Cling Mount Stamp Storage

I have been doing some more stamp organization, I have removed all my stamps from their blocks and put them either on cling mount or I just buy cling or clear now.  I love this new way of storing my stamps, I did a video earlier on my clear mount and I brought it over to my cling too.  I have taken all my SU and others and put all together, freeing up lots of SU cases, and space.  Each sheet will hold many stamp sets, some of them have between 7-9 different SU stamp sets on one sheet.  I have a notebook with all my stamped images in it except these last few.  On this storage some you will see have clear sheets for the stamps those are the 8 x 10 pieces of plexiglass that you can get for like $1.95 at lowes, some have white sheets this is just laminated cardstock, and then their are a few of the justrite that I can fit 2 of the sheet into, on these I just ran a piece of clear tape where they are joined together.  I have found that I'm using many more stamps this way. The holders are by Office Depot 9 x 12 job tickets AVery also sells these.
Rubbermaid tote from Walmart32 qt measures 18.7 l x 13.3 W x10.5 D.

This is working out wonderful, I now have a ton of CD cases and SU cases that I will probably need to find a new home for.  Thanks for looking at another storage idea.

Graduation Cassie

Graduation is quickly approaching and as seniors get ready to go out into the world, we need to stop and remember what a special time of year this really is.  This card was made for a dear friend of mine, her daughter is graduating this year.  I chose the colors of black and silver that is what the school colors are, I used a digital stamp from Sassy Studios, used my large scallop retangle, oval, & frame spellbinder dies along with  cricut storybook and  graduation cricut carts for the inside, ribbon is from Stampin up along with the graduation saving on the front of card, I also used my first washi tape at the top and bottom of card.

Congrats to all the seniors out there wish the best of luck in your future.

Crafty Lady

I decided to do some coloring of some images that I had laying around, I had minor foot surgery on Monday so haven't been able to walk much.  So while I been surfing the net and watching the tv I decide to color some of my favorite images.  I used a Loralie digital image colored with my copics, punched edges are done with Martha Stewart Cherished Punch around the page, I also used glitter pens and some stickles.  Thanks for Looking.

Three things you don't want to hear from your Dragon

I just love these little dragon stamps and am having so much fun coloring them and actually using some of my supplies that I have on hand to make the cards.  Everyone that has received one thought they were so cute.  I'm also liking making the 6 x6 cards, I used my spelbinders die Labels 2 for the window opening, MS branch punch, MS stamp around the page, bee is a button that I cut the back off of, and the sunflower ribbon was actually a recycled item in  my stash it came off a set of cards.  Thanks for taking a moment to stop by and  look.

Inside & Outside Pocket

I have several birthday coming up in May so I was working on some cards, I don't know if this has been done before but I kind of made this card by mistake, in an attempt to do something different I came up with something wonderful for gift card giving. Here is my card made good.

Here is what you do to make this card, I was videoing it and camera messed up so here is the hands on method.  Start with a piece of 12 x 12  or 8 1/2 x 11 double sided printed paper.  Cut paper to 8 1/2 x 11.
You will have the  paper laying infront of you like a regular piece of paper score in the middle at 4.25, turn paper and score at the 5.5 mark you now have a piece of paper scored with 4 equal parts.
With outside print that you want to see the most of facing you place paper on Martha Stewart score baord in vertical form start at the top score at 4.50 and score over to the side forming a triangle on the right corner, turn paper around (bottom to top) and repeat score lines.
Now start folding



Now you can embellish this card any way you see fit, punch some borders and add to the slants, use ribbon on front, add cricut cuts, put your sentiments on a tag and place in the front pocket and your gift card in the second pocket.  Thanks for stopping by Hope you enjoy.
