Stickles Storage

This is the top tray of a craft/tool box that used to have all my Stickles and alcohol inks tossed into it.  Frustration plus!! This is my new solution - YAY!! It's made of 3/4" PVC coupling. They came in packages of 10 for about $2.50 at Lowes.  I glued them in sections of 8 or 10 so I could move/manage them easier and it works like a charm!! I did put a piece of chipboard in the bottom of the tray, just in case anything leaked or dripped :-)

New Brads and ribbons

When I was younger, I bought new earrings for a cheap thrill :-). Now, it's these cute brads, eyelets and ribbons!! They are so stinkin' cute, many match my Close To My Heart paper sets and they are pretty inexpensive!! And it only took 2 days for free delivery!
     This time I NEEDED the little yellow bumblebees.  This is what I got:
Sometimes, I clip the pokey part off the back of the brads and just adhere them with adhesive - works just fine!

Yay!! Club Create for July!!!!


Hi!  'Sorry to have skipped the June gathering, the whole month of Sundays was just too full for me- but it was all good stuff:-) I hope you are having a great summer and are ready for a little creativity. 
     Next Sunday, July 20th, I would love to teach you how to make this shutter card (see attached:-) and have a little show and tell too. You will have choices regarding the paper, stamps, embellishments you want to use once we make the style of the card!  We will start at 1:00 at my house.
       The cost is $5 but if you place an order with me for Close To My Heart products, there is no cost for the class!  This is the last chance to order from the Spring Idea Book and I'll have a sneak peek at the totally new patterned paper sets and lots of new product from the new Inspirations!!
  When you place an order with me- either at the class or an order placed before the end of July, I will give you a stamp set FREE ( a value up to $17.85)
Also, when you order $50 of product,  you can purchase the July stamp of the month, which is one of my all time favorites!! And payment is due upon delivery not when you order!!
    Please let me know if the 20th works for you so I can prepare well - oh yeah, did I mention that we'll have beverages and snacks?!! I know you will LOVE your new card!!
                      'see you soon!
