Crops – A fun way to spend a day

Posted: Wednesday, October 31st, 2018 @ 8:49 am in Projects | No Comments »

I attend many of the crops in our area (Erie, PA).  These events, often usually held at churches or halls, are a fun way to network, get some scrapbooking or other projects done, and get away from the cooking etc. at home. This month, I am still working on some pages from the 1980’s – […]

Peak color is this week in my neck of the woods (Erie, PA) so it’s time to share some leafy projects. Tip:  The Soft Suede panel is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This card is so simple – cut, stamp, glue. This second card was made from scraps – otherwise I would have matted the vanilla […]
