My first blog entry.

Hi everyone! This is my first ever blog entry. I got into it from trying to look at all the wonderful cards and scrapbook pages that other people have posted online. I can spend hours just reading and looking through images on these blogs. A year ago, if you'd have asked me, I would have had no idea that so many people were into scrapbooking and card making! I had no idea what a Cuttlebug was or what the Cricut was! For real! One day I asked my husband what Michael's was...after he showed me I was hooked! I think sometimes, secretly, he must regret having shown me hahaha!!! Aw but he is very supportive of my new found hobby. He even critiques my work sometimes and puts in his two cents. Haha!

One of my favorite blogs is that of Kristina Werner. I think I must have watched all of her Make a Card Monday and Finally Friday videos on YouTube! I just love the cards that she makes. I love that they're simple and yet they grab your attention immediately! And her color inspiration IS really inspiring. It's also where I found Crafty Girl Designs, by Tessa Wise. She also makes the most wonderful cards I've seen so far. I actually got into card making because of watching YouTube and looking at these blog sites. Here are my very first cards :) Inspired by this wonderfully striped cardstock from The Paper Company. In case any of you are wondering why they're all "baby" themed, my sister-in-law is giving birth this month and I was thinking of her while making these cards :)

I'm not yet very good at taking pictures of my work. Some of the images aren't as clear as most of the websites I've seen...practice...practice...
