Krista and Mom

This LO shows Krista and me, Mom. I used patterned paper that I cut so that I could put my borders underneath some of the flowrs and butterflies.
This LO was inspird by the Weekly Challenge (July 2nd) from Practical Scrappers.
I used a border punch and two different decorative edge scissors.

2nd Birthday

This LO shows my niece at her second birthday.

This LO was created with the idea from Sketch Friday, June 18th for Practical Scrappers.

Krajewski Twins

This LO celebrates the arrival of my sister's twins.

It was created to meet two different challenges.

The first is the June 15th sketch for Stuck?!

The second challenge is for the Monthly Challenge for Practical Scrappers. Their June challenge is "Behind Closed Cupboards" In this challenge I had to use something form my cupboards. I used aluminum foil to create my star for part of the background.

Congratulation Card

I created this card with the flowers for the challenge for Practical Scrapers.

I had just read in my Creating Keepsakes how to make flowers.

  • Use a 5X5 piece of patterned dublesided paper.

  • Draw a spiral on it and then sew a zig zag stitch on the line.

  • Next cut between the stiching.

  • Use a pencil to roll the spiral into a circle.

  • Use glue dots to adhere the spiral at each end.

  • Add a brad or pearl in the center.

  • Use paper to add a stem and leaves

  • Attach to you LO or card

For the other flowers I used craft flowers and added green paper for stems and leaves.

Here is the picture of the LO.


My son loved trying his luck at "surfing" while at the Indoor Water Park. This LO was inspired from the Friday sketch from Practical Scrappers.
I tried to also meet a challenge to use something from my cupboard so I used coffee for my title. I used glue to "write" the title. Then I poured unused coffee grounds onto the glue. I liked the brown because the color was perfect for my LO.


Tubing at the indoor waterpark was enjoyed by my kids. In this LO I used glue and loose glitter to make my title. I also used it on some of the circles at the edges of the page. I created this LO for the Glitter and Flocking challenge for Practical Scrappers


I created this LO based on the Friday sketch from june 1st on Stuck?! I painted vinyl for the circle and the title.

Eyelet challenge

I made this LO for the Practical Scrappers challenge to use eyelets. I used eyelets to outline the water in the "river". I also used eyelets underneath my title "Floating" to make it pop.
