Sponsor of the Week - LDRS Creative

Hello and welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations!  Hey, guess what? LDRS Creative is this week sponsor over at PPC and Friend Facebook Group.  You can save big on the entire store.  You know what that means? You can get 25% off Creative Basics Dies!  I know right! is how my Monday has gone.  Wake up with hubby and send him off to work as his first day with his new promotion.  I was so excited for him and he was grinning from ear to ear.  Then I started cleaning the house.  Well after 3 hours of cleaning the downstairs I had enough!  I will do the upstairs tomorrow.  Not that our home is messy....I just need to mop, baseboards, blinds, inside windows...blah, blah, blah.  Ok, yes...I am a freak.  So as I am cleaning, I get this idea!!!
And you see it above!  I think this is my very first card made that I did not color.  It only took me 20 minutes.  I think it is adorable!

Here are the dies I used and they can all be found right HERE!  (remember to go to PPCF to get your discount and code!)

Thanks for stopping by!  Dorinda has something special for you tomorrow!

Have you been over to PPCF Group?  Our Sponsor of the week is Scrappers Delights!
I love bubbles every since I was just knee high to a grasshopper, so I just had to color Shaylee Bubbles.

I made a quick and easy easel card.  Do you spy something new?
FanTABulous dies were used to create the pop up for the sentiment and the stopper for the easel card.
To add to the bottom level fancy circles were used as accent pieces.  These sets were part of the CHA release and will be coming available so very soon!

Totally Tiffany Organization...OH YEA!

Totally Tiffany Desk Organizer's ROCK!

Welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations!  Rhea here and giddy to share my OCD Organization with the help of Totally Tiffany!

If you know me, you know Jeff and I are organizing freaks.  My studio is my sanctuary and I know exactly where everything is.  I don't like my supplies out to be seen.  Well, except my coloring goodies!  Everything else is neatly organized in drawers or on a shelf.  Except now I have just the tools and adhesives I use regularly on my desk too....and I love it!

So first let me explain that I am left handed.  What I use most is to the left.

This is my color station!  I have my Copic Markers, Colored Pencils, Water Color Paints, and Water Color Pencils all together and with in reach thanks to the awesome Pencil Perch from Totally Tiffany.
I have several to hold all 150 Prisma Pencils.  My Faber-Castell Water Color Pencils are in a container sitting next to them.  

Being a Copic Marker person, I am use to seeing the colors at a glance.  Well I wanted the same with my Primas.  I downloaded the color guide, colored it in and cut each color taping for each pencil!  Now I know which I am using and where it goes when I am done!  I can easily see when I need to order a new one too!  Sooooo very cool.   To let you know exactly how organized I am....I have drawers under my Copic Case that holds all of my ink pads.  They are organized by brand and color.

Ok, lets move to the right of my desk in the corner

Now it's time to make a card!  Not a problem because tools and adhesive I need are right here!
In addition when I get in the mixed media mood I have my Faber-Castell supplies right at my finger tips.  Wait..there is another Pencil Perch!!!!  Oh yes, It holds my favorite water color paint brushes, my tweezers, my styluses, my favorite pens for journaling in my planner and pencils for quick notes.  Not showing are the sticky notes I have added to the front of the Perch!  
Yes, that is a TV Remote in one of the organizers...Duh!  That is my most used tool!  Gotta watch Chic Flicks while designing.  I also have two stamp pads I use only for Faber-Castell so I put them together. 

Did someone ask what is in the center of my desk area?
NOTHING, except two Ott Lights and a small crystal dish i use for trash while doing a project. 
that's where I create and design.
On the other side of my L shaped desk is my computer monitor and that's it.
I can't create in a mess.  Oh, but can I make a mess creating!!!! Then it gets cleaned and I start again!

I highly recommend Totally-Tiffany Desk Maid Set for anyone who has a small craft space or a large craft space.  The Pencil Perch is amazing!!!

My next goal is to organize my 6x6 paper pads, background stamps and stencils with the Fab File 6x6 I will need several of these babies and The Sue Organizer - I want to put my Copic Refills in this when I travel for classes!  

Seriously, if you've not been to you really should see what she has!  Small craft problem she will fix that!  Big craft space....more room for all the new stuff coming!  Just sayin'

Thanks for stopping by today!
And don't forget you can always have fun and share your creations with us at
