Working on this and that . . . mainly from the stash....

Been working on this and that in the craft room so not much to post as far as a finished project goes.... First I pulled out the "A Little Hello" bundle set from Gina K Designs for the first project I am working on:

This bundle has the stamp set, the matching stencil, and the matching dies. I stenciled the flowers eleven times and that gave me 11 card fronts for future cards:

I used pre cut card bases from the extra card base bins for the future cards I will make. Used a rectangle die to cut out the card front pieces. That left a sizable border on the side of the stencil piece:

Did not want to waste these pieces so I used a die from the stash and die cut out 11 tags:

Spellbinders recently held their Spring Warehouse sale so for one dollar I picked up a tag die set of theirs and I used a piece from that die set for the tag hole on my tags. Here are photos of the Spellbinders die set:

Used scrap card stocks for the tag hole covers so not all the tags look the same. 

Also am working on some Christmas holiday projects and pulled out the Snowy stamp and die set by Penny Black:

Used scrap white card stocks to stamp the stamp on using black ink. Then used the matching die and cut the snowmen out. Still working on them but will post that once they are finished. 

Shopping - Ellen Hutson held a sale for 25% off all Honey Bee Stamp products and I ordered a few die sets I have wanted:

Upper left die set is their Patchwork Pumpkin set, next to that is the Seed Packet die, and at the bottom is their Deckled Edge die set. Working on altering another item and this die set will come in handy. Glad I was able to pick them up at such a good price.... 

Still sorting and organizing as I go and finished the stencil storage so that will help with future projects. Here is a photo of the finished storage bin for the stencils:

Using an empty refrigerator storage bin that stamps used to be in I decided I would use this for all my stencils. Using extra card stock (pinks) I used the WeRMemory Keepers Tab Punch Board and made tabbed dividers so I could sort and then label the dividers for the stencils. The taller stencils are in the back of the bin. In the front of the bin are pre-cut 6x6 pieces of white card stock I cut for future projects. This way when I want to use a stencil my white card stock is already cut and ready to go for whatever project I will be stenciling. I also have a piece of drawer liner in the front of the bin that I use when stenciling as I keep my ink pad on that piece of drawer liner so the ink pad stays in place when I am using it. 

More organizing in progress but it is all coming along as I do one project at a time. But as I go and I come across products I have not used or products I want to use I put them in a basket on the work table so I will not forget to get some use out of them. Happy to get some projects started using products I bought in the past but have not used yet as well as more organizing done....
