Ok so at Mike's the other day I found a new paint that I figured I would try and ohh my this impressed me. See some of the pictures of just a few items that I was playing with. Still have not really made a card or a layout yet. But working on it. I am enabling myself to get more colors.

Ok so today someone asked on the circut mb what trimmer everybody uses. Well I took a picture of the trimmers that I have. I like the rotary trimmer that I have for fiskars I ise it a lot. I am not fond of the 9" that is what I started out with and then got the 12" and then the rotary one.

Here is a thank you card that I made using the following items
Paper: Basic Grey Blush BLU-644 Eternity, Bazzill Brown color, Irradescent Vellum.
Cuttlebug embossing folder the french script?? I think that is what it is called (I realized these do not have names on them or if they do I am missing it. I used Jim Holtz Distress Ink in the color Tattered Rose and just used it on some cardstock that I had, I used the Design Runner in the Winnie Walls Disc for the Thank You which is cut out with the pink marvy scallopped square mega punch. I rubbed Diamond Glaze Glue on top of this and used AIG #210 Fossil which is transparent over it. I also used Prima Got Flowers a dark red from there and also used stickles Cinnamon color as the center of the prima flowers. I think that is it. TFL and enjoy.

So I have been trying to find a better way to store these instead of the original box that they came in. I realized that I had a Sterilite Shoe Container so I figured I might as well work with what I had. Currently I have 13 in this box. I made an card that is 7.125" wide x 3.75" high. I put these in alphabetical order. I have these in the middle of the container. On both sides I have my cartridges. I made a box which I had seen from a previous post that someone else had made. I cut a 2.5" x 2.5" piece of cardstock. Then I scored 1" from left side and 1" from left side then .375" from both the top and bottom I made a score line. I then snipped in on the top and bottom to used my therm-o-web Zots clear adhesive dots small to attach the pieces together. I am sure I could proabably get maybe 6 more cartridges in here however I would need to get rid of the books or somehow try to reduce the bulkness of the books. I am debating on taking out the foreign language from the books. Or I am thinking of printing up smaller parts so I can keep all in one box. TFL enjoy, take a look at the pictures. Hopefully someone else can also use this down the road.

Here are some cards that I made tonight. Card #1 I used My Minds Eye paper with some Crystal Stickles and a Studio G "Thank You Thank You Thank You" dollar stamp. Card #2 some purple ribbon some like half pearls and another one of the Studio G dollar stamp. Card #3 the dollar stamp again and some of the same Crystal Stickles. TFL-Enjoy.
I have a few ways that I store my ribbon. Some of the smaller ones I use in the Cropper Hopper Boxes and put inside a Cropper Hopper Embelishment Container. Which is also how I store my eyelets and brads. Some of the bigger ones like the "spool o ribbon" those I have in a Cropper Hopper Ribbon Storage. Then some of the bigger ones I have in a Iris Cart Drawer. Yes I eventualy only want to use the Cropper Hopper Boxes and Embelishment Container and the Cropper Hopper Ribbon Storage but right now I have to use a third. See some of the pictures to follow.
