Scrap Album

Scrap Album:

This album was created with random scraps of patterned paper. It took about one hour to complete. I was not concerned with matching papers; I just used them as they were, created pockets with some, and added tags from ones I had left over from other projects. See the video at 





Steam Punk Album

Steam Punk Album:

This album is made from three file folders. My theme was Steam Punk which is a cross between vintage Victorian and tech. I make the album in the grunge style because I think it suits Steam Punk. You can see the album in more detail in my video at

Shopping Spree

Shopping Spree:

Okay...yesterday I went out to just pick up a couple of things and about $150.00 later, I came home with another stash of stuff. Will the madness never end? I cannot control myself when I go hunting for supplies. There is always something new and wonderful to be found and to be had! They should do a special edition of that television program "Hoarders" - they could call it "Hoarders Special Edition for Scrapbooking Junkies". I am sure there are many of us who could be featured on this program. Oh well- you only live once. As I have told many people, when I pass on just scatter my ashes in the aisles of Michael's Craft Store!
