Traditional looks with Ornamental Pine stamp set

Both of these cards were cased from Pinterest and they showcase this stamp set really well.

The first card has a top layer of Crumb Cake cardStock with oval cut out. The cut edges were sponged with Whisper White craft ink, which was also used to stamp splatter from Gorgeous grunge on the images.

This next card was done using the pine cone stamp from the Ornamental Pine set in Old Olive and Lost Lagoon inks. The image has also some glitter and lost lagoon ribbon. The even circle in the middle was done with a 1-1/4" circle, masking the center before stamping the pine cones

Holiday Home

This is one of my FAVOURITE stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue. I just love little houses :-)

This next card was cased from Cindy Schuster, who is a member of this years Stampin'Up! artisan design team.

I just love the simplicity of the card. I did change the greeting on the card to a Good Greetings Hostess set greeting,

This next card was inspired by a card by Ann Bower. The windows were created by stamping the houses with Early Espresso on So Saffron CardStock and cut out. The other colours on this card are Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

Storage for framelits

As part of my craft room reno, I wanted to have easier access to my framelits. Until now, I have stored them in DVD-cases with magnetic business card stickers. I kept few of the cases so that I can easily transport my framelits to venues and workshops, but for 'in house storage' I wanted them on the wall.

First I thought if magnetic paint, but after reading several blog posts I figured it might not work as well as I though, so back to the drawing board. Second option was to get s metal frame (even a cookie sheet) and stick magnets behind it, but after trying that, the framelits were pulled around by neighboring magnets, so it looked a bit messy.

Here are the currently available Stampin'Up! framelits:

Then I thought if those magnetic sticker business card bases, but I would have needed a ton of them. The. I saw larger sheets available at Michael's. The sheet was about 12"x24" and for 2 frames I needed 4 sheets. Priced at about 16cad, I had to run there 4 times so that ai could use my -40% daily discounts :-)

I also used some retired Designer Series Papers to cover the black magnets (adhered them with spray adhesive). I wanted them to be different colours so the current Stampin'Up! Framelits would be on one frame and the retired and non-SU ones would be on the other.

Here are the retired and non-SU framelits
