Note to Self - Create! FMS89

 


It's an exciting time of the year in the Stampin' Up! world!  The new catalog is out and new supplies are starting to arrive.  Stamp sets, snazzy embellishments and delightful ribbons are on the way - and perhaps a framelit or two!  And you know what this means - a total reorganization of the craft space!  What is the allure of organizing stamping supplies?  I can spend hours restructuring and never realize it is past midnight or that the dog needs to go out.  I love to see everyone's craft space and I am forever in search of the perfect "organizer" or a better "system."  So I am sending this card to myself as a reminder of what I am supposed to be doing in my craft room.  I am going to get right back to creating.........as soon as I separate all of these buttons into color families.........




Rita created the sweetest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Linda Callahan said...

hi nana! since I don't have an e-mail address for you I am hoping you check back here! I used Summer Silhouettes for the leaves and flowers and Loving Thoughts for the sentiment.

Pretty, pretty, pretty!! Love the colors and this stamp set is great with the DSP!! I do find that being organized makes me stamp better but it has been too long. Maybe you can come over to help!! ;-)

You definitely hit it out of the park creating this one, Linda! Love all the flags and the buttons tied on the side. You've inspired me to go create!

Linda really love the look and 'feel' of this beauty. So fresh and crisp!
Can't tell you how many nights I looked at the clock and freaked out thinking about how LONG I was in my scrapping area!
Hugs.

Love the bright colors & flags - such a happy card! Guess I better get to organizing!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that is always searching for a better system. Let's make a deal to let each other know when we find the perfect one! Meanwhile, from the depths of our chaotic crafting space, beauty emerges - like this card!!

I LOVE to organize!!! I almost always re-find something that I HAVE to use but had forgotten about!! Have fun making room for new stuff.

Beautiful card Linda! I love it! Love all those colours! I love re-organizing as well....though most of the time I end up making a bigger mess than I started with!!! Ribbon storage is my issue...if you see something you love...pass it along!!!!

Rita said...

I think part of hoarding craft supplies is a constant need to reorganize them. I just always lose stuff when I do it.

Fabulous card this week; I LOVE how perfect your stamping turned out. It looks like DSP instead of ink! You go girl! ;)

This is just beautiful Linda! I love how you've made combining all these colours look so easy!

Linda Suarez said...

Perfect card Linda! I too can get totally caught up in "reorganizing." This card is a beautiful reminder to create.

This is another beauty, Linda! Looks like we were on the same "wavelength" on the DSP. I love it with the stamp set that you chose!
