Timeless Templates

If there is one of my favorite things about papercrafting, it's 3D items!  That's why I have fallen in love with the Timeless Templates from PTI by Lauren Meader!  Her stuff just blows me away!  Recently, a good stamping friend of mine asked me to make some cards for her husband to be able to give her some hand made cards.  I was so delighted!  Here is a card holder template I came up with.  It is the Card Coutre template: 

This was made from SU! Close to Cocoa paper.  I got it wet, and then crumpled it, and really did sew along the edges!  I found little mini tools at Michael's, and found silver brads.  Perfect!  Have a great day!

Scrapbook Wallet of Mihika

Today I am posting pictures of another project I did recently.  One of my awesome co-workers' Mother is back home in India, and her birthday is coming up.  I offered to make her a gift to send back home to her Mom!  Here are some pix:

Isn't she the cutest?!?!?!?!?!?!?

My Scrapbook Room

Well, this is one of my favorite topics!  I LOVE looking at other people's rooms of creativity!  I love taking ideas from others and making it my own!  So, I thought I would share some pictures of my scrapbook room!  Enjoy!  I'll start with my favorite part of my room, my button wall!  This is the Making Memories organizer.  I have bought each and every one of the PTI's button colors, and put them in the Ball canning jars.  I LOVE this storage device!

This is my light in the room.  I had to upgrade to a brighter light! 

This is a view of my closet.  It's my storage area, and I also have sorted all of my ribbon in colors and put them on old clothespins. 

This is a shelving unit I got from Ikea. 

On the side of the unit I mounted the Stakebo's from Ikea to hold all of my SU! ink pads. 

And here is my Copic storage.  This is a little home decor' I picked up at Marshall's, and it is PERFECT for my Copics! 

Here is the back wall of my room.  The cubes are from Michael's.  It's so great to have so much hidden storage for all of my things!  I hate clutter!

Here is a picture of my island I built.  The cubes are from Michael's, and the counter top is from Ikea.  I love standing when I scrapbook and stamp!

Sorry for the blurry picture, this one didn't want to turn out!  This is the front of my island. 

This is my Expedit from Ikea.  They finally came out with cubes that fit the squares perfectly!  In here, i have misc. items, as well as all of my SU! stamp sets. 

Here is a pix of how I have my SU! stamps organized in the cubes. 

This is a look into the drawers.  I try to have them all organized neatly. 

Last but not least, here is a shot of the front of the island I built, and a cute pix of my polka dot curtains I got at Ikea!  I LOVE those curtains!  Thank you for touring with me today!

PTI & Button Bits

I am absolutely in love with this set!  So, I thought it would be fun to get creative, and see what other previous stamp sets I could use, to make my own button bits!  Here are a few of the card creations I came up with.

PTI is one of my favorite stamp companies.  Their designs are just classy, elegant, and just "me."  When I make a card, I can't just make one of each card, I have to make mulitples, just so I have a stash of cards on hand at all times.  Here are a few PTI cards I have made recently:

That's Opal, one of my little helpers :0)

This card was cased by Nichole Heady's card.  I saw the card and fell in love with it!  Then I decided to make a pink version of it also :0)

Papertrey Button Bits

This is one of my favorite stamp sets of all time!  I just can't get enough of this stamp set!  Here are a few creations I have made with PTI's Everyday Button Bits.  I case'd a few from the PTI site, but they turned out a BIT different.

Imaginisce Scrapbook Wallet

Hello again!  I know I have been posting a lot of Imaginisce items, but I placed a large order online, and I had to make sure I actually used it!  So here is another creation I did last week.  This beautiful baby is my friend Tara and Fernando's baby, Karlee.  She is just the cutest baby!  I went and did some newborn shots when she was born, so that asked me to come back and do her 6 monh pix.  I was there 6 hours and took almost 800 pix!  Eek!  So, it was Fernando's birthday a few weeks ago, and this is the birthday gift I made for him.  He told me he is keeping it in his cube at work for his place!  I'll warn you in advance, this is a long post!
