CTMH State Stamps

Another one of my favorite finds are the Close to My Heart State Stamps! I've been making cute, simple thank you notes with these great stamps. Love these 4x4 cards because they allow me to use up my scrap paper.

Prima Doll Stamps

WOW!! I can't believe it has been almost a year since I last blogged. Slightly embarrassing!! I'm going to pretend it my last post was yesterday :)

In the past year I have discovered Julie Nutting's Prima Dolls. They are by far my favorite new thing to play with. I love making tags and cards... and I even put together an ornament.

Here are a few creations!

Check out my fabulous Craigslist score! I got one of these paper displays for $20!!! They retail for $250 so I was beyond excited. I have already reorganized my paper stash using my new storage.

Purse Card Kits

I put together my first Make and Take for a retreat I attended earlier this month. 30 kits! The purse is a Circut cut from the Paisley cartridge. I cut the handle off and replaced with ribbon.

Scrap Layering

Another "Supplies on Hand" layout. This one is a spin off of Shimelle's scrap layering technique. I also used my favorite jellyfish stamp to make some patterned paper. And just to mix and match techniques even more, I used up a bunch of untouched letter J's to make a border.The picture itself is blurry, but I just loved the look of the lit up jellyfish and how excited my daughter was.

Supplies on Hand - Alphabets

I am taking May Flaum's new class called Supplies on Hand!I love classes like this because I don't have to spend any money on supplies -- it is all about learning new ways to use up my existing stash. The first day's lesson was all about Alphabets. If you are an Alpha hoarder like me, I highly suggest signing up for this class! I have already learned so many new tricks for what to do with those random X's and K's!

For this layout, I did something pretty simple. I didn't have enough of the same font stickers for the title so I used two different fonts in two shades of pink.

Scrap Storage

Here is a picture of my scrap system. I store each color in a 2.5 Gallon zip-top Hefty bag. Walmart has them for ~$3 for a box of 12. Then I keep the scrap bags in my Thirty-One medium utility tote. They fit perfectly and then I can carry them with me to scrap retreats. Sometimes I will go through the bags and clean out the smaller scraps and organize them by size.
