Enough of that! The past two weeks I have been cleaning up my Stamp Mansion. I had a lot of miniature stamps that I hadn't put into the binders. I looked up the names and collections for each. Then typed up the cards for the binders and stamped out each image on the cards. Then they all got sorted into collections and put into the binders. Now I can tell at a glance what mini stamps I have.
Last week I sorted all my Magnolia stamps. I separated out the Christmas, Nativity and winter stamps. Then did the Edwin's and Tilda's. The Tilda's are sub-sorted by categories - T with food, with flowers, with animals, sitting, standing, etc. The accessories were also sorted by what they were - animals, furniture, food, trees, backgrounds, etc. Now when I want a particular type of stamp I know where to look. We'll see just how long they stay nice and neat!
Last week I also did my flowers. What a job! I sorted them first by type - roses, daisies, cherry blossoms, etc. Then I sorted them again by sizes, especially the roses. I now have 4 bins of flowers and I can find what I need quickly. I found a lot that I had forgotten that I had.
I have finished the last of my assigned birthday cards for the Magnolia birthday card blessings hosted by Tabitha Davis. What a brave lady for taking on the duties of moderating the birthdays and getting this up and running!
I forgot to write down who each card is going to, so I'll just post all three with pictures only, no names.
Tilda is colored with Copics. The doily is from my stash.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I love making easel cards!!!
The rose paper is from the Christmas Story Collection 2012 from Magnolia.
The sentiment tag is a Doo Hickey die. The stamp is from Stampin' Up!
Tilda with A Big Bouquet was so fun to color!
She almost looks like she will tip over if she's not careful.
The large flower is from my stash, (which I found when cleaning) as is the ribbon and doily.
The image is colored with Copics.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, my favorite source for them.
The green leaves are a die cut from my stash. I thought I had that die, but I can't quickly locate it :( Maybe some stamping angel sent it to me :D
The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up!
Tilda With Love is from the brand new With Love Collection.
The card base is SU's Garden Green.
The paper is from the Sweet Crazy Love paper pack.
Tilda is colored with Copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon from the stash.

I'm not sure where the paper is from

I'm sorry this post is so long. Thank you so much for sticking with me to the end of it.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will come back again.
