About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

I love Paris

I created this tag for an upcoming swap which required a key in the design of the tag.  I had fun layering the tag.  I used the following to create the tag.  

  • Background - several colours of metallic Inka Gold
  • Background - stamped with jigsaw puzzle stamp from my stash
  • Keys - were die cuts that were layered with several layers of embossing powder to give them a metal look
  • Washi tape with a Paris theme and one with a key theme
  • Love sentiment stamp from my stash
  • Alphabet stamp from my stash
  • Tim Holtz Eiffel Tower stamp 
  • Heart stamp from my stash 

Hope my swap partner enjoys the tag.  Thank you for stopping by.
