I'm Back

Thank you for stopping in to visit my new blog now that I'm on my own.

Does it seem possible that Christmas cards will soon go out in less than a month's time? The stamping group that I belong to, Olympia Paper Dolls, is continuing its tradition of making handmade Christmas cards for residents in a local nursing home. Each of us will make 20 cards. Here's my start . . .

Spellbinders Holiday Die:

Candy Cane Card Front S4-556

Magenta Stamp:

"There is magic all around us . . . " 07807.J


Memento Dye Ink in Rhubarb Stalk

Creative Impressions:

1/4" silk ribbons

Card Stocks:

Kraft; Red Velvet & Gold Glitter from SEI; Paper Parachute Designer paper; base card ivory card stock 5" wide x 6.5" tall

Most of these supplies can be purchased and/or ordered at Art 'n Soul in Lacey, Washington.

I want to share with you a journal cover by Josee Gingras, who is a member of the Magenta Design Team. She has used stencils and Nuance for the beautiful background design. That cover will always provide creative inspiration to the owner.

If you're attending the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center in downtown Tacoma tomorrow or Saturday, please stop in at the Local King Rubber Stamp booth. I'll be there both days helping Lisa Yang.

I have a little more work to do on this blog site, so please bear with me. Any comments you might have are always welcome!
