Whew....getting back to 'normal' ???

How are you? It's rainy, and oh, so dreary here in Mo. It's been a perfect day to be in my girl cave, playing with paper. I'm actually working on some things to share with you in June!!!

Things are slowly getting back into a normal routine here, but I still have SO many things to share that I created but never posted. I'm going to attempt to clear out that file in the next week or so. You can consider this your warning - I am going to flood the blog with photos and very little talk.

Enjoy!!! Ask questions if something jumps out at you :)

Thanks for popping in!
See you soon,

Patti J.

April Workshop

Hi there!
April was a pretty busy month! I made 20 of these for the grandkids teachers...

They were filled with cute 'shreds' of pink and green, and goodies! I designed the box to the size I wanted. The sweet die set was purchased from Taylored Expressions. It's one of their 'sack-it' sets. Love how easy it was! There was a cute little sentiment box added at the bottom of the box, between the bunny feet.

Shirley and I had an April workshop, as well. The first one filled up right away, so we scheduled one a few days later, which also filled up. We had a great time with some very fun creative ladies! Some were brand new paper crafters, and we loved seeing their smiles after they made cool stuff!

Here's what they made:

This card uses stamps and dies from an older Die-Versions set. It was one of my designs.

Cuteness....! This was Shirley's 3-D design. It's a popcorn sleeve. I think her stamps were from Crackerjack Palace.

This was one of my designs - it is a W card.

Here's another adorable card design by Shirley. This uses stamps from Repeat Impressions.

Here is Shirley's last design. It's such a pretty card, and the flap is held closed with a tiny magnet.

This project uses Stampin'Up supplies.

That's all I have for today!
Thanks for stopping by on this glorious Saturday!
If I don't see you tomorrow, Happy Easter!!!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

April and Texture...

Happy April, everyone!

Wow, this is my Medicare month! Where have the past 50 years gone?'s a beautiful day today in Missouri - hope it's nice where you are. Still chilly, but OH MY, that sunshine rocks my world!

The monthly challenge at Scor-Pal, is Texture, and of course, more than one fold.

I chose to make a fun candy box. This little box works perfectly for the flatter candies, like the Dove chocolates I used. The box was made, and then I added a panel on the top that I embossed with a Happy Birthday folder for texture.

For my project, I used: Scor-Pal Eighths, and Scor-Tape 3/8".

Here is the box...

We hope to see your creations with texture in our 'More Than One Fold', Scor-Pal challenge!

We also have a ton of inspiration in the Projects section of the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative! 

Happy April!
