I've added Ann Ridge Creations to Facebook  (  )! LOL...........they say it's all intuitive.............don't think they were talking about me.  For some reason I find it all so difficult to understand so it's definitely a work in progress and I also updated my etsy site (  )and will be adding to it slowly but surely.

I've been trying to work through my depression and it's slow going but, I've also managed to make a few paper projects.  I love making my cards but haven't made any in a couple months now and would really like to get back into making them.  In the meantime I'm adding a new category which is title All Things Paper.

In addition to the cards for Christmas I also made this pretty quilled picture frame.  I love how it turned out!

I made the 2 sympathy cards 1 for my BIL (top 2 photos) and one for my Cousin.'s really been awhile since I've updated my blog.  It was a bit hectic getting everything ready for Christmas then getting the call Christmas morning that my Brother-in-Law had passed away at 7:03 a.m. It's not a date I will forget.  Anyway finally re-sized my photos and finished a project for my great-granddaughter.

This was very simple to make.  I found the tree tutorial on utube  I changed mine just a little bit from what she had done.   I used a scalloped edge scissor to cut the bottoms then used glitter to enhance them.  

Made it in Red and Green

On the next 3 cards I added quilled snowflakes on either side of the tree.

This year for my Christmas gifts to family I decided to make Christmas Ornament cards.  The ornaments are removable from the cards and the card looks great without.

Poinsettia Ornament

Snowflake Ornament

Wreath Ornament

I made some slider candy boxes for my grandchildren

I quilled  a tree, snowman and snowflake for the 3 boxes.

  I also made some sticky note pad covers

Finally managed to take some pictures of my paper flowers and a couple of small projects I had worked on.

This is a box of note paper with an embossed border and 6 different images using the colors red, green and blue.  These colors I had taken from the color of the cardstock used to create the box.  Clear actetate lid with border of the same cardstock.

This is a sticky note cover with pen.  Just made a simple rosette for the front

Love these 6 petal flowers made with 5 layers.

I finished a project for my step-daughters birhtday.   Love how it turned out.  I found the tutorial for the stationery box on SCS

I used red card stocked and layered the pink paisley and the pink striped paper onto that

On the inside I made a co-ordinating address book that can be removed, a side pocket to keep a book of stamps and a pen holder.  There is also 5 gift cards with envelopes, 5 gift tags, and 5 all ocassion cards with lined envelopes.

The pictures a little dark but these are the tags.  Red flowers with clear gem stones give the tags a bit of bling.

All the cards were made using elements and matching papers from the stationery box.

Quilled the numbers and added the flowers for this special 62nd Birthday card.

This one I embossed the background, inked the edge, quilled the butterfly and made the flower.  I added the birthday sentiment, some ribbon and rhinestones to finish it off.

I love how this one turned out.  It would be great as a goth wedding card or even an sympathy card.
The base of the card is black card stock layered with white another black, then a stamped black background.  Added ribbon, the leaves are lined with coiled gold jewelry wire and gold glitter.  Black roses with white glitter, black ribbon and faux pearls, white feathers and green leaves finish off this card.
