Craft Paper Organization

I'm so happy to let you know...


We love the snow!!

Just for a little bit of trivia...
On this day last year, it was also the first day it snowed for the season.

That's not why I wanted to post today, though. I want to share with you an organizational idea for your 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock. I've tried different things in the past. I think this is the best way for me. Maybe it will be for you too.

This is the cart from IKEA. I also have a cart from Michael's (the Recollections brand), but it is NOT wide enough to store your cardstock this way. The file folders have labels with the Stampin' Up cardstock name and a letter in the bottom left hand corner for the Color Collection it's in. If it's In Color cardstock, then the dates are there instead of a letter.

I have to say... I am really digging this.
Give it a try. 

Enjoy your day!

CAS Thank You Card

Happy Saturday, everyone!
We woke up this morning to about 14 degrees F with a light dusting of snow. We love the snow. Can't wait for it cover everything in a white blanket of beauty.

Today's card is a CAS (Clean and Simple) one made especially for CAS Colours & Sketches. I thought I'd throw in my application for the Design Team. Doesn't hurt to try, right? They have color challenges and sketch challenges that alternate every other week. Color Challenges are usually a little challenging for me, but thankfully this blog uses the Stampin' Up color names (although you can use any company's product as long as you match the colors as best you can.) Since I have all the Stampin' Up colors, that has taken a lot of work out of it for me. And you all know how much I love to use sketches!!

The current color challenge is....

Here's my card....
I've been itching to use this new stamp set. This card was easy and fun. 
You can make it too!

Whisper White cardstock for card base and image mat.
Night of Navy matting layer.
Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere image mat to card base.
Painted Harvest stamp set (love!)

{By the way, that Flirty Flamingo almost looks orange stamped on top of the Lemon Lime Twist. I promise it really is Flirty Flamingo though. You can see it around the edges where it didn't land on top of the green.}

This stamp set can be used for two-step stamping.
The flower and the leaves were both stamped twice with different stamps that coordinate for layering, and in different colors.

If you'd like to do some shopping, here are some easy links that will take you directly to the product in the store. Don't forget to use the current Host Code (at bottom of post).

Enjoy your day, everyone! It's going to be glorious!
