Storage Idea for Pens

Hey everyone, ever tried to find a new storage idea. 
You know, one that looks expensive but without the costly price. I love my new storage idea for pens, highlighters, and my Pink Paislee Pixie Stix. Best of all, these are cheap and easy to find at Walmart.

Hint: Look in the kitchen isle, between the salt and pepper shakers. 

Sugar pourers. You know the ones you see at really cool diners. I simply removed the top and threw my items inside. This containers make for a clean crisp look on my glass shelf. Why? Because this storage idea is transparent and does not disturb ones eyes. As you can see, mines is situated between a mini album and my Zutter Binder. 

 Luv it. 

Hugs, Kiki

A True Story Of Wonderful Bliss (Layout 11 of 12)

7 Gypsies Photo Display Stand

There are so many different name brands jammed into this layout. Who would know where to begin. However I am really excited because this is the second to last layout of this journey. After this, I will start adding pictures. Hurray!

The flowers in the layout are by Prima. The library cards are by Colorbok. The bird on the library card in Girl Paperie. 

The vine around the layout I purchased at BenFranklin [who is going out of business :( ]. I inked around the Colorbok library card with my Tim Holtz - Mustard Seed in pad. I like the dirty look. The paper clip is from Stampin Up

I did a rough clear embossing to the dress form, which is by Girl Paperie. I added Tim Holtz - Findings Wings to the back of the dress form using foam double sided tape. The typewriter came from a stamp I purchased at Michael's.

The "True Story" came from a back by KComapany. The button next to the word "of" is from a 2003 EK Success collection. There is a little bunny sticking out from behind the 2 paper flowers. The tine flower I made (fun and tedious) using a Tim Holtz tutorial technique. I also used Tim Holtz Clear Fragment accent to highlight "True". The clear accent was painted with Ranger Dopper- Copper paint. I don't remember where the metal "A" is from, but I have a strong feeling that it's from Making Memories.  The metal flower was purchased from the Hobby Lobby - Spare Parts collection.

I used the DCWV - Tattered Time paper collection to make the ruler. The green blue trim is from American Crafts - Dear Lizzy Collection. The flat back pearls were purchased at JoAnn and the butterfly was purchased on Ebay.

The bird is by Girl Paperie and is on a coin envelope that been stamped and embossed with Tim Holz - Attic Treasures (clear) and Warehouse District (black). The word "BLISS" is from the Tim Holz -Adage Tickets and the hinge clips Tim Holtz Ideology collection. The green word "WONDERFUL" is by KCompany. I used my Dymo label maker to type the black "WONDERFUL" label.

Thank you for embarking on this journey with me. I am finally done. The back will just be simple with my card information. I hope this inspired more people to make and show their 7 Gypsies Photo Display Stand.

P.S. The background paper used in all the layouts is by Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) - Cotton Bloom Stack

Because... (Layout 10 of 12)

Sometimes "Because" is all you have to say. The "because(s)" in our lives and make us cry, laugh, smile and inspire us to be better. I was inspired to use burlap and paper doilies for this layout. The accent flowers are Prima.

I made the stickpin, is it not beautiful?

The "Because" is by Prima and is accented by a glass heart. 

Thanks, Kiki

Remember Love (Layout 9 of 12)

Remember Love comes after receiving my Websters Pages Sprinkles box. I was so inspired by the pretty paper that I wanted to used the concept of the kit in a neat way. 

The owl is by Metal Art and is attached to a Pink Paislee - Spring Jubilee line.

The love stick pin is by the Girl Paperie collection.

The bird is from the Prima resin accent and the small orange flower is by Making Memories. Most of the flowers on the layout are by Michael's Recollections.

The Webster's Pages Sprinkles paper is held together by Tim Holtz binder clip. THe cover is accented with American Craft ribbon. The blue topnote is by Colorbok. The "remember" is by Making Memories and the accents flower is by Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. The swirl is Michael's Recollections. The 3 butterflies have been accented with Glossy Accents.

The die cut in the background is by Webster's Pages and the tag in front is by Colorbok - Antique Paperie collection.

The binder clip currently has 3 pages attached; however, you can add more as needed.

Thank you so much.

Best, Kiki
