Distress Ink Swatches

Make your own Distress Ink swatches by inking up and labeling some plain tags. Put them on a Binder Ring for easy access.
Don't forget to label them. I always arrange colors whether it be ink, paper or pen in the order of the color wheel. I like to start with yellow and end in black.

DIY Magnetic Tweezers

Does it ever drive you crazy having to spill out your mini brads to get to just the right one? And then trying to pick it up with your fingers or your tweezers? Maybe it's just me, but what a hassle! Solution? Magnetize your tweezers! Yep think back to elementary school when you made that compass with a needle, cork, and water. So simple, but it's a time and sanity saver.

Here's what you need. I used one of those really strong magnets, but I'm sure any magnet will do.

Cheeky Beauty Card

Here's a card I made for a friend Pydrah's Bday. I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I embossed vellum with a happy birthday folder on my Cuttle Bug and used it as a pocked for a gift card.

Clip It Up Knockoff

It's been a long time. Things have finally started to settle down at work and I can post again... Yay!

Stickers... I am overloaded with stickers. I tend to make everything from scratch, but who can resist when stickers are 40% off at JoAnns/Micheals or 65% at Tuesday Morning?! Not I. Just like all crafters Sale events are my weakness. So what to do with all those dang stickers? I first tried putting them in a three ring binder with sheet protectors and plastic envelopes. This worked well for a while until I evolved into Scrapbooking. Doh! I swear they multiply when I'm sleeping.

Here's a awesome solution that I found on YouTube

From this video I created my own Clip It Up knock off with a couple different tweaks.
