studio9One of the best things that you can do for organization is to LABEL things!  I’ve been labeling my stamp cases.  I was going to use a chalkboard type things so I can change it but didn’t really work the way I wanted it to so we resorted to the Dyno Labeler!

Some of you wonder where I get my energy!  Born with way TOO much!  It is nice to have but can be a hindrance since it’s hard for me to stop and do  nothing.  One thing that is very hard for me to do is repetition work.  I find it way to boring! 🙂 so in order to get things done that require repetition (like labeling my cases)  I just do one section at a time.  That way a four or five hour repetition job all at once …I break up over several days.  Been taking about 15 minutes each morning and if possible again at evening to label a section so it’s not such a big job.  Just a trick I use to get things done that I hate doing!

Well better get going.  I want to paint some decking today that was painted when the wood was too wet so its peeling up.  Going to sand it and paint it since it’s going to be sunny for a few days.

On a side note…I painted my front door a shocking pink this weekend!  It’s looks awesome but it is shocking!  I love COLOR!front door


Vellum Thank You

Thank You Cards

Harriet thank youGood Monday Morning to You!  It is a beautiful morning here in WI…sunshine…sunshine…and more sunshine!  Makes the heart happy.  We had much rain over the past week and now I’m hoping to get my laundry caught since I can hang it on the line!  This week will feature an old item..printed vellum.  I pulled some out of the cupboard the other day and went to work.  This purple is a new purple from The Paper Cut called Basis Purple.  I really like it.  I’m going to post a picture of the embossing folder I used.  It is one of Cuttlebugs…been out for a while but it has a great feature to it.  If you’ve noticed some of your folders having a slot on the folded side the next picture will show you why.

emboss folderReally only works with Steno Cards.  A steno card is an 8.5×11 paper cut at 4.25″ on the short side so that you have a card with the fold on the top side of the card.  You can also put the card so it’s short and long!  Does that make sense. It’s scored at 5.5″ With these folders you can emboss the entire front of the card.
