So I picked the lesser of the two evils to deal with first! Getting organized. For the most part, at my home, everything has it's place. But my crafting desk takes a beating from time to time so I wanted to have a few items I can use year round that will not only serve a purpose but look nice enough to be on display. And well, since we are still dealing with the holidays, I decided to make my first set as a New Year's gift for my mom's office.
Normally I try to give a little tutorial of what I am making but I can not take credit for the design of these projects! The first 2 parts of my desk set comes from Papertrey Ink. There is alot of different templates that can purchased for about $5. I happened to buy these several years and I honestly, I do not remember if I every made them.
The first one I made was called Card Couture. I decided to use Night of Navy as my base and the Floral Boutique DSP from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog. I must admit I buy DSP and never use it. Like I am afraid to not have it on hand!!! What if I need it...meanwhile catalogs change things retire I buy new DSP and whala another viscous cycle. So one of my resolutions is to use up product. So finally I broke open the DSP pack and it's sooo pretty. I personaly am not someone that navigates towards blue or flowers, but it's a pretty pack and not overpowering.
I followed the directions and printed the templates directly onto the Cardstock. This makes cutting out the pieces so much EASIER. Assembled as instructed.
My thought for use at my desk is for Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Pearls those sort of thing that do not have packaging to them once they are opened. And since these are items I frequently use. They will be neatly close at hand.
So I kept the card as a matching item! The cardbase is in Night of Navy with a layer of Whisper White, then Night of Navy, all 1/8" smaller than the previous, attached with Snail. The next set of mats are also 1/8" smaller, Whisper White then DSP, attached to the card with Dimensionals. I cut a 1/2" strip of SIlver foil and stuck in onto the DSP with Snail. I used The Stampin Up stamp set called Here's to Cheers. Embossed it Silver. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the greeting and the Silver Foil paper. A long strand of Silver sequins, folded I half then stapled to the scalloped circle. I attached the greeting on the scallop circle with Dimensionals, and then onto the card with Dimensionals. I use the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and stampled the Happy New Year greeting in Night of Navy. Cut then ends out using the Triple Banner Punch.
A super easy card with lots of Style!!!
