Houston, Tx, United States
Hi. Welcome to my site; my name is Karen. I'm an avid scrap-booker, card-maker, and paper-crafter. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years and I am just as excited now as when I first started. Scrapbooking is the instrument I use to record some of the greatest and most special moments of my family’s life. I love buying patterned paper, ribbon and embellishments, taking pictures of my son, teaching scrapbooking and hosting workshops. This hobby continues to be an obsession for me and it continues to challenge me to be a better scrapper. I love the escape that scrapbooking affords me and the fun it has brought into my world. I have one child, a son; he's 15 years old and he is my favorite scrapbook subject. I hope that you enjoyed my site and will visit again soon.

Chic Mother's Day

Brown and green are the lastest rave, so I thought I'd incorporate those colors into a card. Well, what do you think? I think I like it.

Mother's Day Tag card

A card or a tag; which do you think it is? If you guessed a card, you're correct. I thought I'd create a card that looks like a tag, and it opens up so that I can include a sentiment.

Keeping It Simple

I love the look of simple lines, especially in my scrapbooking and cardmaking. I also love the color pink, so I combined the two and I think they make a nice pair, don't you?

Another Mother's Day Pink and Green

I liked this pattern paper so much, I had to make two cards, different style of course.

Mother's Day is Coming

I wanted to get an early start on my Mother's Day cards so I spent the day playing with some of my new papers and old embellishments. This card showcases two of my favorite colors; pink and greens.

Masculne Birthday

I am always challenged when I have to make a mature masculine birthday card. They're hard for me because I love adding flowers and ribbon to my cards. For this card, I thought of a color scheme, where I could add both of my favorite embellishments and still keep the masculine look to this card.

Happy Birthday

Summer is on it's way and I wanted to get a headstart on my summer birthday cards. I also used this card for a class I taught. I feel in love with the pattern paper the minute I was it in the store. I immediately starting thinking about ribbon and flowers I could use to embellish these papers. I like the final outcome.

Pearl Elegance

Sympathy cards are always the hardest cards for me. A friend of mine had a death in her family and I wanted to create a beautiful, elegant, very simple card to share my condolences.

Blact Tie Affair

I love black and white paper, as I guess you can tell by some of the other cards on my site. Well, I found this wonderful new black and white paper from Heidi Swapp at my local scrapbook store, and I had to buy a few sheets. I wanted to create a "springy" classy card and I think this turned out perfect. Of course I had to add my favorite embellishment: flowers.
