second wordbook, Bunny.  Have a wonderful Easter weekend :-)

3 Sheets of CardStock = 3 Cards ~ Created by Beverly





My friend, Beverly, is truly an artist........ There isnt a craft she doesnt do well; nor, a project she doesn't finish with 110% perfection!  Just looking at cardstock, sets her creativity flowing.  She is an inspiration to our group at the LSS.  We tease her because always has a few projects going.  As the owner of a LSS, there isn't a day when Bev hasn't inspired someone or sparked their creativity. Here are her latest creations........ 3 different style cards, all created with just 3 pieces of cardstock...... Thanks so much for sharing with us all Bev:-)
