A Little Organization

What is the last thing you organized in your craft space?  I spent a little time today making tabs and organizing my cards, I'm so weird I love doing stuff like that!

Mini Beach Bag Prize

This is the prize I gave out at my Card Workshop this month, a mini beach bag!  I actually used a cupcake wrapper for the bag just made it oval instead of round.  I cut an oval for the bottom and cut slits all around the outside edge, folded them up and glued them to the inside of the cupcake wrapper.  I think it turned out pretty cool!

Have a Purr-fect Halloween Card

This is the last card that we made at this month's Card Workshop, what a fun stamp set!  It is the Purr-fect Halloween August Stamp of the Month set which is only available through the end of August.  I added a frame from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to give the kitty something to sit on.  So fun, I just love it!
