Hello everyone! It's Adrienne back again this Friday to share a few fall inspired cards I created using the Public Library and Apple Cider collections. I also have some some photos to share of my creative space and a peek at how I organize all of my October Afternoon goodies!
I love making cards using the smaller scraps I've collected after I've worked with a collection. The smaller pieces make it quick and easy to create coordinating cards and helps use up leftover scraps.
I mixed embellishments and stickers from the Apple Cider collection with some patterned paper from the Public Library collection to create these cards.
The Apple Cider Memory Cards are the perfect size for using on a card. I used a few of the square and rectangle Memory Cards and placed scraps of patterned paper from the Public Library collection behind them. I embellished on top of the Memory Cards using some Pillow Puffs, Pop Drops, and Stickers from the Apple Cider collection.
For this next card, I ran a piece of patterned paper from the Public Library collection through my die cutting machine and cut out leaves. I layered the leaves on top of a piece of cream card stock and stitched through them using my sewing machine. Then I added a button and some ink splatters to finish it off.
I like to mix styles and trends on cards so I can have a wide variety to choose from when I need one for an occasion.
Here's a peek into my craft space to see how I organize my OA supplies. I like to keep my set up fairly simple. When I'm guest designing for a specific company, manufacturer, or kit club I like to keep all of the items I'm sent together and in plain view behind my craft table.
I use this wire organizer to hold all of the embellishments and smaller packaged ephemera, stickers, and alphas from a collection. I like how the organizer descends down so I can place the taller items in the back and the smaller bits in the front, which makes it easier to see most of the items.
I keep all of my patterned papers, stamps, and larger sticker sheets in acrylic shelves like these...
As I said above, I like to keep the items I'm working with in plain sight so these organizers and containers are perfect for my style of organizing.
I'm very, very lucky that I have a whole room in our house to devote to crafting. Last year, I moved my craft room to the main level of our home from the basement which has made all the difference!
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back next Friday for my last guest post here at OA.
Happy weekend everyone!
