I made a book! Petal Passion Designer Series Paper

Bookmaking has been on my list of  “things to learn” for several years now.

Yesterday, I was able to complete that goal thanks to a class sponsored by Little River Arts Council (LRAC). The class was taught by my friend and amazing local artist, Lydia Randolph.

Lydia offered us a huge array of papers, ribbons, vintage wall paper and other goodies, but my heart was set on our new Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon.

The paper features flowers in black and white. I watercolored them with my ink pads and an aqua

painter. The little bit of sparkle comes from clear Wink of Stella.

Many thanks to Lydia and LRAC!  Here is how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

Lift me up!


Yesterday was a dreary, rainy day here on Little River. A perfect day for cutting, stamping and gluing . I needed to add to my stash of cards, so here is what I did:


Lift me up, Carried Away

One of the great things about Stampin Up products and our support system are the free You Tube videos

showing us in detail how to create beautiful, color coordinated cards. In the course of a few hours, I was able to make sixteen cards!

Let me know if I can help you make a stash of your own. I would love to earn your business!

Here is the video, and thanks for looking in today.
