A Clever and Creative Way to Remember Birthdays

I come from a large and an always expanding close-knit family. With all that family, there’s a lot of birthdays to remember. As a solution, I decided to make a small desktop monthly reminder. 



I started with these cute little Heirloom Calendar Months from 7gypsies that come on one 12″ x 12″ sheet of paper. You can cut them up and add them to your journals, fold them to make a mini calendar or birthday book or cut the month artwork to make your own daily or monthly journal. Each month features a little piece of art, and you can color them to match your style and journal theme.


The base for my Birthday Reminder is a 4″ x 6″ clear craft frame.


I drilled two holes in the top of the craft frame to hold the antique silver binder rings and gather everything together.

Ready For ART Class?

With school just around the corner, I like to have all my art supplies in one place. The Stackable Caddy is a great solution.


This Caddy works perfectly for my Art supplies! I can transport it with ease. There are three separate compartments, which can be removed to make it easy to grab what I need.

This item has been a great addition to my storage solution, and they are now available at your local Michael's Craft stores! 

This fun little wet erase easel board is an excellent way to announce my art classes or any other type of announcement! 


I love the ease of the wet erasing, making it great to use over and over again. I love the fun multi-pack marker set enabling me to be as creative and colorful on my signage as well!

Back To School Teacher Gift Idea

Hello! Jennifer here and with school beginning, supply storage is always on my mind. Imagine being the teacher who receives this.... A Stackable Caddy Organizer that you can add too!!! Add a new Stackable Caddy Organizer for Christmas, Teachers Appreciation Day, Birthday, end of the School year, or just because and they can ALL clip together for the perfect tote-able classroom supplies. The teachers can keep track of what supplies they need at a glance with the see-through and removable containers. You can even customize it with a little message or add your favorite teacher's name!

Wafer Thin Die Storage

Need an easy way to store you wafer thin dies, check out Erin's method using the flexible pouches and the magnetic sheets to store her dies in a memory book.


I used a couple of different methods to store the dies, but the main idea is to use a thick cardstock with a Deflecto magnetic sheet glued to it with Beacon Power Tac glue and slip these magnetic sheets into a plastic Deflecto pouch (or when I ran out a plastic wrapper the dies came in) and then place the pouches in a Heidi Swapp Memory book I had laying around.
 

Check out my full video tutorial on how I made this DIY Wafter Thin Die Storage below!


Now I can find my dies very easily so I will use them more and also store them on a shelf and they look pretty and not just a giant mess!!

I can even store my stamps and dies that work together in one pouch!!!  Double win!!

Now it is your turn, what are you going to organize today?!?!

Supplies Used
Book - Heidi Swapp
Flexible Pouches
Magnetic Craft Sheets
Various Dies - Spellbinders, Die-Namites, Craftwell, Heartfelt Creations, MFT, etc
Various Papers - Robin's Nest, Websters, etc
Glue - Beacon
