Organize your Stuff: Week 22 (round 3): Dies Part 1

International Blog Candy!
First, the Infomercial: This week at Tuesday Trio, we are proud to announce a new Design Team Member: Zehavit Shaked! And in honor of her joining, we are having an international Blog Hop! …with Blog Candy! That’s right ladies! You too could win a small package of paper crafting goodness from this site and each of the other Design Team blogs as well!

Sound too good to be true! No! This is no Sham-Wow! This is an honest to goodness freebie!  No shipping and handling required! All you need to do, is 1) become a follower. These are their rules not ours, sorry... and 2) post the answer to the following question: What area do you most need help organizing (scrapbook related…I do not do hall closets, pantries, or under the kids beds…the sock monster lives there and he scares me)? At the end of the Blog Hop, we will random number generator a winner. It does not matter where you live. If you can receive mail, you can enter! Now back to your regular programming…

Here is my Design Team Card for Sketch 52 this week at Tuesday Trio. The bonus challenge it to use glitter.  It has glimmer mist from Tattered Angels that the photograph just does not pick up.  Bummer! Creative Me has forgotten how messy glitter can be…It is like sand from the beach...it just gets everywhere...and you can still find remnants six months later.  Another hiccup, Creative Mee failed to account for how slow the glue can dry when it is raining nonstop and just damp out. The POW thinks that rain is OK. We could be like the rest of the United States and be under FEET of snow!
As for dies… the Inner Hoarder has never really taken to die cutting machines. That is why we have our Cricut (see Week 20: Dies Part 1 & Part 2).  The love was done on the Cricut machine. This leaves me with this little guy. Believe it or not, Creative Me won this as the Grand Prize at a crop. We got a ticket for each layout completed. With our Irish luck (yes, we are part Irish…and therefore Murphy’s Law applies in almost any given situation), we won the one prize that we would not use. It has been out of the box once since…
My challenge to myself this week… break out this sucker and use it for my layout… and find it a home in the scrap room! Well, that, finally get Illusive Middle Child's mini album done, and homemade Valentines Day cards for Girl Friday (who is not happy that the Illusive Middle Child has entered her scrapping kingdom).  Also, February's One Little Word homework should be up! Speaking of OLW,  they are blog hopping too today (and I am the last link!) Here is my Word Inspiratioin mini...why we chose Embrace, and here is our completed January homework!  Creative Me will be busy this week, so wish us luck!

Debby said...

Beautiful and elegant card!

JaneH said...

Lovely card...now break out that little green bug and learn to love it!

Steph said...

I am trying to use my cuttlebug more too. Since I don't have a craft space, it always seems to stay in the storage area.

Mel H. said...

Beautiful card! And good luck breaking in your little bug! LOL!

Christina said...

I use my Cuttlebug for embossing. I know how you feel though-my Cricut gets all my die cut love. :)

Becky said...

I love the butterfly on your card and all the glittery goodness. HOWEVER, I know what you mean about that pesky glitter getting everywhere. It always looks so pretty though. Give your Cuttlebug a chance, I think you'll really like it if you use it a little bit :)

Thanks for the candy!
