Celebrate Balloons....

Hello & Happy Friday! I hope you guys
have wonderful plans for the weekend...
I'm hoping to play blogger catch up if I can
and work on re-organizing my stamp collection - YIKES!

I've always kept them by companies and in book binders
they're about 5" deep binders - 
but lately it's not working for me anymore, soooo
I'm gonna try what Jennifer McGuire does by placing them in 
those Avery Elle Sleeve Pockets - mine are a cheaper version of those
and are just as good as them - 😁 Found them on Amazon -
I had typed out all the stamp names
& companies on label stickers before I hurt my wrist -
So at least I got that done before I injured myself! YAY

My son is helping me to cut out white cardstock & placing them
in the sleeves - He's such a good helper! 💖 So hopefully
by the end of the weekend I'll have them all or most of them
in the sleeve pockets and in containers I purchased as well -

Hunter & I cleaned off a book shelf in my craft room which
is where I'll be storing them - Wish us luck! LOL

My wrist is doing a little better since I'm not using it
too much - so I will try to type this weekend to see how it goes
If it starts to act up... I'll stop... I promise! 😏
And maybe then I can convince Hunter to type comments out
for me.. He's rolling his eyes as he types this... so who knows! haha

Any who... Here's a simple Birthday card I got done for a staff member
at school - Using a Silhouette Store File (#132407)

I'm using the FUN Echo Park Paper Collection called (Magical Adventure)
I thought the colors went perfect for a masculine card -

Of course I dressed up the inside as well - By adding the balloons
to the inside along with stars, & a Strip of DP --

-- Craft Supplies Used --

Cardstock - Bazzill, Stampin' Up, DCWV, American Crafts
"Celebrate" Word Die - Little B (cut out 4x's)
Medium Star Sequins Die - Papertry Ink
Small Mini Stars - American Crafts Punch

Big Shot, Silhouette Machine, Misti Tool, Memento Black ink

Thanks for stopping by -
Wishing you a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!!

This is so gorgeous, Theresa!! I love the design with the balloon border!! The papers are fabulous!! I use the Avery Elle pouches for my stamps and it's made all the difference. I used to have them in binders, too. This way is much, much better!! Have a great weekend!! Big hugs :)

I purchased green storage bins from the dollar tree for my stamps, ribbons and 6x6 paper pads. Now I need to purchase a bin for my dies and the pouches as well.I got rid of the binders. I also purchased a storage for all of my sequins from a harbor freight. I saw them on Youtube. Your card is absolutely beautiful!!
Have a wonderful day my friend,

I love seeing your cards. They always inspire me.

So glad your wrist is improving. Before you start typing again, check online to find out the most ergonomic position for your arms and hands. Have fun reorganizing! :) And thank Hunter for us.

So pretty!!! I hope you are feeling much better soon! Please don't worry about your visits. I'd be quite the hypocrite if I were to get mad at you. Lol! I've been having a hard time keeping up as well. Tax season. Ugh!! I appreciate every visit you make to my place and thoroughly enjoy every visit I make to yours! Feel better!

I'm glad you are improving and am so thankful you have such a good helper with you! :) Thank you for the sweet inspiration, my friend. Have a happy day. :)

Hugs and blessings,
