Organization project for stamps and stickers

My husband and I are moving into our new house in a few weeks and are in the process of packing and cleaning. While packing I found a box of empty DVD cases and at first was going to throw them out (well really I was going to try to recycle them) until I thought of a better use for them. In my new house I will have a craft room, which will be a huge step-up from the dining room table I am using now. I have been trying to organize my scrapbooking and card making materials so that it will be easier to move my stuff and also use it all when I set-up my new space. I decided I would use the empty dvd cases to store my stickers and un-mounted stamps and it worked perfectly! I cut patterned paper at 10 3/4" by 7 1/4" and slid it into the plastic case. Here is one of the finished cases:Inside I used the clips that usually hold the advertisements/dvd info to hold my stickers/stamps:
And here are all the cases lined up:

Such an easy and cheap project that will help keep me organized, I hope you enjoyed it.

As my husband and I prepare to move into our FIRST house I have been starting to gather things for wall decor since we will have more walls to decorate now :-D I made these pictures to hang in our guest bathroom which is painted beige and will have brown and blue accents in the form of the shower curtain, rugs, and towels. I am pretty excited about it. Here are the pictures of my project (recipe underneath):

MPS Monthly Blog Hop

My Pink Stamper has started a monthly blog hop with her design team and has invited everyone to join in through challenges. This month's challenge was to create something using black and your favorite color. My favorite color is yellow. My husband and I just bought our first house (townhouse actually) and have received so much love and support from our families that I have very many people to thank. This is a card that will be sent to some very important people in our lives to thank them for being so AWESOME!!!

-gypsy used to do the following
-CAC house accessory cut at 3.5
-CAC bear and all layers cut at 2.25
-Bear base cut welded to house, copied, and flipped
-layers hidden on the back of the card

MPS Challenge

MPS had a challenge: make something springy, valentines day related, or anything that makes you happy! I made this super simple love card using my gypsy and CAC. I used one of the phrases that has layered hearts cut at 3.75. I embellished the hearts with stickles and used an EK success punch. I used MPS everyday life stamps for "love". I really do love how this simple card came out! Also I know I have been posting A LOT of cards lately but be on the lookout for some new projects soon!

Best Fishes

Here is a card I made using CAC and MPS punny-licious stamps. I don't remember the dimensions as I made this card a while ago but I used all the layers for the fish and accessory. I embellished it with stickers and stickles.

MPS: Make Something Yummy!

For MPS Pink Imagination Nation, held on Wednesdays, Pink asked us all to make
something super yummy. I don't have an imagine but I made this card using my gypsy
and sweet treats cartridge. The ice cream cone is cut at 4.75. I also used MPS everday life stamps.
