Explosion card thingy

 A friend of mine made one of these and added watercolor paper for a very unique art journal. I decided to make one as an add on to a book I am making.  I love it! I used old paper for the background and digital images from various sources. Very pleased with the finished product. I will use a small clip to add it to a page of a home made book. 

Happy Crafting!

Faux postage


Using real used stamps and small pieces of ephemera I created lots of faux postage. I will use to tuck into journals and cards and books. I feel like I am channeling Nick Bantock.

another junk journal- already sold


Unicorns is the theme of my latest junk journal. A woman bought this for her granddaughter. How sweet. She told me her granddaughter loves unicorns so I added lots of them. The faux stamp is my favorite. I learned how to make them over at Roxy Creations on you tube. check it out for some stamping and ephemera fun! 

Happy creating!

new junk journal - already sold.

 This is a commission piece. The person is going to use it to write about her trip to Scotland. What a lovely idea.  She gave me some places to highlight- the image with the owl- that is a paper listing what a student needs to enter Hogwarts.  Harry Potter was written in Edinburgh Scotland.  I had a lot of fun making this one.

Foiling on Cricut Maker

 This is a game changer- foiling on my cricut maker. Woo hoo!  This is my first foiling. This will go into a junk journal for a 9 year old girl who loves unicorns. It is pink and shiny- just what a 9 year old girl loves!

Cricut has just released the foiling tip- can't wait to experiment!

Halloween Haunted House


As soon as the air cools, I turn to Fall. And Fall means Halloween. I adore making Halloween houses and cards. This is a house I made using the Tim Holtz house die series. I made individual house siding pieces a bluish gray to resemble an old neglected house. The shingles are enameled with black and gold and cut into separate shingles. The pumpkin is polymer clay. The doors are embossed, painted with black beads for the door handles.  I entire house is cardboard and paper, including the fencing and the base.   Overall it is quite small.  The base on which the house stands measures 4.5" x 4.5" (11.4 cm x 11.4 cm). The house stands at 6" (15 cm) on the base.  It was great fun to make!

Happy Crafting!
