When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

For Chloe

This is a scrapbook page I made yesterday for my sister's niece Chloe. She just celebrated her birthday the other day and thought of making a LO for her. Again I used my Cricut expression machine and carts (Forever Young and Gypsy Font)...

Until next time....

My Recent Scrapbook LO's

Couple days ago, I've been looking at the scrapbook pages I did in the past and yikes, I find the style too old and completely out of my taste. I wish I could redo them all again but DH disagreed with me. He said that it should remain the way it was so in the future when I look at them again, it would show how the evolution of scrapbooking starts in my life. He said it will show me and remind me how I was as a newbie. He says that in a couple years more, these new batches that I made will be considered out of style again. I guess he's right so I rest my case...

For the last two years I've been so hooked doing cardmaking and stamping because I get the instant gratification. I don't know about you, but normally, it would take me one whole night to finish up a scrapbook page. With cardmaking, I could come up as many as 8cards in one night, depending on the technique used. When I scrap, I just simply won't stop until I'm satisfied and that could mean days... I wonder if there are crafter's like me. Well, let's blame it on the OCDness.

The Cricut family in my craft room is really getting bigger. I have to give myself justification why I keep on buying the cartridges. In my last posting, I made a bunch of cards that solely made out of die-cuts and I used nothing but Cricut and cartridges. The last two nights, I was working on these three scrapbook pages using my Cricut machine and a bunch of cartridges (Forever Young, Storybook, Stone Script, Cindy Loo & Nursery Rhymes). I am so pleased with my work and I wonder if I could say the same thing in couple years...

Thanks for viewing them...

Tim Holtz Newly Released Embossing Folders

Here are my latest card creations using Tim Holtz embossing folders, Tim Holtz distressed inks and Tim Holtz ink blending tool. Then I added some ribbons, bottons, and twines as embellishments. The goal is to showcase Tim Holtz embossing folders designs without too many elements.
