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.

Go Eagles

I whipped out the Locker Talk cartridge from Cricut, to cut the megaphones and layer them, and of course used one of my Martha Stewart border punches to trim multiple borders, to create a layout to help cheer on those little league Eagles. I keep my punches close by whenever I'm scrapping because they're what I reach for every time. Flowers, of course!!!
Enjoy and TFSB,

More Graduation

Enjoying the graduation pictures so much and it's that time of year again, so thought I'd design another "grad" layout. I had to work some pink (my absolute favorite color) in the layout.

Just Me

What a darling little girl. One great picture and an opportunity to create a layout with all my favorites, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge, ribbon, flowers, bling, chipboard letters, paint and the paper backing from a pack of Prima flowers that I inked.

My Brother and Me

Having a great time with my Martha Stewart border punches, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Maya Road mini envelopes and Spellbinders' dies. I wanted to create a layout that was feminine, but not to girly because there's a young man in the layout. Ummm, I think I got the right look.

Once Upon A Time

High school prom; what an awesome time. I created these two (2) layouts to commemorate a special time for a very special young lady. These layouts gave me a chance to pull out and use the Cricut Storybook cartridge, that I had to have months ago and didn't remember purchasing. I also used a Martha Stewart deep border punch for the hearts border. I guess this is part of using my stash.
Enjoy and TFSB,
