Makin' a scene...

Happy Saturday....so glad that it is the weekend although, it'll be a busy one!  I have a couple things to share today...first up is my card...

I really enjoyed making this card...I've been really diggin' making scenery cards....The base is PTI kraft and all the other papers are MME except the blue paper is Crate.  I've been hoarding some Maya Road 'home' rub ons and they were perfect for this card...the chippie tree is Maya too!

There's awholelotta stitching going on too and I did it free form....haha...probably doesn't sounds like a big deal but I was typically hand cranking 'non-straight line stitching'....

I was absolutely inspired by the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, A Funky Fall:


Ahhh....dontcha love it...sooo serene and peaceful....I was inspired by:

1.  the colors
2.  the homes
3.  the scenery style

I also used chippie which makes it potentially feasible to enter my card into Kay Sibley's Chippie Challenge...nothing to fancy smancy but I did cover it with paper:)

Here's another organizational update!

Take note on this particular label...you'll want to run out and pick one of these puppies up!  It's something that I bought at Target...
Check it out ladies....Good Grief, THEE perfect Thickers storage...

I feel horrible because I want to give credit to the wonderful blogger that had her thickers similarly stored but her's were in an awesome wicker basket...I even left her a comment that it was genius to store them on their side so that the letters didn't get creases in them etc...Ugh, sorry...my memory is horrendous....please leave me a comment if you see this and its you that is the genius with the thickers storage so that I can give you the credit due...My storage isn't as sweet as a wicker basket but it works!

This is when I should probably add my PSA for Peachy Cheap and Big Lots...that's where a majority of my Thickers are from...I assure you, it pains me to pay regular retail on those puppies...

  12. I LOVE your storage system!!!
    People joke about the container isle at Target and how I would buy everything out if I had the chance, but I just love everything neat and in it's place! So needless to say, I am loving your road to organization!! :)
    I adore your lovely card!! It reminds me of the movie What Dreams May Come. (With Robbin Williams. The film has such beautiful scenery and your card reflects this creation)
    Hope you have an amazing weekend!!!

The color tones and watercolor style are gorgeous and your chipboard tree is PERFECTION!!! Great work with your free form stitching on the "grass"! Seriously, this is adorable and I love it!! THANK YOU for playing along.

    Lovin' the Thickers storage idea. I was planning to go to Target in the next few days so the timing couldn't be better. Happy weekend, girlie!!

  25. I am so with you on never paying full price. Do you have a "Tuesday Morning" store near you? That is a another great play to find deeply discounted paper crafting items.

  26. Love the card super cute scene with all that random sewing.
    I like how you have your thickers mine are just standing up in a 12x12 open file box that sits on my floor. Might have to check out your idea although not sure where I would put it.

  35. Hi Amy,
    I smell winner for this Trigger card!!! My favorite for this challenge so far.

    I get my Thickers @ Big Lots too. I was just there a few days ago, but resisted the urge to buy more.

    Hey, I'm flying to Seattle on Nov 5th for Julie Ebersole's Nov 6th classes. I'm visiting one of my best friends, Ericka. She's also taking the classes with me.

    of course you realize it took all my willpower to TEAR my drooling face away from that giant basket FULL O' THICKERS!!!!!! i need to go and construct an airtight alibi just in case those babies were to GO MISSIN'... "i was in albuquerque at the time, officer, honestly!" ...yeah...that could work... :) :) :)

  43. I need me some Thickers storage. Right now they're on my Clip-It-Up but in a bit I'll get quite a bit (embarrassed to say how many, lets just say I got them in all colors) from American Craft. It was hard to resist for $1/ea (DT perk - Pebbles is part of AC) ya know. LOVE your card!!! I haven't done a scene in ages. It takes me a while to do since I have to have the right stuff since I'm too lazy to make my own :P
