The school year is winding down. A month or so to go here in south jersey. Oh my the stress with life and work. Sometimes you need to just head into the backyard after dinner and just take some pictures of flowers.

Project Life Card Storage

I've been trying to find a better way to organize my project life cards. I found the perfect system at thecraftypickle.com using close to my heart medium storage boxes. (I actually searched YouTube to find the system I liked the best) She even provides you with silhouette cutting files for tab organizers. I been using this system for a month and I love it… Everything is organized by color, season, or event… so much easier to go through the cards.. I keep my studio calico monthly kits separate for few months then I will transfer the cards left into the system. My project life is monthly.. I used print pictures every two weeks. As of tonight I have pictures in up to May 5th…

Never did take a picture of the mother's day card I made my mom. It was a simple silhouette cutting file. Tonight I also made a baby shower card. A design I have posted before. The silhouette onesie card in purple.. It's for a little girl but this mom is not a huge pink fan. My mom is just finishing up a knitted dress, sweater and two caps for the shower on Sunday.

another layout

I had hoped to work on my mothers day card tonight but its not gonna happen. Unexpected trip to the doctors with my mom after work, then pharmacy, then dinner, then water the new plants I planted.. you get the picture. I'm beat.  Here is the other layout for the other teacher at work. I again blurred the message because its private. This teacher makes quilts for a hobby so I wanted to give it a quilt feel. The papers are from DCWV stack Grade School. I did some sewing on my machine.

I haven't posted in forever because I am just not crafting as often since my mom moved into my home in January. When I do craft I am mostly keeping up with my project life and one little word activities. I desperately need to find time to make some cards and replenish my stash and soon.

I did do two layouts on National Scrapbooking day for two teachers that are retiring. We generally give them a scrapbook where everyone has written something to them. I have blurred the words because my message is private. This layout features chalk studio paper and cuts from the silhouette store.
