Too Cute to Spook!

I welcome you to my (semi-new) blog. We missed the renewal notification from the host company and I lost the web address. Thus, a re-birth of Krista’s Paper Cafe is now found at www.KristasPaperCafe.US (caps added for emphasis). The top level domain (or part the part after the dot) is the only change. I appreciate […]

Summer Butterflies

I recently used the same recipe to make cards for a number of different occasions. This card cut is called a collar card. If you rotate the card to the left, it looks like the collar on a shirt. You’ll even see cards that are made to look like shirts! There is another name for […]

All About School
