Summer Is Almost Here

We have been super busy but, finally school is winding down. The last few weeks always seem crazy! I found some time to create.
I'm still in love with strawberries. I have made two of these gift baskets and added them to my shop.
Cant you just see some kind of baked strawberry treat all wrapped up these items!? Cuteness!
Hope your day is sweet!

Make It Monday #65: Background Patterns

I decided to live on the wild side and use my paper scraps diagonally instead of across. All the papers are Papertrey Ink. I don’t know why the turtle dots look blue. They are aqua. Enjoy!

6x6 Paper Scraps & Ink Storage

 I thought I would share with you how I store some of my supplies today. Since I have taken up card making I have been collecting 6x6 paper pads. They fit perfectly in this basket I bought at Hobby Lobby. Its very sturdy and has a great handle. It has held up really well for all the traveling back and forth from shelf to table. Those paper pads may be small but all added up can weigh quite a bit.
 Now I really like to save every tiny scrap of paper. But, I also want to know what paper pad it came from. I take a glassine resealable bag and attache it to the back of the paper pad using my ATG gun making sure the top or flap is on the front. Now I have a pocket to store all my scraps in! So far this has worked really great for me.
 I thought I would also show you my current ink storage. I'm not in love with it because its not portable but its doing the job of seeing all my ink easily. I bought a Expandable Shelf Organizer from Lowe's. I just put it in my shelf and added ink. It also works great for storing wood stamps.

I added a "Follow Me" button at the top right side of my blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
