Well i received my tim holtz clear stamps friday so i decided to mess around with them. I have watched tim holtzs' demos and decided to try my hand at some tags like he does. It was fun to do and im pleased with the way they turned out. I dont have all the fancy gadgets that tim has nor the supplies....so i have to make do with what i have! I a "po" stamper..! I dont just go out and buy whats new and just released, i have a family to feed! ha So i get what i can when i can and have been blessed with great friends who RAC me some things! So i had fun with the supplies i had and i think i did a pretty good job! My hubby even loved them!

I thought i would share some of my storage ideas in my craft room, and a couple cards today.
Ihad fun shopping for some storage containers a few months back, and found these cute containers...the suitcase container has all my clear stamps and other unmounted stamps. The tall container i have all my chipboard in . And the round one as you can see has a whole lot of my stamped images in so i can just pick one out and make a card when ever i get a hankerin to make a card! ha I also have the 2 old wooden cheese boxes i got down at the antique store that i screwed to the wall. I put in my vintage type wood mounted stamps and my favorite stamps as well. I hope to get a few more of those so i can put out more of my wooden stamps. Anyways still working on my craft room, maybe paint the ceiling tomorrow....keep putting it off. ha Then the floor will come later. I hope to paint the roses on my storage dresser tomorrow and then start to build the "hutch top" to go on top of it soon.
I am also sharing the frame i covered paper to match the colors in the room and
I made these two cards today. I LOVE the bulb /pot stamp, its so fun to use flower soft on with it.. And I like this new magnolia stamped image too...she is to cute with her basket and braids! Thanks for stopping by.

Hope they work for them! i really like how the fathers day one turned out.

Today i got to just "play" in the craft room, (after i ironed hubbys work shirts of course!) and I had a great time and got 4 cards done!!!!!! I am so excited about them. I watched stamp tv a while back on the wipes/ink techique and made the pretty plaid backgound behind the flower pot. And then did the flower pot with the same colors with a simular tech. I added stickles to give it a little sparkle and i LOVE it! I also had fun adding fun flock to the chicks in the Enjoy card! I hope to have more for showing tomorrow. All will be listed on ebay hopefully on tuesday evening Thanks for stopping by!

Click HERE to go to this listing on etsy to purchase this tin!
I made this altered tin, inspired by the cute little bunny stamp...I thought a tin to put a little of this and a little of that in it , mixed with a little love...would be a perfect tin to have around! Great for anyone, for yourself, your children, a place to put special works of art or "gifts" from your kids, what ever comes to mind!There is a tag on the side where you can personalize it . I also have with it a 'accordian album" to put in some journaling and pictures in! They are fun to play with and write things in along side the pictures. There are also 3 dividers to label yourself and add what you would like to them. I have listed this item on etsy HERE. It will take you directly to the listing. Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be making more items soon!
