Here's another card sketch from PCP


Hi Everyone,
I'm on a tag craze these days. It may be because of my Monthly Tag Swap, but I have made a few tags this last week. I have a few pictures below, and I have two videos on You Tube. If you haven't checked out my YT Channel, just go to Don't forget to add the 99 at the end. :> Because that is the age I will stop scrapbooking. Just kidding. I would be so lucky to live that long. Also, if you like any of my videos, you can also post them on your own blog for your followers. Just use the embed feature on YT.

I also wanted to share a few tips for beginner scrapbookers because this is what I did when I got stuck. You can use this list for cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, etc. When I was new I would go through a list of things in my mind to add to a card when I got stuck and didn't know what else to do. If you go through the list, it may help you and spark your mojo. So, here goes.

Add things like:

Rubber Stamps
Distress Ink
Flower Pins
Sewing Stiches
Acrylic Paint
Glimmer Mist
Diamond Dust
Perfect Pearls/Pearl Ex
Glossy Accents
charms or jewelry
embossing/dry embossing
metal pieces
Vintage Photo
Chipboard Embellishment
Die Cut/Cricut Die

Hope that helps you. Print it out and keep it at your craft area and add to the list!  Here are my tag pics as promised.  Thank you!!

Hi Everyone,

I HAVE to share this great site I just found for line art images. It's so amazing what you can find if you Google. I bet you will never have to buy another stamp if you use this site. But, we will anyways right? Well, when I got Copic Certified, I was on a hunt to practice coloring. I found that I wanted MORE images to color because the stamps I owned were not necessarily all coloring type of stamps. What I do is right click on the image and "save as" to save it to my puter. So, here is the site. ENJOY!

It's time for sign ups for August. The theme for August is PRETTY WOMAN.  You can use anybody you want. You can use Marilyn Monroe, Your Grandmother, Your Grand-daughter, whoever. They must be female.  You can use Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Boop, Oprah Winfrey, Charlie's get the idea.  No QUOTE is necessary unless you want.
                     PLEASE EMAIL ME at to join.
                     Do not leave a comment to sign up, I will need your email addy.

The OPTIONAL CHALLENGE is to use acrylic paint on your tag somehow, somewhere.....I am putting a twist in the August swap, so let me know how you like it. It will make you stretch your creativity. Same rules will apply as always. Please remember to do the back of your tags and to send return postage stamps too.  

Swap Tags must be mailed not later than August 15, 2010.  I will send the tags back to you on August 20 or sooner. Rules are below. This is a long post, so read all the way thru to the swapper's signed up below....


1.   Once you sign up, you are committed. Please make every attempt to finish on time and mail tags on time. If you do not follow through, you won't be able to participate again.  I will excuse for unusual circumstances though.  Why so strict?  I have heard horror stories of people never getting their swap items. So, I do not wish to disappoint anyone.

2.   For the One on One swap, you mail 2 decorated tags. You can make an extra for yourself but do not send it to me. I will add embellishments and mail 1 back to you. You must include return envelope and return postage stamps.

3.   You mail 5 tags to me and I will coordinate tags and ship the exchanged 4 tags back to you.  Please include a second envelope and enough return postage stamps in your envelopes so I can mail it BACK to you. Also, write your addy on the return envelope please.

4.    Mail to me by August 15(I will mail out on the 20th of each month or sooner).

5.    Please try to follow theme of swaps, but don't run out and spend money to do them-get creative! You need not use the newest papers or embellies- just have fun!

Is that love or what?

Hi Everyone.  Here's a picture I took of my Pug, Brody and my cat, Jazz.  While I am scrapping away into the wee hours of the night/morning....this is what they do.  Brody is the one snoring in my videos. Sometimes he snores louder than my husband! It's funny.  I did not know that Pugs snore when I got him. But, I love him so much that I overlook his one flaw. LOL. These two are buddies.  My cat will chase my dog....and vice versa. But, my cat, Jazz is really the boss of the house. My hubby calls Brody my Mini-Me, because he will follow me everywhere! I mean EVERYWHERE! When I scrap until 3 am, he is right there with me.  Talk about love right?  I would love to hear your stories about your fur babies. Please comment below! :> Also, have a great Fourth of July!
