Hello and welcome to an exciting announcement!

I started as a scrapbooker twelve years ago and have been using the Project Life system of scrapbooking since last summer and I'm telling you, it has revolutionized my ability to keep pretty current and have fun along the way.  Now, not only do I get to continue that journey with Project Life, I get to enjoy it even more as part of the Stampin' Up! product line. 

Here's the announcement:

It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

Easy Watercolor Technique

Hello and happy weekend my fellow crafty peeps!

I have an easy beautiful watercolor technique created by my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Eva Bussom (  Instead of using water to watercolor, you put the ink directly from your ink pad to your clear block, then spritz it with rubbing alcohol right before you put it to paper.   You get a different pattern each time.

Easy and pretty quick to dry, with beautiful results.  Thanks Eva!

I created these cards as swaps for my team meeting this weekend. 

Eva also did a video to teach this technique.  Check it out:

Happy Crafting!
