Color Refresh Caddy Labels

Are you ready for the Color Refresh?  I have not been getting any stamping done because I am so busy reorganizing my colors and card stock, etc!  But I created this cool PDF for making new labels, like these, for your Color Caddy.  

(This picture is from before the Color Refresh)

It will print 4 sets, so you can cut one for yourself and then give the others to your friends!  I created the file on Mac, using a numbers spreadsheet, so the excel file looks a little funny, but you cut them out anyway so who cares! ;)  I printed mine on Whisper White Cardstock and will just tape them on with clear tape.  Let me know if you have any problems.  Have fun organizing!

It made it!

Well, it's official.  I am entered in the Artisan Design Team opportunity contest.  My package arrived there safely, before the deadline.  Cross your fingers!

Does anyone else craft like this?

OMG, look at this mess….can you believe it?  I spent the weekend finalizing my submissions for the Artisan Design Team, and really got into it.  I even forgot to eat once.  *gasp*

I guess I know what I will be doing for the rest of the day.

I love this swap!

Thank goodness for Stampin' Up! events, so that I can swap with other amazing demonstrators.  I got this card from Lea Christensen at the recent Riverton Regional, and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  

How come I can never think things like making butterfly cards in neutral colors?  Mine would be all pink and yellow and glittery.  Well, like I said, thank goodness for Stampin' Up! events!  And thanks Lea, you are inspiring.

I just wanted to post a quick hello from sunny and HOT Caldwell, Idaho!  I am busy today finalizing my projects to enter the Artisan Design Team contest, so nothing I can share right now.  BUT,  I dont want anyone thinking I am a slacker and just not posting. ;)  I cant seem to get a grip on a full time job and family AND creating enough stuff to blog about AND getting this done.  Sometimes I even forget to eat.  If you know me very well, that is CRAZY!  Cuz I love to eat.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.  After I get all these projects done, I can start sharing new ones again.  Have a great weekend!

Uh oh….I think Im hooked on MDS

NO, MDS is not the latest in street-drugs!  It is a digital scrapbooking program from Stampin' Up!  This thing is amazing, and now it is VERY affordable!  You get a TON of stuff for just $19.99, and then you can add whatever you want EVERY WEEK when they offer new downloads.  Another thing I love?  NOTHING RETIRES!  You can always have all of your favorite stamps and embellishments on MDS!

I have been playing around with MDS for the last couple days, (likely because I am trying to avoid having to clean the mess on my workspace!) and I have really started to roll out some pages!  It is so easy, you just click and add, then move or remove, etc.  No wasting product, no recutting, and recutting, and then giving up on that layout and starting over, and recutting…(anyone with me here?)

Here is a page I made in less than an hour.  

I used one of the latest digital downloads, BE YOURSELF.  (How appropriate for this page!)  Tons of papers and embellishments came with it. I think I might have to do a whole scrapbook with this kit.

Check out MDS here.
