Perspective....I need it today.....

I had this in mind when I ordered the new QK Checkmark die from the election release. The drink is from the new Revolution Milk & Cookies die.
How we look at something is all the difference, isn't it?

QK Magnetic Binder Idea

Well I finally had it with pulling every binder off my shelf when trying to find the one I needed - invariably it would always be the last one I found! So here is the solution I came up with (click to enlarge to see detail):

I simply used my Crop-O-Dile tool to punch a small hole near the top of each spine, and affixed a small black eyelet. I took the photo before I finished labeling so you could see the eyelet on the last three. I cut tags out of white plastic using a sizzix die (gasp!) and labeled each with a sharpie marker. Then I attached the tags to the binders with pink chiffon ribbon since they were going to be sitting next to my pink and black binders on my shelf. Don't they look pretty??

In the Mood for Snow

Finally we have a crisp fall day today in St. Louis! Last weekend we wore shorts and t-Shirts to the pumpkin patch - something just didn't seem right!
Here's a card to put you in the mood for snow......

I made my own snow globe from the Blender die base and nesting circles. The cottage is the front of the 2x2 haunted house. I added stickles for snow but they didn't scan well. Font is dragonfly! Click to enlarge.

Back from Kansas City CK Convention!!

I spent last weekend hanging out in the Scrap-Mart booth at the CK Convention in Kansas City! Had a blast - got to meet all the SM folks, enjoyed some good old KC BBQ, took a few classes and stocked up on some great supplies! Woo-hoo - what a fabulous weekend! I'll put my new stuff to use and post more projects soon, but here are a couple I've finished recently to hold you over. These are photos, not scans so the quality isn't the best, but you should be able to click to enlarge:

Font here is QK Rollerskate:

Fonts here are QK Aquarius (my new favorite) and QK Khaki Skinni Mini. The Flamingo is an exclusive Rev die and the Scissors are Sizzix (retired).

James' New Smile!

James lost his first tooth this summer. He noticed it was loose after biting into an ear of corn on the 4th of July - the next day it fell out. I used Spicy Chicken and Diesel Grand (with the tooth die to dot the "i") fonts, the large 2x2 photo corner (which I have 2 of because it is one of my favorite dies ever), cookie cutter circles, flower, bead and scallop borders. Paper is Basic Grey from the Oh Baby Boy line. Thanks for looking!

Just A Quick Train Track Tip!

If you are looking for a track for the new Quickutz Train die, try the post to the new North Pole die! Here I cut 2 posts in black and connected them together. Voila....
