Votive Holder & Picture Frame Set

I created this votive and picture frame set with Indie Art cartridge on my Cricut E. The paper is metallic blue (but I can't remember manufacturer). Ribbon is May Arts. The candle is a battery operated votive (can NOT use an actual wax candle in a paper holder!)

May 25th I officially became a "senior citizen" . . . my 62nd birthday.
I remember how excited I was when I turned 16 (was that in this century?). Well, the only thing exciting about turning 62 is the fact that I'm still alive and kicking.
I have my Cricut E, DesignStudio, Cuttlebug, computer, and many other modern devices to keep my mind off things "senior". If I can just remember where I put them...

Cards . . .

I love to make cards!


MAY 20, 2009
Welcome to my blog! I am here to share my love of paper crafting: scrapbooking, cards, home decor, specialty projects - anything to do with paper + creativity. My favorite design tools are my Cricut Expression and DesignStudio. ProvoCraft rocks & rules! :)
Most of my working years were spent as a graphic designer, which made it easy to become addicted to paper crafting. In more recent times I have been teaching classes, including scrapbooking, card design, Cricut, DesignStudio, and other paper-based projects. One of my most Happy Heart Occasions was being the featured artist of ProvoCraft's Chirper newsletter (August 08). Three artists that truly inspire me are Becca Feeken (ODB), Dawn Griffith (SU) and Kelly Davis (BFF). I recently contracted with JoAnn's to teach classes at one of their superstores. This blogging stuff is new to me, so there will be mistakes for a while!
