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.

Challenge #12

Challenge #12 was to use the notebook from the Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge. We could make either a card or a journaling notebook; I chose to do a notebook because I buy lots of them. Well, I won't be buying them anymore, I'll just power up my Cricut, and get busy. I don't usually use purple, but I had these beautiful Bazzill Brisbane flowers and I wanted to use them. So, I started with the flowers and worked backwards. Hope you like it.

Sympathy Card

There are always those cards that I don't like to make, well sympathy cards are one of them. I always struggle with what to say on the inside of the card and I spend lots of time putting the colors together to make sure that the cards are uplifting and encouraging. I hope this one was.

Birthday Goes Round

I was going to be on vacation for my mother's birthday, but I couldn't leave without making her card. I wanted to practice with making a round card and figured this was a good ocassion. I like the way it turned out, though in the picture, the flower colors look a little darker than the card. They were actually a perfect match. I told my mom not to open it until her birthday, but I have a feeling she peeked.

Summertime Pinks - More

I liked this paper so much, I decided to use it a couple of more times. I changed the design, just a little each time. Is this Summertime Pink paper CUTE?
