My Paper Crafts Group

Once a month I meet with some members (whoever is interested that month) of my friend Heidi's Meetup group ( to share our unique interpretations of projects from the current issue of Paper Crafts magazine. ( We each prepare two projects and bring enough supplies for everyone in the group to make one as well. One of the projects we select ourselves, and the second is picked in advance by Marty, Heidi's fiance. I love seeing how everyone interprets the second one. We're all looking at the same item in the magazine, and each of our designs is completely different.

Today's inspiration piece, selected by Marty, was an advertisement that featured a white Christmas tree and silhouettes of people and lots of flourishes. Here is Pat's card:

This is how Heidi interpreted the ad:

And finally, here's how I saw it:

I am fascinated by the way the three of us looked at the same page and came up with three totally different cards.

Now for the cards that we did based on projects that we selected ourselves. Here is my French-themed Christmas card:

Heidi's fabulous peacock card:

And Pat's stunning card which featured a wonderful camo technique from TJN (, and beautiful watercoloring:
