Gina K Kids

I am in love with all the Kindred Spirits Stamps at Gina K. Ok I'm in love with all the Gina K stamps. And the paper. And accessories. And service. Ok you get the point. Gina K Fan here.

Well two weeks ago before I got sick I went to a crop. My good friend Roniece accidentally packed the cards I made in her stuff! But not this one:

I colored teh adorable image with copics. See how I really need a copic airbrush? It took forever to get the sky to look good to me and I'm still not thrilled with it. Please note that I made the bag of bread be Wonderbread by coloring dots on it. I think it's a super cute touch. (You can say that about your own card right?) I may still add a phrase on the front. I'm trying to NOT put phrases on all my cards lately though. I'll need a general card and flip through my 30 themed cards, birthday, mother, get well, encouragement blah blah blah and not find any that are just friendly cards I can write a note in ya know? So I am considering waiting on adding the greeting on cards.

I also wanted to show you how I store my Gina K sets. They come with these awesome plastic things. Gina sells a cool binder that holds them. I'm cheap. So I just trim them down a bit and then put them in the large Stampin' Up plastic cases that seem to breed in my craft room. Four large Gina K sets fit in one. I have a stack of these that are all Gina K. Then ONE for all others... I have a disproportionate amount of Gina K stamps.

Then they shut up all neat like this:

It's nothing fancy, just a little tip. If you have the Gina K binders though tell me about them because they look REALLY nice and I DO have a large Gina K collection...

You are a gal with many talents! Love your card (sorry you've been ill!). I think you're so smart to have a stash of "all purpose" cards (with out phrases) on hand. HOWEVER, if I ever created such a cute card as that one of yours, I wouldn't want to give it away!

Your aprons are great--terrific job placing the pocket in the H-Ween print one! Your little guy looks so cute in his apron. That's great that you let your kiddos pick out the fat quarters they want so you can make them their very own aprons!

Have a great weekend. Dana
