Time for another Color My Heart Color Dare! This time it is a Splash of Color Dare. The challenge is to "... use any product as long as it is brown, plus ONLY ONE splash of color of your choice. Black and white are free." Since I have some very dear friends who are celebrating their wedding anniversary I decided to make them a clean and simple card within the parameters of this challenge.

To start I cut a piece of brown Kraft Paper to 4.25" x 11" and folded it in half to create a top fold card. Then it was a matter of stamping and embossing. I used one retired CTMH stamp set (Rise Strong - D1870) and the Every Little Thing (C1801) stamp set. I love the flowers on the retired set, but I also really love the font of the Eve…

This time of year I am busy enjoying Christmas themed paper crafting... but I don't want to put those pictures up on my blog until the recipient of the artwork sees what I've made them! So instead, for today's blog, I thought you might like to see the process I used to make a scrapbook layout for my little granddaughter's birthday party pictures this weekend.

If you are a beginner with Cricut or Cricut Access you might really enjoy this video I made showing how to make a basic scrapbook page.

Today's blog is all about creating a scrapbook page via Cricut Access in Cricut Design Space using a Cricut Explore Air to be entered in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge. Here is a quick video I made showing the process...

As the video shows, I pretty much followed the design for this scrapbook page as it was originally designed in Cricut Access. I changed it a bit by cutting out extra "Happy Day" words in White Daisy cardstock so I could glue them together to create more depth to this element.


I also watercolored my own background page (so I could color coordinate the …

Today's video and blog are all about "Inspiration". As many of you know, a couple of weeks ago my computer died... it didn't just break... it completely and permanently died. The silver lining to that cloud is it caused me to contemplate where we get our inspiration to create our art. It seems like ideas I see on Facebook or Pinterest have been my inspiration an awfully lot lately. Having a broken computer caused me to sit down and write out a list of 10 places that I find inspiration for my art other than the computer.

For this video I am showing you one of the places I find inspires me to create... the town I live in... Staunton, VA. Take a moment to watch the video below. After the video you will see that I listed suppli…

Today I am entering a card in the Color Dare Challenge. Here is the link if you would like to learn more about the challenge:

Color Dare #359
The colors I chose for this dare are Linen, Peach, a spattering of Goldrush, and a touch of Sage. I chose these colors because I love how they combine (and I had some paper scraps to use from the CTMH Sweet Girl collection that also included some of those colors). Here are a few picture and a description of the process I used to create this card.

First I pulled a few supplies together: Peach Exclusive InkGoldrush Exclusive InkLinen Cardstock, and the Every Little Thing Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts.
I started by ink blending on a scrap piece of White Daisy Cardstock with the Peach ink.
Then, using my wa…
