RUBBER ROOM CANCELS SEPTEMBER!

I am currently in the hospital, and I will be undergoing a quadruple heart bypass surgery in the morning. Estimated recovery time at this point for me is 6-8 weeks. It is with a very sad heart that I am cancelling all Rubber Room activities currently scheduled for September. I am planning a successful surgery and a speedy recovery, and I hope to be back in the Rubber Room in October! I will keep you updated as to my
progress.

STAMPIN' UP! SO SORRY SYMPATHY CARD!

This is a sympathy card that my dear friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Nancy, and I made.
Print Friendly and PDF
For this card we used Serene Silhouettes stamp set for our focal point, and we markered the colors directly onto the stamp. The sentiment is from the new So Sorry stamp set, and it is definitely a "must-have" set. It can be used for so many different occasions. Then we added a little dazzle to our card by using the Large Scallop Edgelits and the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders; both for the Big Shot.

MY NEW FRAMELIT STORAGE IDEA!

I have been working on a Rubber Room "facelift" and trying to give it a more open feel. So I've been re-organizing and getting rid of stuff and moving stuff.... I decided to use my corkboard for framelit storage, as opposed to holding notes above my desk. Here is what I came up with; and I really like it.

Here is my corkboard filled with framelits:

Here is a closeup of my corkboard with framelits:

Here is a peak at my new "Big Shot/Cuttlebug" station with the corkboard hanging directly above it. All the framelits are in quick reach of the Big Shot and so convenient!

This was super easy to make. I had some little round magnets hanging out waiting to be put to use, so I used them. I attached them to the corkboard with glue dots (so they can easily be moved and repositioned; but they were strong enough not to fall off when the framelit was attached). Then I used the smallest flower on the Boho Blossoms Punch and punched out lots of little flowers using the Brights Color Collection Designer Series DSP. I used some Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the flowers to the front of the magnets, and then just placed my framelits on the beautiful little flower-topped magnets.

Here is a photo of the magnets I used:
