Hello and Welcome to my blog.
I'm a Mom, Daughter, Sister and friend and a Cat Keeper and an avid card maker and paper artist. I love the outside, gardening, visiting my friends and family and enjoy many other activities. My blog is about cards and so much more. I hope you enjoy visiting with me here.
Everyone needs a Birthday card now and again including me so I thought I better get busy, I did this one in the heat of that day and escaped down into my much cooler craft room. Hope everyone is doing well. I have entered this card in Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge
I dressed up this Journal or notebook with this little Girl in the Garden. She is layered a few times to give her extra dimension. Around the papers it was sewn and I placed a paper doily under her and added some lace and baby blue half pearls. Thank you for stopping by, Jane
I tried my hand at this Princess Layout - this took days, actually probably on my table for a few weeks. Hope you are enjoying your summer, I have slowed down my crafting some to enjoy it with family and friends. Take care, Jane
Are you a camping family, been out camping yet? I have and am going to go again. We also like to hike and Geocache while out in the wilderness, OK, that would be a State Park! It's a fun thing to do and you get your exercise in as a bonus. This album has some really great stuff in it, and Sittin' around that CAMPFIRE and telling stories and eating S'mores, well, that is enjoying the simple things. Hope all is well my friends. Jane
I think that this is my first Paper Bag album I have posted for you on my blog. It has 12 pages so this is just a peek into the creation. It is made out of Prima's new line of paper products, this line is called Madeline. I love that name, don't you?
I have it for sale in my esty shop as well if you want to view more of the photos. Tp access my esty. see the box off to the left. Thanks Folks and HAPPY MAY DAY! Jane
My twin nieces are both expecting boy babies very shortly and I decided to make them some cards up. I did decide to offer them on ebay first to anyone wanting to greet an arrival of an infant boy and I can always make more cards if a person buys either one. I was really worried HOW the brown and lavender one would look like but I think that is my favorite of the two of them. Sometimes you just don't know till it is all put together!
Here I am on ebay if you want to see even more of the photos then what I am showcasing here.
There you have them, LOL. Took me a few minutes of thinking time to figure out how I wanted to add all the ribbon on the top of the card but I think the effort was worth it. Hope you are all well my blogging friends, Jane
This is one of my newest cards, I am behind in posting them here. I have this on auction on ebay and it has hit 'the pulse' my first time on there EVER but I hope that it will not be my last. I love the colors and sewing on this Easel card.
Thank you all for stopping by, have a fabulous week!! Jane
Nope, my Kitties don't look like this, I have a feeling even if they were white they would be full little gray dust Bunnies! I have not posted a Kitty Cat card in quite a while, what has taken me so long? They are one of my favorite subjects and many of my siblings are cat lovers, we have seven between us and with the exception of one sibling that doesn't have any, we all think she was adopted. She's so funny when she comes over that she makes sure she hangs her coat up and puts her shoes in the closet. You all KNOW what those pesky kitties do to a new visitors coat if it is left out, yep, a new bed.
It's Spring ahead today! Why am I still up? The winter went so slow so why I am shocked that it is already Mid March? Ummmm... Still have mounds of snow in Minnesota but hoping the next few weeks will take care of that and looking forward to getting outside and doing some walking instead of on my threadmill. Take care my blogging friends, Jane
I think I am caught up posting my cards. There are three Easter and 2 Sarah Kay Cards - hope you all had a great day, I spend mine visiting with my mom.
I have entered the Easel cards, all of them! In this challenge here that my friend Vicki at Stampin' Smiles does. She always makes it to my blog and says the NICEST things, Thank you!! Joining Inky Impressions this week with my Easel cards, Vicki did a Twisted one, I enjoyed that as well. Thank you all for your visit at thepaperaffair, Jane
Hello all you out in blog land, I wanted to share this with you all this evening or maybe it's morning to you?
I have entered this in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week although this measures 6 x6 but notice the pretty trim across the bottom and side of card with other little "Pretties". My Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge card, my favorite places to play! Hope all is well my online friends, Jane
Again It's been awhile since my last blog entry, I try to post something once a week. I have been making items and trying my hand on ebay once again. I was as seller on ebay before the economy went bad but I am back again sharing my love of paper crafts. You can see me on ebay under the id name of thepaperaffair.
Thank you all ffor stopping by, really Spring is coming and Easter will be here!! Even this card shows me hope for brighter, non-snowy days!
Well - Valentine's day is only a day away right? I love doing EASTER CARDS! Here is my first one for this Easter, This little fellow is cute. I have another one almost done so I can post that shortly as well.
Thank you for stopping by and viewing my first Easter card. If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them for you, just leave a comment with it in there. Have I told you that I am in an ebay sellers group? Yes, I am. It is a group of ladies that sell high quality paper crafts on ebay; Scrapbook Page Layouts, Albums, Cards, Altered items, Tags, Journals, Wall Hangings and anything with paper. We have just started our own Facebook Page called MOMz, hop on over and take a look and become a follower. Hope you are all well and .. are you itching for Spring also? Blessings, Jane
I have fun playing with this pattern, the heart pocket over of Crafter's Digital Art Center and wanted to share it with you, if you like to attend the class, all you need to do it to sign up. I am going to enter this card over at Priscilla's Midnight Madness, not only does she run this challenge but she also is the Mistress at CDAC. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge entry. Thanks for your visit.
I love this young maiden in the garden, isn't she so precious! I am pleased with it all, I think it came together very nicely. Thank you all for stopping by.
I entered this in Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for this week. Thanks for the great sketch this week!
I want to show you something I put together for Valentine's day, a mini-album for Valentines. Isn't it fun with all those beautiful reds and pinks and whites and next to giving all our Sweethearts a Valentine, what can be better other than Chocolates? I am just getting started on Valentines and shopping for paper confections is a favorite of mine, at least that has no calories. Keep tuned, I have already got my next creation in my head and on the craft table!!
Hope all is well with my Blogging friends and if I haven't wished you a Fabulous 2011, I wish you all one now. Many blessings in the coming year to you and yours, Jane
