My Blog Tour

Since this blog is new and still under some construction I wanted to give you all my personal tour. First we have my beautiful header and background I got from "The Cutest Blog on the Block." They have some amazing backgrounds but this one tells some of my story.  Beautiful brown butterflies flying upwards to higher heights. Love that image!

Next, I have pages I have added here on the sidebar to the right. "My Cards" has a link to my Two Peas in a Bucket account where you can see my work. Two Peas is one of my favorite sites and I love posting my cards there.  I hope you enjoy seeing my card "babies."

Another page is "Who Inspires Me?" I love that I could give some recognition to those who have inspired me in my creative journey.  Guess who my number one cheerleader is? Well, you will have to click over there to see. :)

My last page for now is "Inspiring Music." I was raised in a musical family and surrounded by all sorts of music.  So a few days ago I saw another crafter had her playlist on her blog and I wanted to do the same.  I stumbled on to and it was pretty easy setting up the account and choosing my music. They have tons of songs.

So all the songs I picked have messages of strength, love, encouragement and confidence. (Plus they sound good too.) These are the songs I listen to as I chase after my dreams. I hope you can take a little time to enjoy then and be moved by them. It is ok if you want to dance and shake your groove thang to a few of them. Ha Ha Ha!

Well, these are the main features I wanted to show you on this tour. I hope you enjoyed the ride! See you soon!


  1. Looks like you have a lot going on here! Awesome!!!

  2. I love the look of your blog! The colors and butterflies are perfect! The links for inspiration are great...I love the Dear Lizzy blog as well!

  3. Thanks for the info on the "cutest blog on the block" site. I'm going to try to figure out something cute for my new blog as well :) I like all of your cards and information on your blog! Talk to you soon!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
