Not that I’m a hoarder or anything (ok, maybe little)…. but I do tend to save things, including this fabulous collection of ribbon from Cactus Pink, which I’ve probably had, unopened for three years … or more. Enough, I say! Use it, I say! So I pulled out one package, determined to use as much as I could in one sitting.

Here’s a bunch of finished cards:

And a close up view of two:

All these cards, plus some others, will be sent to Operation Write Home to be sent to military personnel overseas.

Fun Storage

I love storage. I love little bitty containers and big boxes. I love metal tins and cardboard drawers and canvas bins. And if it’s something I can decorate, even better!

Check out this fun cardboard container from Karen Foster, with the tiny drawers and the blank white surface that just screams “DECORATE ME!”

First, I stamped a bevy of butterflies on the outside using a variety of butterfly stamps and mostly Ancient Page ink and some ColorBox chalk inks:

(I may cover up the butterflies later with paper.)

Then I added paper to the little drawers (using stock from Close To My Heart)

(The rub-on numbers came with the set.)

Now to fill them…..

Thanks for stopping by!
