Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #18

Challenge #18 - Layer It! I came across this challenge blog while visiting a Creative Lady named Donna and couldn't wait to get started on this challenge! I saw this badge on the CHAC Blog and thought....this is SO me!! LOL I have so many supplies that I never use because it's not the right color or theme but I put my thinkin' cap on and got to work looking for all those supplies that I have neglected!
I chose some spooky, creepy spider paper & purple/orange stripe from the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting paper pad. I have had this EK Success web punch for 3-4 years and have only used it once but I knew it would make a perfect border. I finished it off with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

Stamp Organization

I was so tired of wasting time searching for the perfect stamp I decided to take a few hours and do what I had been thinking about for a long time. Little did I know that it would end up taking 3 weeks but I am soooooo glad I did it.
This is actually a storage box for photos. I get them when JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby runs the 50% off sale because they are about $40. I labeled each container with a #. I labeled the individual boxes with that # plus a letter.
 I grouped "like" stamps together so they are all in 1 place: trees/nature, birds, pets, nautical, christmas, winter.... sentiments are grouped together too: birthday, love, miss you, hello.....I have a section for boy stuff (trucks, 4 wheelers) and girl stuff (make up, shopping)......a section for food (cupcakes, ice cream, coffee, etc.   you get the picture :-)
 There is a picture on both sides of the box with the stamped images. I cut 4 x 6 cardstock pieces, placed all the stamps, used a big acrylic block and stamped…

I am entering this in the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge White Out category!

Challenge 3 - Anything but a card
Love doesn't always have to be about romance right? Take this next project for instance. I started to trash this project and do something else because I wasn't happy with the way copics "bled" under the stencil. But, I kept pressing on and think it turned out pretty cute anyway!

What's not to love about M & M's! I added a bookmark to the tag to be used when all the yummy goodness is gone. I think I will go back and adher…
