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.

You Color My World

I've been wanting to make a wall hanging with positive affirmations to hang on my wall and I've also been collecting chipboard books from Maya Road. Well, I bought another one while at CKC-Houston a couple of weeks ago and decided the wait had been long enough. I started with my glimmer mist paints and painted the chipboard, then I covered it with beautiful black and white pattern papers, each in a different design. I used the You Color My World Sentiments set from The Cutting Cafe for the affirmations, then cut sentiment shapes from the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridges for each sentiment. This was such a fun project; all the ribbons and bling. It's going to be perfect on my wall.
Enjoy and TFSB
