April Make and Takes

A local scrapbook store (Photo Scraps in Eldersburg, MD) offers make and takes on the 3rd Saturday of each month. I see the email invitation each month, but this is the first time I went - I loved it! I made 4 of the projects and got lots of ideas for future projects. Here's what I made:

If you're local, let me know if you want to go with me in May. :)

Nestabilites Storage

Up until now, I wasn't really happy with the way I was storing my Nestabilities. I had them in a Ziploc bag for a while, but they were hard to find what I wanted, and they kept getting mixed up. Then I had them in a mini photo album, which was a good idea, but one of my sets was too big and stuck out of the top (when it wasn't falling out of the sleeve).

Yesterday, I saw this idea at a local scrapbook store when I attended their make and take day. (Check out the pictures below.) The lady bought magnetic sheets that are self-adhesive on one side (from the Walmart craft department) and put them inside clear CD jewel cases. I love it! Now they're all organized, I can see them easily, and I can grab the case I want when I want it. Just thought I'd share. :)

Thank yous

I made these 3 thank you cards for 3 wonderfully supportive women. The blue card on the far right is based on the Card Patterns sketch #59 (turned on its side). Thanks for looking.
