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!

New Challenge Blog - Not Just Cards

I am excited because this is my first challenge as part of the design team for a wonderful new challenge blog called Not Just Cards.   Our goal is to make other projects other than just cards with the digital images from our sponsors. We have some great sponsors signed up for our challenges who are offering some wonderful prizes.  

For my first project I have made a gift bag with a topper using a digital stamp by  from 

Isn't she a very sweet little girl, her name is Alannah.  You can find the digital image here

This is a closer look at the topper.

You can find the pattern and directions for this topper bag at Stamp Talk with Tosh. The butterfly is a die cut by Spellbinder.
