Welcome to my Blog!

So many of my friends have said to me, "Betty, you should have a Blog, it's so easy to do".

Here's my attempt at Blogging. My name is Betty (aka Scottie), I'm from North Carolina. I've been involved in a variety crafts over the years, computer crafts, machine embroidery. I enjoy making cards, boxes, bags and items for the home. Here you will find some of my projects (past and present).

I'm sorry I haven't been a very good Blogger. It's been too long since I have uploaded any images of what I've been creating. I decided that I should finish taking pictures and upload them tonight and share them with my friends.

I got the idea for this one from Dawn 5377 on Youtube, I thought it was so cute. Lemonade anyone? Here I was experimenting with adding coloring to the center of my flowers.
Since I have a love of Spinner Cards I decided to see if I could make a Circular Spinner Card. I designed it in SCAL and cut it on my Expression. The flower was also cut on my Expression. There were three people who had created a similar flower so I can't remember who designed the one I used here. I used homemade fluff for the center.
This Spinner Card was actually my first attempt at creating a Circular Spinner Card.I cut the scallop for the next two cards on my Expression. The first card you can see the paper I marblized, using shaving cream and Jim Holtz Alcohol Inks. I like the look of the double scallops on this one.

Some times I like to make simple cards. This card is an example of double embossing done with the Cuttlebug. This effect is so simple yet elegant. I have a few more similar to this card that I will post as soon as they are completed.Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment so that I know you were here.
