Okay, here's my problem...

Here's my problem, which is why I haven't started a card blog until now...I stink at photography.  I got a great new camera for Christmas, and I'm excited to see if I can do better (or the camera can help me) with taking pictures of my cards.  I'm always so disappointed when I see my cards on my monitor, because I think they look so much better in real life.  I'm working on some editing with Picassa, so hopefully that helps, and I've learned a few tricks from friends on the PTI forum (thank you!).

In the meantime, you should just come over and see them in person.  I will feed you cookies.


  1. If you are taking a close up picture, you should always use the Macro function, that makes the picture very clear.

  2. I love Picasa!!! I take all my pictures on my floor in front of my sliding glass door. The natural light makes the colors on your look 'true to life'. I don't have to adjust my card much, just cropping it. Hope that helps.

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
