Yesterday, I had a tough time working on what I hoped would be Sunday’s video! It will now be Wednesday’s video. Briefly, it’s a fancy fold card, and I’ve changed the measurements from the video I saw this card on. The lady who made the video showed how to cut the layers, two of which are “U” shaped, and the way she did it was brilliant. My problem was that I had to re-do all the measurements! More about that, and the lady’s details next Wednesday. I promised I’d share my storage ideas from my shopping trip on Thursday. The first item is this three drawer Perspex unit which I found in the cosmetics department of Wilko. One of the things I like about see-through storage in my studio, it stops things being out of sight, out of mind! The bottle of Tombow is by the side to give you an idea of size. I have started filling the top drawer with die cuts, and stamped images I’ve produced but not used. The second drawer has the two cards I shared with you on Wednesday and Thursday. After I’ve posted my blog, I keep the featured cards in my studio for a couple of weeks for easy reference. Now that I have this unit, I know these cards will stay clean! In the bottom drawer are two Christmas cards that need attention before I can put them away until December. I’m now in with a good chance of dealing with them because I can see them, and remember them! Again, I know these cards will stay clean!
The second unit is a three pot make-up brush organiser, which I found on the same shelf as the drawer unit. In the middle sized pot are the tools I’m always reaching for! Now they’ll always be in arm’s reach! If I lose something, I’ll be able to see if it has fallen inside any of the pots. I hadn’t planned to show you the third item because I had bought them for keeping my hair bands organinsed! Yesterday I realised I could use them for storing rubber bands, and then hang the ring on the door handle! This was a pack of twelve shower curtain rings that had been reduced to 25 pence! The card I’m showing you today is the project for tomorrow’s video. I love how easy it is to use both pieces of cardstock/Designer Series Paper (DSP) that have been die cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. Earlier this week I shared a card with you where I had used this technique. I’m sure crafters will like to know how to do this because it reduces wastage. That’s about it from me today. I hope you have a great weekend, and I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting,
