Instagram Prints

Walgreens offers Instagram prints! 
You will need to download the PRINTICULAR app for the instragram prints. This is different from the regular Walgreens app.  Based on feedback, some photo techs at the walgreens store may not know about 4x4 prints.  Additional information about the instagram prints and discounts can be found here
Instagram prints are great for scrapbooking, smash books, project life, etc. Enjoy!

Hosting a Journal Card Swap

Half of the participants dropped out on short notice, did not respond, etc.  Overall there were 7 of us.  Here is a samples of our swap (#7 stack is not shown)
I created 2 sets and sent a stamp card.
Stamp is by Technique Tuesday - This is Life by Ali Edwards


I've decided to  host a Journal Card Swap!  I've participated in ATC and Card Swaps in the past.  This time I am trying something different and easy. I've posted this information on my facebook page and here.  

Journal Cards can be used in a variety of ways: Scrapbooking, SMASH books, Project Life, Journals, etc.  

Theme: Anything general for daily journaling. *Future swaps will have a theme.
  •   Journal Card Dimensions: anything between 3" x 4" and 4 x 6”, horizontal or vertical. Please include an area for journaling or small photo.
  •  Include a minimum of 3 techniques such as washi tape, stamping, inking, layering, punch, embossing, embellishment, etc. = Endless possibilities!
  • Quantity will be determine once the sign-up list is closed. If we have a large group we will have groups of 10, 12, or 15. I will take a poll to determine.
  •  Sign-up date is now and ends October 14, 2012.
  • Due to the hostess on Nov. 5.
  • The journal cards will go out the same week IF all journal cards are received on time.
**Please sign up ONLY if you can commit.

  •  Place all cards in a plastic bag with your name.
  • All journaling cards will be mailed to the hostess. The address will be sent to all participants. Enclose enough postage to cover the return swapped cards. Unused postage will be returned to you.
  • Mail your cards in a sturdy mailing piece.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

My Crafty Spot - Jetmax Cubes

18 cubes and more!
I've downsized from a 12' x 14' room to a 4' x 8' space. I have another closet full to the ceiling plus boxes packed away in the garage. I've changed my scrapbooking style and in the process of downsizing my supplies to fit in this small space. Anything that does not fit here will be sold or given away :-) 
 Pic#1 - Snapshot overview

 Pic#2 - I am using 2 table tops from IKEA. There are 6 jetmax cubes at each end holding the table tops. The table tops are not "screwed" down as I always re-organize, change my mind frequently or might move again next year. I used non-slip mats between the cubes and table tops. The table top lays flat (after taking this photo I realized the non-slip mat was folded at one corner not allowing it to layout. The problem has been fixed). I have not removed the plastic on the table tops as I need to buy plixi glass for the tops to protect them while crafting.

Pic#3 - 6 cubes, hold embellishments, rub-ons, primas, (3) drawers for ribbon, fibers, spellbinders, paints/brushes, cricut carts (very few carts that I have since I use software for creating and cutting), memorabilia, kids crafts (they love to craft with me) and more.

Pic#4 - Paper, Border punches, Scraps, Felt, etc.

Pic#5 - View from underneath. A few things here: chipboard sheets, stamps, sizzix/ellision dies, cutters, page protectors, etc.

Pic#6 - Vertical spots hold my templates, color wheel, Martha Scoreboard, catalogs, Circle cutters, (not shown vinyl, inks, stamping tools, glimmer mist, sprays etc.)
