Got my organization hat on...

Hi gang!  

Continuing on with our month long cross promo with Just For Fun Stamps. 

I know we all have a lot going on this time of year, so I am keeping my post short and sweet.  

I know most of us say this every December and January, at least I sure do... "I am going to get this stuff cleaned up!"  So, I have decided to REALLY get that craft room organized!  Stop your laughing!!!  

I am starting by putting my Just For Fun Stamps to work for me in getting this done.  I decided to utilize several identical bins for wrangling my most often used supplies.  I bought brightly colored turquoise bins at the Dollar Store.  They even have little built in handles, perfect for hanging a tag from.  So, that is where the JFF stamps come in.  I have two stamps that are just perfect for stringing with matching ribbon and using to labeling my bins.  I am using the Notebook Scrap and Old Medicine Bottle.  You can find the stamps here and here.




 

I chose cute and convenient matching papers from Glitz.  You can see all the choices here.  The great thing is there are two of every style in one 6x6 pack and they all coordinate lovely!    

Now, to make about 10 more and get them on those bins. 

Best Wishes for a safe and Happy New Year!!!

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.


YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.


# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
