Ink Pad Storage

I have been doing some re-organizing in the craft room and figured out how to store my ink pads (for now...). I bought some small drawers from Wal-Mart, and cut some CS to fit in the front of each drawer telling me what color is in each drawer. I have a color book that I made (you can see it to the left of the drawers, it is similar to the Stamp Inventory one that I made) so it is easy to go to the "pink" page (for example), find the shade that I want and then pull it out of the pink drawer. Now, this setup may not work so well when Papertrey Ink releases their new ink-pads.... but it has been so much easier than my previous setup! I also have my blocks, stamp cleaner, positioning tool, re-inkers etc in here for now.

Billy's Bday Card

Another quick Papertrey Ink birthday card! This one is for my BIL Billy. When I saw the plane stamps and dies I knew I had to get it for his card (he just got his pilot's license this year)

Mom's Birthday card

I had to go with the "tea" theme of Mom's birthday gift that I posted about yesterday so I broke out Papertrey Ink's Tea for Two stamps and teapot die. I used a sheet of the new Damask Designs PP, and used the Damask stamp set, Versamark and clear embossing powder on the Summer Sunrise label, and also on the tea pot.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Friday was my Mom's birthday, and we gave her the best birthday present! My Mom has collected teacups for years... browsing Pinterest one day I found this pin, re-pinned it as an idea for Mom and Amanda (my little sis) agreed that it would be a great gift! I talked Mom out of some of her tea-cups, Amanda bought a few more and Billy and Amanda made it happen! I am the idea girl... Amanda executes... we make a perfect team!
This is Mom "unwrapping" her gift (it was covered with a table-cloth)

Billy and Amanda adding the hanging wire:
