Craft item organization

This organizational idea is just too cute and wonderful not to share with you!  I just might be making one of these very soon!  It comes from fellow CTMH Consultant, Sarita Schraeeder's blog using the My Creations Cubby.  Yes, the very box that was part of the WOTG - Advent Calendar kit.  I love how she cut transparencies to make the boxes clear to hold her chipboard letters so you can see them!

Until my next post, happy crafting!

Tommy layouts & cards

This Monday night was my monthly scrap class and at the request of the Hostess, we used Tommy papers for the layout.  Her daughter recently graduated from Montana State University and she had a nautical themed graduation party so she thought this paper pack would be perfect.  This is the layout I created for class.  It is based on the sketch Spellbound in the Magic How To book.  As I was cutting papers for the layout and debating which cardstock to use Honey or Outdoor Denim?  I then decided they could choose when they arrived.  I had the 10 layouts cut, 5 with Honey as the large pieces in the background with Outdoor Denim mats, and the other 5 with Outdoor Denim as the large pieces with Honey mats.  It was a first come first serve type deal.  This is not the first time I have done this so no one seemed to mind.  I really need to remember to take pictures of the ladies layouts before they leave for the night.  It is such fun seeing how they make changes and what they come up with!

My layout was made using some pictures from back in 2007 when we did a trip back home to Oklahoma and attended the TU Homecoming Game with my in-laws.  I still need to include some journaling and will probably still add a few more embellishments.

Made using Tommy papers, Urban Alphabet stamp set, Outdoor Denim baker's twine, Durables Stud - Square, Outdoor Denim, Honey and Colonial White cardstock, Outdoor Denim ink.

This is another way the layout could be used by flipping over the striped paper to the nautical side.  I have the Tommy Complements Canvas Shapes on order and plan on finishing up this layout soon.

Made using Tommy papers, Outdoor Denim, Honey and Colonial White cardstock.

Next is a card I made a week or so back using the February 2013 Stamp of the Month - Home Sweet Home stamp set.  I made it with a friend of mine in mind that I knew would be moving very soon into a new home.  She attends my monthly class, so I had to tell her not to look when I showed it to the ladies.  

Made using Tommy papers, Feb 2013 SOTM - Home Sweet Home stamp set, Opaque Adhesive Gems - Pearl, Honey, Outdoor Denim, Desert Sand and White Daisy cardstock, Outdoor Denim ink.

And finally this is the card that the ladies got to make at class.  It was inspired by fellow Consultant Pam Jarrett.  She made this quilt card using Later Sk8tr papers and shared her instructions with us.  I had not tackled making a quilt card before and thought it would be so difficult until I read her instructions and tried it.  It was surprisingly easy!

Made using Tommy papers, Tommy WOTG kit stamp set, Outdoor Denim and White Daisy cardstock, Outdoor Denim ink.

Until my next post, happy crafting!
