While I'm finishing up my #30lists album, I wanted to let you know about another list challenge that you might find interesting. Check out @TheResetGirl on Instagram for all the details.

I'll be using this mini album for the challenge, which begins April 1st, and if I use the back side of some of the pages and use this tutorial for adding pages to my spiral bound mini book, it will work perfectly.

I've already embellished the cover with a button tied on with baker's twine from The Twinery, a heart die cut and a chipboard element from My Mind's Eye. And a few of my favorite journaling markers, too!

a tour of my craft studio | letter sticker storage

3.27.2015  at 8:00 AM

Knowing that I was never going to use all the letter sticker sets I had shoved in a drawer, I set about to corral and organize them. Because they were such a mess, I kinda sorta didn't even want to open the drawer because I knew that it would take a long time to even find what I was looking for.

Trust me, this looks so much better than the scary before photo.

I already had the bins, so the job went rather quickly. I also used glassine bags from the shop to corral some of the smaller sticker sheets. And if you are a crafter, they also work really well for acrylic stamp storage, too.

Funny how a little cleaning out also clears my mind as well. It was like a breath of fresh air blew through my Studio and invigorated me to work a crafty project for me. More on that in a later post.

How do you store your letter stickers?

30 days of lists | day 26

3.26.2015  at 8:00 AM

Today, I'm a featured sponsor on the private #30lists blog with today's 30 Days of Lists topic, but I wanted to share here as well because everyone loves a good list, right?

Here we go...

Day 26 | Ways to Meet New People

I don't get out as often as I used to, since I now work from home creating charming art prints and awesomely fun journals and mini books. And, well, I have become quite fond of spending my days working in my Studio and don't need people and conversation as much as I used to, or maybe I've just become more used to the quiet.

I used one of my favorite stamps and then hand trimmed it to make it look like it was a punched die cut, which is one of my favorite little tricks. It's just a $1 bin stamp that had a saying I didn't need, so I asked Gordon to use his Dremel to rub off the saying and voila, custom stamp just for me!

Sometimes it's fun to make lists interactive, so I just tucked my tags inside a small glassine envelope.

And of my gosh, these stickers have to be at least 9 years old, but I still have them and I still use them. It's always a game to find a way to make a list title work with the orphaned stickers I have left in my collection, but that's part of the fun.

If you like lists, join me in the March 30 Days of Lists class. I'm a sponsor and would just love to have you listing along with us. You can create your own journal, buy a journal from my shop, or just post your lists on Facebook or Instagram. There are no rules, just fun!
