Smile Gothic Arch

Hello My Friends!

This is a Gothic arch I made a few weeks ago and I wanted to share. Many years ago, I ran a blog that was dedicated to making these arches and we had challenges each week with a new theme. They are great fun to create, collect, exchange, and even make books from.

I usually trace my template on to pattern paper first, as it is thinner, Adding various pattern papers, ephemera, image, flowers and bits and bobs (optional), stamping, text etc. At the very end if I am mounting it on to card stock I do that now. Cutting an edge to peek out.

May Skinny Cards

Hello My Friends! Sharing a few skinny cards (3 x 5 size) with you today. This is a wonderful way to use up scraps of paper and collage images. They are also very versatile as you can mount them onto a larger card, in journals (tuck spots and pockets) or the cover of a traveler’s notebook.

The bases are 3 x 5 Kraft Cardstock. To that I added layers of pattern paper allowing a small border for the cardstock to peek out. Ephemera was also added to each piece, collage images (Paper Whimsy), and bits of craft paint.

Seabird Song Journal Spread

Hello My Friends!

I hope this finds you well in our continued different world. Today, I am sharing a journal spread that I started some time ago, but finished up this past week.

The book is a Moleskine and there are many other journal pages. The spread features lyrics from Gordon Lightfoot “Seabird Song” and many other medias. A variety of craft paints, gesso, pattern papers, ephemera, Paper Whimsy images, and computer lyrics that were printed.

My favorite little guy is now 9 months! I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed and I am still pinching myself at finally becoming a Grandma!
