Getting Crafty | Making A Greeting Card


Thought you might wanna see the result of a crafty afternoon or crafternoon as I sometimes call it. Using scrapbooking paper elements: a yellow vintage rose, pink flourish cut out, Remember You Are Loved quote, and a butterfly; mixing up paper to create a little story can be so much of an enjoyment to me. It's sort of like collage. I think I will do more cards, I just like the feeling of placing things down on paper and it's almost like putting together a puzzle.



  1. This looks like so much fun, and the final result is too cute. :) I totally know what you mean about paper pieces fitting together like a puzzle. I'm working on some snail mail for you and can't wait to send it! xo

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks so much ;) and yay I can't wait to get your lovely snail mail! x Merissa

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
