Precious Memories of Summer

I like scrapbooking my grandkids.  Towards the end of an album, I often find myself short on coordinating papers, so I challenge myself to find Table Scraps to that they work well together.

Notepad Holder with Dreamy Creamy We Are 3 Collection

Happy Saturday!  When I first saw the Dreamy Creamy Collection, I couldn't help but fall in love with the Dreamy Butterfly Overlay.  I knew I wanted to play to see how I can use that overlay to fit a project just perfectly.   I chose the latest free file from Dreaming Tree - Notepad Holder.  Wanted more control as to where my butterflies landed, so played around with Print2Cut feature on my eClips - sized the paper and the butterflies - then moved my svg file around the butterflies to get them to print and cut in just the right spot.  Voila!  I love how it looks so much, on my way to make a few more for Mother's Day gifts.  Think next I will try to resize the file to hold some of my cards - then make them to match.  Be watching for them!

Afterthough!  Trying to think of what I will put in the container for Mother's Day - my kids are not card senders, so cards would not be appreciated.  My afterthought is fill it with my own created notepaper to match with butterflies.  Can't wait to play!

Fishing Birthday Card for Brother-in-Law

Spring has sprung!  Are you getting outside?  I know I would find my brother-in-law on the lake during his free time - so today I'm sharing his birthday card.  I used Pastel Burlap (We Are 3) for the background - love how it looks like jean materials.

Also found if using Color Correction on Word, you can make the "jean" look more or less distressed - kind of fun....but beware, tough to make a decision as to how your want your jeans to look! LOL! Here's just three examples of how one digital paper can have different looks with just a couple clicks on the mouse.

Paper Ala Mode - Celebrations

Today's challenge at The Outlawz - Paper Ala Mode - is Celebrations.  So I'm celebrating friendship - using Little Angel Friends from Sami Stamps and the sentiment from Drehi is Angels Part 5. I had some fun with this one because it's one layer - I don't often make one-layer cards.  I did from time to time before I knew cardmaking as a hobby!  LOL! Do join the challenge at Paper Ala Mode!

Easter Card - Quilled Flowers


Today I am sharing a simple and quick card using Table Scraps.

Paper Piecing with Spring Letters

Hello there!

Today I want to share my DT inspiration made using the beautiful new We Are 3 release digital papers.  Spring Letters are beautiful papers that can be used in lots of different ways.  You can see here, I used Sweet Scents for both the flower and the background on the left side.  I enlarged the paper for the background - and shrunk the paper for the flower - different effects, but well coordinated.  The image I used is Ladybugs by Bugaboo.

Easter Card

Hi, Everyone

Today I'm sharing an Easter card I made with papers and images from We Are 3.  I used paper from the Floral Expressions Collection and Pastel Burlap Collection - the image is from Bunny Accessories.

My Adobe Photoshop died last week (or my computer killed it - verdict still out).  Since I've been using Gimp.  I used it several years ago to teach digital scrapbooking, but with updates, it's been a bit of a learning curve.  This is the first image I had time to really play with - and I'm very happy with the results.  Saving some pennies - GIMP it is for my preferred photo editor!  For those of you who want to play - GIMP is free!
