{Clean and Simple} CASology – Youth

Hello everyone!! It’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted anything. I’ve been so busy with Creativiation and traveling, I haven’t had time to create anything until now.    I’m so happy to be back. 

It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-234-youth

Take a look at my card:

your-a-blessing-cas

For this week’s cue card I used Kitty Bee Design Sleepy Love Bug digital stamp to create my card.

I colored the image using Tombow Recycled Colored Pencils. I love the way they blend.

Then I stamped the sentiment using a new stamp company called MSE! My Sentiments Exactly Handwritten Sentiments. I received this stamp set at Creativation in my registration bag.

Super simple and easy!

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Cut

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-232-cut

Take a look at my card:

let-it-snow-cas

For this week’s cue card I used STAMPlorations Let It Snow Die as my focal point. I die cut it out of Concord and 9th Happy Hue Note Cards three times.  Then I adhered them together.

Before adhering the die cut to the card front, I  added some snowflakes with Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow die and Ranger Ink Texture Paste.

Once the paste dried, the sentiment was adhered.

Try Something New – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  Happy New Year to all of you!!

I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! This is first challenge for 2017!! Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

try-something-new

Take a look at my card:

best-couple-wcmc9

For this challenge, the team was able to play with the new release that’s live right now.  I was played with the set called Best Banners Stamp Set!  I love everything about this set.

I wanted to keep my card clean and simple, so I stamped the four different banners at the top and bottom of the card. Then stamped the sentiment in the center. I stamped the heart and added glossy accents inside of it.  Once that dried, I added a couple of splatters for added interest.

Nice and easy.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

My Storage Solutions for 2017

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today sharing some of my storage solutions for 2017!!  I have so many new things I want to try and really put into practice for 2017.  The first being brush lettering.  I started in 2016 but wasn’t able to keep it up due to so many other things I had going on.  That didn’t stop me from collecting so many different brush pens.  I stored them in pencil case, drawers and other places that I couldn’t see them in plain site.

I needed a better and more practical storage solution for my markers.  Then I came across the Deflecto Stackable Cube Organizer “X” Divider.

These storage cubes are a super practical storage solution for any sets of pens, markers, crayons, pencils, paintbrushes, scissors or any item that you need to see while crafting.

Here’s why:

  • They have four different compartments!  The four compartments can hold different items such as different brands of brush markers.

  • They have an interlocking system! This system is perfect if you have more then one cube. It keeps the cubes together.

kt-stackable-interlocking

 

  • The container is clear so you can see what’s inside! This was the selling point for me.  I need to see my craft stash.  If I can’t see it, I do not remember that I have it.

kt-stackable-cube-x-divider-fits-all-markers

Totally awesome and doable for a practical storage solution!!

Do you remember my storage post back in October on the Deflecto’s blog?  I talked about the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer.  It goes perfect with these cubes!!

Sooooo, tell me what you think? Are you still looking for a way to store and organize your markers, pens, pencils, crayons, etc.? I hope I was able to help you make up your mind.

Deflecto products can be purchased at Scrapbooking.com, Amazon and Micheals!

Deflecto - Stackable X Divided Clear Storage Organizer - 6 x 6     Deflecto - Caddy Organizer with Small Medium and Large Compartments - White

{Clean and Simple} CASology 230 – Cold

Hello everyone and Happy New Year CASology Family!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-230-cold

Take a look at my card:

happy-winter-cas

For this week’s cue card I used the snowman and sentiment from the Rubber Dance Stamp Frosty Friends stamp set.  I picked up my Copic Markers again this week.  I actually miss using them so it was fun to play with them for this challenge.

I simple stamped the snowman and the sentiment using the Mini Misti for precision stamping. I love seeing crisp black edges so using the Misti is so important.

I colored the snowman with  BG0000,B000, C4,C6, R37,R39, R89, E37, Y38 and YR68.

Nice and easy!
