Well I have a busy day today. I have an appointment to finish my taxes and then Jess and I are headed to DC and the Kennedy Center. She got us tickets to see Chicago. We are going out to dinner first then we will see the show. I am looking forward to this and will let you know about the show on Thursday as I am doing my post for tomorrow on Tuesday evening.
Today I have an organizing video for you as well as some more Paper Pumpkin creations. The video is after my cards. The first card used some Cucumber Crush card stock for my card base. I used another of those pouches and cut it down. I took one of the little note cards and attached it to the back of the pouch. The stamp set was the extra one we got in the kit. The little tab used to hold the pouch closed was a piece of the kit. Here is the front of the card.
When the front flap is released you see the note card that I stamped Happy Birthday inside of the note card. Here is the card with the flap released.

My next card used a Soft Sky card base that I embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder. I then took one of the striped strips and cut it in half. I had some matching glitter washi tape that I added to the middle. Using tear & tape I attached the 2 strips of striped paper on either side of the washi tape. In the kit there was a square flowered panel that I used for my base layer. The Stitched Shapes framelits were used to cut a piece of Whisper White. On the square I stamped the flower from the extra set in the kit. This layer was mounted onto the base layer. These layers were attached to my card base using dimensionals. I used another one of the circle stickers from the kit and the Thoughtful Banners set to stamp the word friend on it. This was attached to the lower right hand corner of the top panel. To finish it off I added a bow made from the twine included in the kit. Here is my completed creation.

I also have a video for you today. I don't know about you but I have a lot of washi tape. I am always struggling to find the one I am looking for. I came up with this idea which has been very helpful. You can organize your current ones by the collection. After they retire I organize them by color. Here is the video.
Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. I hope you take some time to do something for yourself whether it be creative or for fun. Have a Terrific Tuesday and I won't have any more Paper Pumpkin Again for a while!
