Let's get organized

Good morning everyone I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I haven’t done any stamping yet, but I did spend some time today getting my 95 DRS designs stamps organized. I bought some Lightweight-Storage-Panels from DRS designs for only $6.50 for a package of 5 sheets. And they fit right into a 3 ring binder. I thought that I would share with you how I went about getting my stamps organized.

Step One: Call a friend, I called my stamping friend Lynn and she came over to help, makes everything a lot more fun.

Step Two: We sorted the stamps into groups, Christmas, winter, Trees, you get the ideal. The great thing about these panels is you can put stamps on both sides.

Step Three: We layed the stamps on the panel. Then we made a index sheet with the stamps the same way they were on the panel. I placed these in sheet protectors opposite the stamps. This way I can read all the stamps, and see the looks of the image. And I will always know if a Stamp is missing.

I have lots of room to add more stamps. They can be rearranged easely and the notebook fits on a shelf. I used 2 packages and some page only have a few stamp with lots of room for more.

Next I will be organizing my paper.

Have a great day,

Merry Christmas on Ice

Merry Christmas, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day with family and friends.

I have a fun little card to share with you to day, these cute little Ice Skates 373h. After stamping and coloring them I used my spellbinder circle to cut it out them I sponged blue around the edge with it still in the die. I layered it on a blue scallop circle. The Snowflake Scroll 875f was stamped and embossed with silver on a navy panel.

I hope Santa brought you everything you wished for and everyone is well and happy.

Filling the stockings

Good morning I thought I would share somethings that I made to go in everyone's stockings this year. I'm sure that you all seen the M&M sticks before but I think the grand kids will like them, I used a old  sizzix die for the snowflake. I made the body lotion and that is some good stuff really helps with winter dry skin, I think my girls will enjoy.

My 2011 christmas card

Good morning everyone, hope you had a great weekend. I have been so busy, shopping is almost done and the Christmas cards are in the mail. I thought that I would share my Christmas card with you today. I have a lot of people that save my cards and use them every year to decorate. To me this is a lot of presser to make a better card every year. I don’t even have one of all my cards from the past 20 years. So I do my cards little different from what I have read. In January I have my design all picked out, then I do them assembly line style. I do about 50 cards a year and by summer the main part of the card is finished, and by Thanksgiving they are addressed and in the envelops so they can go in to the mail by the first of December.

This year I did a easel card, the stamped that I used is KT Designs Online It was stamped in black ink. The background was airbrushed with copic markers then the snowmen were colored. I added a little glitter glue to the stars in the sky. And layered it on black card then navy card. I used the Martha Steward Icicle punch and punched a strip from white card that I added across the top. I used the Martha Steward snowflake punch then covered it with glitter.
I have intered this card in the Flourishes noon time challenge.

Merry Christmas,

Have a wonderful day,
