HERE IT IS! My project!

Finally! Here it is! This is my photo express organizer that I haven't used in years! It's now all decked out in Basic Grey Urban Couture (love it!), and it's been given a new and very functional life!


It's holding ALL of my larger acrylic stamps! The smaller ones from Michael's are in baseball card protective sheets in a binder. This is holding my ki Memories, Autumn Leaves, and CTMH acrylic stamp sheets! I was keeping all of my stamps in the original packaging, but it wasn't convenient to keep putting them back in the packaging. I like this better! Plus, I love opening it, and seeing them all at once! I used my Coluzzle rectangle template to cut around the front closure, and the inside handle attachment.


Besides the Basic Grey Urban Couture, I used a layered stack of Primas, and American Crafts ribbon on the handle. I also used a Making Memories rhinestone brad for a little bling! Where the seems meet on the top, I put down a self-adhesive DCWV ribbon. It's so wide, pretty, and the perfect color!


I used a small Dymo label maker to label all the tabs inside! I love it! This is so organized!

All labeled AND organized!

The best part? I have 9 large acrylic sets. There is room for 10 more! I better get shopping? I can't have empty slots! So, what do you think? Anticlimactic from that BIG buildup I gave this project?? I hope not! This is super functional for me! Plus, the best part? I usually alter items for others. This is the first time I've altered something just for ME! Gotta love that!


Thanks for stopping by!!

IT'S GORGEOUS!! I love the papers you used so much, and it's just so organized and neat! I know what you mean about keeping things for yourself - I have nothing (apart from any curtains I make and a half painted living room at the moment...)Maybe when my house is decorated, there'll be time to get card blogging again :0)
