An Attempt At Paper Weaving


Ashley Cannon Newell gave us this fun video on paper weaving.

I did a good job messing this one up with the added glitter, not liking that!


 I also want to say Happy Birthday to a sweet friend and teammate Sharron, I hope you have a wonderful birthday Monday!


Hi! I tried two times with this paper weaving, just couldn’t come up with what I had in my head. I have to say some of you made stunning cards using this weaving. I used Papertrey Ink stamps and dies for both cards. Im in a hurry , I will try to post the links later. 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
 The heatwave finally broke and we are now in the 80 and it cools down a bit at night ...its heaven compared to 104 and above for 4 days.

  1. Great job Marybeth! I was going to give this MIM a try and completely forgot. Love your polka dots in your second card!! Glad to hear you've had a break from the heat, hope it continues ;)

  2. Two great paper weaves, Marybeth. Love the coffee (or is it tea?) mug and the bright patterned papers... Fun B-Day card.
    The Thank You card is lovely too with it's Fall PP and stitched frame ~ no, I didn't see a glitter mess up, only a very artsy homemade card :-)

  3. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Marybeth! And so glad to hear you have had a break in the heat wave. We didn't get that hot here but it's been pretty uncomfortable--thankfully cooler today. I'm definitely ready for fall! Love your cards, especially the fun polka dots!

  4. Fabulous Marybeth!
    Love the fun colors of the polka dots!
    And happy you got some relief...
    not that hot here...
    but we've had streaks like it before and there's nothing that makes it better!

  10. I like the way you've said the heatwave has broken and it's still 80! Sounds pretty hot still to me. These are lovely Marybeth - the bright colours of the paper make a gorgeous woven base and I like the glitter around the leaf. It makes it pop more!

  11. Oh these are both so fun! I think the leaf one looks wonderful. I can't see any mess up... Cute stuff! Can't wait to see what you do with the new MIM today, toilet paper! haha!! Seriously, I think this new one looks fun!!

  12. I like both of these cards. Very clever idea to have that pattern inside a leaf die cut, and I just love those fun birthday papers you used on your birthday card.

  13. I love both your cards but that birthday card with the pretty pink cup is a show stopper, I love it.

  15. You are too hard on yourself! I think these both turned out well. I love the colors and fun nature of the second especially.
