I think I am smarter than a 5th grader!

Hello again, Rhea here and I just figured out that I am actually smarter than a 5th grader.  I can use my head for more than my favorite baseball cap and I love to engineer things that organize and save money and space! 

Let me tell you a little story.  While at Advanced Boot Camp this past weekend I saw this amazing cart from IKEA with a really cool holder for her Copic Markers from TJandThings.  I mean it was awesome.  The only problem is, I travel so much for teaching it wouldn't work for me.  As I looked at the cart several times I kept thinking I could put my refills on the other two shelves.  Well, they have holders for those as well.  And they are fabulous, let me tell you!  But with as much work as I do with my Copics I can't have any wasted space and I don't need to remove the refills.  But at this point, I was still going to purchase them.  

I come home and as usual, my brain works its best as I am sleeping.  Or Kathy my imaginary friend from childhood tells me these ideas...whatever, it works!  

So here we go.....

On the top where I have to have my case, I have no skid lining on the edges.  Ok, that right there makes me smart right! hahahahahahah.  As you go to the second shelf I started lining up the refills and cut spacers with the cardboard inserts that were in the packaging of the cart.  Yeah, baby recycle!
Then I started lining those puppies up tight, with a spacer that was tightly cut and 2" high in between each row.

Now, don't look too closely because you will notice they go from right to left...really...I'm left handed.

If you believe that excuse you are not a genius either.
For now, it stays!  And yes they are backward for a reason.  They are easier to grab when I need them...I am able to read upside down and backward too :)

By doing it the way I did, I was able to get all but 4 rows of refills leaving me with additional storage! 
I now have my scale to refill, all my cleaning stuff, and extra teaching supplies + leftover supplies 

This is the best part for me.  If you know me, you know I am Mr. Magoo and can not see up to 6 feet in front of me without my glasses.  Now they are eye level and I can see EVERYTHING SO EASY!  It gets better....the extra space where to box sits stores my Copic things I don't use all the time like extra markers, refills for my multi-liners, nibs, and rubber bands for my classes, extra cotton swabs, and baby Q-Tips.  

So for 24.99 + 10.00 for shipping I finally have the perfect Copic Organization in "LIKE FOREVER!"

I just had to share this with all of you and hope you get some inspiration from it.  Organization is my 2nd therapy.  Now someone tell me where my Y35 is!  It didn't come home from Arizona.

May IAR Challenge”

What can you do with the flowers from I Am Roses?  Whatever you can think of!
They just happen to be our Sponsor of the Week at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group!  I could give you the special discount they are offering but what fun would that be?  You'll need to hop over to the Group to get all the details.  

I actually love mixed media as much as I love coloring with Copics.  Using flowers is perfect for both of these projects you are about to eyeball and hopefully be inspired by.

oh yeah, I used my Copics to airbrush this clock and spritz with alcohol to make the colors bleed together this made it look old and rusty.  Then used ribbon from IAR and of course all of the flowers.  Yes, I am keeping this piece!

Here is a wall canvas that was inspired from something is saw at Marshalls.  I just loved it when I saw it and thought to myself....."self, you can make this!"  So I did it, my style.  All the colors are the colors of my studio rugs and black furniture.  The background was done with Copic Refills, alcohol, air compressor and a gold metallic paint pen, and paper towels.  I airbrushed the flowers using the same colors in the background.  Black strips of paper and a touch of bling.  
Yup, this one I am keeping as well.   

Don't forget to jump over to PPCF Facebook Group and join to get your discount!

Wish I had more time to play this week with IAR, but off I go to teach a class tomorrow and then off to the desert of Phenix!  I will blog again next week with updates from Advanced Boot Camp with Jennifer Dove. 

Until then,

Creative Basic with Tiddly Inks and I am Roses

Hello, Rhea here for Passionate Paper Creations to share a little inspiration.
Today, I am sharing my Creative Basic Dies along with two of our PPCF Sponsors, Tiddly Inks and I am Roses.

Here I used Basic Borders I, Background Builders I and the label piece from Fancy Rectangles.
I also used the leaves from Grace Build A Card which is a new release.  The I am roses really set off the adorable Tiddly Inks Image.  I simply colored her in.
B90's, R05, 24, 45, 59 and the skin in my fav's E50, 51, 21, 11.  I wanted to keep her face soft.  Hair was in the E40's.  I used a texture rag with blending solution for her hat.

Happy Birthday Party Animal

Hello and Welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations ,this is your friend

I created a lovely birthday party scene using a few Creative Basics Dies and the NEW adorable LDRS Go Wild Rubber stamps and dies kit.

Firstly I colored my Elephants with Copic markers and used the matching die to cut them out.

My base of my card was done by using one of the NEW creative Basic Dies Allifair -Build-A-Card die set. This die kit has 9 pieces in total and the ideas using these are endless.

I used another New Creative Basics Die Grace Build-A-Card die kit. With this one I used it's banner to create my bunting and my sentiment was cut out using one of the older Creative Basic dies Fancy 
Rectangles & layers.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to stop by Passionate Paper & Friends
on Facebook for lots of fun and inspiration!

TLC Faith

Welcome to Passionate Paper Creations.

Hi, Dorinda here, using one of the
brand new Creative Basic Die Sets

I've taken the FaTABulous Die cut the die on one end,
adjusted to frame my cutout. Then cut the other end.
I simply cut a straight line from one cut end to the other to make and adorable new piece.
Then I did it once more using the larger piece.
Finally, a card was born.

This set is amazing, endless ideas and there are three dies to play with.

 See ya soon,

My first Blog post!

Welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations
Hi there all Shell here!
This is my first post for PPC so hopefully I don't break the blog..
Fingers crossed!
 It's been Bloobel Sponsor week on PPC&F and I have had a blast!
And what better way to frame them up than with the Creative Basic Allifair build a card die's.
I love using these when I have an image I'm stuck with. You know all colored up and no place to go! A designer frame takes all the guess work out of how to lay my card design out. I am so finicky on how everything balances out!

For this image I have used Bloobel  Campaign Bottle
and just drawn and colored in the background using copics.
I hope you like it!
