Changing ...

I've not been very active with blogging ... life, work, family have kept me busy. 

I've decided to start a new blog for a new season in my life.  Please come over to for more creativity.  I am making more cards rather than scrapbooking but with 2 grandsons you can be sure there will be scrap pages as well.

Creativity is important to me.  And I realize that virtual friends are just as important as my in-person friends.  I hope you will join me on my new blog.

Another set of cards

Altenew is celebrating their 5-year anniversary.  Go check out their blog and the 4 days of blog hops.  There are some great products.

It's been awhile since I've posted but I've been creating.  Doing lots of cards for Cards for Soldiers.  Just sent off a box of 300 and these were in that box.

The first set of cards used by new favorite stamp and die set from Altenew - Leaf Medallion.  I saw someone use this set on a layout and I can't wait to play with that idea!

The second card was a mock-up of a spinner card.  I was following Jennifer McGuire's instructions (but don't just her on my work LOL).  It's a card for my grandson showing some of the things we do together.

Thanks for stopping by … let your creativity change someone's day!

Altenew Beautiful Heart

Learning to watercolor with pencils and paints.  Altenew stamps and dies make it easy to be creative.  I really like the quality of their stamps and dies.  Thanks for stopping by.

One year later

Can't believe it's been a year since I posted.  I have been creating … just not posting :)

Hoping I remember to update more often :)  Thanks for stopping by - now go get crafty, Susan.

Getting caught up ...

... said no scrapper ever.  Well, I get to say it!  I have one more scrapbooking project and I'm caught up with recent pictures.  One day I'll get to my "heritage" pictures.  But I don't count that as not being caught up :)

And, yes, I have my Christmas cards done for this year.  Well...I have to put the sentiment on the inside and address the envelopes, but they are almost done :)  

Thanks for stopping by, Susan

It's birthday time!

My Grandson's birthday was this weekend and I made him this shirt (the theme was construction).  It was the first vinyl project I did.  I've got another vinyl project to work on but I keep buying the wrong vinyl!

This card is one of my favorite to do.  It is fairly easy but looks complicated - real impressive to the non-crafter :) 

I've got some more projects to work on, including getting ready for a crop on Saturday.  Thanks for stopping by, Susan

It's a long weekend!

I look forward to long weekends so I can play with my scrapping stuff.  It's a challenge to get to scrap since we are living in a temporary apartment for another 2.5 months.  Two days in a row, I've pulled everything out and crafted for a bit and then my Grandson has come over.  As much as I'd love to craft with him, he's only two so that wouldn't end well!

But... I have gotten two cards done this weekend.

My Grandson's birthday is next weekend and his party is a construction theme.  I had pieced the backhoe together last week and today made it a slider card.  So much easier than I thought (the slider).

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm hoping I'll get to post again tomorrow... assuming my sweet boy doesn't come calling!  Susan
