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.

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.

This is a card that will be sent to some very important people in our lives to thank them for being so AWESOME!!!

-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!

Get Whale Soon!

I made this card for my mom who was sick this weekend. Using my gypsy I welded 2 whales from CAC together with a rectangle from designers calender. The whale was cut at 5.15 and I think the rectangle was cut at 1.5. I also removed the face using my gypsy and used peachy keen everyday faces for its cute smile. Inside I stamped "get whale soon" using my pink stamper Punny-licious stamps.

MPS Design Challenge

This is a submission for Pink Stamper design team challenge. The
challenge was to use the colors green, pink, and brown with your favorite
cartridge. My favorite cartridge is Create a Critter. I welded the Bear cut using
my new GYPSY (which is also one of my faves) together to make a card. I also cut a
purse with every day paper dolls (another fave of mine) and used a stamp from My Pink
Stamper's original stamp line "More Punny-licious." The paper was all scrap paper so I don't know what paper it is exactly, sorry. Please enjoy. I will be posting more this year as I got a new camera! Looking forward to more creativity this year :-D
