Fresh Idea Friday - Printer's Tray

YAY second favorite day after Thursday :)

Do you have any plans this weekend??? I have family coming over on Sunday so I'm busy getting ready here. World Card Making Day is tomorrow so be prepared for LOTS of {ippity} and Unity FUN!!!!

Check out this blinkie {Lisa A.} made for us:That's my kind of math :)
Make sure you come by the {Challenge Forum} tomorrow for a complete list of challenges....and PRIZES :)

So how about my Friday project.
I've had this Printers Tray done for a month now and it's proudly displayed in my living room. I've been wanting one of these for awhile and finally broke down and bought one. So glad I did...such a cute keepsake idea.
Here are a few close up shots:The branch below is from the {ippity} set {Devoted}. I stamped it right on the cork and just cut it out. I glued on a little flower and I think it made a cute subtle embellishment. The background is the {Thoughts From The Past} stamp.
Here I used the sets {Where You Should Be} and {Totally Happy}
I cut the bottom half of the You are right where you should be sentiment out and added the metal alpha's to complete it. The flowers were stamped right on cork again....I really love that stuff :)
These Printers Trays are fun for scrapbookers and yes even cardmakers. The opening are ATC (Artist Trading Card) size so completely cardmaker friendly.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget about the fun challenges tomorrow :) You will have two weeks to complete them so break out that {ippity} and give them a go :)
Happy weekend!!

  7. This is just beautiful. I bought one of these when I went on a shopping trip to Saskatoon with my daughter. It was a place about 45 min out of town and we'd never been there but it was a fantastic place! I coulda spent the whole afternoon there. As soon as I saw this I grabbed one, no discussion, no figuring .. just knew I had to have it. So glad I did. I'm going to make something similar to what you did, for my daughter.
