Thanks


Nope....I am not done with the Kraft paper and butterfly creations. However, I did skip the American Crafts paper on this one. I used my DCWV textured papers on this card as I love the look of textured papers.

The white flower is made with DCWV chipboard that is pre-covered with the textured paper. I picked that up at Archiver's a long time ago. The "thanks" sentiment was made with white DCWV textured paper and cut with a Cuttlebug die from the Olivia alphabet. (I added the flower and and yellow brad to cover up a mistake...shhhhh....I accidentally tore the letter "s" when I ran it through the Xyron.) The yellow paper is DCWV textured note cards that I picked up at Mike's the other day. The note cards already come with the scalloped edge...which is a bonus in my book!


Here is a close up of my chipboard flower. I used my Small Monogram Stamper and Small Letter Set to create the sentiment and then I punched the butterfly with my Martha Stewart punch and added it to the center of the flower.

I spent part of my day organizing some more of my studio. I am telling you that book The Organized Scrapbooker is addicting...makes me want to clean my studio...what's up with that? Honeslty, I can say that since I started implementing some of the changes I am much more efficient as I know where to go immediately for the supplies rather than digging around in my piles. Oh, don't get me wrong...I still have piles but they are smaller and more organized too.

Anyway, I purchased 6 photo boxes at Jo's yesterday (on sale for $1.50) and I labeled each box for my cards. That way I can mail them to people instead of just keeping them! My new thought process is to get my cards sorted into these boxes and then actually mail them to people on the SCS Blogger RAK list. It's always nice to get a surprise in the mail....no? And it will give my girl's a nice project to do while I am at work tomorrow. Busy work for them means the less my house will be trashed while I am gone. LOL

Alright, off to make dinner and maybe scrapbook a page or two. Can't remember the last time I scarpbooked...so sad!

See ya on the blog!
