Paper Crafting Projects


Princess Jocelyn

My sweet little niece Jocelyn recently had her 8th birthday and I will be giving her this card this weekend.  She is such a princess! I know I am biased as her aunt, but isn’t she just beautiful!  The Prima Fairy Belle papers were perfect for her.



I cut the fairy out and used Collall Decoupage 3D glue from Crafters Companion to offset it from the card.






A Christmas Layout

This layout uses the soft papers of Pion Design.  My intention is to take a photo of my 5 grandchildren together Christmas Eve and then place a sepia conversion of the photo onto the layout.  I participated in the Pion Design Blog November Challenge and the template below shows the pattern for the Challenge.



The Pion Design angels are so lovely and delicate.  I included this second picture because it is a little darker and shows the colors differently.  I couldn’t decide which picture I liked the best so I included them both!

I used the Magnolia DooHickeys poinsettia die to make the pink flowers.

I wanted to show of close-up of the beautiful Pion Design Nativity scene.



A Christmas Wedding Card

I know this is the 3rd post of this same card style, but I absolutely love it.  It is easy to make and folks like getting it as it’s so unique.  Plus it doesn’t need an envelope as the belt holds it together and gives it a finished, elegant look.  I used Pion Design Christmas papers for this card since this wedding will be near Christmas. It looks like my husband brushed some of the decorative pearls off when he was taking the pictures.  Of course he’s a typical guy and doesn’t notice things like that!  The ivory and brown worked great for the wedding effect!  Once again, inspiration and tutorial came from here.
