Ezy-Press Die and Embossing Plate Storage

Ever wondered how to store your Ezy-Press dies and Embossing Folders? Well here's the solution - the 5036 SB Album D Ring 8.5" x 11" (rrp $29.95). The great thing being that you can cover the front of the album however you choose.

The larger Dies, such as the 2901 Circle die fit perfectly into the protective sleeves that come with the album. I leave mine on the backing card that the dies come on. Small to medium sized dies and embossing plates fit into the 70276 SB Album - Share and Tell - Photo Pocket Pages 6x4. I just fold the page in 1/2 so that it doesn't poke out the side of the album.

The smallest of dies fit in the ATC display pages that you can buy at any good newsagency or gaming shop.

Hope you enjoy Love, Peace, Good Health and Happiness in 2012.

GPP - Crusade No. 58 - Girls on Film

Thought I'd participate in a few more GPP Crusades...this one is about getting yourself on film as oftern we're the ones behind the camera. I took these photos today whilst the kids and co. were having a ball sliding down the rocks at FR Berry Reserve.

Yeah, no makeup and no photoshop!

Christmas 1-4-1 Swap 2011

This is the gift that I received in the Arty_oz yahoo group 1-4-1 Christmas Swap for 2011. Michelle Brown has created this lovely art journal for me and also included some emphemera, painted pages and dress pattern paper. Now I will have to get serious about doing an art journal. I noted on Michelle's Blog that Michelle is an avid GPP Crusader - I've participated but very rarely. Maybe this is something I need to do more often to help the mojo flow. Now I don't do New Year's resolutions as you just end up feeling disappointed but I may just have to use the Nike credo of "Just do it!".

Have an inky week....I'm off to turn my craft room upside down looking for a Tim Holtz mask that I just know I have somewhere.....

An extra week before Christmas will do...

I thought I was prepared for Christmas this year - Ha! Not likely. I've only done 10 Christmas cards. I have completed my Stampgropers 2012 Calendar Swap pieces plus having assembled the other 5 calendars in readiness for posting tomorrow. I've also made two vintage glass snowmen. One was sent to Teresa Abajo for a 1-4-1 Christmas Swap on the Arty_oz yahoo group, the other was a Secret Santa gift for the Anne Westerneng's Kaszazz Team Christmas party. Also managed a card for a friend's 30th.
So many things still to do and I'm running out of time.
