Celebrating a Birthday

Just wanted to post a picture of the birthday card I made for my sister for her birthday! She is out of state on an internship, so I we aren't celebrating together this year. I'm heading off on a weekend crop and she is celebrating with her friends.

 Big surprise, guess who pulled out the alcohol inks. I used two tones of purple, the light in the middle and the dark around the edges. First I embossed with a background stamp. I stamped the flowers and alcohol inked them. Then I reversed the embossing ink, and fussy cut them. The bling is all from the iRock system.

 And a preview of my work in progress scrap loft. I got this used cabinet at a garage sale for $10. I tore out the TV stand and put in some shelf and voila-hidden scrap storage.

 Two of my favorite canvas' I've gotten and a random little bird from my Grandma's.
Hello lots of storage space!
My favorite command hooks from my dorm made for great hangers for cricut mats, misting masks, and some other hanging items. 

More pictures to come later. I'm in the process of getting back to teaching. My classroom construction isn't ready, so I'm working on lots of projects from home for the time being. Dreading the unpacking but excited to see my kiddos.


  1. Love your card! I'm just getting into alcohol inks. And what a great storage piece! Glad to see you put it to work. :)
