MIM #239: Customizing Patterned Paper

This week the challenge at PTI was to customize patterned paper.
Here's what I came up with:

I used this very old, but still cute, Cosmo Cricket paper & added white heat embossed flowers from the Filled with Joy set & the fun 'happy' banner my friend Erin sent me! I also added some stickles to the flower centers- hard to see in the pics though!

We are just wrapping up mid-winter break- I think I honestly needed it at least as much as my daughter did! The Snow God smiled Friday night and gave us fresh snow for Saturday- I'm sure hoping it wasn't our last day this season, but it was a great one!
I've spent a good part of today converting to the Jennifer McGuire stamp storage system- I'm pretty sure I'm going to  love it, but wow- it's taking longer than I'd expected!!
Anybody else use that system? What do you think? Tips?


  1. I use Jennifer's system! It is the best I have seen, and yes, it does take a lot of time. I am still converting. I had been stamping an insert sheet so I could see the stamp in it's actual size, but am thinking I may start using the index labels that come with the PTI stamps to make it go quicker. I just don't like how the index labels aren't actual the size of the stamp image. Hope that makes sense;)

  2. I am so excited to convert!! You are truly an inspiration. I love that you added the stickles, so cute!


I appreciate you taking the time to come by- and your comments make my day! Thank you!!
