Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

You Rule!

Thought I was done making Valentines (will share more on Sunday) but I had another to make. Decided to use a heart embossing folder and fit in a second card for the current challenge at Let's Squash It!! and All About Occasions at Watercooler Wednesday.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah White; 
Paper Studio Red and Pink;
Doodlebug Sweet Things
Stamps - Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit 08/2019 (sold out)
and CL402 Valentine Sayings (retired)
Embossing folder - Darice Heart Background
Other - EK Success Disney Princess ephemera;
Paper Studio & EK Success heart stickers; Copic Markers

Remember the chorus stay-in-touch project? I made over 100 cards for chorus members last year, then our chorus President added senior community shut-ins to our list. At Monday night's Zoom rehearsal she said, why don't we send Valentines to our shut-ins? I said sure, then promptly forgot until we had another Zoom meeting last night. So yesterday I scrambled to make a card to get in the mail - luckily service within the metro has only been taking a couple days!

I had a stamped queen left over from a previous project so colored her with Copics to coordinate with a Disney frame. I backed the frame with some Doodlebug text paper and stamped the sentiments; the inside says "you deserve the royal treatment". The hot pink paper was still on the craft table so I embossed another piece, this time using an old Darice folder - love this one too!

At chorus we'd normally be preparing to do Singing Valentines out in the community. No go this year, due to the virus, but we are sending virtual ones for a donation. This has worked well in the past for friends and family living out of state. My retired quartet recorded one of them years ago and were featured with the chorus on one of the local TV stations in 2011 (see it here if interested). 

Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!
