It's WOYWW#189 time! The world wide blog hop that starts Here: http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ on Julia Dunnits terrific blog! Grab a cuppa and join in!
Today I have been busy getting ready for a swap on Saturday, the regular crew of stamping friends, this time we are getting together to swap card kits and make kits for troops. I enjoyed making that trifold card so much earlier, I decided to make 15 kits of these for the swap and another 20 for my card stash.
For the card Kits I will bring and assortment of saying and images along with coordinating ink pads. For my stash I will file them and then pull them as they are needed and use the appropriate sentiments/images. With having the bases made I can personalize the cards very quickly.
This batch required a lot of cutting and scoring and folding, but I really like the results! I started this earlier in the day
It must have been overwhelming for my staff:
Tink just couldn't take it any more.
After all that cutting I decided to get my solid colored card stock under control:
I went through my solid and put them all in this file folder. I will only keep what fits in this folder, the rest go in a big box that goes to another stamping friend for her use . Designer prints go in this :
and that gets emptied about every six months, if I haven't used it in that time, I'm not going to and those scraps go to the same friend. I do however use most my scraps, I make a LOT of cards!
The last project that I am still working on is transfering this years information onto a new calander, I am trying to combine books of brithdays and anniverseries onto a calendar.
I couldn't help but sigh when I saw the next months photo, Palm Trees and Ocean!! I would love to be there!! Out side it is starting to snow and then I will be shoveling with Steve
But is is good, I will come into a warm and happy home and that is better by far than palm trees and oceans, of course being there with Steve kicking sand would be nice too! Contentment is a great thing, it turns the everyday into it's own form heaven here on earth.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week!
