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.

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!

Ribbon and Bow Challenge at Holly Jolly

It is a Ribbon and Bow challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and I decided to make a gift card holder for this challenge. I used a digital stamp called Open Present from Eureka Stamps for my project. 

finally the stamps you've been looking for rubber stamp company Rubber Stamps, Gold Leaf, Foil, and Glass Beads for Stampin, Scrapbooks, Card Making, and Paper Crafts
Here is the inside of my gift holder. 

I used the Top Note Bigz Die by Stampin Up to make the gift card holder and then added it to a card front using several different coordinating papers. The image was coloured with Copic Markers and a glitter pen, ribbon and button were added to complete the project.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
