More Paper Usage.....

Good morning friends!  It's Monday once again and the heat wave and drought continues here in East Tennessee.  We have another day scheduled to be in the 90's and then we are hoping for a bit of a cool down but still no rain in sight.  Leaves are beginning to fall but it's not with the glorious color we all long for as they are just turning brown and coming on down.

As I continue my quest to use some of my mountain of paper collections, it's another kleenex cover box! 

These little boxes are quick and easy and use a little bit of paper and I find I love making them.  This one is from a Heartfelt Creations collection retired long ago but still much loved by me!  The name of the collection is Raindrops on Roses and it was and is one of my favorites.  And of course I had to make a few roses to grace the top and side of the box.  My little neighbor friend has mauve colors in her living room and this will coordinate well.  I do hope she loves it!

I purchased a few more boxes of tissues and will be making a few more...maybe to send to the nursing home.

What's on Your Workdesk? Week #536....

Good morning my friends!  I'm showing you my work desk this morning as part of a little Wednesday get together of like minded crafters.  We take a photo of our desk and link it to Julia's desk then we can visit each other and have a look around!  It is a lovely idea and lots of fun and has lasted many years since the first WOYWW!  So come join us if you like, we are harmless and very friendly!

My photo was taken yesterday afternoon so there is lots of light reflecting off my glass mat but I do love all the natural light!  I've been working on some kleenex box covers for my neighbors.  Just another idea to use up some more paper.  I think it is breeding when I turn my back...instead of getting smaller the amount seems to be growing.  But I just keep plugging along trying to think of things to use it on.  Most of the papers have long been retired but there are some lovely designs that I have a hard time cutting into, so I take a deep breathe and try to remember that I don't want to be a "hoarder" then I make another project! 

That's it for me this morning; I'm off to visit as many of your desks as I can! Happy WOYWW!

So Much Paper.....So Little Time.....

Good morning friends and happy Monday!  I'm here this morning to share another box of cards I made for someone special.  For some reason I just didn't show the cards that I packed inside but I have been using card fronts from different Heartfelt Creations papers and just adding little embellishments and sometimes just glitter so that the cards can be mailed with a regular postage stamp.  When you consider that the card and envelope have to fit through a 1/4" slot with no snagging along the way, that doesn't leave much room for anything other than the card!  And we all know how much a dimensional card costs to mail.....well it's just crazy!

I made a box to hold the cards and decorated it with wildflowers made using the Tulips from the Tulip Time Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  One thing I love about Heartfelt creations is the fact you cab take one flower and change the shape to make another lovely creation.  These flowers remind me of something that would bloom in the desert!  I love the shape and they don't look like a tullip anymore for sure!

So you take some pretty paper, a few flowers and leaves and some lovely crinkled seam binding and tie it all up with a pretty bow and you have a beautiful gift for family or friends.  My goal is to use papers I have just sitting here.  Lots have already retired but are still beautiful and I want to use much little time!

WOYWW #535

Good morning friends!  Wednesday has once again rolled around and I'm here showing you my work space.  Each Wednesday we get together and converge on our leaders' blog for a world wide blog hop!  If you are curious about this just head over to Julia's blog and she has instructions for what to do to join us! We are a friendly group of crafters and we love sharing what we have going on in our lives!

Now for my desk and what my little mess looks like:

Underneath it all is my new Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat; I wasn't sure if I would be happy with it when I ordered it but I do love it!  The die is an old Sue Wilson Die that I have had for a couple of years and only used maybe a couple of times so I decided I needed to use what I have.  I'm making another shaker Christmas card.  I am slowly coming along on my list.  It seems like it is a slow go this year and I only have 5 or so ready to go.  Well I still have plenty of time so I will just keep plugging along.  The blue tray at the top of the photo is filled with poinsettia flowers of different colors and holly leaves all ready to go so that will help me as I work on my cards.

My card is 5 X 7 and all ready to go.  I used all Heartfelt Creations products except for the die cut.

Well my friends that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to join the blog hop and have a little snoop.  I hope you have a great day and a wonderful rest of the week!
