Product Review - Totally Tiffany Deanna Organizer

 Hi Everybody!

I’m excited to share another cool product with you guys today!  I was invited to review the Deanna Organizer by Totally-Tiffany and I have to share how cool this bag is!  It’s geared towards on-the-go storage for your die cut machine handbooks, overlays, and cartridges, but it’s definitely got more possibilities.  You can read my review below, and then check out the video with assembly demonstration, and how I filled this bag up :D

The trays come shipped flat.  After peeling off the protective sheet (which nicely keeps your trays from getting scratched up), you can follow the easy directions on the back of the package insert to put the trays together.  This literally takes seconds!

There are 2 lightweight trays included.  A larger one for the handbooks and overlays, and a smaller one for the cartridges.  Once everything is assembled the dimensions are 10 x 5.25 x 3.  This is such a versatile size!

I have a Cricut Explore, and don’t use my overlays anymore, so I didn’t need to use them in this bag.  I was easily able to fit 10 handbooks, and 4 of the smaller handbooks from the Cricut Lite cartridges.  I fit the recommended 8 cartridges in the smaller tray.  You would also be able to use this to hold embellishments, twine packs, and more!  Here’s my video to show you what I mean :)

This is such a HUGE space saver over the cumbersome boxes that the cartridges normally come in!!

Thanks so much for checking out my review today!  Here are a couple of important links:

They will be starting the next session of their FREE Get Organized Challenge Class on September 27th.  You don't need any particular tools or equipment to participate in the class.

'Tis the Season To Be Spooky with Miss Kate Cuttables

Hi Everybody! I'm so excited to get to share another Miss Kate Cuttables project with all of you!   

First I want to make sure you grab the freebie of the day: 

Now, onto today's project!  Here are the files I used:

Every year for Halloween my kids and I create our creepy little graveyard on our front lawn.  It's become a super fun family tradition, and I love seeing the different things they come up with as they get older!


*The digital papers from the Halloween Night Paper were so perfect for this layout!  I used the Spiderweb paper for the background.  Then I added the different colored polka dot papers in this pack for the photo mats.

*For the title, I used the 'Tis the Season to be Spooky as a JPEG file (that has the white background included) to help it stand out against the background.  I used my photo editing software to soften the edges.

I hope you enjoyed my project! I'd love to see some of you try one of these and share it on the Miss Kate Cuttables Facebook page HERE, or on my Facebook page HERE. TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)

Craftin' and Stampin' Crew JEEPERS CREEPERS Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Craftin' and Stampin' Crew 
Blog Hop!

Some of the Craftin' and Stampin' Crew members decided we wanted to share some of our creations on a monthly basis with the 
monthly featured paper collections. 

This hop will be featuring the September Featured paper from
Close To My Heart called Jeepers Creepers

The team has put together TONS of amazing inspiration to help you 
get crafty with this AMAZING paper packet and coordinating pieces!!

 Now let's check out my project! 

*I can't even say how much fun I had creating this Trick or Treat bag!
*Using the sketch from the Make It From The Heart book made it so easy to give this bag a fun look!

*I added the little "eek" and candy accent stamps from the Monstrous Halloween stamp set.

*I also added swirls to the candy stamps with the black journaling pen.
*Layering the green washi tape over the Pansy cardstock gives an extra pop of color!

*After creating the bag out of 12" x 12" paper, I was able to get a bag about 2" deep!

*You get 2 sheets of Picture My Life cards in every paper pack!  So I dook this one, and trimmed it down.  After I layered it with the Emerald, and Pansy cardstock I adhered it to the bag.
*I used ribbon from the Adventure Ribbon pack for the handle.
*The polka dot strip is the "zip strip" at the top of every sheet of patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed my project!
