Limited Supplies and My Spellbinders Are Getting Organized

Today's Limited Supplies challenge on Splitcoast was:

  1. feature any shade of green, with bonus points for using designer paper!
  2. embellishments limited to 2 (this is a limited supply challenge after all!)
  3. keep your layers limited to 3 or less.

    I like green, but too much of it is...well... too much! But I just love these mailboxes from the new set, Post A Note, by
    Artful INKables and had to use them....Kermit must get his mail here! (don't forget you still have a chance to win this set plus 3 others if you leave me a comment here )
I stamped and colored the mailboxes with Copics and carefully cut them out. I even cut some teeny mail to hang out of the open box! Finished it off with some punched "greenery" HAHA... get it? Greenery...yuck yuck!... and some flowers with Liquid Pearl centers.


If you've never been to Mel's blog, Mel Stampz, you're missing so many goodies! She had this tip back in January for storing Nestabilities that I've been wanting to try, so today while at Wally World I picked up some cork panels.

This is one of 3 shelf units in my stamp room. Out to the right side in front is my "knitting-machine-table-turned-craft-table" where my Wizard and Cuttlebug stay. Obviously I need to get some more cork to finish hanging what I have....and when my new sets come *wink*...

Pretty nifty huh! Now I don't have to flip through the CD case I'd used with magnets adhered to cardstock cut to fit the pockets!

Thanks Mel!!

And....Thanks for stopping!

Lovely card, the colors and the flowers give this gard a fun summery feel. Oh, I love the little bit of mail poking out of the last box!
