A Crafty Secrets desk set ...

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here we are at the start of another wonderful weekend!
WOW this week has been SO BUSY I haven't even posted anything new since Tuesday (so NOT like me!)  And, my weekend's going to be extremely busy also since it is time once again for the 3-Day Annual Morgan Family Reunion!  YEP!  THREE days!! 

But, before that all begins, I wanted to share with you a little project I worked on earlier in the week.  I have had this wonderful My Time Made Easy Card Catch All template for several years now and FINALLY got around to playing with it!  And, with all the fabulous digital papers/images available through Crafty Secrets, I knew it was time to GET CREATIVE!

This was a lot of fun to create and you could add SO MANY other elements to this desk set organizer (unfortunately I ran out of time to do so). 
I have used the Crafty Secrets RADIANT digital paper for my organizer as well as my cards.
The dragonfly on the corner of the box came from the FREE Digital Summertime Printable.   There are SO MANY wonderful images available on this sheet!  I wanted him to be a bit larger so with the file being DIGITAL I was able to enlarge, crop, print and fussy cut him just the perfect size for today's project.  I did add a bit of crystal effects to give his wings the shine.


For my note cards, I printed another 8 1/2x11 sheet of Radiant paper and created with a variety of themes in mind.  Keeping in mind I wanted to get all three cards from one printed sheet.

For this first card, I have used the Coffee & Tea Set.
I'm fortunate enough to have both the digital set & acrylic stamp set (no longer available) to play with and chose to use them both.  That is how I was able to add the coffee beans to the side embossing as well as the flower centers.

For my second card, I have used the Down on the Farm Stamp Set.
This is still a Clear Art stamp set that I've stamped directly onto the Radiant digital paper and colored in with my Spectrum Noir pencils.  A fancy button that just happened to be laying on the table made for a beautiful flower center!



And for my final note card, I used the left over scraps of my sheet of Radiant digital paper and the Vintage Silhouettes Clear Art stamp set.  The Clear Art stamp set is not longer available in acrylic form but is now available as a Digital Vintage Silhouette set and still a very adorable set for your collection!


Well time is flying and I really must get busy around here!
I hope you've enjoyed my project and hope you'll pop over to check out all the amazing products available at the Crafty Secrets Store!  
Before I go ... another quick reminder!
Sandy has promised to put together a Fall themed Blowout Sale package along the same lines as our current wonderful Summer Blowout Sale Kit.  Have you seen it yet?  (My friend Terri just purchased it and she said it is AMAZING and the one stamp set alone is worth the price of the entire kit!!!!

This amazing sale pack contains nearly $80 worth of Crafty Secrets goodies for just $19,95 plus $4.95 Priority shipping.  We are trying to empty out our U.S. warehouse so that Sandy can stop making the commute from her home in Canada.  It's an amazing deal.  As soon as she has the Fall sale kit put together, I'll be sure to share it here.

Okay that's it for me today and probably the entire weekend!
