Love Notes (Pink Paislee)

I enjoy leaving little notes or treats for my family to remind them through their day that I am thinking of them!  Today I am sharing with you a love note project I made for my son.  As we all do, sometimes he needs to be reminded why he is so amazing and this little box  is meant to do just that.

If you have not seen the new Pen Pals Collection  from Pink Paislee, your going to love it!  I used Pen Pals for this project because it has some adorably sweet sentiments.  I used this floral double sided paper and a digital cut file on my cameo to cut out this 3x4 hinge top box.  Double sided paper is perfect for a project like this, the inside of your box is just as awesome as the outside with no additional work.

I placed 5 little note cards inside the box, each with its own special note as to what makes my son so awesome!  I added some embellishments such as numbers and sentiments to the note cards but left plenty of room to hand write my note.

Creative Space > Part 2

I am happy to be back today to share the second part of my Creative Space ideas and organizing.  If you missed Creative Space Part 1 you can find it here.

This part of my craft room is my computer / cameo / sewing area.  I love my Mac!  It's not only awesome to use with my cameo but I love to watch Netflix on it while I craft.  It is also easy to slide behind my cameo when I need to use the surface for sewing. 

The all is a work in progress.  I am still looking for a few more artworks that are just meant for that spot! 

The 3 tier cubes are a recent purchase from Walmart and have proved to be a perfect addition to my room! I use the canvas cubes for storing my fabric and odds and ends.

I also keep all my cameo supplies and accessories close by!

To go along with my sewing area I have this cart to keep all of my threads, rotary cutter, rulers and so many other things in order.  This cart is a hair dresser cart bought from a Sally's Beauty Supply Store - who would have thought!

I have a second cart that is similar to my sewing one but this one is over by my craft table and is used to store all of my punches!  Its perfect for keeping them sorted by shapes and style.

Thanks for take a look!  I hope you may find some inspiration for organizing your craft space!

Good Times (Scrapbook Circle)

I am excited to share a new layout today with the April Kit, Bucket List from Scrapbook Circle!  There is so much I love about this kit but I think the rich colors are my favorite - there is lots of the As You Wish Collection From Fancy Pants in this kit!

SC April Anything Layout 1

I was drawn to this wood plank paper for a background and then I just loved that any pop of color worked well against it!  I did soften the back ground with white paint and then started layering papers and embellishments. This is a group photo of my son's recent birthday - Good Times!

Card Lovin' (Scrapbook Circle)

I am stepping out of my comfort zone today but I am ready to do that because I have an amazing kit to guide my creativity!   Have you seen Bucket List kit and the Things To Do Add On from Scrapbook Circle? I am so inspired by these amazing collections that I am going to showcase some cards today! 

SC April Card 1

I used a kraft card for both of my cards but different sizes. I started both cards off with cards from the Fancy Pants As You Wish Brag Cards in the Things To Do Add On, they made a perfect starting point.  Then I sorted through the Fancy Pants As You Wish Ephemera and found so many perfect pieces to use on these cards.

SC April Card 2

I applied specific embellishments with pop dots to make them stand out and add dimension to the card. 

Maybe you will look at your next Scrapbook Circle kit and be inspired to create a few cards too!
