ABOUT ME

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.

Back To School & Off To College



WOW, I can believe the summer's coming to an end already. Seems school was just letting out for the summer, now it's time for back-to-school shopping already. It's also a great time for making cards to send with your students as they prepare to go back to the class room or prepare for campus life, at college. I made this Off-to-College card for my godchild, who's headed away to college, for her freshman year; where did the time go. For this card, I used the Off To College digital stamp set from The Cutting Cafe. I was having so much fun, that I decided to make a matching envelope. The fabulous flowers were cut from the Paper Lace Cricut cartridge and of course, my Martha Stewart border punches were near by for the scallops.
Enjoy and TFSB
