Why you need to organize your cards



How do you store your cards?  What about when someone sends you a handmade card?  I have just that going on in my crafty space.  I have some cards waiting to find a home and needing a space to be safe until they make it to their new homes.  What about those special handmade cards you receive in the mail.  They need a special space too.

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team is sharing organization ideas all month long with an array of Eileen's awesome dies. 

Loving the Planner Storage & Organizer XL Die.  I cut mat board and pattern paper for the exterior.  Adding a couple extra cuts for the base, front and back of the box.  This requires a couple easy measurements depending on the size you want.

Before adhering the pattern paper I added a little spray stain for the inside.  Looks so pretty!  Then added all the pattern paper to the exterior.  I used Sookwang to add the paper.  Finish up with your embellishments.



Oh ya pretty card storing.


I even lined the box with this sturdy jute.


I stamped this #Hashtag sentiment and topped with my little star.


I had to piece together some paper... you know... paper mishaps.  I decided to use my unplanned look as a tuck spot for these little shipping tags.  Yep, I meant to do that...


Inky and stamped and everything.


I just love these boxes... must make more.

Don't miss what the Inspiration Team is posting all month long with awesome storage ideas.  I can't wait to see too.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
