As you all know, I love to use crocheted flowers as embellishments on my cards...I am very excited to announce that I have decided to sell some of my crocheted flowers on my Etsy Store!
Matches PaperTrey Ink's Aqua Mist Cardstock:Ecru - matches Very Vanilla, but will coordinate with just about anything, especially kraft & brown colored papers as well as any DP that has creamy tones, vs. white tones - very versatile color!White - of course, it goes with about anything! They can also be died with re-inkers to create just about any color as well as airbrushed with Copics.Lastly, I wanted to show you how I organize my floss colors. I used the trusty list I got off of SCS and some Cropper Hopper ribbon cards. I cannot seem to find who makes this shape ribbon card anymore, but the Cropper Hopper ones are fine too.
I wrote the DMC floss # at the top left and the coordinating color in the middle. When I finish the floss, I know what color to re-purchase without having to look it up! The cards keep them from getting tangled up etc. I store them in rainbow order in SnapWare containers like these. I love these things for storing scrapping supplies. I used to crop every Friday night at my LSS and they were perfect for page planning. I store everything from versa mark ink pads, SU markers, Copics (for when I travel), bling, alcohol inks, etc. each in their own labeled bin. Then all I needed to do was snap the items together that I needed for that night and they were neat & tidy! I also have 12 x 12 SnapWare containers that store my SU stamps. I used to use them for chipboard, MM paints, Glimmer Mist and other larger embellishments when I cropped mobily. Now, I pretty much do my cards at home, but things are still so easy to find in my office because of my organization.
Here is a close-up of how I mark each ribbon card:Have a wonderful Sunday! I will be back this week with some new PCS Digi Valentine images as well as some other deliciousness! Thanks for stoppin' in! Gotta go stir my pot of chicken & sausage gumbo I am making! ~Tori
