    I used to scrapbook a lot, now just special photos. I still make cards, altered multi media canvases and tags. My favorite brands are Tim Holtz, Ranger, Prima, Spellbinders and Sizzix. Right now I'm working on my Christmas Cards (I'm a bit behind this year LOL).

    Friday my favorite online store Blitsy had their Black Friday sale and I grabbed a bunch of Sizzix Tim Holtz Christmas Dies, Distress Inks, and Distress stains...I'm so tempted to go back for more since there's still lots in the store. Monday they are having their Cyber Monday sale, can't wait to see what new stuff there'll be. Looks like I'm doing my own Christmas shopping this year LOL

    Sooo do any of you do paper crafts or multi-media crafts?

    Wow, I'm shocked that there aren't any other papercrafters out there. I thought for sure with a board as populated as this one I'd find some kindred souls.

    Hey Plum,

    I do card making. I would have replied to your thread sooner, but I've not been on here much lately. lol A group of ladies I work with and I got together this past Friday and had a "workshop" to work on scrapbook pages and 2 of the ladies wanted me to help them with their cards. They are pretty new to stamping and cardmaking. You're projects are awesome! I do much simpler cards and things. But then again, I've only been doing this for about a year and I'm still working on getting the supplies and machines I want. I think out of everything I have so far, the 2 things I could not live without are my Cricut Expression and my Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH. I'm going to order the Artiste cartridge this Thursday. I'm into the 3-D boxes and flowers right now. I've done some quilling but there doesn't seem to be much call for that around my area. I know the cards I have made using the quilling technique and given away were a hit.

    I'm still learning different techniques and styles to scrapbooking and cardmaking and the different projects you can do with them. It amazes me how some people can look at something and think, Hey I can do this with that.. lol Right now, I'm making home made flower soft. I'm waiting on my re-inkers so I can color it. I used the plain white on a card Friday to imitate snow and it turned out wonderfully!

    Anyway, I'm a cardmaker and interested in the papercrafts!! You're not alone! lol

    Late to the post, I too am a papercrafter, photographer, card maker, scrapbooker. Just got my chickens, going to be scrapbooking them. On a quest for chicken scrapbooking supplies. Good to know there are others on the board.[​IMG]

    Plund, I bought a book of card stock paper from JoAnn's a couple months ago that was nothing but chicken stuff! It had roosters of all colors, hens, even had pages that were nothing but chicken wire! I love it!! I haven't gotten into the scrapbooking yet, but I need to start. I have soooo many pics of my chickies! I am ashamed to admit it, but I have more pictures of my chickens than I do of my children put together!! I'm a bad momma! [​IMG]


    I bought some storage boxes at JoAnn's also that have chicken's on them. I love them. Course my DD said I was nuts for getting them, but she has learned to love them. Good luck on you scrapbooking! Post some pics sometime. I love looking at what other's have made! [​IMG]

    Card I made for a Mommy to be at church. I got asked if I would be willing to do a card making workshop for the ladies in the church after the Mommy to be passed it around. :)

    I won't bore ya with any more tonight. [​IMG] I just love making cards and crafts. It's fun...almost as fun as watching the chickens play chicken football!!
