Another Card Site

From time to time I plan to add to my "link list" those websites I find that are very informative about paper crafts. The Rubber Therapy site is beautiful and has many links to how-tos and examples of wonderful cards.

Sheetload of Cards Website

Here are some of the 12 cards I made this afternoon. I found a website hosted by Alicia Ekermans at where she and several friends have designed several card layouts where you can make 12 or 24 or 36 cards in an afternoon using four or five sheets of cardstock or figured paper. My cards aren't exactly like hers as I used the papers and cardstock I'm trying desperately to use up (so I can go to the stores and purchase more in true craftaholic mania). These started out to be for men but they are certainly pretty enough for women, too. The layout was in the September 2007 newsletter issue.

Also, in addition to this card, Carla Peicheff ( has a beautiful Christmas card posted on Alicia's site in the November 2007 issue. ***Unfortunately, as of September 2012, this great card making website is no longer publishing***

Formal Flower Card

This is a card I enjoyed making for a friend who really likes oriental items.

More Cards

While Tropical Storm Fay rages outside, I am at my computer looking at the splitcoaststampers webpage ( for greeting cards to make. This is an excellent place to find any technique you want to learn and then thousands of cards. Right now I'm trying to make enough birthday and thinking-of-you cards to last until after Christmas so I can concentrate on my Christmas cards. I usually make three or four styles. On November 8, I'll be attending another Stampin' Up Last Chance Christmas Card Gallery where I know I'll make sixteen more cards, a couple of which I'll probably duplicate.
Recently I was in Dollar Tree and noticed some note cards in packages of eight with the front and back the same. I split them in two pieces which gave me sixteen card fronts half of which I gave to a friend. Using various stickers and some pop dots, I didn't make them all the same. My sister, Janice, gave me the idea to line the envelopes to help use up the reams and reams of paper we both have on hand.

Titusville Girls' Club

This club is made up of my two granddaughters, Hannah (age 7) and Hope (age 5)of Oviedo, FL, and my sister's, Janice Neitzey, two granddaughters, Maggie (age 5) and Emma (age 4)of Front Royal, VA. They met for the first time in July 2006 when my sister, her daughter, Kara Lynn, and her two girls came to Titusville to spend a couple of weeks with us.
Unfortunately, this year they were not able to meet as the Lynn family was having car problems. Hopefully, they will come again next year so I can add more pages to their scrapbook.

Getting Started

Hopefully, I will be able to post some of my latest creations (most of which are NOT original, but of necessity, copied from others). My sister, Janice, got me hooked on making greeting cards because (she said) "It's sooo easy". I then swore I would never get invovled in scrapbooking. Then my husband and I took a first ever cruise by flying to Alaska and taking the southbound Carnival Spirit to Vancouver. You cannot go on a cruise and NOT scrapbook it! Within two months, we bought a RV and went from Titusville, FL, to San Diego, CA, following US 80, then returned following US 66. Our last trip to date was from FL to AK which lasted nine weeks. Some of those pages may appear here in the future along with other trips and some of the cards.
