Cupcake


I had a really good sort out of all my toppers and precoloured images. I bought a concertina file in Tesco for £2 and organised them all into it, in categories so I know feel much more organised. I am determined to use them more and now I know exactly what I have. I also bought a smaller file which is meant for cheques. This was £1.25 in Wilko and I sorted all my sentiments into it, again in categories. I tend to stamp a few at a time and I also have some old Craftwork Cards ones and oddments like magazine freebies. It was driving me mad sorting through them all but now they are sorted it speeds up my crafting. Time is precious.
Image - Hobby House Elisabeth Bell topper
Papers - Kaisercraft Miss Nelly
Stamp - Kaisercraft fern
Punch - Martha Stewart simple scallop border
Dies - Lea'bilities flowers
Other - red liquid pearls, pearls, strawberry charm, twine, wooden flower coloured with Wink of Stella

Lovely card Marianne.
Well done you on getting the bits that were annoying you organised. It is so much easier and of course quicker to craft when you know where to find things.
