New Crafty Storage

Hello my lovelies just popping on quickly to tell you about some fabbylicious storage for us crafty peeps. Teresa over at Crafts & Me has come together exclusively with a retailer to make craft storage. We always need more storage or better storage........I'm always thinking of new ways to store things lol.
In the store there is storage for ink pads, stickles, glitter pots, pens etc etc pop on over here to take a look at all the fabby storage.
I have ink pad storage & I also have the XL Glitter storage, I would be lost without these let me tell you.
My ink pads I have attached stickers to each of them to say what colour they are, even my stazon, memento etc, so everything is where I can see it, exactly when I want it.
Here is my XL Glitter Caddy, it holds them all upside down so they are always ready to use straight away..........this I would be lost without...........
This you can get here for a fabulous price as well.
Even storage for those little pots we all have, pots of glitter or Perfect Pearls this is the answer to storing those wee pots. They are all made with wood so you can varnish or paint to match your craft room.

Pop on over to Crafts & Me to see the rest of the awesome storage Teresa has in her store.

See you all soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My Other CAS Cards

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you are all have a lovely weekend. Its my step-mothers birthday today so we are off over there shortly, we are just waiting on Ben & Megan.
Anyway I thought I would quickly pop on to show you my 2 other CAS cards, 1 is actually a christmas card & another one that will be cheaper to post. As you know my usual style is lots of foofiness & all my cards go in boxes so the fact of just being able to put them in an envelope will be sooooooo much cheaper lol.
It was doing this card that gave me the idea for the butterfly card the other day. I have used the gorgeous MB 'Frostyville Wreath' & cut out the centre of a card blank then added paper inside & card over the top. It also helps to thicken my card as I dont like how thin these are.

The paper is from my scrap box & I added a poinsettia cut from Spellbinders die, I have ran out of red pearls so I coloured a white one & added it to the centre. Ribbon & sentiment are from my stash. I have also added card inside again to thicken it & added a sentiment & stamped a couple of snowflakes :0)
This is the last CAS card & I made it oblong. The sentiment I absolutely love & for the tags I used

The papers are the gorgeous Prima 'Rondelle' & I've inked all the edges & matted onto kraft card.

This gorgeous butterfly I made with thin sheet metal in dusky rose pink. I made it with a Spellbinders Butterfly, I soooooooooooo love how this has turned out.

Inside is decorated to compliment the front as always.

Ingredients used...........
Prima 'Rondelle' papers - MCH
Frostyville Wreath MB die - MCH
Sentiment - LOTV
Magnolia Doo-Hickey die - Bunny Zoes
Christmas sentiment & Snowflake stamp - Sir Stamp A Lot
Pearl Pen & Pearl Heart - MCH
Everything else used is from my stash ;0)

Teresa at My Crafty Heart has more goodies in her store so why not pop over have a peeskie.

Well Ben & Smeg are here with Payton so we are off to visit my step-mum. I will be round to catch up with you all later tho. Thank you sooooooooo much for stopping by I really appreciate it. Normal foofiness will return tomorrow lol.
Tatty bye mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
