Happy Spring

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is ready for Easter tomorrow.   I have been busy the past few weeks with the RG Studio Design Team and classes.  I also have gotten a cold from my granddaughter twice in the last 3 weeks, so that has slowed me down a little.

I made a few Easter cards and some table decorations I wanted to share.  All the designs I used for these projects can be found at

My first two projects are fun Easter cards featuring my granddaughter.  I used the Easter Rabbit Exclusive Digital Download and the Sketched Frames Exclusive Digital Download for both of these cards.

My next project is my table centerpiece.  It was quick and easy.  I placed my battery operated candles on my cake pedestal, poured jelly beans around them, and decorated them with belly bands I made using the Easter Rabbit Digital Download.

Place card holders for the Easter table were my last project. I had some left over Easter grass and used that!

 Those were my Easter projects for this year.  You could also use them for any Happy Spring celebrations too!  

I hope all of you have a glorious day tomorrow.  Enjoy your time with family and friends.  More projects and posts coming shortly.  Thank you for taking time to check my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below or at my email, lindahpd@aol.   

Happy Paper Crafting,

I Made It! RG Studio 360 Design Team

Hi everyone,

I am so excited, honored, and proud to be part of the RG Studio 360 Design Team.  I feel privileged to be a part of this group of  talented, creative women..  Richard Garay made the announcement last Saturday. I checked with our coordinator and was given the okay to display my entry projects.  

To apply for the team, we had to submit one card, one gift, and either a memory page or planner page. 

 My first submission is my card.  I used the "Make a Splash" digital download from the first card club kit.  This download will be available for purchase shortly.  The Card Club downloads are exclusive for period of time.  Please check out the Card Club for this month's purchase. 

My second submission is an 8 x 6 memory page.  I used the "So Loved" digital download for this project. And of course it features my granddaughter, Dacey.  I love the dangled hearts and foil on this project.

My last project is my gift project.  I used a frame I had in my stash.  I foiled and painted it.  I then used the "Winter Rose" digital download for the flowers on my project.  I love the pink and how it frames the saying.  

I loved making these projects.  Richard's digital downloads are amazing.  Each download comes in three formats, plain, outlined for easy machine cutting, and mini images. And you get all three!!!  How fun!
RG Studio 360 also offers at least 1 FREE digital download each month.  I used the FREE March digital download to make this card.

RG Studio 360 will be carrying more crafty supplies in the near future.  To keep informed on the latest happenings please join the RG Studio 360 Facebook group and/or follow RG Studio 360 on Instagram.

Here is a picture of all the great people that I will be working with along with Richard and his staff to Make Amazing Happen.

Another quick update.  FREE digital download and FREE virtual class is available on RG Studio 360 called "Make Waves".  Sign up and get the downloads and the link to the class on March 24th.  

I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to check out my blog.  If you have any questions or comments, leave them below or email me at lindahpd@aol.  

Have a great week!!!!

Box Cards and More


I hope everyone had a great week.  Time is certainly speeding by!!!  Last week I worked on finishing an order for a friend and also discovered how to make a box card.

The first card in the post is the order I had to finish.  My customer wanted a card for her sister with cats on it  I made an 5 x 7 card using the eclipse technique.  I love the way it turned out.

The next two cards are box cards that I learned how to make from a tutorial by Maymay Helms on the website.  Maymay made it so easy to follow and I love how they turned out.

This first card used products from Catherine Pooler Designs.  I love the butterflies and the spring feeling it gives.

This card I made for a very special person who loves pink and it going through some rough medical issues now.  I also made matching box envelopes for each card.

It is always fun trying a new technique especially when you love how it turns out!

I am so glad you took the time to check out my blog.  If you have any questions or comments, you can comment here or on my email at  I would love to hear from you.

Just a quick update, my projects were all submitted to RGStudio360 for the design team and the team should be announced by the middle of March.  Please be sure to check RGStudio360 on Facebook and at his new website. He has some amazing digital downloads and some are free!!!

I hope everyone has a great week!  Don't forget the time changes this weekend.  SPRING AHEAD

Happy Creating,
