Here are some of our craft articles published through Ezine@rticles.com

We write periodic craft articles for Internet publishers to help "get the word out" about crafting and scrapbooking with vintage images. You may run across them when you do a Google search for crafting terms or techniques, or find them on crafting blogs and websites. We have written about making pop up cards, creative gifts for crafters and scrappers, tinting black and white images, scrapbooking basics, and more.

Recently, we are proud to say, we achieved Platinum status with Ezine@rticles.com in recognition of the quality of our articles. It seems that thousands of readers have read and appreciated them. Granted, for a precious metal, platinum seems in healthy supply these days. In any case, we get to display this nifty symbol:
