Sorry I wasn't in touch last week. I went to the retreat and had a blast! It was soo fun to meet all these wonderful ladies I type at all the time. I came back exhausted though...guess I'm not a party animal any more!
here. But before you go I do have a few other things to share with you including my second segment on organizing your sketches and layout ideas. Oh and many of the other PT designers are also having sales soo.....Paperthreads is a happening place to be!
First up I'd like to share with you the goodie bags I made for the retreat. I think they turned out pretty cute! It's amazing what a few cutter files can do to spice up a plain Dollar Tree gift bag! Hopefully, this will give you some ideas of what you can do to spruce up your gift bags inexpensively for birthdays or Christmas even.
Notebook Edge: Shaped Notes file and the pen tool holding a glitter gel pen to draw in the names using my cutter. The flourish is also from that file I just covered it with glitter glue after cutting. The flowers are from my Rolled Up Flowers file. I sprayed them with glimmer mist before rolling up. I love the little bit of shimmer it gave the flowers. If you would like to purchase either of these files to decorate your own bags click on the words below the previews.

Look at all those wonderful items! Aren't they great! Adoree and I just ate the chocolate covered pretzels. They were sooo good....I know I should save the last one for Tyler but I'm tempted not too! I even got some diamond dust which I have been wanting to try forever now! I love that each time I use any of these items I will think of the great lady who gave it to me!
Okay now on to the second segment of my sketch and layout idea organization. If you missed the first segment click here and scroll down. You would think after that long post I would have said everything I needed to! Guess not! LOL!
I do have a few magazines that are very well laid out and I can't bear to rip them apart to put them in my binder soo.......
Sometimes I have magazines though that aren't set up by number of photos. No problem my system will still work with these magazines as you can see above. I still got it spiral bound. This time I used Post It Tabs so had enough room to write but you could still use the flags and label maker...I was just being lazy!
Okay that concludes my sketch and layout organization. I hope this inspired some of you. If you have any questions or have a way to improve my system....I'm all ears. Just e-mail me at shellys art @ verizon.net (take out spaces please).
I'm working on a freebie so please check back for it. Have a fabulous weekend!
