Welcome to my wacky world. I call it that because sometimes I feel like I am off in my own world. As the saying on one of my stamps and
my fridge magnet says "I know i'm in my own little world. It's OK they know me here."

Here you will learn a little about me and my life. Like my marriages, my critters and my hobbies. I love taking photos. so along the way there might be alot of photos.My life is full of ups and downs, more often the downs. I just try to keep on a happy face. Doesnt always work when you suffer from anxiety and depression. But I still always manage to keep my Bubbly little personality.

Handmade Embossing Folder

This is my fairy embossing folder that was handmade by my Secret Sister Heidi (inklings on SCS).  Not only did she include a piece already embossed she wrote the exact layering process to get a great impression down.    After i had posted my thank and list of what i had recieved everyone wanted to know how to make them.  So she posted it on the thread and i am sharing it with you heare.  Again to save typing i am just going to copy and paste. 

"I made some with cricut cut outs from thin cardboard, punched shapes (sometimes I punch 2 of the same shape and glue them together),some from chipboard shapes-already cut from the store, and believe it or not--some with confetti. You know that shaped metallic confetti. I glued 2 layers (one layer didn't seem thick enough)of the shape randomly on cardboard. The trick to making the best impression is to run it thru your cuttlebug using the correct layers-and the Spellbinder rubber embossing mat HAS to be on top of the paper you are trying to emboss."  (Per Heidi Inklings on SCS)
and here is the proper layering she listed for me. 
1-- Plate A
2-- Plate B
3-- Folder (designed Cardboard)
4-- Paper
5-- Rubber mat/Spellbinders Rubber impression mat
6-- piece of cardboard for shim
7-- Plate B
run through machine.
