Heart to Heart challenge #9

I really enjoyed making my own striped paper for my interpretation of this week's challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else makes, too!

Here are a few more examples of stamped backgrounds

Not sure why this last one loaded sideways...strange things, computers LOL

Heart to Heart challenge #8: Stamp your own Background

Boy was this a tough one...tough to decide what to submit, because I love to stamp my own backgrounds. My husband wisely voted for the pirate paper used in our wedding album. If you click on "tips and techniques" in the left margin of my blog, you will see how I made this multi-step background used throughout our album.

Heart to Heart challenge #7

This week's challenge used a color combination of Desert Sand, Ocean and Topiary. I happened to be working on our Disneyland Honeymoon album, and this picture worked perfectly for this color scheme. Hope you like it, too!

Heart to Heart challenge #5


For this week's technique challenge, I choose sanding...I'm addicted! On this card, I dry embossed a pattern for the background then sanded over the top. I also sanded the back of some B&T paper to add more dimension. Scroll down to see one of my wedding album pages where I used three different versions of there any help for this addiction? LOL

Can't stop sanding... three different kinds on this page LOL

Heart to Heart Mother's Day challenge

This was fun to make using Veranda papers and Spring Blossom paper flowers. Not sure if the judges will love it, but I know Nana will :)
