Guest Designer: Tracy!

Hi everyone!! Tracy here from Tracy's Cricut Corner.  I'm filling in today for Emma who is taking some time off to be with her family and take care of Little Aaron.  

Today I made a card to share with you using the From My Kitchen Cartridge along with Emma's stamps and dies.


I just LOVE this retro phone!! It is sized at 2.75".  And yes I DO remember them!! :)  The sentiment is from MCT's  "Just a Little Note to Say" set.  And the flowers are made with the Flower Petal dies.  For the center of the flower I used a little EK Success punch I picked up at Walmart.  I inked around everything with my favorite TH distress ink~Tea Dye.  

And since it is Friday I thought I would include a little tip of the day!  I don't know about you but storing paper is one of my biggest challenges.  I have limited space to work in so making the most out of my area is important!  But I am lucky to have a whole corner upstairs to myself along with a linen closet (which is full!)  to store my stuff in. 
    
Anyway......I just wanted to share how I store my 12X12 paper pads. 


I found these things at Hobby Lobby, 10 of them come in a pack.  They are priced at 9.99 (at least they were at the time!), and they were on sale for 50% off so I picked up 2 packs.  

When I open a new 12X12 pack of paper I store it in one of these along with any scraps I may have.  That way it is all together.  I store them upright in my closet and they are very easy to
 flip through! 




Thank you for stopping by today!  And please keep Emma, Baby Aaron and the rest of her family in your prayers!  

HUGS~Tracy

  6. What a fun card! I keep my paper in those clear "envelopes" too! I like the tip of storing them upright to flip through. Mine are just in a stack. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Cute card. I've looked at the cartridge but haven't decided if I'd use it enough. This card is perfect!

    I use those paper keepers too. I usually snip the string then use a piece of blue painters tape for a closure.

    Too cute! There must be a stream-of-consciousness kind of thing...Earlier today, I worked on a card with a similar phone! I love your color choices, and the inking really added to the retro feel. Thanks for the storage tip!

    Emma, continued prayers for you all!
