Flirty Anya Birthday Card

Oh my gosh! Is she not the cutest! I had so much fun using Flirty Anya from The Greeting Farm. It’s my niece’s 19th birthday and  Flirty Anya reminded me so much of her when she was little. Ok so a lot of The Greeting Farm stamps remind me of her. She has grown up so fast (reaching for tissue).
For the background papers I used The Citrus Stack from DCWV. I love the colors in this paper pack. For the greeting I used Fiskars clear stamps All Year Greetings. I added some Recollections rhinestones and a cute pink heart button I had on hand. I also did a scallop edge on the pattern paper with a EK Success Edger punch.

Some readers have asked how I color my stamps and digi’s. I use Artist Loft colored pencils from Michael’s and also Prismacolor pencils. I blend it all in with odorless turpenoid which I get at Michael’s. Here’s a really good video on how to do that.

Chipboard Box with Dividers

Happy Friday everyone! I have a box I wanted to share with you all. I’ve been slowly collecting journaling and Project Life type cards and needed a way to organize them. I came across a video on Youtube on how to make a box out of chipboard. You can find that video HERE. I decided not to have a lid so I skipped that part. The box measures 7.5”w x 7.5”L x 4.5”D. I used K&Co Berry Sweet paper stack to cover the box.  I also created some dividers with the same paper collection and laminated them. I used Microsoft Word to print up labels and adhered them to the dividers. Now I can go to one spot and not scramble through my supplies to find my cards. Makes things a lot easier.
