Galaxy’s Edge

Challenged to make a layout that looks like an advertising poster to come visit A park, I came up with this! I really do love How Disney can make you feel transported to another planet! Designed using Artisan 6 software

Life CAPTURED !!

Standard

After a brief break from crafting (a much needed vacation came first!) I was excited to get back to scrapbooking this week. This digital page is a nod to the current viral trend using the Voila app to animate yourself as well as your friends and family. I definitely had fun making cartoon versions of us!

Anchor Down!

Standard

I adore this class photo of my youngest but never knew the best way to scrap it. Yesterday I played with some paper tearing techniques using artisan 6 software and this was what I came up with. I am very pleased with how the page turned out. #digiscrapping #digitalscrapbook #digitalscrapbooking #digitalscrapbooklayout #memorykeeping #modernmemorykeeping #digiscrap #papercrafter #scrapbooking #digitalscrapbook

My African Safari

Standard

This is my first coffee table book featuring photos taken during my African safari. As a digital scrapbook artist, this book was created using Forever Artisan 6 software and then printed as a seamless lay flat 12”x24” album. Photographing the amazing wildlife in their natural habitat was a dream come true.

Happy Bird-day

Standard

I broke my foot last week and haven’t been up to creating much but have been reflecting on some of my favorite projects and making plans for what I want to work on next once I’ve completely healed.

For now I thought I’d share one of my favorite cards. I used Gemini stamps and die cuts for the bird and sentiment, as well as vellum, paper, and cardstock from Close To My Heart. I used black embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment, black enamel dots for the corners of the vellum and the bird’s eye, and some foam squares to pop up my bird.

As always, thanks for following me on my creative journey!

I love elephants! Since I can’t get back to Africa anytime soon I’ll settle for seeing them in Tampa!. Photo taken with a Canon Rebel T8i

Pop-up Birthday Wishes

Standard

I was challenged tonight to create a card inspired by something “sweet” so I created this pop-up tent fold birthday card.

I used assorted cardstock (Stampin Up and American Craft) and patterned paper (Echo Park and Scrap Your Trip).

If you’d like to re-create this card, here’s how:

It’s an 8″x8″ base that is scored at 4″ down the middles and then again on the angles. Then cut 3 pieces of patterned paper at 3.75″ x 3.75″ – one you keep square and the other two you cut on the angle to create the 4 triangles. Finally cut a 3.5″x3.5″ piece of plain cardstock on an angle for your message! I used a small piece of velcro to secure the bottom square of the card but it isn’t necessary.

Happy crafting!
