It’s a Baby with Pals Paper Arts #261


Good day New York, how I’ve missed you!  I’m writing you live from the Big Apple!  Well, actually I’m in Staten Island with my brother from another Mother Justin Krieger (  I came all the way out here to participate in special training from the man himself….and from Michael Trent (, the Crazy American artist living in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brasil.  He’s in New York teaching and I had to get some “training time’ in with two of my all time favorite artists.  I’m going places my friends and then I’m going to bring their fabulous training back to my local friends.

First stop is Scrap-A-Latte, where Michael is teaching his famously most cutest Baby Book.  I can’t wait to put this album together and show it off to you tomorrow.  Oh my gosh, I’m so excited I can’t sleep!

PPA 261 Jul 23

The Pals Paper Arts #261 sketch challenge couldn’t have had better timing!  A baby card to go with the book that I’ll show y’all tomorrow.  I loved this sketch because it challenged me to come up with something original that I had never tried before and I love new exciting challenges.  So folks, I’d love for you to try this at home…make something different with this awesome sketch by Nicole Watts.
New YorkI had just arrived and my two best buddies greeted me with open arms at Scrap-A-Latte. Michael Trent, me (duh), and my BFF Justin Krieger.

Maggie Made Tips:

  • Shaker Card: My very first shaker card…only took four takes (LOL).  All I’m going to say is I’M HOOKED and practice is going to make perfect.  When learning something new and you become a little frustrated, all I can say is NEVER give up!
