Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Dora here...
Did you hear that I have earned a spot on the Signed, Sealed and Delivered Creative Woman Design Team. (We will call it CW for short). You will want to friend them on Facebook and check out their blog once and a while to see what we are creating. Our first monthly project is due the end of May so you should be seeing it in June. I don't think I am allowed to post my projects here, so make sure you check them out.

I am so excited for the challenges that lie ahead. It should help me stretch my creative box. :)

Glimmer Mist Organization

I have too many Glimmer Mists to fit in my previous organization. So today I purchased a rack to hang on my studio door.
The top shelf is my duplicate colors, Glaze and Chalkboard.
The second and third shelf is all mist, grouped by colors.
The fourth shelf is all the blue mist and the Glam.
The basket are all the brand new glimmer mist colors I have. I still need to label their lids. 

Below is a close up of how I label my bottles. I write the name on a label, mist it then stick it on top of the lid. 

Another thing I do so I know what colors I have is... I take a round coaster and place a screen on half of it. Then I mist it. I write the name on the back of the coaster and group the colors on rings. 
For the chalkboard, I used square coasters and a different screen to make them stand out from the rest. 
I painted lines of the Glam and Glaze on the square coasters.  I have a coaster for each color group (green, blue, brown, etc)

I purchase white ribbon, fibers and flowers now. Why buy colored when I have this many glimmer mists to color my own. 

I am addicted - but at least I use them and not collect them. :0) It takes a lot to empty a bottle and I have emptied a few.

Easter Layout

This past week I took an Easter layout class at SSD. We used Canvas Corp paper.

I used Orange Peel stickles to embellish the title, eggs and carrots. The "E" opens up to be a mini album to hold 3x3 pictures.
I pleated some orange ribbon across the bottom to add more texture. Some of the letters and the rabbit and the orange egg are on dimensionals.

This was a fun layout to do with great paper.
