Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Be Unique - ATC

I have an upcoming ATC swap that I made this ATC for.  The theme of the swap is a "crown".  I found this fun vintage frog digital stamp at Graphic Fairy. The crown I cut out of a strip of crown washi tape by Tim Holtz. The swirl design is also a rubber stamp by Tim Holts.  The stamp I used for the dotted background is called stoneware texture by JRL Designs. The definition is cut out of a old dictionary and I stamped the Be Unique with a set of single alphabet rubber stamps.  

Hope my my swap partner lives my design.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find some time to create to day.
