How do you store your I Am Roses?

Hi everyone, hope your week is off to a great start. We have an I Am Roses DT exclusive on how our designers store their IAR flowers. Head on to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog to see how we organize and store our flowers.

As for me, being on the Design Team has generously increased my IAR stash. I had to find a way to store my flowers and make them easily accessible. So here is my solution:

These are two 3-drawer Sterilite containers stacked on top of each other. The bottom drawers have wheels so they are easy to move around the room. It's very light weight. I've organized my flowers by colors and I still have room to grow =)

These drawers make it easy for me to see what's inside and there's plenty of room so that they don't get squashed. I love love love my IAR flowers and thank you Bunma (owner) for making me addicted!

I hope you guys enjoyed taking a peek in how I store & organize my flowers. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget there are still a few days to enter the May IAR Color Challenge contest going on at the IAR Challenge Blog.
Take Care!

TGF - Farm Fresh Friday: Monochromatic

Hello again! Here's another card that I created for the newest Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm Blog. This theme is Monochromatic. It sounded like fun so I thought I'd give it a try. This is my first attempt using only one color family. I chose to use the Cool Grays in my Copics.

The stamp is CC Riley from the May release. The sentiment 'Lighten Up' is from Anya Says. I used several pattern papers from different collections. For a more closer look, you can watch my video here. Just a quick card share to start off the week. Thanks for taking a peek.

TGF - Farm Fresh Friday: What a Pair

This is my entry for the Farm Fresh Friday: What a Pair Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. I needed to make an anniversary card so I thought why the heck not and play along. The challenge was to use two TGF characters on your project. The stamps I used were My Guy Ian and Miss Anya Lounge. I had such a blast paper piecing the both of them. Can Miss Anya's Uggs be any cuter?!

I colored the images with my Copic markers and popped up both images. The sentiment 'Love' is also from a TGF stamp set called Flutter Heart. So that is my entry for the TGF FFF. Hope you guys liked my card. Thanks for stopping by.

May IARCC "Today I Celebrate You"

Hi everyone, happy Monday! Here is my project for the May I Am Roses Color Challenge. Head on over to the IAR Challenge Blog for more details.

I created two items for this months challenge. The first one is a card. The paper collections I used were both from Basic Grey - Basics Manila & Capella. The sentiments "Today I Celebrate You" & "Just for You" are from Just Rite Stamps - Birthday Sentiments. The bird image was embossed with white embossing powder and stamped on vellum paper. I then used a Spellbinder die - Floral Doily Motifs to cut the image. All the edges of the designer papers were inked with Distress Ink - Antique Linen. (A list of all the I Am Roses flowers used on both the card and mini favor will be listed below)

Mini Favor

I layered a large beige crochet flower from I Am Roses and the two-toned purple gardenia. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder onto vellum paper. I used a small circle & scallop punch. Layered on the bottom are some crochet trim & a floral pearl trim from my stash. To tie the favor at the top I used a purple satin trim. For a closer look at both my projects, you can view them here over at my YouTube Channel: Paperdrama.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope that you guys enter to win some fabulous I Am Roses flowers over at the IAR Challeng Blog.

 Have a great week!
