So many more uses!

The Close to My Heart Acrylix Organizer, on pg. 99 of the Winter 2009 catalog. (z1038) is meant to store the acrylix stamp sets.  Well, my friend Kathy wanted to know if the emboss folders would fit!  They do! here's a pic of 48 cuttlebug A2 emboss folders ( i put some standing up and on their sides to show how they can fit either way!), 49 small emboss folders, 7 old sizzix embosslits and 15 tall border cuttlebug emboss folders.  As you can see they fit great with room.  Though because of its depth, I have to say i don't like the little emboss folders in there.  There is two dividers in the box too, so it will help from them sliding forward.  I have a few other nifty ideas for the box too, which once i get them decorated i will post.  So watch for those too!

lot's Happening over the next month or so!  I've found my Mojo and going with it while it lasts!!

CTMH Ms. Holiday Cheer card

i've been trying to come up with a card for my NY ladies stamps (thats what i call them) they are actually Ms. holiday Cheer. I used my CTMH inks and blending bend to color in everything. The background is kinda yucky. I also used red stickles on her dress and white stickles on the hat and adhesive backed pearls for the pom pom on her hat and around the corners. I also, used them on the tree after i dyed them with cranberry alcohol inks . even with the alcohol inks the pearlyness is still there!! The backgreen paper is from back country and the pink is from Bella. And just plain old pink grossgrain ribbon.

My Christmas Countdown calendar

Yes, I'm thinking Christmas already! This is a 6x9 Clipboard. I painted it red and edged it with white. I'm still working on the number cards. i think i have the right size now, but do you think i remember what size i cut them at NO! I'm still playing with the combination of numbers so theres an even # of cards but dont want 24. Once i get that figured out I'm going to laminate them so they don't wear out and can be used year after year. I plan on making quite a few to sell either at a fair or on-line. I'm going to do different designs, i'll post when i get them done.
