Organization Tip on Floss Storage

Hi All,

I’ve been working away at reorganizing my craft room and destashing some items. Things are looking pretty awesome but along the way I found that I needed to get a little resourceful on the way I was organizing some items. When it comes to ribbon, threads or yarns in a craftroom it is so easy for me to have a big ‘ol tangled mess of fibers. To clean up this area in my craftroom I grabbed just 2 simple supplies and it is by far one of my favorite storage solutions now!

Here’s what I used:
Clear rubber bands
Traditional wooden clothes pin
Clear Jar

Here’s a quick look at how quickly this storage solution comes together.

Doily Banner Notecards

Hi all,

It’s no secret that in the craft world everyday items become the foundation to create something new. Today, I’m taking fancy lace like papers we use to dress our desserts to create a set of notecards. Now, I didn’t actually use the paper version for a doily, but rather a set of images from a stamp set. A while back I purchased a couple of gorgeous stamp sets from My Minds Eye that included a couple of doily images that I thought would make the perfect foundation for a set of notecards. When I purchased these sets, I immediately knew how I wanted to purpose those specific stamps.

I used my favorite blank onyx ink and stamped the doily images as the foundation for the cards. Next, I layered on dimensional die-cuts of another set of doilies. Yes, doilys on top of doilys. Too busy? Absolutely not. By keeping the base black and neutral, the die-cuts are grounded to something – otherwise they’d just look like they are ‘floating’ in the middle of the page.

Next, I used a woodgrain banner stamp and grabbed a few of my favorite spring ink colors from Hero Arts. The key was to not add too much color. Keep it simple.

To finish off the cards I added some details (stripes, borders, and a few extra woodgrain lines) using a black gel pen.

I love that these cards are so simple but have multiple layered images to create a beautiful visual impact.

DIY Room Decor – Fabric Heart Garland (Part 2)

Hello all,

I’m back with a continuation to my post about creating heart garlands. I’ve been experimenting with other fabric designs and am absolutely amazed with how each one turned out. I especially love the bright colors hanging on the jute twine. There’s something so “anthropologie” about it (yes, I love most decor from that store)!

Another way to use these dies is to cut felt instead of fabric. I think felt would be just as pretty but would give a completely different vibe.

Take a look at these combos and tell me which one is your favorite. I’d love to hear from you.

Stripes with florals – swoon!

Love the corals and teals mixed with pea green and rustic orange!

Polka dots and twine anyone?

I love that craft supplies can be so versatile and don’t always have to be used with just paper or be confined to envelopes and books. Try searching through your supplies and double-purposing an item ~ let your creative mind free!

Have a great day friends.

 

DIY Room Decor – Fabric Heart Garland

Hi all,
I’m here today to share a very quick and easy project for some extra pizzaz to a room. Nowadays, many craft stores and home decor stores carry small fabric squares. Typically they can be found in a bundle of coordinating colors and designs. I happened to have a set and thought it’d put it to use but keep in mind that really any type of fabric works, and if you don’t have fabric – try felt!

Here’s a quick video on how I created this beauty.
