Look What I Made!!!!!!!!!

I was looking through my alterables for something to hold all my colored pencils and watercolor pencils and I found this. I took an old dryel container (it's cardboard) and decoupaged it with DP from Hobby Lobby. I then used PTI's Beautiful Blooms and an alphabet (co. unknown) on Chocolate Chip and Pink Paper. Inks used were Versamagic: Petunia Pink Gingerbread, Brilliance Pink and Versamark. I used redline tape to adhere everything together. I hot glued a divider made of cardboard to make two chambers, one for my regular CP and the other for watercolors and Voila!!!

Celebrate Your Inner Princess

I just LOVE this stamp but I don't know of anyone getting married any time soon so when I was looking through my stamp collection and happened upon this set I pulled it out to play with it. I was trying to think of a different way to use this stamp. Ideas I came up with are... Quincinera (if your hispanic you know,if not it's a celebration of a young womans 15th birthday) or sweet sixteen card. Anyway I don't know too many 15 year old Quincinera celebrants so I thought why not a birthday card. It's a princess dress!! Somewhere I saw the phrase Celebrate Your Inner Princess. PERFECT for this card! I keep a pencil and post it note stack next to my computer and if I see a cute or catchy phrase I write it down. I can't afford all the sets with all the FAB saying to I write down the ones that I love and then type them into a Microsoft Word document where I am able to change size, font and even color and I punch them out with my slot punch or various other punches or dies. The slot punch tag above is just one of these.

Tote for Cards

This is the tote for the cards below. One photo is of the tote empty the other of the tote filled with the cards and envelopes. The link is below for this totes tutorial. Leslie Rich is uber talented and generous with her FAB ideas.

Lil Notebook

This idea has been floating around SCS for a while but I wasn't sure where to go to get these cut. My friend Dawn(her blog is in my Blogs I Stalk list) was having hers cut at Staples, but, as we have no staples near to us this was a problem for me. I recently found out at SCS that Office Depot will cut these notebooks for you. These are the regular memo sized notebooks cut in half. Perfect for a grocery list or to jot down a little note. I am putting together gift bags with the notebook, chocolate and post-it holder and pen as gifts for my sons teachers for V-Day. Keep watching for photos.

Here's the Recipie:
Stamps: Billboardabella
Inks: SU! Chocolate Chip,
Cardstock: Hobby Lobby
DP: Making Memories
Accessories: Nestabilities, Primas, Martha Stewart Glitter,
Mike's $1 Ribbon, Prismacolor Colored Pencils,
