Cadrmaking Class and weekly post at Smidapaper

Yeah! It's Friday! My favourite day of the week :)

Today I don't have a card to share but I do have a tutorial that I want you to check out. Starting this month, I will do a weekly post at Smidapaper and in fact, I've already started since last week. What I'm hoping to share on the weekly post are some of the crafty tips that I've learned. Last week I did a product feature on American Crafts foam tape and this week, I did a simple tutorial on how I organized my ribbons using cardstock scraps. It's inexpensive and super easy. Check out the tutorial here and perhaps you could share with me your ribbon storage too :)


Also, I have a cardmaking class on next Saturday. The theme for the class is "Occasions" with stamping. It's going to be fun and if you are around here, do come and join us! More info on the class can be found here.

Here's the sneak....

  12. I think that is indeed the best way to store ribbons & I used to do it like that but got too lazy {not really but more like too busy...} so now I colour code them then pile them into little open-topped square boxes that sit on my embellishment shelf {a little bookshelf at the side of my desk} but of course sometimes I have to iron them flat if they get creased in there!

    В 1931 г. Никола Тесла продемонстрировал публике загадочный автомобиль. Из роскошного лимузина извлекли бензиновый двигатель и установили электромотор. Потом Тесла на глазах у публики поместил под капот невзрачную коробочк, из коей торчали 2 стерженька, и подключил ее к двигателю. Сказав: «Теперь мы имеем энергию», Тесла сел за руль и поехал. Машину испытывали неделю. Она развивала скорость до 150 км/ч и, похоже, абсолютно не нуждалась в подарядке. Все спрашивали Тесла : «Откуда берется энергия?» Он отвечал: «Из эфира». Наверное, мы сегодня уже бы ездили на автомобилях с вечным двигателем, в случае в случае если бы те – давние -- зрители не заговорили о нечистой силе. Рассердившийся ученый вынул загадочную коробку из автомобиля и унес в лабораторию. Тайна ее не разгадана до сих пор.
