Valentine Decoration

I love putting blue into my Valentines. I think I might be putting this one in my Etsy shop. But at this moment I am displaying it in my Living room just as my own Valentine Decoration.

I just love the retro vintage feel of this paper project.

Most recently published sets for Storytellers.

This is what the sets look like when I send them to be reviewed by the staff at Storytellers.
Then they let me know exactly how much they will pay me for each set. After I get paid, they are theirs' to do with as they please. And seeing them turned into something tangible is awesome.
Storytellers club is the scrapbooking company that I am priveledged to design for. I have had many sets now published into punch outs, and many sets that have been published to the digital part of storytellers club.
These are sets from the last 3 months, and that means they were made into punchouts. Then they are sent all over the planet to people who join and are sent these large packets each month. You can view all their wonderful products at The paper that their graphic designers design to go with each set is awesome. I enjoy seeing my designs made into physical pieces.
The above design "Noteworthy was done up in the November pack for Storyteller's Club.

                                                          In December's pack Yuletide Bliss

                                                           In January's pack Bohemian Swirl

White Christmas tag swap

Tags from the White Christmas tag swap on
Flickr. It was one that we had to make 20 tags for
and send them into one person. so we recieved 20 tags
back and I decided to do mine up in a garland and hang
them in between my pillars in my dining room. I also added
some wonderful old icicles made from vintage mercury glass
beads. It was so fun to see everyones different styles and
ideas for tags.
