Organize your Stuff: Week 20(round 4): WOYWW & Die Cuts

Welcome WOYWW-ers! This week has been crazy with Girl Friday needing to be out the door by 6:45 A.M. for Girl Scout Day Camp (she is a Daisy/ soon to be 1st grader), boys underfoot, Girl Friday returning at 4, Dinner at 5, and Football and Cheer practice resuming from 6-8.  (Girl Friday is in the black sweat shirt on top of the girl in orange at Cheer practice).

However, we did get a shipment from ScrapbookPal with more adhesive and some additional Copics (before the price went up), and that is on our desk. The Copics fit just perfectly in these Crystal Light containers (OCD Me likes that they are sorted by color family…the POW was just happy to find a use for the rubber bands that the Inner Hoarder has in the junk drawer!).


To see other happy desks, hop on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground for the list!

Also, today, Creative Me has a card that she has created for her Design team submission using Sketch # 79 at Tuesday Trio. Pop on over if you want to create too… It is a bright color theme! (…and an excuse to use buttons. Shhh, do not tell Fabulous Spouse…).

Finally, it is Die cut week. For those who die cut, it is almost a scrapbooking generational/ storage space thing. The POW never let us get Sizzix dies when we crafted out of a closet. Too much space for not enough return, but a Cricut… Gotta love a multi-tasker (a la Alton Brown). So today We share our Cricut stash. OCD Me has labeled them with the Brother P-touch labeler, and then hidden them away.

And, in case you were wondering, that is a cartridge stash that spans back to 2007… many many a $29.99 at Michaels and JoAnns (We think that the POW let the Inner Hoarder pay full retail for like one cartridge…maybe).

We do own some nesties now, and some cuttlebug files, but that is for next post! BTW the dotted swiss in the card was from a cuttlebug embossing folder (woo hoo!).

Ohooo it all look like fun to me!!! And wowo Amanda your card is fabulous. Sorry about your last weeks comment I had to delete it as it was about 6 foot long...which meant a lot of black empty space, with only + ++ and and few random numbers in it, blogger must have hic-cupped!! But thank you for the congratulations, even though I wasn't sure what they were for! Have a great WOYWW!!

There's nothing wrong with a bit of OCD - I have a few OCD times myself! Love your copics together, they would make a great photo! Enjoy WOYWW!

Love the bright colours of your card and the stamp you've used as well. And these buttons... a perfect combination.

I am having trouble with the 6:45 am out the door, that sounds like parent abuse to me, teehee.
I am tweaking my copic storage.
Your card is so fun. Love the bright colours and your use of buttons is perfect.
