7 of 100 - Redux

Here's another card file box that I made yesterday with my Stampin' Up! stuff.  I made four dividers with tabs, though you could easily make more.  I have about ten or so cards in there and there's plenty of room left for more!

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Subtles DSP Patterns Pack (Bashful Blue), Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Word Window Punch, 3/16" Corner Punch

I ran the Whisper White punched pieces through my Xyron (the little X one) - first time I've used the Xyron and it worked well!  I'm down to my last SNAIL refill right now and I don't want to run out, especially since I have cards that I "have" to make (I'm actually getting paid for them!) and my SU! stuff - all 30 lbs of it! - doesn't get here until Thursday night.  But I will have some fun new toys to play with this weekend! :D  I will not admit how much money I spent.  Nope.

Anyway, I think this box is really cute and might make a good "set" gift instead of a typical A2 box.  I had fun challenging myself to figure out how to do it so overall I'd call it a success.

In other crafty news, Joanns has a BOGO deal on OttLights right now.  I'm thinking about getting a couple of the small ones.  The lighting in my room is terrible (hence yellow-ish backgrounds and too dark darks), but it also makes it hard to see what I'm doing!  I've been reading some good things about OttLights and I figure if I don't like it, I can always bring it back.  I'd probably start with just the tabletop ones to see how I like them and then get a floor lamp later down the road if I "need" to.  Do any of you have OttLights?  How do you like them?

That's all for now!  I have dreams of making a card tonight still!


  1. I realize that this is REALLY after the fact, but I just started reading your blog. I have an Ottlite and love it. My mom is a quilter and loves hers so she bought me a floor model. We only have a few lamps in the craft/computer room.
    I hope you bought one & like it!
    p.s. Any way you can provide instructions on how you made the card file box? I love it!

  2. Actually, the post just before this one has the tutorial posted. Thanks for checking out my blog! I hope to post more frequently before too long here... Haha :)

  3. Thank You, I found it & wrote it down to use!!
