I enjoy posting on here and so even if I just post for myself , I will feel good about doing that! Even though I have only been craftying for 3yrs, this has really changed my life! This is also serving as a journal for me , where I can post my crafty journey!

My Easter Loaded Envelope

Hi crafty friends!! I'm back to share this next project!! Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I just love the overall colors like the pastel colors!! So when this swap came up on Facebook over in one of the LE groups that I am in, I had to sign up!! I got partnered up with a really talented and sweet lady Brigitta Raaijmakers, she is from The Netherlands!! She mailed mine out a day before I did and she just recieved mine (2weeks later), I was so frustrated because I really wanted her to get hers before Easter but Im just glad she got it! 
I also made an altered Egg carton, I gessoed, painted, added lace/trim to it and then added plastic eggs with small yummies inside them. I'm so glad she loved everything! I hope u will love it too!! Here are the pics of what she was sent!! xoxo, Jeanne

Feb. & March Mini Albums

Hi crafty friends!! I'm back with another blog post! I would have made it earlier but I was wanting to finish up the album for March so I could post them together. I know that I probably keep repeating what I say about these Mini album kits that I receive from Frank Garcia but I can't stop bragging about them. I love incorporating lines from different Prima collections where I can. For example the Feb. Kit came with some of the newest collection from Prima "Love Clippings"  but I incorporated "Tales of You and Me" in this mini as well. I think this is my favorite to date but I think I keep saying that about all of them lol 
Hope u like what I've made!!

MARCH MINI ALBUM


Happy Spring!!! Now this album is super colorful and you actually feel like your in the middle of a field of flowers! This paper collection was not from Prima, but I still loved it!! I hope u like it!! xoxo


















I honestly have found that these are my favorite projects to make even though every project I make is made with so much love and it has been such a blessing that I found this amazing way to express myself. I don't only think of it as a "hobby" like maybe alot of people do, I think of it as my therapy for my health issues especially for my depression. So if there is anyone out there that is going thru something like this, I really suggest that you give this a try. You might just surprise yourself like I did! 
Thanks again for reading my blog post! xoxo, Jeanne

Birthday card (Late post)

Hi everyone! I'm back again!! I was going thru my blog and have noticed that I had missed posting a card I had made back in Feb. for my sons girlfriends' 21st bday! Idk how I managed to do that. I really thought I had posted it! 
Anyhow,  I used the beautiful papers from one of the Gorjuss Girl paper stacks. I also used my dressform chipboard that was gifted to  me , I used some paper flowers from Prima and one from Michaels. I also layered up some metal flowers and a black center from Prima as well as some black trim from my stash and added some bling strands on my dressform. The sentiment stamp is from Tim Holtz ,I embossed it using Lindy's stamp gang embossing powder . 
I will be using these beautiful papers in  more of my projects! Love the colors of them!! Thank you for checking out my post and I hope you will see the rest of my blog. If you happen to see a duplicate post in another posting on here I apologize. Having this brain fog is the worst thing. Seems like my memory is worse somedays. Please bare with me! Thanks again! xoxo, Jeanne

GDT Projects for J & S Hobbies and Crafts

Hi crafty friends!! I'm back today with my Guest Design Team projects for J & S Hobbies and Crafts. I was super excited to make these projects because I've been anxious to use the beautiful flowers I was sent in my design team package along with the rest of the items! So here are my projects for March! 
I don't want to make this post too long but if you would like to see the video of my DT package from J & S Hobbies and Crafts , you can click here
This was my 1st of 4 projects I made. I was anxious to use a paper collection that I had just recently ordered, the brand new collection , G45 Portrait of a Lady. I had a swap that I was a part of on Facebook. It was a Stack of Friendship letters, we had to make our own envelopes and embellish them. While I was making the envelopes I decided to make one of the Keepsake Envelope Boxes that I had already had made before. I figured my swap partner would like this instead. I hope you will like it just as much as she liked it!! 







These next projects are something I have been gradually been working on my card making skills! I must say I have enjoyed making them. I just purchased the Anna Griffin cuttlebug and have a few thin dies. So when I recieved my 1st Heartfelt Creations die I was super excited! Check out J & S Hobbies and Crafts for a variety of Heartfelt Creations products. The following products are all from this great company. I hope you like the cards I made!
