|Textured Cardstock Is Great For Distressing And
Adds Visual Interest To Your Projects
It appears he’s amazed to see so much paper crafting happening in The Paper Palace after October’s lull! My motivation? I’m participating in Creative Every Day’s Art Every Day Month Challenge – and it would be fabulous if you joined me too!
Here are a few of the projects I’ll be working on this month.
|Be Yourself – My First Altered Torso Tag|

|Stretch Your Cardstock By Thinking Before You Cut!|

|Transparencies Are Clearly A Creative Crafting Choice|
I’m kicking off the week with a little challenge I created for myself.

Today I used the same layout and embellishments to create a very elegant baby card – click here to see the card and the tutorial that goes with it!
I’ll also be posting the first of my Altered Torsos shortly. The design of this torso was influenced by Gingersnap Creation’s Focused On Fabrics theme of the month!
Now, if all of these ideas – or all of your blog hopping – has made you hungry, be sure to check out my Blueberry Buckle recipe before you go!
And, be sure to stop by Friday when I’ll be sharing some fabulous Tsunami photos for Furry First Fridays – an awesome place to feature your fur angels!
