The House That Stamps Built: Presentation of the Week

It is my  turn for POTW at The House That Stamps Built.
I am sharing a new organization  system I  
put together in minimal time that makes my card making much
easier and quicker.   I had bits and pieces cut out for card making all over
 the place  but not many full size  cards pieces so decide a tote with
precut white card pieces would be handy.  This is what
 I came up with:
I have sections for: 
-3 34" by 5" card layers
-4 by 5 1/4 " card layers
-  Scored cards 
-Embossed card fronts
-Glossy 4 by 5 1/4 " for layers
-Card fronts (colored die cuts I had)-one exception to the whites
- Card bases: A2 Scored,  horizontal and vertical cut
-Card layers, horizontal and vertical cut unscored- 4 1/4 " 11" and 5 1/2" by 8 1/2"-this is my favorite.
I used a container I had at home,  my dividers are 5 1/2" by 6",  I made the
tabs with my envelope board, they could also be hand cut.


To give you an idea on the scrap section, I save sizes from little strips (for
greetings) to almost card front sizes:

This picture shows the entire basket:
   I picked 4  cards from the past year to share with you that used my favorite stamps:

6104-J, Birthday Vertical My absolute most used
stamp, I keep it on a block all the time, it is cut in half on
this card. Paired with 2411-K, Pelican's Piling, 
3412-C, Gulls in Flight, in the first card.

2008-K, Shepherd Boy -He makes a beautiful card.

4313-K, Sunflower and 8614-D, Find beauty Everyone likes
sunflowers they just brighten a day, and this saying is fabulous.

Remember you have a week to order these stamps for 20% off, see The House
That Stamps Built for details.
