Christmas In July Collab w/Helen Lewis on YouTube

Christmas in July

I have joined my first (actually first 2) Collabs on YouTube this month.  You can find my Week 1 Video

 

I am hoping to do three (3) projects a week.  I am planning to do a card, a tag and a box each week of the collab.

Merry & Bright Gift Box:  This project I found in Cricut Design Space.  I owned the images necessary to complete the project.  I did add some gold glitter washi to the box.

Patriotic Projects

I love Dreaming Tree SVG files.  They are so easy to make thanks to the great assembly videos provided for each file.

 

I recently purchased and made the Stars & Stripes Forever bundle. I used my Cricut Explore Air to cut out the projects.

 

The first item is the Cherry Bomb Lantern:

Next is the Firecracker Tea Light Topper

The last item in the bundle is the Rocket Lanternrocket

 

I am hoping to bring you more projects that I have completed and be more consistent with my blog.  Hope you enjoy these projects and be sure to check out the Dreaming Tree Website.  I am not affiliated with Dreaming Tree but do love their projects!

FALL GOC WEEK 2: Paper

paper letterboard

I thought I would just share photos of my paper storage.  Below is my newly arranged paper storage.  I have been through the challenge several times.  I use each challenge as a chance to tidy, review, purge.  I am hoping to get my father-in-law to make me 2 or 3 more wooden inserts and get some more Paper Handlers from Totally-Tiffany to finally finish off my paper storage and get rid of the rest of that droop you see below.

The picture below is my A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) card bases and mat storage.  I am hoping to replace this with a 4 drawer cube and make this unit storage for my Xyron refills.card storage 2

 

The picture below shows my 5×7 card base and mat storage.  My complete cards are also filed here my theme.  I use the shelves above the drawer for organization storage:card storage 1

 

Currently my vinyl is stored in this Sterlite container sorted by type (removable, permanent, HTV)  Someday I would like to replace this with an IKEA Alex unit on wheels.  I like that I can slide this under my desk when not needed.  I do roll it out and set my cutting machine on top when I am using it.vinyl storage

I recently rearranged my room.  Photos are below: 101_0564

The above picture is a view from the door to my craft studio.  I try to call it a studio.  It makes me feel better about spending so much time there.  The IKEA Kallax (2×4) on casters holds my paper inside the cubes and my scraprack on top.  It is covered with a wall tapestry that I liked the colors in so decided to use it as a cover to protect the pages opened from direct sunlight.  I currently have file crates holding my stamps and my catalog.  I want to get another Kallax (2×2) to put these in.  It also has my catalog inside which I am hoping to redo since I have changed my storage and am planning to change more of it.

Above is my cutting area and where I use my laptop in my room.  There are 2 L shaped stations in the room.  This is one of them.  The rolling cart under neath this desk area contains all my vinyl supplies and I can roll it out and place the cutting machine I am currently using on top of it.  The grey draws are IKEA Alex drawers and this one contains all my office type supplies.101_0566

A view of the other side of the L where I keep my laptop.  This L is made of 2 Ikea Kallax (2×4) units, a 39″ Linnmon Tabletop and a 49″ Linnmon Table Top and a 5 drawer Alex unit.  I have slatwall hung above each table.

101_0567

This is the area behind my scraprack.  It has a printer stand with printer on top and supplies under neath.  Another 39″ Linnmon table top and a 2 drawer file cabinet.  There is a TV on top (which I am debating whether to keep as I don’t use it much.

101_0568

This is the 2nd L shape which has 1 Kallax (2×4) 2 Alex (5 drawer units) and 2 – 49″ Linnmon Table tops.  The white cart is a Totally-Tiffany Companion cart and holds all my different adhesives.  This is where I do my scrapbooking/cardmaking/wreath making, etc.

This is the backside of the Kallax unit in my main workstation.

101_0570

This is my storage closet where I keep my backstock and some other supplies.  I have 3 carts in here 2 are IKEA Raskog carts and the other one is a Recollections Lexington Cart that I purchased at Michaels.  The Aqua cart is my planner cart I can wheel this into hubby’s mancave where we watch TV and I can work on my planner in there.  The Rose Gold one is my bill paying/mailing cart that I can wheel out when I need it and the black one is currently loaded with wedding scrapbook supplies as my son got married in June.

101_0571

This is a view of the closet without the carts.  These 3 units came from Michaels.  I have my Rainbow backstock here.  Currently my punches are stored in these as well.  Hoping to see if my father in law will make me punch storage that can fit behind my paper in my Kallax unit.

A view of the upper part of the closet with seasonal backstorage and supplies for my flower punch board, pinwheel punch board, fuse tool supplies and some slat wall accessories.

The other side of the upper closet with various supplies.

The lower part of the closet on the far left side.  Sewing supplies and Tshirts to personalize, etc.

 

There are a few piles on the desk that need to be taken care of and some current projects sitting around.  Remember I have been the challenge multiple times so my room is in pretty good shape.  I participate each time to watch for opportunities to purge.  I also learn something new each time and enjoy the fellowship of the other participants.  I think Organization is something that needs to change over time as well because our needs change over time so our space needs to reflect that.  I love my space and credit Totally-Tiffany’s 4 section system with the difference.

GET ORGANIZED CHALLENGE WEEK 8: GOING TO A CROP

goc8

The final week of the Get Organized Challenge is Going To a Crop and will air live on Livestream on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 3:00pm Pacific Time.

The Homework for this week is:

  1.  Find a tote you want to use for going to crops.  Try to make it exclusive for crops.
  2.  Create a packing list of crop “must haves.” These are the things you will take every time. Spend some time thinking about how to pack these items and how they will be used. Keep the list in your tote so you can use it every time you crop. If you find that there are things you always take, but never use, cross them off the list.   Sample Crop List or an Extended Crop List Sample are available at the links.
  3. Decide how much you can do in an hour a crop. Add 20% to that amount just in case you are able to skip eating and sleeping. This should include the number of “pages” or quantity of projects you can accomplish – cards, mini-albums, etc. Use this list as your guide for packing to go to an actual crop.
  4. PROGRESS REPORT:  post in the Facebook Group or email in
  5.  Celebrate with reward #8

You can find more information about the challenge on the Totally-Tiffany website
