Hello flower card made using the Artiste cartridge and the June stamp of the month.

Hello, friends!

I have a cheerful card that I made using the Artiste cartridge and the June stamp of the month.  For that little bit extra I used one of my Anna Griffin cuttlebug folders. Lately, I have really been using my cuttlebug a lot. I need to come up with better storage for my folders. What I currently have is not working for me anymore. Anyone have any good ideas?

I used White Daisy, Lagoon, Pear, and Creme' Brule' cardstock from Close To My Heart.
The inks that were used were Lagoon, Pear, and Creme Brule.
I used the June stamp of the month for the flowers and the A Bowwow stamp set for the sentiment.

I'll be back here on Monday with more projects!

Very pretty colors and I like the embossing. I store my embossing folders in a plastic shoebox without the lid.

Love the card and the colors are awesome. The embossing really adds a new dimension, and I like the idea of two different embossing. Melanie, you really rock!

I use something similar to Shirley (aka Okieladybug's) folder idea. I took 4x6 tabbed dividers for a file box, embossed them with the folder, wrote the name on the divider and on the folder with permanent pen, and slide the folder behind the tab in a 4x6 file box. This works great for the A2 folders, but leaves the 5x7 ones without a home. I'm hoping to see a good idea here from someone else today for them.

I have a 5 x 9 notebook with plastic pockets (got them at Staples). My cuttlebug folders slide right down in the pockets. I have dividers in the notebook with the name of the folder on them. Works great until I got some 12 inch folders : ) I would also think that a box that holds greeting cards would work for the cuttlebug folders. Hope that helps. Love the card

Melanie love your card. I use the CTMH large organizer. It holds a ton.

Lara said...

Love the card, and I too, am stumped by the 5x7 folders. I use the blue Cuttlebug organizing folders for now, I have two of them

What a pretty card! I love the tone on tone stamping!

Monica said...

I've really enjoyed using the tone on tone effect. Your card is wonderful and springy!

Vanessa said...

Such a pretty card! I love the embossed background. I think I "need" a few of the folders you've used lately! My embossing folder storage is pretty simple; I keep them in a large rectangular basket and use the packaging insert cards as dividers. It makes them easily accessible so I'm more likely to use them.

Kat said...

I love your card. You come with great ideas. Makes me want to dig into my scrapbook paper and see it I have anything close to your colors.
I really like the embossing

Elaine said...

This is just stunning! I really like how the stamps add so much to the Cricut cuts and I did get my new pink Cricut this week (THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!) so now I can get creating again!!

LaurieD said...

The stamp and die cut combo really adds depth ond wow!

Your card is so pretty. I've been on an embossing kick since I got my Anna Griffin Cuttlebug & folders. I was using a notebook (I think from ProvoCraft) with plastic pockets. But when I got my AG folders I needed more room. I found a card organizer box that I got from Hallmark years ago. It had dividers for each month. I turned them around and labeled them with the name of the folder. Hope that helps!

I love the card and the embossing folder. Beautiful!

Jill said...

I use a cute basket that matches my room. I made folders on my Gypsy (similar to okie. I emboss the front of the paper folder and write the name on the tab. I can quickly look through without having to pull my folders out since it is embossed on the front. and it looks cute on my shelf!

Love the card!
I purchased a notebook by Darice especially for storing A2 folders. I have each folder named and numbered and each pocket named and numbered so if one
is empty I know which one it is. Nothing figured out for the borders and larger folders.

So stunning! I LOVE the design, the colors and the beautiful flowers!

Wow what a pretty card - love the dimension and the flowers!

I store my folders in a padded 6 or 8 pack pop insulated carrier. It has a zippered top. It will hold the 4 x6 or 5 x 7. It carries well by its handle to go to crops. And to use it, just unzip and you are ready to go. Hope that helps.
