Organized People Desktop Decor

I have another entry for the Art Impressions Desk Decor challenge today.  My craft room has a lot of "zebra accents."  I decided to do my supply organizing box with zebra patterned paper and pink cardstock.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the six compartment box.  There are three tall compartments with three shorter ones in front of the tall ones.  The pattern I used can be found at the Silhouette Design Store and is called Desk Organizer by Lori Whitlock.  I used my favorite stamp company Art Impressions (since I love funny images).  Golden Oldies Blanche image was used and can be found here.  I colored the image with Copic markers and trimmed with scissors.  I computer generated the sentiment on pink cardstock.  

I have a "thing" for pretty scissors and thought this would be a good organizer for them.  I also needed a better way to organize glues instead of them rolling around haphazardly in my desk drawer.  Since it is summer and I'm spending all my free time at the pool, I thought "Blanche" was perfect for my desktop box.  This design just makes me happy and is going to be quite handy.  :)  Thanks for stopping by and as always stay crafty!  (AND get organized....you'll have more pool time!!!!)  ;)

Sticky Note Holder

The current Art Impressions challenge is calling for "Desktop Decor."  I decided I would make a sticky note holder.  I used a Silhouette Design Store pattern for the sticky note holder base (with pen holder).  Some of my favorite stamps are Goldie Oldies by Art Impressions.  I LOVE putting funny sentiments with them.  :)  This image is "Sound Off Jean."  For the "make notes," I used Sizzix Tim Holtz typewriter alphabet dies.  For the funny sentiment, I used a typewriter font on my laptop and printed it out on white cardstock.

This will be handy on the desk in my craft room for taking notes.  I'm at the age I will forget something unless I write it down.  (Wink.)  Jean is going to be sounding off at these challenges:

Foil Quill Wedding Card

My daughter ask me to create a card for her college dorm roommate who is getting married soon.  After several weeks without rain in our area, we are having a rainy day.  Rainy days mean crafty days (if I'm lucky) and I headed to my craft room after lunch to do a wedding card.  I used my We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill to do the large image with a gold foil.  I used the Standard Foil Quill tip.  The image is by Lori Whitlock and called Sketch Wedding Couple (I bought mine at the Silhouette Design Store.)  The stamped sentiment is from a wedding set by Inkadinkado.  It is prettier in person than in my photo (I can never get foiling to show up well).  This happy couple is going to be joining these fun challenges:

Foiled Text Christmas Card

I have new toys to foil with!  I recently got a laser printer (this is the one I got) and a laminating machine (this is the one I got).  FUN!  This is my first try at foiling using them.  I foiled the "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" with green foil (this is the foil I used) on ivory cardstock.  The patterned paper was one in my stash (by October Afternoon) and the embossing folder is one by Sizzix.  I found the green jewels at Family Dollar Store (good score)!  :)  I did this card for the "Text Me" challenge at Jingle Belles.

Growing Up Birthday Card

Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather in your neck of the woods.  It has already gotten HOT here.....and you know what you do when it turns hot?  Well, besides hanging out at the pool, you go to your craft room and make a card.  ;)  When you think of silhouette images, black is always the color which comes to my mind.  I thought it would be fun to do a different colored silhouette image.  I used a small patterned paper print to cut out these Spellbinder die children.  I cut it out again in lime green and did a "shadow" behind them.  These birthday loving kids are joining these challenges:

Catpuccinos Birthday Card

I had a new stamp set begging me to ink it so I was happy to comply.  ;)  It is by Art Impressions and is Cat Mouthful Set (found here).   I was tickled to see the current theme for AI's Challenge is "Furry Friends" because this party loving cat is FURRY!  :)  This party cat is linking up at:

Mod Squad Challenge (Tea or Coffee)

Hope your week is going great.  I've been outside working in our back yard cleaning patio concrete.  Hot and dirty work but now I'm ready to plant more flowers!  I want to get Pentas and Lantana because of  full sun back there. I need flowering plants which love heat and lots of sun.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty!  :)

Birthday Friend Card

I'm still working on building my birthday card stash back up.  Birthday cards are just about my favorite kind of card to make.  They celebrate a happy occassion and who doesn't like presents and cake?  Wink.  (We won't even discuss being another year older....but that just means you made another trip around the sun.)  :)  I used a stamp set by Unity Stamp Company called Maggie girl (it's your birthday).  I colored the image with Copic markers.  My birthday girl is going to be partying at:
