Close Up of My Cards in Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine!


Hi there!

Oh my gosh! I’m soooo excited! Two of my projects were published in the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine’s Summer issue! You’ll find them in the PageMaps section – which is a really fun section where the magazine provides a sketch, called a PageMap, and you make projects inspired by the PageMap.

In this post, I’m sharing the two projects I made for the magazine, but I strongly encourage you to go to their site and see what I, and others, have created! Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine is packed full of inspiration, so I guarantee you’ll find something you love!

Here is a picture of the PageMap I used for my cards:

And here are the two cards I made using it:

For the first card, the one with the lilacs, I stuck pretty close to the PageMap. For my focal piece, I used stamps and dies from a new-to-me company called Photoplay – the set I used for this card is called “Lovely Lilacs”.

For the second card, I tried to use the PageMap as inspiration but take some creative license in my interpretation. Like the first card, I used Photoplay stamps and dies for the focal point – this time with a set called “Bugs and Kisses”. For my interpretation of the PageMap, I turned it on its side, substituted bugs and a branch for the floral focal piece, replaced the half-circle with dimensional clouds, and took some general license with the placement of the sentiment and the twine.

I am so excited to have my projects included in the magazine! I hope you like these projects and that you’ll check out the PageMaps section of Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine for some amazing inspiration!

Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

      Aw! You are so sweet! Thank you!


designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
