One of my Favorites

These Birthday Card Organizers have been a long time favorite project for me! They are super easy to make if you have a Bind-it-All or a Cinch machine. You just pick about 10 sheets of coordinating papers and with a few simple folds and your printer you can create these beautiful books!

For this one I chose to use some of Stampin' Up!'s retired Night and Day patterned paper. It is still available though and for only $4.79 while supplies last!!

I just love to see how all the coordinating papers look when it's all put together!

At the back I usually add an extra page for Anniversary and Sympathy cards to go into. Those are always good to have on hand. These adorable dies are from Clear Dollar Stamps and work perfectly for these organizers.

Hope you like this project, if you'd like me to make a class on this let me know and I'll schedule something for September or October (ya know, after school has started!!) ;) If you're not local and you'd like one of these I sell them in my Etsy store as well!

Thanks for checking in with me today! God's blessings to you today!

TE August Blast From The Past Blog Hop ~ Collectors Annonymous

So the theme for this months blog hop is 'Collectors Anonymous' and at first I wasn't sure what that really meant. But I found out that Taylor wanted us to use things that we normally stash away and hoard because they are too pretty to use or we don't want to waste them or that sort of thing. So that made me really have to think. What do I hoard?

Well fortunately for me, I don't think I hoard much. (I wonder if my friends might say different of me?) But I am one of those truly lucky women who has a craft space of my own and I can pretty much craft/play at any given moment (yes, my house is generally a mess). So anyway, my point is I get to USE all my stuff!

However, I do think I hoard one thing...kits! I am a sucker for kits! Like the TE Key Ingredients kits ~ if you ever want a cool kit (that comes to you in the mail ~ EVERY MONTH!!) the Key Ingredients kits are the ones to try. So many goodies and paper and ribbon and everything already coordinates for ya. Fun, fun, fun. So I think I do hoard kits, but then again I use those too. But I have to keep them in their cute little cases that they come in and keep everything together. ;)

Okay, so are you sick of reading my blog yet? Get on with it right?! Okay, okay, okay here is my first sample! And guess what? I used a TE Key Ingredients kit to make it! It's a kit from sometime last year, and look at the beautiful paper! ~ Yum!

These buttons and paper flowers are from my stash and actually I have been kinda hoarding the flowers lately. But not on purpose! ;) The sentiment stamp is from SU.

And here is my second sample. Actually I made this one first but then decided to change the background paper around (I always make two cards at a time ~ anyone else do that?) and then created the second/first card. ;) Just to confuse ya!

Everything on this card is from a TE Key Ingredients kit and the stamp and sentiment are from TE's Summer Afternoon stamp set.

Well I am really enjoying playing in this months blog hop, I hope you will continue on the hop and see everyone elses beautiful creations too!

Blessings to you today! You can always leave me some love in the form of a comment! ;)

Fabric Flower Pin Now for Sale in my Etsy Store

I am just falling in love with FABRIC!! And why wouldn't I? It's just like scrapbook paper! ;) I am having so much fun with my Big Shot and making these adorable flower broaches. So many fun options with them. I have been pinning them to my t-shirts, but they are also so cute on hats, handbags, purses, even gloves.

I have taught, I think, 5 classes on these now and they always make a big hit. Some girly girls in one class really liked making them into barrettes and attaching them on their headbands too. I have taught from 8 year olds to Red Hatter's to make these and they are fun for everyone!

So what could be better than to start selling them on my Etsy site as well? These make awesome and personal gifts and could be for just YOU too! ;)

If you're interested in a class let me know. Or just order one today!
