Floral Valentine's Decor

Inspired by the Kissing Ball I decided to take some left over flowers I had and attach them to a styrofoam ball. I then covered a wooden dowel with green ribbon and added a bow. To make it stand I glued it down using hot glue. Filled the vase with some small acrylic filler and added a few pink hearts. Super easy and it looks really pretty in my guest bath.

Valentine's Day LOVE Decor

LOVE in a shadowbox frame.
I put this up for a Valentines Day decoration. The frame opening is 11x14 and opens from the front which makes it really easy.  I layered the letters and also the frames around the letters so they would stand out a bit. I did 5 layers on each.
Products used-Cricut Folk Art Festival Cart for font. The Cricut Expression two built in cart for the frames around letters. Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug-Rosa embossing folder, lace ribbon, pink pearls and Little Birdie roses.
I believe this Anna Griffin or Graphic 45 paper but not positive. I have had it for years, one of those great finds when I decided to organize. :)

6x6 Paper Organized

Paper, paper, paper! I'm addicted to all the pretty patterns and colors. But I had a lot of it, everywhere! It was taking me over I had so much. So when it came to organizing paper, it was quite overwhelming to me. I decided to start with my 6x6 paper packs first. 

Now during the first month one of the things I did was move most everything to one area. Paper, Dies, Stamps and so on. 
This way I could see how much of everything I had to go through, donate or keep and finally get to the organizing.
I'd emptied many boxes and this one I found
held the packs very nicely.
This box measures inside 12 3/4 wide, 8 5/8 deep and 6 1/2 inches tall. You can pick these up at Michael's, they always have a wide range of decorated boxes.
This tiny box ended up holding 52 paper packs and as you can see I could probably squeeze a few more in there but it would make it difficult to view what I had if I overstuffed it. 
For now I am on paper pack buying restriction. :) I will only buy a new one if I have used one up. 

 I used some scrap chipboard pieces as a divider or place holder whenever I take a paper pack out so I know where to put it back when I'm done. It makes it much easier to keep them organized this way. I have them organized by brand then holiday and or season. 
When I am done I just lay the chipboard on top of the paper and throw the lid on. I have a few more of these placed behind the back row of paper for when I am pulling multiple paper packs. Very easy to keep organized.
