Scrapbook in a Purse

I got this pattern from a bulletin board and just love how easy it is to make one of these! I've made two like the pink one and given them away as gifts, and then I made the "western" one and gave it to my friend Penny who has always been a cowgirl. I need to make one for me and actually put photos and journaling in it! (Sorry the bottom photo is blurry - I was in a hurry and only took one shot.)

Perfect Day Cards

This is a 10-card workshop I made up for a class this past weekend. I really love this paper and these colors.

Christmas Cards

I needed a project for my open house last fall. I had never used this gorgeous this stamp set and thought it would go beautifully with this new paper, so I designed these fast and simple cards.

Holiday Thanks

I've always liked this paper but never took the right photos to use it for scrapbooking, so I decided to make holiday thank you cards with it. I was pleased with the results.

Convention Artwork

This card made it onto the artwork board at Close to My Heart's recent Convention in Orlando, FL! Go me!


This is one of my favorite papers ever - and one of my favorite stamp sets. I thought they made a very elegant Valentine.

Teacher Cards

The "thanks" card was for my son's summer school teacher, and the other one I made several of for all the teachers at the end of preschool in May. (I got the idea for this one from a magazine.)

Photo Tablets

I got the idea for these tablets from a magazine. I especially love the one of me and my sister. I was about 5. My cousin just happened to find this photo in her stash last year and it was fun to use it. I gave identical ones to my mom and my sister for Christmas. Guess I should make myself one, too!

Hello Kitty Cards

My mom loves Hello Kitty, so I made her these cards for Mother's Day.

For My Girlfriends

I thought it would be fun to use some discontinued paper and make my friends some layouts for Christmas, especially because they have 4 girls between them (and one boy), and I just have a boy. I had so much fun making these!

Birthday Cards

I needed some birthday cards a few months back, so I made a few like this to use up some discontinued paper. I was really pleased with the results, and they were so simple!

Cinco de Mayo Favors

I taught a workshop on Cinco de Mayo last year, so I thought it would be fun to have party-like favors. I love using discontinued papers to create gift bags.


A fellow consultant gave our group a cute clipboard for Christmas a couple years ago, so I made some for my family last year.

M&M Jar

I made this for my husband for his birthday last year.

This is the day I decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon. I think it's going to be fun.
