Welcome to my paper play spot. I love to make cards and learn new techniques. I am also willing to share when I can. I hope you will look at what I create and smile.

Sorry I have been missing. We have something new in the family! A new member, but NOT a baby. LOL
We have a new Mr. & Mrs.!! My step-son married the love of his life on Friday.
Yes, it was cold! 14 degrees.
It was a beautiful wedding. I helped the new Mrs. make her invitations and RSVP cards over the past year.
I also did some (60+) favor boxes for the shower as well as the wedding. Here are the shower favor boxes.
Here is the card I made for them.
I used the Martha Stewart hearts punch around the page, Snowflake embossing folder, Spellbinders classic hearts (which I glittered), satin ribbon, and sticky pearl embellishments. The wedding colors were blue and yellow and they had a snowflake theme.
To make the hearts, I did not use the Spellbinders in the normal way. I drew around both edges on white card stock twice, overlapping them to entwine them. Then I cut them out with my craft knife. With the addition of some glue and glitter, I then ran them through my Cuttlebug between layers of wax paper to set the glitter into the glue.
I think it came together almost as well as this lovely couple did.
Congratulations to Cass & Casey. I know you were meant for each other and your love will only grow stronger day by day.
