"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

"A Happy Hello" Blue Tag

I had so much fun making the Spring is Here ATC that I decided to use some of the same elements in a tag. The base paper is my handmade paper. I used the Floret mask by Tim Holz and Colorbox ink. The flowers are Prima Flowers, the swirl stamp is by Stampendous and the "A Happy Hello" stamp is by Hero Arts. The polka dot paper is by Me&My Big Ideas.

This tag was so quick and easy and I think the monochrome look suites it well! So much fun!

I'd love to hear your comments. :) Thanks!

Spring is Here! ATC

Spring is officially here! Time for warmer weather, sunny days, blooming trees and flowers, bees, butterflies, thunderstorms and much more! I made this ATC for a swap I am in this month. I made the background using Peeled Paint distress ink and floret masks by Tim Holz as well and bright blue and deep purple inks from colorbox. The flower and swirl stamps are by Stampendous! The jeweled flowers are K&Company and the big green glitter flower is Prima Flower. This was fun, quick and easy ATC to do and I just love the color combination! I sure hope my swap partner enjoys it!

Launching New Website -

After months of planning and designing it is time to launch my new website! I am way beyond excited right now. This is something I have been wanting to do for so long. will be the place to buy Craft Studio Paper handmade papers, greeting cards and more! Right now I only have the handmade papers, greeting cards and 2010 Christmas card pre-orders available but I am in the process of developing new products that will be introduced soon. So, check out and bookmark it!

I will continue to have my Etsy shop. The Etsy shop will have sets of handmade papers instead of individual sheets. And it will also have my art pieces and handmade paper shapes.

Stop by both shops anytime! And thanks to everyone for your support because without you, there would be no Craft Studio Paper.
