Sundays With Lorraine


Hello, my crafty friends and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper! It makes me smile knowing that even with your crazy, busy schedule that you’ve found some time to be creative.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy a little creative therapy – you deserve it!

Season’s Greetings By Dana Tatar

There is something magical about the new The Night Before Christmas Pion Designs. I love how the monochromatic colors create the perfect background for the sweet Christmas photo. This collection is sure to bring back fond memories of Christmas gone by.


This is a collection capturing the anticipation and excitement surrounding the magic of Christmas Eve. With images and patterns of hanging stockings, fireplaces, Christmas trees, and playful children, this collection is destined to bring your cherished memories to life. Click here and I will take you over to the Pion Designs website so you can check out the entire line – you’re gonna love it!

Winter Wishes By Kelly Latevola

It’s time to break out the water color paper and create some magic! I instantly fell in love with the blue and purple water colored background and how it supports the adorable stamped snowflakes.

Kelly coated the paper with water and dropped in some Gambi Tansi watercolors to create the artsy background. For a complete list of supplies and step-by-step instructions, just click here and I will escort you over for a visit. You’re going to love all the techniques that Kelly has to share.

Fall Berry Wreath

I found the perfect wreath for your front door-  or any door for that matter. It can be hung now and still carry you through the winter holidays.  It’s easy to assemble, inexpensive, and oh-so-cute. What’s not to love?

With a little help from our creative friend Katie, you, too, can create this simple wreath for under $20 (versus the $100 which is what the cost for an almost identical wreath at popular online retailers). Click here and I will be happy to take you over to her blog Haute Apple Pie so you can jot down some notes on what supplies you’ll need.

Philly Cheesesteak Stew

If you are a fan of the traditional Philly Cheesesteak sandwich then you are going to love this “stick to your ribs” version which is served in a yummy sourdough bowl.

I highly recommend stopping by The Cozy Apron anytime you feel the need to kick things up a notch in the kitchen. Click here and I’ll escort you over so you can print out the recipe. Traditional Philly Cheese Steaks often have sauteed bell peppers in them, too—feel free to slice one up and add it in with the onions and mushrooms, if you so choose. Bon appetit!

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy our creative time together.
