It's Saturday and I have nothing that is extremely pressing today, well unless you call housework pressing, but I'm good at pressing that back.  LOL!  I've got a new technique I learned from SU demonstrator Dawn Olchefske (and you thought my name was a hard one. ;) )  She really has some great videos that are very easy to follow.  I actually subscribe to her YouTube channel.  So without further adieu here is the card I made using this cool technique.

This starburst pattern is much easier than it looks, honest!  I whipped this up in no time.  Of course I had to add some bling.  Don't you just love bling?  I cut the snowflake out with the Festive Flurry Framelits and the Silver Glimmer paper.  I used the Winter Frost DSP stack.  This is in the new Holiday Catlog and is 48 sheets, 24 ea. of 2 double-sided designs. and sized 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" for just $6.95.  These are a great value and super great for cards.  I've used all 4 patterns here on this card. I punched a little 7/8" scallop circle from the scraps and put that on the snowflake and then added some more bling.  These are beautiful Frosted Finishes Embellishments and you get 12 of them for $6.95.  They are gorgeous!!!  At convention I saw where demos had made jewelry using them.  The are an excellent quality.  They are just flat on the back.  Here is a link on Pintrest to show you. I haven't made any jewelry in awhile, but I think I'm going to be making some of these.  Wouldn't they be a great gift?  To finish this card off I added some of the Organza Ribbon.  One of my favorite ribbons of all time.
Yesterday I promised to show you my new 12 x 12 DSP storage.  I have been trying to figure out a way that I don't have to dig it out all the time and make it much more handy.  Well unfortunately I hadn't come up with anything until I went to use the file storage that I had bought from Thirty-one.  I had purchased it with the intent of using it for our household bookwork, yeah bills and stuff :(. As I finally thought I'm going to put this to use, I got the idea to see if 12 x 12 paper would fit in it.  The file is actually for regular file folders.  Well Lo and Behold!  They fit!!!  Yay!!!!! I was so excited.  I got out some of the paper file dividers I had bought back when SU carried them.  I got out my label maker and made labels and this is what you see.
It even has a couple front pockets so I can store my 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper stacks.  Did you know we currently have 2 of them in the Holiday Catalog?  The Winter Frost I talked about above and one called Season of Style which has some Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake colors.  Between each DSP pack I've put a regular file folder to hold the scraps.  I am really lovin' it!  If you are interested in purchasing one and don't have a Thirty-One consultant you can shop with my very good friend Anne Anderson.  Her web site is HERE.  I'm definitely going to get myself another one or two. ;)

Have a good weekend.
