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.

I needed to make a quick birthday card, so I duplicate something that I'd done already; made a few alterations and voila!

Back to basics, blue and brown. I like to have encouragement and thank you cards on hand, so here's to adding to my stash.

Embossing Circle

Isn't this G.C.D. paper wonderful? I certainly think it is; I've been looking at it for a while, trying to decide what to do with it. Well, here's what I did. What do you think?

Scoring - Birthday

After talking with my girlfriend several months ago, she made me realize "I needed a scoring pad", so I printed an online coupon, we jumped in the car, drove 50 miles to Archiver's to purchase a Scor-Pal and used it twice. Then about 2 months ago she tells me how "we need the new Martha Stewart Scoring Board, so again, I printed an online coupon, jumped in the car, drove to the nearest Michael's to purchase the Scoring Board and have finally used it. I must say, that I absolutely love this tool.

Summer Layouts

Well I have finally scrapped some pictures from last summer's vacation in Cancun. I printed the pictures months ago and put them to the side, but I needed to get some layouts done. I used one of the Bo-Bunny summer lines and lots of bright flowers.
