3 x 3 Thank You Card

I have been busy making greeting cards during WSU's spring break {so early, right?}.  I used the crafting supplies that I have on hand and my Stampin' Up rubber/clear stamps.  But I did buy washi tape for one of the cards.  Here is a slide of MY CARDS.  On the right is a preview.

I have S**T loads of scrapbooking paper!!!!!

Oh My!!!!!!!!!  as George Takei would say.  I have a lot of scrapbook papers (6x6, 8x11.5, and 12x12).  I really need to use these.  One of the goals this year is to use these papers as often and not buying anymore unless there is a need.

What to do with the tickets collected from shows?

Two of my favorite things in the world is watching musicals and going to concerts.  As long as I can remember, I have always  kept the tickets as memorabilia from the shows that I have attended.  I have collected so many that they have become clutter.  So, I had to figure out how I can preserved my ticket memorabilia in an organized and elegant way.  I searched PINTEREST and found some really good ideas.  The one that I found that I really liked was a shadow box frame in which ticket memorabilia can be housed.

With the help of an awesome friend, Michael, we created something really cool.  The ones we made were given as gifts to my BFF and my daughter.  Michael created the graphics (consist of different show posters) using Adobe.  The graphic (8" x 8") was then matted and framed in a shadow box frame (12" x 12") that has a sliding slot in which allows you to put ticket/tickets stubs in the frame.  It turned out pretty nicely.  Both my BFF and my daughter love the finished product. 

Created with love in December 2012 by Michael and Roxanne

I haven't done much with my blog since December 2011.  This year, 2013, I will attempt to regularly blog.  I am still dealing with my clutter.  I am still obsessed with scissors but haven't purchase as many as before.  Lastly, I still love to craft.  So, stay tuned.

Scissor Caddy

My friend, Karen, and I made scissor caddies for our Stampin’ Up Gals (Triple B’s) for Christmas 2011. It is cute, inexpensive, and fun to make. The time it took to make one of these is five minutes at the most. Materials needed: 1 pot holder of choice, 1 pair of scissors, hot glue gun, 1 safety pin, and a tag with the words “This is the place my Scissors should be. (clip art of a scissor). If you use them, please return them to me.” and 1 embellishment of choice, e.g. brad or button. What to do: 1. fold pot holder into three-overlapping corners in the middle-make sure the hanging part of the pot holder is in the center and its orientation is up-use ample glue to put together; 2. place tag to scissor holder with a safety pin.

What to do with old playbills?

Some people love to read books or watch movies. For me, I love going to MUSICAL theatre. I go whenever I get a chance. Over the years, I have collected numerous playbills as a token of remembrance of the shows I have watched. One day, I realized that those remembrances have become clutter. What to do with old playbills? Something crafty of course. I collaged the front art of my playbills into a frame with the help of a friend. The result is something that is artsy, a remembrance of some of the awesome shows I have seen, and lastly, cleaned up my playbill clutter.
