Well have you ever had one of those I must clean up moments, only to get part way through and get distracted? I have been trying to clear some of my mounding craft supplies and get them back to where they belong or in some cases put away for the first time. What has been my distraction? More lovely dies arriving every few days as I made an order for some Cheap China Dies- CCD (a term I first came across with Shaz in Oz of Calligraphy Cards, courtesy of RosA at Paperchase) and they have started arriving and needed a place to live, as they came I tried them through my machine and left feedback for each piece (required) which only added to the mess I was trying to get through.
I decided to keep my CCD separate to my other dies and have been making mini magnetic folders for some of the nesting sets using advertising magnets and plain Manila folders, the nesting sets are residing in an old VHS box and I’m wishing I hadn’t torn the plastic cover from the boxes so I could poke a list of what is in each box clearly down the spine or on the front of the box.
Here is a picture of the doily die which is behind my image:
I have made a Christmas card for this years stash using a Tiddly Inks digi image called ‘Angelic Wishes’. Still on my plan to use some of my vintage-y papers I coloured the image to suit.
