Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

February Placemats

Hi all,

I am making my daughter's placemats for every month this year. You can see the previous ones here.

Here are the February ones:

Maddie and Ellie each choose their own patterned paper from my stash.


I then cut their names using the Rock Princess Heart font and shadow. The names looked a little lost on the patterned paper, so I added a strip of white glitter paper under the names. I accented the names and corners of the white paper with some glittery heart stickers I bought a few years ago.
Here is Ellie's mat:

They are quite plain, as the Your Story Laminator works best on thinner and fewer layered items.

I also have decided that vinyl works best for the letters/layers as it is so much thinner. I need to up my vinyl stash so that future placemats can have more layers.

Thanks for visiting today

Have a Great ans Crafty Day!
