First Blog Post!!!!!

Hello fellow crafters, friends and relatives! Welcome to the blog for Shrimpy Sue Designs. Shrimpy Sue Designs is a one woman paper crafting company focusing on card and home decor. I will be posting at least twice a week, these posts will include photos of projects for sale, for sharing and just for fun. I plan to post tutorials, challenges and tips and tricks for papercrafting and the tools used in papercrafting. I am going to be giving away some blog candy in honor of my opening blog post - I will use a random number generator on August 22nd so leave a comment on this post!
People often want you to describe your style- - I find this very hard as my style of work varies with my mood. Sometimes I am feeling whimsical and old school, sometimes vintage and pretty and sometimes retro and sexy....lol. I try not to ever limit my crafting to one style but a common theme is often vintage or retro. I do love old stuff - old pretty stuff and old funny stuff. One style you wont see too much form me is cute - whimsy yes, cute not so much.
I really hope you follow my blog and come back to see what Shrimpy Sue is up to.

Here is a card I made recently using Stampin Up's Pedalin Past set and papers from The Girls Paperie line.

Here is a wall hanging I have done using Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl patterned papers and Maya Road chipboard. This is one of my favorite pieces I have made.
