I love making cards! I love cards for any occasion, but love holiday, baby and birthday cards! All my creations use stamps and embellishments from Papertrey Ink or Lawn Fawn unless otherwise noted.

My newest goodies, some new cards and a few updated studio storage pics

Hi all!  I know it's been a while.  Things have been so crazy at work... on top of the fact that I started a new/old position at work.  I'm back in the ER as a registrar, the same position I started with as a per diem almost 2 years ago!!!  Wow I can't believe it will be 2 years with the hospital in August.  I've officially been out here in Arizona now two years yesterday.. Sadly I haven't been able to afford or get the time off to fly home and see my family in those two years. <SIGH> 

Here's a pic of my newest purchase from PTI, their 5 year Anniversary February release!!

And here's what I made with a couple of those sets!!!

I used the Framed Out #1 $5 set here

Here I used the Sweet Spring and Background Basics Medallions sets with Copics

I used the Scrambled Eggs and Tag Sale #3 die here with Copics

I also wanted to show my fellow PTI fans how I store my ribbon and inks so here is a pic of each 

This is currently holding the PTI Grosgrain ribbon in every color... I think I'm going to pick up another one of these when I get another 50% off coupon at Michaels or the next time they are on sale for 40% off. (I'm already a Gold member there, so I get loyalty savings from time to time of $5 off a $20 purchase)  Is that sad that I'm a gold member already and it's only March 2nd??

This is my ink storage/$5 PTI stamp set storage area.  It's made of Foam Board.. NICE AND CHEAP!!! lol!  The top of it holds gift boxes I bought from Dollar General for $1 each and I am in the works of finding the right aqua spray paint to paint all the boxes blue to match the aqua mist.  Next to the last box are my Vintage Tea Dye Duo cubes. The ink storage itself has the following from left to right: Amuse Pigment Inks, PTI Pigment Inks, and then 3 rows of PTI Dye Ink Pads.  I keep my Memento Black, Versa Mark, Colorbox Frost White and my Glue Pad on a shelf next to it.  I covered the foam board with some scrapbook paper from SU that I had last year, and it almost matches the Scarlet Jewel Bitty Dot paper, so I was happy with that.

Thanks for looking!!   :)
