I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.
Hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying this beautiful fall Sunday. At least here in Delaware it is still beautiful and fall...I know many of you in the Midwest are already feeling the effects of winter. Today I have two things to share with you. The first is a card is for challenge PARTY1 for the 5th Anniversary party over at Sketches4All. It uses the sketch below and calls for a fussy cut item.
Here is the item I fussy cut -
And here is the card I created:
My next is a layout. I used the November 1st sketch from Stuck!Sketches. They are having a Guest Designer Call and I am going to throw my hat into the race...
Here's the sketch:
Here is my layout:
For a challenge I won last year I received the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet collection. I was so excited to find these old photos from a childhood trip to see Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland dance The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. I included hidden journaling about the day under the large nutcracker...
I use pop dots under the gingerbread boys to give things a bit more dimension.
I am also entering this into the November 2014 Mini Crop challenge #6 over at Turtle Soup. It calls for using old photos on a holiday layout.
I hope you have enjoyed this bit of holiday cheer!
Thanks for stopping by...all comments gratefully appreciated.
Last night I created a few Christmas cards for a few current challenges. The first one used a stamp I was so excited to use as it is just SO cute, from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I used sketch #372 from Mojo Monday.
This card is so much fun as the white scalloped circle is actually a mini card which I put a sentiment inside.
I am also entering this card in Sketches4All Cheryl's Christmas Card Challenge - Anything Goes. My next card is using Feeling Sketchy #108.
and my card:
I had fun with this as I knew that this reindeer that I picked up at the local Dollar Store would work great on a card. I had some wonderful silver & gold Anna Griffith papers and sentiments to go with it. I am also entering this in Sketches4All 5th Anniversary challenge PARTY2 which calls for a holiday card NOT using the traditional red and green and both of these cards in Soul Scrappers KKC1 calling for creating 2 Christmas Cards. I hope you have enjoyed this little blast of holiday preparations! Stop back soon for more creations!
