Christmas in November!
Wow, I checked my blog here and didn't realize how long it's been since I last posted. I was busy with work and making creations for my Etsy shop. Now I've been off work for what will be at least a month because of a medical problem with my feet.
I have made 231 Christmas cards so far and more are in the making. I am sure more creations will be coming, as I just bought myself a great little tool that is brand new to the scrapbooking world. It's by Making Memories, and it's called The Slice. It's a digital die cut machine and I love it. Very easy to use, the shapes are cute, and it's little so it's portable.
Without further ado, let me show you what I've been working on!
I took a trip to visit my mom and stepdad about 6 years ago. I had lots of memorabilia from that trip and decided to make a scrapbook. I enjoyed making those first pages, and since then my style has changed so much. I never knew how much joy I get out of making things out of paper. It also is very relaxing for me when I am under stress.
I found the Etsy site through another website I frequent that is for scrapbookers.
I decided that, in addition to making my own albums, and gifts for friends and families that I could make some money doing it too, and that's how www.paperika.etsy.com was born!
