March Goals and more!

Spring is right around the corner! I don't know about you but it makes me feel like spring cleaning. I am slowly working on my craft room. First thing I have been doing is cleaning out my stamp sets. Getting rid of what I don't want and recording in Evernote the information of the stamp sets I want to keep.

Large Organizer

Item Number: Z1834-


Keep your crafting supplies organized in this sturdy plastic, see-through, stackable storage container. Comes with removable dividers. Perfectly sized to hold up to 40 My Acrylix™ stamp sets. 14½" × 10½" × 7½".

Organising in Evernote

Very simple tool to use for organising. Love it. I have written on my organiser containers Box 1, Box 2 etc. I will then mark each stamp set with the Box they are in as I have recorded that same information in Evernote. I just found that once I pull a stamp set, I forget which box it came from and to make putting away easier and faster, having them marked ahead of time works great. Plus, it will make it easier for other people to put away when they want to use my stamp sets. I will have a binder with the photos and information to help with ease of finding the stamp set for other people. 

This stamp set was in the retired Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartrige kit but, for those who have it, here is a card I made with it using Desert Sand, Sapphire, Canary, Cranberry and White Daisy Cardstock and inks. The dots on the cup cake are made with nuvo crystal drops (not a Close To My Heart product). I cut the cup cake and the banner from the Artiste following the instructions on the stamp set for size of cut. The canary background is 2 seperate pieces cut from the retired Close To My Heart Art Phylosophy Cricut Cartridge and the Sapphire mount is embossed with a Close To My Heart embossing folder. I got the background idea from another artist on Pinterest. This card will be added to my card buffet.

Mojo Monday #483

Here is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. All the patterned paper is retired Close To My Heart paper called Snowhaven. The background border is cut from the Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. The Heart and the title was both cut from the Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut Cartridge. Stamped the title with a background stamp. Silver glitter ribbon (retired) and blue brads (retired). I used a journal pen to doodle around the edge of the heart. 

I wanted to show other ways to use this paper so if you have this in your stash you can see how to use it for something else besides Winter or Christmas. 

Now, if you have this paper pack in your stash, make something with it outside of the box (scrapbook pages, card, gifty item) and post your creations on my facebook page below. It's fun to share.

Woo Hoo!!!!

It's February!!!!! With February comes that wonderful day called Valentines Day!!!I can remember Valentines Day as a child, making a box to take to school, signing all the Valentines, the Party, the candy and getting all those Valentines from your friends. Now, I make them for our grandchildren. Love to see their smiles when they receive their gifts.

Mojo Monday

Here is my take on the Mojo Monday 481 sketch using the Close To My Heart Sugar Rush paper pack, stamp set, complements and embellishments. I used out of the tiny bit of paper left from making the 3 2-page layouts and 9 cards in the Workshop Your Way. The half circle was cut with the retired Art Phylosophy cricut cartridge and the lace was cut from the same cartridge and adhered on top. I then trimmed it down to the shape and size of the half-circle. Really fast and simple.

Click on the card below and add your own version of this sketch then share it with us on my Facebook page

I also entered this card into the Heart 2 Heart Challenges, Round and Round. Anyone is welcome to participate in either of these challenges and add your link to share your creations. I would love to see them too.
