Paper Morsels

Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.

Lawn Fawn Wonderful Window

When I saw this sweet die, Lawn Fawn’s new Wonderful Window, I just had to buy it!  This is my first card with this die and there are so many possibilities that I will be using it again and again!  The tulip base slides into the little flower box.  If you want to make the windows open, you can!  There are also little cut outs for each window pane with tulip cut outs, if you want to totally different look.

8 x 8 Pad Disappearance Challenge

Inspired by Kristie at her blog The Best Things in Life are Pink, I tried to make a paper pad “disappear” by using it all up by making cards.  The paper pad I chose, however, was not the typical 6 x 6, but rather, a slightly larger 8 x 8 pad.

The pad I used was Graphic 45’s “By the Sea” pad.  Graphic 45’s 12 x 12 papers are very challenging to use for cards due to the size of their images, but they did a good job of providing larger and much smaller prints in this pack.


Many thanks to Kristie for showing which sketches she used.  I followed her examples for many of the cards!   There were a few more cards than this, but I have been using one here or there for occasions.  The rest will go to Operation Write Home.  OWH is closing down and they stop taking cards on Aug 1, so these will go in my last box to them.

I’m featuring a Missing You card to enter into the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge on the Operation Write Home blog today.

Simon Says Stamp “Create” Event!

I spent two days this weekend and an amazing crafting event put on by a Columbus  based online-only crafting store called Simon Says Stamp.  The workshops were all taught be some of the VIPs of the paper crafting world! 

We made cards and learned neat techniques with Sharri Carroll (Simon Says Stamp), Jennifer McQuire (Hero Arts, etc.), Sandy Allnock (Operation Write Home), Kelly Marie Alverez (Lawn Fawn) and  Stephanie Klauck (Simon Says Stamp).  We made some cool 3D Distressed Art projects with Tim Holz.  I got to see some talented artists demo some techniques – a couple of them that I follow on blogs regularly!  Oh…and I got tons of free stamps and supplies!  It was a great time!
