How I Store My Stamp Sets

I had to update how I store my stamp set.  I watched a Jennifer McGuire video and I like what she did so I will show you my twist on it.  I am going to down size my craft area and I will do a video of before and after but it is going to take awhile to get it all done.

You can see my room now here well this is half of it and I will show you the other half in my before video.  I will make that video soon.

Falling For You Workshop Your Way

I love the Workshops Your Way kits they are so versatile and you get lots of things that coordinate with the paper.  Whether you are doing scrapbooking, cardmaking, or papercrafting it all goes together.  
I makes it easy to put your crafts together, when all the papers and embellishments go.  You just need your ink and stamps and you are ready to create!
This is the Falling For You WYW kit G1139
Here are just a few things you can do with this kit.   This is just one layout.
 Here a couple of cards
 This is another layout
Here is a feature page that you can frame and set out

Another card.

What a cute gift this would make or even a place card holder

This one uses the PLM (picture my life cards) that come in the kit you will get 2 pages of them that you can cut apart and use to tell your story.

Here is another layout you could do.  So many choices!
 Love these cards!  Like I said you can do so much with this kit and the choices are all yours.

Graphic 45 Mon Amore Mini Album walk through

Here is my Graphic 45 Mon Amore Mini Album.  It's 8" x 7" x 3 1/2".  I used CTMH Kraft paper to cover the book and make the pages.  I love this paper set.  I used 1 12x12 pack, 1 8x8 pattern and solids to make the book.  I have so much fun making these. I also used Kathy Orta King's hidden hinge plus system.  Check her out on youtube.

Love our New Color Pallet

Of course we will always have Black and White Daisy and don't forget about our color of the year Bashful.

You can see them all here!

Prickly Pear Folio

Just made another cute Folio form Country Craft Creations.  I used the Prickly Pear Workshop Your Way G1128 to make it and used the Prickly Pear Complements X7221c that come in the pack and Prickly Pear Sequins Z3324 to decorate the Folio.

I can't believe how versatile this pack is.  I love all the colors that it has.  You can use the more muted colors or the vibrant ones for different looks.  I just used them all and I love how it turned out.

It starts out with a 6" x10" piece of cardstock.  I choose Poppy then you score at 3 1/2, 4, 7 1/2, 8.
Cut your mats at 3 3/8 x 5 7/8 and 1 7/8 x 5 7/8.  I used the zip strips that I cut off of the paper to trim the spines inside and out.  I corner rounded the outside edges. You will need to trim them down 3/8 x 5 7/8

I used magnets for the closure.  I used the small ones

The pockets are 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 and scored at 1/4" on 3 sides.  You might have to play with this a bit to make it work. The mat is 1 7/8 x 2 1/8.  The bookmark that goes inside is 1 5/8 x 5 1/2.

The center pocket is 4 3/8 x 3 1/2 score at 1/2" on 3 side.  The mat is 3 1/4 x 2 7/8

The pages are 7 x 5 3/4 you will need 5 of them scored at 3 1/2

You will need to cut 5 tags at 3 x 5

I used Paradise Assortment Bakers Twine from my stash.  The colors when perfect with papers.  It has 4 different colors so I used them all and one of them twice.  You can see what I used here.

I lined up the folded edge to the eyelet and marked them both.  I then poked a hole for the Bakers Twine

I made a pocket for the inside of the cover, punched it with the scallop punch and glued the 3 sides down to the cover.   I glued a couple of the pages together at the bottom only.  Folded over the top corner and inserted one of the tags.

 Here you can see the each page in held in with the bakers twine.  You will pull all 5 of the twine through the eyelets.  Then tie the on the out side of folio

I use the cut apart page of the paper pack for embellishing my pockets and on for the front closure.

It was fun to decorate.

***Note to self:  If I make another one I will use 3 sets of the small magnets on the closure instead of just one.
