Paper Trip to Paris!

The opportunity to visit Paris has not crossed my path. Yet. I have been fortunate to have visited other places — Japan, Singapore, England and Australia, to name a few. I hope to travel to more places in the future, but for now I will stay near my zip code.

I have visited the sale aisles of several craft stores in my area though! On one such visit, I came across a selection of craft paper books that normally sell for $20 that were on special for only $5. Well, every crafty person knows you can’t pass on a deal like that! Especially when they have several selections of themed craft paper books!

These papers were purchased a few years ago and I have used many of them. Today I would like to share some handcrafted cards I designed using the Paris collection of “My Favorite Things.”

Several papers in this collection have larger images on them that can be used for scrapbook pages. Since I need smaller images on my cards, I cut out portions of these images. I also use them as backgrounds on my cards.

It feels good to use older papers that have been in my paper stash. When I see new papers I always want to get them, but then remember that I already have so many. A true case of ‘too many papers, not enough time to use them!’

Since these papers are probably out of stock, I will only be able to create one or two of these. If you know someone who loves all things ‘Paris’, I would like to create a card for them! Contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for more information.

Hanging Out at the Beach!

Many people enjoy being on the beach. Some are fortunate enough to live by the ocean water, while others choose to visit the seasides.

If you can’t be at the beach, at least you can have a card that reminds you of the beach!

Mother’s Day Cards!

The official Mother’s Day is almost here! Unofficially, we should acknowledge our moms everyday! That makes sense to me!

I thought I would share a few cards I have created for this special holiday.

These card designs can also be changed into other types of cards. This is another reason I enjoy creating handmade cards, so many ideas can be used in different ways.

Thank you for visiting today, and enjoy your creative day!
