Crazy NEW Cool Crafting Organization

I am so excited to see the Workspace Wonders are AVAILABLE!!

Are you into organizing almost as much as paper crafting? I know I am!!

Here is the perfect organizers to help get your craft room ready!!

The paper trays hold 12"x12" paper, the large tray snaps two paper trays together (see the photo) or use the small tray to stack the paper trays in a single column.

Everything stacks into several various configurations.

What are you waiting for -- GO GET THEM BEFORE THEY RUN OUT -- BUT remember, they will be back quickly.

I LOVE to Share

Making cards and SENDING them is the FAVORITE part of my job. At the beginning of each month, I like to have a set of THANK YOU and BIRTHDAY cards ready to send. It helps me keep up and it is FUN to make the cards knowing they are going to make someone SMILE.

For October, I am using the Just Saying Workshop Your Way card kit (a part of the Swan Lake collection) as my inspiration.

The kit comes with a stamp set with two images, Thank You and Happy Birthday. As well as three different borders and a base and shade heart image.

A lovely stamp addition for card makers.

I added a little note to the inside and back of the envelope using the True Love (D1711) stamp set.

The Just Saying Workshop Your Way card kit contains everything you need to make TEN cards, five of two designs ALL for only $19.95!

Kit includes card bases and envelopes, B&T paper, cardstock, embellishments, and a STAMP SET.

Heart2Heart Perfect Ten

It is time for another Heart2Heart challenge and this week our theme is Perfect Ten. After playing with this month's Stamp of the Month, Yuletide Joy, and gold and silver embossing powder, it came to me. The 10 colors of the Enchantment palette makes the perfect backdrop to gold and silver embossing powders and the perfect choice for Perfect Ten.

Using each of the four Yuletide Joy images and the Noel sentiment, it was a faster, simpler, easier, Christmas card making session.

It was FUN using a variety of colors to create these Christmas cards.

You could use silver foil tape, as I did here or glitter paper to mat. Gives the cards an elegant look.

Now hop over to the Heart2Heart challenge blog and join in.
