A place to show all my "ink works" and it's my paradise I'm sharing with you.

Different stationary set
This one is going to be a gift for the daughter who is in the hospital for when she comes home. I am hoping that will be soon. I hate being so far away from her when she is ill. Anyhow it makes me feel better when I can make something for her instead of just glooming along. This is pure crafting but I actually enjoyed it! You want directions for any of the crafting you see on my blog, chances are I got the instructions via Youtube.com from either StampTV or Splitcoaststampers. They will refer you to their blogs if there is a pattern involved, but they will show you how to put things together, what tools you will need and which supplies work best for them. If you want to know about inks, I learned it all from Jennifer McGuire as she did videos for Twopeasinabucket.com last summer. I do a lot of online buying as I adore getting packages (just ask my mailman!)! We have a Michael's, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby and a scrapbook store all within a mile of each other - actually JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby are in the same shopping center! I thought I had died and gone to heaven when we moved here! And going about the same distance in the opposite direction, I have about the same situation! So getting back to my gift - I had a great time making this, used my I-rock a lot. I will be posting a card as soon as I take photos - another birthday! Hope my daughter likes this set when I give it to her. Think I messed up on the box some and will probably make her another something to go with the set. I will give all 3 pieces to her. I just have to empty something so I can cover it to match!! Hugs, Barb F
I have just spent a lot of time trying to move these things around. Not sure yet how it actually works but tired of trying. Sorry there seems to be an overlap - sometimes its different when I actually publish it. Off to photo the next card!
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
