Organizing December Daily, Desk Maid system review, AND A GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday!!!

I don’t know about all of you but I am SOOOO ready for the weekend!

Today I am reviewing the Desk Maid system from Totally Tiffany. I recently moved and the new home had a bonus room that was a perfect craft studio. I did have the challenge of limited wall space and a bunch of built-in shelving nooks. I have always had a lot of success organizing with shelves on my wall but this would be a bit different. I was searching for ideas on the internet and came across the new Desk Maid system. Intrigued by it I talked to the kind folks at Totally Tiffany and they graciously sent me a 4 piece set to try out as well as their clip and create rotating board.

I am also showing my December Daily organization at the bottom of the post…. It’s a long post day, friends… but fill of good stuff and a giveaway! Read on!

Here is the Desk Maid collection…

This is the 4 piece set full of supplies. (as shown on the Totally Tiffany website)

Totally Tiffany Desk Maid system

After receiving the full Desk Maid set I knew that this was going to be a fantastic solution for my built-in shelving issue. I loved the product SO Much that I turned around the next day and ordered 6 more 4-piece sets!

I am still in process of organizing my room but I got a big chunk done, and thanks to the Desk Maid system I was able to condense what was in three of these built-in shelving units to ONE! Seriously… it was crazy how much space this saved! Take a look!

It’s like candy for my eyes!  I love seeing my supplies, it helps me remember to use them. I love having my coloring supplies and tools right at hand. And while it is stored in this shelving unit, I can easily take whichever Desk Maid unit(s) back to my work table when needed. It keeps it nice and tidy and when I am done I just put the Desk Maid organizer back on the shelf and my work table stays uncluttered.

These pieces have a ton of versatility. You don’t JUST have to organize your craft supplies (think kitchen organization, makeup, office supplies, and more). You can even use them for specific project organization. You will see how I used the Pen & Ink Palace, Tool Caddy, and the Clip & Create Rotating Design Board to organize my December Daily supplies for this year further down in my post.

The Pen and Ink Palace holds all 80 colors of Zig Real Brush markers with room for your watercolor safe ink pad, an acrylic block, swatch chart, and more room at the top, I have a opalescent watercolor set in the top of mine.

On that same shelf you will see 5 Tool Towers all lined up in a pretty little row. This houses like items together of pens, paintbrushes, ink blending brushes, water brushes, markers, blending stumps and gamsol, chalk pastel pencils, watercolor pencils, and various tools. Easy to see what I have, easy to grab, and easy to put away!

The next shelf down holds my Gelatos, Distress crayons, PITT Markers in one Pen & Ink Palace, A tool caddy sits to the right of that with some specific project tools that I am working with now, and to the right of that is three Pencil Perches holding all of my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

Remember that I had said these shelving units are deep? they get deeper as you go lower because of the wall angels. Because I had so much space behind these units, I placed product behind that I don’t necessarily grab all the time.

Organizing with Desk Maid | Totally Tiffany Desk Maid review by Taniesa Vlasak

Behind the Pen & Ink Palace I have two Stadium Arrangers filled with embossing powders, reinkers, and mists.

Organizing with Desk Maid | Totally Tiffany Desk Maid review by Taniesa Vlasak

In the center and to the left (behind the pencils) is another two stadium arrangers that I am still working on filling. The back is currently holding washi tape and the one more in the front has some empty 5×7 Iris cases that I am planning on using for some kit organization. In the middle of these 4 stadium arrangers I have placed a lazy susan and several ink tins from Tim Holtz. These hold my Distress ink cubes, Altenew Crisp Ink cubes and Some hero arts and Simon Says Stamp ink cubes.

Organizing with Desk Maid | Totally Tiffany Desk Maid review by Taniesa Vlasak

I can spin the ink around to find what I am looking for if needed. I mostly use these smaller ones for traveling and my large ink pads at home but they are easily accessible if I need them.

totally-tiffany-org-1The Crafty Pickle Organizes!

On the last shelf you will see a Pen and Ink Palace that I am using for my December Daily Project on top of the Clip & Create Rotating Board. Beside that I have a plastic box for my acrylic blocks and then an acrylic nail polish rack I picked up from Amazon to hold all my Nuvo Drops and Enamel accents (some are missing because they are in my December Daily supply stash)

In the very back of that shelf is extra organizers I have not used yet and empty containers. I am thinking about using this for back stock of supplies like cardstock, adhesive, etc in the future.  I still need to paint these shelving cubbies, they were unfinished when we purchased the home. I am painting them white which will help the colors and supplies stand out even more.

I think that the Desk Maid system is fantastic for organizing your craft supplies no matter if you keep them on your desk, In your Ikea Kallax, on a shelf, or whatever setup you have. The 4 piece set comes packed so well too! Surrounded by cushion and boxed separately to minimize the risk of damage. I was really impressed by that as well as the quality of the items. I like them white but you could easily paint these lightweight wood organizers any color you wish.

Here is a quick video review I did on the Desk Maid system.

I decided to use two of the pieces of the desk maid system for my december daily organization. Take a look at the quick video where I show you what supplies that I have gathered and organized for my December memory keeping!

I LOVE that this system holds so much and takes up so little space on my desk!

I am super excited because the kind folks at Totally Tiffany have generously donated a 4 piece Desk Maid set for one of you! To enter the giveaway just click the link HERE and you will be taken to a sign up form, That’s it! Easy peasy. Winner will be announced on 11/23 at 6:30 pm Pacific standard time so be sure to check back. I will update the top of this post with the winners name.

I have listed the items that I have shown in today’s post below with links as well. I believe there is a black friday special going on where you get a free glue gun holder with a 4 piece Desk Maid set purchase!

Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairy Friends Shaker Card for KatScrappiness.com

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I am guest designing over at the Kat Scrappiness blog and shop and I am super excited to share this fun shaker card!

Adding texture to Christmas tree die cuts | Taniesa Vlasak for KatScrappiness.com

I absolutely love Kat’s exclusive dies. The stitched tree was just perfect to have the Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairies decorate!

Adding texture to Christmas tree die cuts | Taniesa Vlasak for KatScrappiness.com

To make the shaker I used the two largest double stitched rectangle dies in the set. I just nested them together and used a bit of tape to make sure they stayed in place. I die cut my cardstock frame, the acetate, and the foam as well! Came together super quick!

Adding texture to Christmas tree die cuts | Taniesa Vlasak for KatScrappiness.com

I used several shades of blue distress ink for my background and colored the cute little fairies with copic markers. Not a lot of shading was needed because they are small. I went over their wings and other details with a glitter pen after I was done coloring.

Adding texture to Christmas tree die cuts | Taniesa Vlasak for KatScrappiness.com

To get some texture on the absolutely fabulous stitched tree I used the small pine spring in the Frosty Fairy friends set and did some second (and third) generation stamping. You can see more on that in this little quick tip video.

I added my favorite white, blue and clear sequins from Kat’s shop in the shaker, I didn’t add a lot because I didn’t want it to take away from the decorated tree.

This card came together in a snap and I just love how it turned out. It is easy enough to mass produce and if you wanted to skip the shaker part it could come together even faster.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I am excited to be guest designing for Kat Scrappiness and I will have more fun projects for you soon! Check out Kat’s store at http://www.katscrappiness.com and for direct links to products used today see the links below.

During our preview days this week I shared two videos. One for each new Alphabet stamp set that Honey Bee Stamps is releasing this friday. I love them both and I am sure you will too.

Brand new Sentiment Alpha!

And the oh so fun Color-Me-Alpha!

and now I have two cards to share! The first one you may of saw this week on social media….

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

For this card I used the main floral border in the new Zen Florals stamp set. I also used the Smile stamp set and die as well as the Sweet as honey stamp set.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

First I used distress ink to blend a light blue background (Tumbled Glass). Then I water colored the floral images. After the watercolor was dry I went over with a clear Spectrum sparkle pen.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

I heat embossed a dot pattern on black cardstock and adhered just below the floral border strip. I also embossed the smile die cut and the sentiment that was made up from the smile stamp set as well as the sweet as honey stamp set. Everything was heat embossed using the WOW rich pale gold embossing powder. I popped the smile die cut up on some black adhesive backed foam.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak | Customize the back of your card with your signature and a stamp from the main stamp set you used on your card!

As an added touch, and something I have been doing a lot lately, is taking a coordinating image from the stamp set that I used for the card and stamping it on top of my custom signature stamp.  I love how this just ties the entire card together and makes it just a little more special.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

I also really like to stamp the envelope to match too.

For my next card I decided to shake things up…. well, Literally. I made a fun shaker card with Honey bee stamps new Zen Bouquet set, Zen Florals set, new gems embellishment pack, and I also added in the jar from the sweet as honey stamp and die set.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

I stamped out the various flowers from both zen sets into an arrangement on scratch paper first. Once I was happy with the layout I traced around the jar from the sweet as honey die set. I cut some masks for each of the florals using Simon Says Stamp masking paper. Then I stamped my arrangement using Simon Says Stamp intense black ink.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

After everything was stamped. I took my Tim Holtz craft knife (best craft knife I have ever owned, I love this thing!) and I cut around the inside of the honey jar and around the overlapping florals and leaves. This leaves the window for my shaker card. I took a piece of craft foam slightly smaller than my card panel and I cut out the Honey jar from the foam in the same place as the card panel. This leaves the opening a bit larger so that my panel covers the foam completely.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

Then I began coloring. I used 3 to 4 shades per color family of copics to color in my images. I used warm grays at the bottom of the jar to ground the image. Once I was finished coloring I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the front panel to act as my window.

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

Now the fun part …. Wait, it’s all fun, ok ANOTHER fun part…. filling the shaker! If you have seen the sneaks, Honey Bee Stamps came out with these cute little clear gemstones to use in your shakers. I needed shaker bits to look a little bluish like water so I pulled out a tip my dear friend and fellow design team member taught me a year or so ago. You can dye your clear plastic embellishments any color you want with alcohol ink! So I thought why not these cute little gems. I  took two shades of Ranger alcohol ink and a couple of plastic baggies and put some gems in each. I then put two drops of the ink in the bag and smooshed it around…. after they were coated well I poured them out on a paper towel and let them dry. here is a closer look at them….

Honey Bee Stamps Aug 2016 release | Taniesa Vlasak

Of course I need to buy more so I can dye these lil babies in every color of the rainbow!! I added some of these to my shaker window along with some clear sequins and some blue confetti. I covered up the opening in the back with a scrap piece of distress cardstock that I used a bit of ink blending on ( Broken china distress ink ) and that I drew in some stems with a green marker.  I placed the shaker panel on a piece of Doodlebug green polka dot patterned paper and attached the completed panel to a top fold A-2 cardbase.

Create an adorable "shaker vase" using Honey Bee Stamps new Zen florals series and new gems that you can hand dye to match any project! More info at www.thecraftypickle.com

And that pretty much does it for my cards today. Thank you so much for hanging in there with my very long post today. I hope you were inspired.

There is lots more fun to be had. Keep on Honey Hoppin to our awesome Guest Designer’s blog, Deepti Stephens!!

Ellen Hutson LLC PIN-SIGHTS Challenge | Hidden Gift Shaker Card

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start! I thought I would kick off my weekend by participating in the Pin-Sights challenge over at Ellen Hutson.com.

EllenHutson.com Pin-Sights Challenge

You can find out more by clicking the link HERE (and see some AMAZING project entries!)

The challenge was to take Essentials by Ellen product(s) and pair them with one of your favorite companies products. I have really been enjoying the latest Honey Bee Stamps release and decided to pick something from my Honey Bee stash!

I LOVE the essentials by Ellen stamps, dies, and other papercrafting items so this was a great challenge to hop into and jumpstart my creativity. Today I will be working with the Essentials by Ellen Bohemian Garden stamps and Zipper Panel die.

Essentials-by-Ellen-Clear-Stamps-Bohemian-Garden-by-Julie-EbersoleEssentials-by-Ellen-Designer-Dies-Zipper-Panel-by-Julie-Ebersole

I will also be using the Kindness stamp set by Honey bee stamps.

Honey-Bee-Clear-Stamps-Kindness

Today I wanted to mix things up a bit and I thought… “What if I used the zipper panel in the back of the card rather than the front?” This way the recipient could see the gift when they opened the card but take the gift card out when they were ready.

For the front panel I did all my stamping in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I did ink blending at the top and at the bottom with distress ink (colors listed at the bottom of the post) and mixed some Daniel Smith watercolors to color my floral images. I did add a vellum flag out of Essentials by Ellen 40 lb vellum and heat embossed the same as the card. For the final touch on the panel I added some Sparkling clear sequins with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

I set the front panel aside and went to work on the rest of the card. I made the shaker pocket from an Essentials by Ellen small stamp storage pocket and Be Creative tape. (I probably would have used my fuse but we are moving and it is packed up in a box at the moment). I printed my message on the same 40 lb vellum from Essentials by Ellen using my laser printer and cut it to fit inside the stamp storage pocket. I added the die cut “Enjoy” which is also apart of the zipper panel die set. Once that was dry, I added the pretty pink posh sequins, Prima beads, and Distress glitter.

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

I reinforced the center part of the zipper panel as Julie Ebersole has shown in her YouTube video (See bottom of post for video) with a piece of Neenah cardstock that I blended some distress ink on. I added be creative tape all around the back panel edges being careful not to cover the zipper stitched marks. I then added my gift card in the middle and placed the finished shaker pocket down on top of the tape. To hide the rough adhesive edges I made a frame from the large stitched rectangle dies from Lawn fawn and adhered that to the top of the shaker pocket.

 

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

I love that you can see the gift card through the vellum but the message still stands out. The shaker adds a fun playful confetti party like feel.

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

Here is the view of the back . I started lifting the bottom up……

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

But then I decided I wanted to show you all how cool it looks when it is opened up all the way!

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

What I love about putting the zipper in the back is that the front stays pretty and intact so you can still display as normal if you like.

Hidden Gift Shaker Card | TheCraftyPickle.com

This card was a lot of fun to make. Let me know in the comments below if you would like to see a video tutorial on how to assemble a gift card like the one shown today.

If you have never seen the zipper panel from Ellen Hutson yet. Check out this how-to video that Julie Ebersole (the designer) made. The die is just genius!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you found my card project inspiring. I love giving gifts, but making gift packaging pretty is extra special!

Have an extra fun and crafty weekend!

Hello Santa!

Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am doing some preparation for my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.

 tcp22

For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then cut strips of paper for the side border to add some interest. I cut a snowflake tag  on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello Santa”.   I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.

tcp23

To finish off the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!

tcp21

I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

December Daily – The Joy of Christmas!

Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am in the beginning stages of working on my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.

IMG_6989

For those of you not familiar with December Daily, Ali Edwards created it to document the days of your December. Basically, you do a page for each day spotlighting the activities of the day to include your family traditions, etc. This will be my first year to do this, and I am super excited!

For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 3×4 project life card from the paper pad. I then used The Crafter’s Workshop Positive Stencil and texture paste to create the black cross or plus signs on the paper to add some dimension and interest in the corners. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.IMG_6987

To finish off the top of the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and wrapped a ribbon around it. I added some sequins from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card.

IMG_6988

The title on the card is made by using American Crafts cardstock stickers and American Crafts Be Merry Red Thickers Alphabet.

I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired to start a December Daily! Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

TCP1

For this layout, I was inspired by the new goodies in The Craft Pickle Shop. I covered all of the lines on the page using The Crafty Pickle’s thin glitter Washi Tape. This defines the boxes and makes it fun!! The Crafty Pickle just introduced the Sticky Pickle Spot Stickers. These are so awesome to accent important appointments or to just decorate with. They come in asterisks, stars, hearts and circles.
TCP2

Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your planner gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Rock Candy Mix and are super easy to attach. I used a dot of Glossy Accents to attach them. Who doesn’t love sequins???!!!
TCP3

 I used the Project Life Everyday Line paper pad & cardstock stickers to accent my layout. I cut triangles & rectangles to accent the planner boxes which adds some color and texture to the pages.

tcp4tcp5

I also attached a “This Month” planner clip! The Crafty Pickle has come out with personalized clips that are adorable!! I used the planner clip to “bookmark” my week. That makes it super easy to grab my week!

Product List:

Rock Candy Relish Mix

Documenting Disney

Hey you guys!

I’m back with a Disney Project Life share today!

IMG_6667

This was the second Disney section if you will in my PL albums. I’m not a big mini album girl so I like to have a special place in my albums of special trips.

IMG_6669

I was excited to finally use the customized flair from the shop. It reads “Montreuil Family Vacation” and it’s perfect! This is the second page in my documenting. The first page is always about the planning which is key with a family of 7 🙂

I put a little washi on the top of the pocket and aded some sequins from the shop along with a few die cut hearts and a castle.

IMG_6670

I used a little glitter tape and a sticky spot to showcase our checking in picture. I also used the card key envelope from the hotel to hide journaling and the actual key. I always include ephemera from our trips.

IMG_6672

More sequins and sticky spots!

Croppin’ at the Expo!

Hi you guys!

I’m excited to share another Project Life layout this week and I decided to document another Scrapbook Expo from 2014 for my first page in August.

Yes 2014. Don’t judge. I’m THAT behind but that only means I have lots and lots to create with right? 🙂

I couldn’t wait to use my customized flair for this spread!

IMG_6425

I used the new Dear Lizzy Documentary line to compliment The Crafty Pickle yummies!!

IMG_6429

Stop it. Isn’t the flair adorable? We had a blast at the Crop and we shopped and literally dropped at midnight.

IMG_6428

I love using the glitter tape because that glitter ain’t movin’ for nothin’! I usually cut the tape in half because I like thinner strips to accent. My title card deserved Relish mix 😉

IMG_6426

I like applying washi to my wood veneers and was just about to do that when I forgot I picked up some “potty people” diecuts from Hobby Lobby on clearance! I used some of the black heart washi from the shop and put it on top of the diecut like i would the veneer and cut around. Voila! Custom embellishments!

IMG_6427

Paula and I found a HUGE Daiso and we went crazy inside. I love using these Pickle Spots on my cards. The different shades are so nice because you are bound to find the right color for your project or planner layout.

Isn’t the road washi and Pit Stop flair perfect? I thought so too.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Sorry I don’t have a process video up this week but life has hit me hard this past week and I just picked myself back up!

I did film a quick video for my subbies and I hope you stop by!

Supplies used:

Flair badges

Sticky Pickle Spots

Gold glitter tape

Black hearts and road washi

Relish mixes

Fauxbonichi meets TCP!

Hey guys!

It’s Marisa again with another fun project using TCP products!

This time I went outside the box..big time. But in a good way. Like I LOVE it good way.

I love documenting my life, especially the part with the 7 of us in it. I scrapbook, do Project Life and also love art journaling and mixed media. Well I added a new way to remember all the details of our crazy yet awesome days!

Enter my fauxbonichi. My knock-off of a Hobonichi. You can Google it. Or go on Instagram and ooh and ahh over how creative people can be in journaling their daily life. I know I did 🙂

faux

I wanted to see if I could incorporate my CP products in this newfound love of mine.

I did just that.

I wanted to make a band to keep my soft bound leather book closed. Keep the pages safe. The cover gets pretty dinged up.

I took the magnetic interchangeable piece from the shop that said Marisa’s Pretty Planner and temporarily altered it. I used washi tape and a cute sticker, tied elastic cord on it and BAM Cutest button ever. I also like using the This Week planner clip to mark where I am. Not just for planners anymore!

IMG_6348

IMG_6346

I used some cute washi from the shop to make a box for my Lister’s Gotta List daily challenge. Instead of using numbers on my list I used the Sticky Pickle Spots. Perfection.

IMG_6342

The Relish Mix sequins in the shop work perfectly in my spread. They lay completely flat and add no extra bulk to my book. As much as I love chunky journals, this is one I want to keep on the flatter side. I used some star Pickle Spots as well.

IMG_6345

The road washi was spot on for my story about my trip to Mike’s! Those Pickle Spots are really growing on you aren’t they? You’re welcome.

IMG_6343

I’m so happy I busted out my products and made them work. Most of all I’m happy it added fun pops of color and helped me tell the story of my day.

Check out my video to hear a few stories of how fun and unpredictable my days can be! Oh and to see the goodies up close 😉

Supplies used:

Sticky Pickle Spots

Heart and road washi

Silver glitter tape

Relish Mix movie theme

Interchangeable Charm

Planner clip

Thanks for stopping by you guys!
