Washi Friday & Storage Ideas

We have Washi Tape ideas for this week's Fabulous Friday post over at the Sisters in Stamping blog. We have all posted storage ideas on our blogs too, so you'll have to stop by and check them out. Here is my card for this week--
I put 3 rows of washi tape on a white scrap of paper, cut it out and then paper pieced it in for the sleeve on my "to go" cup. Here is a close up picture of it.

This is how I've been storing my washi tape. It is a glass straw holder that I purchased at the box store. Jury is still out on the idea, I'll have to let you know how the trial run goes.

Thank-you as always for coming by today!

Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

It's Friday Again!

I can't believe that it's time for another Fabulous Friday already! The weeks are just whizzing by at a break neck speed. It's Debbie's turn over at the Sisters in Stamping blog and we are making Fall themed projects. Here is mine for this week--

I used the NEW 1 1/4" Burlap ribbon (Item #132140, $7.95) from the 2013 Holiday Mini Catalog to make my roses. To make the rose I made a knot in the end of the ribbon and then twisted the ribbon around the knot. Once I had it to the size I wanted, I squeezed a puddle of hot glued onto the middle of the Silicon Craft Sheet (Item#127853, $5.95) and set the rose into it...making sure that the rough ends were in the hot glue. 

Here is a close up picture of the ribbon roses.
Thank-you for coming by today, see you next week for some Washi Tape ideas.
Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

I'm So Grateful

You know that the Sisters in Stamping take turns every week picking themes for the Fabulous Friday post, right? Well, this week is Rachel's turn and she picked the New Clear Photopolymer sets to focus on. Here is my card--
I used the Designer Type Alphabet set. I really love all of the arrows that are in the set, it's jammed packed with all sorts of images: banners, scrolls, letters, numbers and more! 57 pieces total in all, a fantastic deal for $13.95, Item #132956. I paper pieced the large arrow in all of the colors that are in the Gingham Garden Washi Tape, $4.95, Item #129314 (Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzaz). The oval in the center is from the new set called Chalk Talk, it's in the 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog.
Oh, and I'm So Grateful for you! Thank-you for stopping by this week.
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

A Masculine Friday

Masculine cards....they are tricky! You don't want to be too frilly with ribbons and bows or flowers and such. Exactly why you should let the Sisters in Stamping help you out with some Guy cards today. Here is my card for today's Fabulous Friday post--

I used the stamp set called The Open Sea to make my manly Birthday card.

Here is a shot of the front of the card showing the new background stamp World Map.

I used the frosting part of the cupcake punch and sponge to create my clouds.


Here is a close up picture of the cloud design in the back ground, very whimsical addition to the card.

Thank-you again for stopping by, see you next week!
